Inscription is the new profession in WoW Wrath of the Lich King expansion which allows players to alter the cooldown, damage, or mechanics (stun, knockback, DoT, HoT, etc.) of a spell. Without a doubt Inscription is the best combined with Herbalism as your secondary profession which is it's primary gathering profession.

Without further ado, here is the most efficient way to level Inscription but do note that you may have to train glyphs frequently. As you are leveling you can usually learn new glyphs every 5 skillups from the trainer. They will be orange when first learned so make sure you are only using orange glyphs to level unless otherwise specified. If your glyphs turn yellow, head back to the trainer.
