This guide will cover how to get the Melee Specialist rune for Hunters in Season of Discovery. We’ll go over all of the locations and requirements in the walkthrough below as well as any useful tips and tricks.

How to Get the Melee Specialist Rune

The method to get this rune is shared by all classes:

You can get this rune at any level, but you will be killing level 41 elites and running all over Azeroth, so it will be easiest to do at level 40 with a mount.

To get the Melee Specialist rune, go to Deadwind Pass and speak with the Dalaran Agent at Ariden’s Camp in the northeast corner (52, 35) to get an Ariden’s Sigil. You or someone in your party will want to have this trinket equipped for the remaining steps.

Head to each of the following locations and wander around until you get a buff called Dark Presence. You’ll be able to immediately see that you have gained this buff because a pair of yellow eyes will appear over your character’s head. You won’t be able to find it if you’re mounted.

When this buff is active, you can use the trinket to summon a Dark Rider, a level 41 elite. Kill it to loot a relic. The rider in each location drops a specific relic and you will need all seven. Note that you can summon more than one Dark Rider in the same location if multiple people use their trinket, but you only need to summon one for everyone in your party to get the relic.

When you have collected all seven relics, return to the Dalaran Agent to turn them all in for a Supply Bag that contains Rune of Close Combat, which will teach you the rune.
