Molten Core Loot Guide – Season of Discovery (SoD)

Molten Core Loot Guide - Season of Discovery (SoD)

Reworked for Season of Discovery, the iconic Molten Core raid offers plenty of new and revamped loot for level 60 characters. From numerous new versions of Tier 1 gear sets to powerful epic and legendary weapons, there are drops to tempt every class and role!

This guide is currently based on a combination of datamined information and the original loot from Vanilla WoW. We won’t know for sure what loot drops or from what boss until after the raid releases on July 25th.

New Difficulty Levels

Along with the rework of the raid, Blizzard has added scalable difficulty levels where you can “turn up the heat.” Higher difficulty levels drop the same loot, but more of it, increasing your chances of seeing the items you want.

Tier 1 Sets

The original Tier 1 raid gear in Vanilla WoW offered only one set for each class. In Season of Discovery, each build has its own set with unique stats and set bonuses as well as a recolored appearance to separate it visually from its siblings.

Tier pieces can be obtained by turning in the appropriate token. These tokens drop from bosses in Molten Core, although we don’t know which ones. Each slot has its own token, and the following classes share token types:

  • Incandescent: Priest, Mage, Warlock
  • Scorched Core: Warrior, Rogue, Druid
  • Molten Scaled: Paladin, Hunter, Shaman

Crafting Recipes

These are the profession recipes that dropped in Molten Core in the original version of the raid. We should see these again in Season of Discovery, and maybe some new ones as well!

Boss Drops

As well as Tier 1 tokens, each boss has a chance to drop several other pieces of valuable endgame loot. Most of these items have been reitemized from their original versions. It’s possible that they will not all drop, or that they won’t drop from the same bosses as before.

Unknown

These items are completely new for Season of Discovery, and we have no idea which bosses might drop them. It’s likely that most of these items will be obtained from the new 11th boss! Some may in fact drop from other content altogether.
