Glyphwords in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt are a category of Equipment Upgrades that Geralt can use to improve his gear. Glyphwords are introduced with the Hearts of Stone DLC and they can be imbued onto Chest Armor that have 3 Slots, much like Glyphs. Unlike Glyphs, only 1 Glyphword can be applied on an Armor piece as they take up all available slots. However, Glyphwords grant far more substantial effects which can drastically change your playstyle or complement your preferred skillsets. Glyphword enchanting is a service provided exclusively by the Runewright at the Upper Mill in Brunwich in Redania.
- See the Upgrades page for mechanics pertaining to Glyphwords
- In order to unlock the Runewright's services, you must first complete the quests Enchanting: Start-up Costs and Enchanting: Quality Has Its Price.
- Glyphwords are crafted from various Glyphs.
- Glyphwords are classified by Level, up to Level 3. After completing the above quests, you will have access to Level 1 Glyphwords. In order to unlock Level 2, you must donate a hefty additional 10,000 crowns for the Runewright's tools, and then another 15,000 crowns for Level 3. Note that these upgrades are shared with Runewords.
