Disambig icon.png This article is about the gathering tool upgrade. For the skill type, see Glyph.

Glyphs are upgrade components that can be applied to gathering tools to provide bonus effects when gathering.

Acquisition[edit]

Glyphs may be acquired via the following methods:

Mechanics[edit]

  • Glyphs may be applied to unused glyph slots found only on gathering tools.
  • Glyphs may be swapped in and out freely without using an upgrade extractor.
    • When attempting to apply a glyph to a tool with a glyph, the new glyph will be applied and the old one will be sent to your inventory.
    • To remove a glyph, you can right click and select "Remove Upgrade."
  • Glyphs applied to limited-use tools will return to the player's inventory after the final gathering charge is consumed.
