Glyph of Order

The Glyph of Order is the most confusing of the Glyphs but also the most useful. The Glyph of Order has an effect that states, “Prevents the roll of an affix within its range changing when it is upgraded.” This simply means that it preserves the roll of the affix on the item you are crafting, allowing you to keep any good rolls that you might have gotten.

Now that you have Glyphs, you can use them by opening the forge menu. This is done by pressing the F key. With the menu open, place an item in the forge and then place a Glyph in the diamond slot beneath the item. After this, go about crafting like normal by selecting an affix to apply to your weapon or armor piece.

That is everything you need to know about these crafting materials. Be sure to also check out how to get Runes in Last Epoch. You can also check out how to get blessings in Last Epoch.
