Inscribability or an inscription slot is an inherent property of some weapons which allows them to accept inscriptions. The system was introduced with Guild Wars Nightfall.

Inscribable weapons drop

The introduction of inscribable versions of a weapon has led to confusion, as it is not immediately obvious whether a weapon has an inscription slot or not. The text "Inscription: None" or "Inscription: <Inscription name>" in the weapon description reveals that an item is inscribable. If the description does not contain this text, the weapon cannot be inscribed.


  • Weapons without inscription slots are almost always called "old school" or "OS" weapons in the trade channel.
