The Elder Scrolls is one of the most important role-playing video games in the industry and has been a fan favorite ever since the first game was released.
While the series was always successful, it wasn’t until The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was released that the long-running franchise finally saw mainstream success. This is not a surprise since the game was less complicated than its predecessors but offered a lot of new content that pleased newcomers and long-term fans alike.
Naturally, when a franchise is so successful, developers tap into its potential as an online game and that’s what brings us to The Elder Scrolls Online, which is a full-fledged massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) and has won over a consistent fanbase with its fun gameplay that no other game offers.
One of the most important things in The Elder Scrolls Online is its craft system which is very varied and useful. Out of the seven different professions that you can choose in the game, if you select Enchanter, you’re able to craft Glyphs at the enchanting table.
So, we’ve created a guide to set you up on the right path in your crafting adventures and save your precious time. Here’s how to craft Trifling Glyphs in Elder Scrolls Online!
What are Trifling Glyphs in ESO?
Before we get into how you can craft Trifling Glyphs in ESO, let’s take a moment to talk about what they are first for anyone who is unaware. Glyphs are crafted using runestones if you play as the Enchanter profession and they basically act as buffs for your health, magicka, and stamina stats.
There are many different types of Glyphs, so you need to make sure that you find the right runestones for them and know what strength of your character you wish to enhance. What makes Trifling Glyphs great specifically is the fact that they have the least potency and low gear level requirements.
This makes them a good pick for seasoned players as their time is saved and for new players too since they won’t have to level up too much to use them.
An important factor to notice here is that the runestones have different qualities and the strength of the enhancements you receive are determined by that aspect. So, if you get the right runestone and also make sure that it’s in good quality, the buffs you will receive will be for the right aspect and also quite strong.
The only catch here is that you can only apply Trifling Glyphs to items that have levels between the numbers 1 to 10.
How to make Trifling Glyphs in The Elder Scrolls Online
To craft any Glyph, you need three runestones. As the name implies, you can usually find them around ruins. And if you’re not in the mood to go looking for them on your own, you can buy them from Enchanters as well, who happen to be in the same profession as you.
And as mentioned above, the efficiency of every Glyph that you make is related to the runestone you used to create them.
There are four Trifling Glyphs you can create, which are the Trifling Glyph of Health, Magicka, Stamina, and Prismatic Defense. When you collect or buy the runestones needed to craft the Glyphs, simply head to the Enchanting Table and begin your work.
Here are the different runestones required for each unique Trifling Glyph:
Trifling Glyph of Stamina
The Trifling Glyph of Stamina allows your character to utilize their maximum stamina. You need the Jora potency runestone, Ta aspect runestone, and the Deni essence runestone to craft this Glyph.
This will allow you to last longer in terms of things that require stamina, which can be very useful for players who like to travel a lot and go on long journeys. The strength of the buffs received is based on the quality of the runestones, so try to make sure you find yourself the right ones.
- Normal – Ta – +70 Stamina
- Fine – Jejota – +75 Stamina
- Superior – Denata – +80 Stamina
- Epic – Rekuta – +84 Stamina
- Legendary – Kuta – +91 Stamina
Trifling Glyph of Health
The Glyph of Health, as the name implies, allows you to max out your character’s health. You need the Jora potency runestone, Oko essence runestone, and the Ta aspect runestone to craft the Trifling Glyph of Health.
This allows you to last much longer, which is very useful for almost every role in the game. Whether you’re a brute or a support player, not dying sooner in complicated situations will greatly benefit you.
- Normal – Ta – +77 Health
- Fine – Jejota – +82 Health
- Superior – Denata – +88 Health
- Epic – Rekuta – +92 Health
- Legendary – Kuta – +100 Health
Trifling Glyph of Prismatic Defense
This Trifling Glyph allows you to increase all three of your main statistics in one go, although of course, the number is lower than what you would get individually.
You need the Jora potency runestone, Hakeijo essence runestone, and the Ta aspect runestone to make the Trifling Glyph of Prismatic Defense. If you can’t make up your mind on which individual skill to buff, then this will certainly do the job for you as it increases a bit of everything.
- Normal – Ta – ++35 Magicka, +38 Health, +38 Stamina
- Fine – Jejota – +37 Magicka, +41 Health, +37 Stamina
- Superior – Denata – +40 Magicka, +44 Health, +40 Stamina
- Epic – Rekuta – +42 Magicka, +46 Health, +42 Stamina
- Legendary – Kuta – +45 Magicka, +50 Health, +45 Stamina
Trifling Glyph of Magicka
If you’re looking to increase your Magicka in the game so that you can craft spells for longer, then the Trifling Glyph of Prismatic Defense is what you’re looking for.
To make the Trifling Glyph of Prismatic Defense you need Jora potency runestone, Hakeijo essence runestone, and the Ta aspect runestone. The efficiency of the buffs you receive are, as usual, dependent on how high the quality of the runes is.
- Normal – Ta – +70 Magicka
- Fine – Jejota – +75 Magicka
- Superior – Denata – +80 Magicka
- Epic – Rekuta – +84 Magicka
- Legendary – Kuta – +91 Magicka
And that concludes the guide for what Trifling Glyphs are and how you can craft them using the appropriate runestones needed for their production – as well as what overall effect the Glyphs have on your character statistics.
It’s certainly always a good idea to buff your health, Magicka, and stamina, so it’s no wonder that this can be quite a lengthy process in the long run. But it’s certainly one of the easier ones in comparison.
