Waylaid Supplies Reputation Guide for Season of Discovery

Blizzard has put through a round of hotfixes for Season of Discovery, just a few days after launch.

Most notable is a change to how the Metamorphosis rune is obtained. The rune was one of the last to be found and became the subject of a frantic search, finally concluding yesterday. Players complained that a rune that was necessary for warlock tanking was locked behind the raid, forcing them to raid as a dps before they could get it. Senior Game Producer Josh Greenfield posted on Twitter/X earlier today that the rune would be changed due to the feedback. It’s now possible to complete The Orb of Saran’ruk, the first part of the quest chain, at the Zoram Strand outside the raid as well as inside it.

That’s not the only rune among the hotfixes: Earth Shield was another late find due to not actually being obtainable until it was hotfixed. Oops.

The other major change was to Supply Shipment crates, which you can now carry more than one of. That should help players acquire the rep they need for some of the runes a little faster.

You can look over all of the hotfixes in the official blue post below.

Season of Discovery

  • Players questing for “The Orb of Soran’ruk” will now find that The Twilight’s Hammer have invaded the shores of The Zoram Strand near Blackfathom Deeps.
    • Developers’ notes: It wasn’t our original intent for discoveries to take you into raid instances. Now, the enemies needed for completion of a pre-requisite quest for a rune are both in the outdoor world and inside the raid.
  • The quest to discover the Earth Shield shaman rune is now properly available to players. (Was previously not visible due to a bug). Happy hunting!
  • Fixed an issue with the Bael Modan Blunderbuss gun item that caused it to only be usable with arrows rather than bullets.
  • Fixed an issue where Sadistic Fiend would not properly reset when players died.
  • Fixed an issue preventing progress on the Priest quest chain “Secrets of Elune”.
  • Fixed an issue where “Allegiance to the Old Gods” quest was not completable while in a raid group.
  • Carendin the Undercity Warlock will now discreetly dispose of any Acolyte’s Notes stuck in warlocks’ bags. He apologizes for the inconvenience.
  • Your bags can now carry multiple filled Supply Shipment crates.
  • Blackfathom Deeps
    • Fixed an issue on Twilight Lord Kelris when players would incorrectly die if they took a Dream Portal while under the effects of the Dream Eater debuff.
