wow classic season of discovery sod

Season of Discovery’s announcement at Blizzcon introduces a wide array of new playstyles available. These are enabled by a series of new abilities available to each class using a new system similar to enchants/glyphs (but applied to items) called rune engravings. You can see all available runes in our Season of Discovery Talent Calculator.

We’ve made a table below of available class and role combinations that players can choose.

DPS (Melee)
DPS (Ranged)
Hunters may potentially have tank options due to the Beast Mastery rune engraving.

New Roles

New roles available for players in SoD.

Enhanced Roles

Is it just me who thinks these changes are a bit too drastic? If it was retail I would not bet an eye, but I think its a bit too much for classic honestly.

I agree. To have a “new” kind of game, they needed to do drastic changes. I’ve not tried it yet but I will once I get my drac to 70 on retail lol
