Each new Rune can drastically change your playstyle. In Season of Discovery, Shamans can take on the role of a melee DPS, ranged DPS, healer, and even a tank. Naturally, you can mix and match Runes as you like, and once you learn them, you don’t have to go back into the world to seek them out again.

Here are all Shaman Runes available in WoW Classic Season of Discovery.
