In anticipation of the imminent release of Phase 4 of Season of Discovery on the Public Test Realm, the developers have shared some details about what we can expect to see in this content update.

Most of the content was already known, but there are a few new tidbits included. For one, we now known that each class will get one set of new runes in the cloak slot. There will also be a set of class-agnostic utility runes added this time around for the ring slots. Additionally, some runes are now going to become baseline abilities and will be replaced by new runes for those slots.

A lot of existing level 60 Vanilla content is being updated for the phase, from dungeons to professions to the Molten Core raid and world bosses.
