Runes have been a major feature of Season of Discovery. They allow players to take on new roles in certain classes by adding certain abilities. So far, in the first phase, each class received 12 runes, and fresh ones are coming alongside the second phase. On Jan. 30, Blizzard revealed two upcoming runes for each class (except for Shaman) in WoW Classic SoD phase two.
