Glyphs are special consumable items that can be applied to other items, like tools or weapons, which in return grants them special effects. The effects granted vary depending on the glyph applied and may not only affect the item itself but also the player holding the item. All glyphs except the Null and Chaos Glyphs, can only be bought from the Enchanter using Blank Glyphs, which rarely drop from any enemy, and always drop when a boss is defeated for the first time. Glyphs can also be sold back for Blank Glyphs.

Weapons enchanted with any glyph will have its effect displayed as prefix text in its name similarly to modifiers, however the weapon cannot be reforged while the glyph is applied.


The player can apply a glyph by right-clicking with the glyph on the item to enchant it and the effect can be removed via Null Glyphs.
