Glyphs are an endgame system used to build your character further. Depending on the glyphs, characters can differ a lot. Here is everything you need to know about them.

Diablo 4, being an ARPG, has all the traits of this genre. It has a big skill tree along with ways to customize the character. The campaign of Diablo 4 is only a taste of what is to come. After completing the story, the world will open up to you, and for many players, this is where the real game starts.

For veteran Diablo players, the glyph system will be right at home. This is the system most of the Diablo games use. But for the newer player base, it can often become overwhelming. But fear not; here, we have broken down everything you need to know about glyphs in Diablo 4.

What are Glyphs in Diablo 4

Glyphs are different endgame perks that drop from the enemies and provide the players with bonus effects when slotted into the character. Glyphs will only drop after you complete your first Capston dungeon. That means you will have to reach world tier 3 to get these drops.

Getting a good glyph is just as important as having the best gears on your character. And depending on how you use it, glyphs can be boosted further to increase the effect they give.

How to Use Glyphs in Diablo 4

The glyphs system is tied with another in-game mechanism called the Paragon Board. Paragon Board unlocks at level 50. You will get a paragon point each time you level up after level 50. Then you can use the paragon points to unlock a slot in the paragon board. After that, you can slot in your preferred glyphs on the board.

The slots you unlock on the Paragon board are permanent. But slotting a glyph doesn’t mean it will become permanent on the board. You can slot in and out glyphs as you wish on the board. So make sure to experiment with it to find out what works best for you.
