However, when it comes to specific Shaman Runes, keep on reading!

What are Runes or Rune Engravings in Season of Discovery?

In WoW Classic’s Season of Discovery, Runes serve as items that are slotted into gear, granting passive effects or unlocking new spells or abilities for the character. They are exclusive to this particular season and are not available in other iterations of the game. Blizzard has implemented the rune system as a means to explore new class fantasies and to address balancing issues by empowering weaker specs. Furthermore, some runes offer effects that enable classes to fulfill entirely new roles, expanding gameplay possibilities. For instance, a Warlocks and Rogue can become a Tank, Mages can be Healers etc.

Each rune is designed for a specific gear slot. Phase 1 of the Season of Discovery introduced runes for the Chest, Hands, and Legs slots. Phase 2 expands upon this by introducing runes for the Waist and Feet slots. Additional runes for other equipment slots are slated to be introduced in subsequent phases of the season.

Note: The notable features of runes is their flexibility. They can be swapped out at any time, provided your character is not in combat. You can expect to receive your first rune through a Quest from your Class trainer at level 2. As the Season of Discovery progresses through further phases, additional runes will be introduced, that will change the gameplay experience and providing everyone with more options for customization and specialization.

Why are Runes important to a Shaman?

Shaman Runes are important in SoD because of the effect that they have on the Class overall. With certain Runes that became available in Season of Discovery, the Shaman gameplay can change drastically and be more competitive compared to other Classes in the game.

An important note is that the Shaman is definitely one of those Classes that ‘got it all’ via the Runes system. Whether you wish to be a Two-Handed Shaman, an Elemental destroying your opponents with Lava Burst and Lightning, or if you wanted to Dual-Wield and even Tank – you can do it all!

Lets see which Shaman Runes can help you pop-off and how early you can do it!
