Non-Spoiler Riddle Rune Locations for Season of Discovery Phase 2

Recommended Posts


If you don't quite feel like running around Azeroth looking for the SoD Phase 2 runes, but also don't really want to just have their locations and the way to unlock them handed to you on a silver plate, we have just the thing for you! In an awesome addition to the mystery that is Season of Discovery, Methuzahla over at Preach Gaming has a list of all the so far discovered runes - but they're all hidden with riddles! 

The actual discovery part of the latest addition to WoW Classic has been great, but as the zones covered in the expanded level range get larger and larger, it does make sense to get some idea of where to look. And for those that don't want explicit spoilers, this is the perfect way to get started and still preserve that mystery and sense of accomplishment! Of course the ultimate version of that is just going for it yourself, but depending on your time available that may not be an option.

So check out the page and dive into an added layer of mystery solving, and discover some runes!

This all started back in Phase 1, when Methuzala did the same for Preach's Warrior, and it's not been expanded and is an amazing addition to SoD, so thanks a lot and we hope to see it in all future phases!

      Blizzard will be increasing the drop rate for Librams of Resilience in BRD and BRS, as well as Burning Essence rates from the Dark Coffer with a hotfix today. They also explained some of the fire resistance numbers found in today's Molten Core post, pointing out that those listed were fully buffed.
      We agree, actually. We are sending a hotfix very soon to add a chance for Librams of Resilence to drop from certain Blackrock Depths and Blackrock Spire bosses, and increase the liklihood you get Burning Essence from the Dark Coffer in Blackrock Depths. This should help make these items a bit more available, but still require the same process and ceremony to complete the arcanum.
      I want to also take this opportunity to also clarify that the fire resistance numbers listed in the blog post are fully buffed. So that ~100 fire resistance breakpoint for Blistering/Heat 2 only requires you to have ~40 unbuffed if you have a shaman or paladin in your group. For many classes that is a single item and the new +20 Fire Resist cloak enchant from Hydraxian Waterlords reputation. For Molten/Heat 3 you’ll need to do a bit more prep and that is intended, but as alluded in my previous post, Heat 2 should be very approachable for almost anyone.

      Blizzard have detailed the changes coming to Molten Core in Phase 4 of Season of Discovery, from the new Heat mechanic to the new boss behind it (with no unique loot)! The raid opens tomorrow, July 25th, at 1 PM PDT/10 PM CET! 
      Molten Core (Source)
      The temperature rises with the release of Molten Core on 25 July, at 21:00 BST. Season of Discovery is presented with a unique challenge, as a new “Heat” mechanic is introduced in the Molten Core, which is not to be taken lightly.
      When you first zone into Molten Core, speak with a Hydraxian Waterlords NPC at the entrance to choose one of three different Heat levels—Sweltering, Blistering, or Molten—with an increase in difficulty at each level.
      If things get too hot to handle, you can swap Heat levels anytime. Simply speak with the NPC at the entrance to the Molten Core while not in combat. You will also have another opportunity to swap Heat level again with NPCs that spawn after using Aqual Quintessence to douse boss runes.
      Sweltering Heat – Level 1 The easiest of the three modes is designed to be approachable to almost all groups. Sweltering Heat is for those visiting the Molten Core who are less prepared to handle the Heat—fewer consumables, fewer fire resist buffs, etc. Blistering Heat – Level 2 A normal mode that requires more coordination and basic preparation. For those who have a moderate amount of consumables, enchants, buffs, nominal fire resistance, etc., Blistering Heat should be a breeze. Gear rewards for Blistering Heat are the same as Sweltering Heat, with an additional drop for most bosses. Recommended Fire Resistance: +96 or higher Molten Heat – Level 3 The Heat turns up in Molten Heat for skilled groups prepared to face the fire. The rewards for Molten Heat are the same as Blistering Heat, with a few additional items available from later in the Raid, along with unique weapon cosmetics. Recommended Fire Resistance: +226 or higher Can You Handle the Heat?
      With each heat level comes increased difficulty with additional mechanics, damage, and an increased requirement for “fire resistance.” In original World of Warcraft, Resistance was often an inconsistent statistic. Sometimes, you would fully resist all damage; sometimes, you would resist none, even with the maximum fire resistance being worn. Resistances still work this way; however, once you get to Blistering Heat or Molten Heat, those difficulties will require a certain amount of fire resistance to progress consistently, and the required amount will increase between Blistering and Molten Heat levels. This is an additional layer to the usual “have some resist gear and hope it saves your healers some mana” mechanic from the original WoW. Some mechanics could leave you burnt to a crisp if you don't meet the required Fire Resistance requirements.
      We point this out because the need for resistance and resistance fights has long been contentious in World of Warcraft. While it’s an iconic part of WoW, it’s easy to see in hindsight that it’s not always a great feeling to be incentivized to NOT wear your best gear for appropriate fights. We recognize this, and that’s part of why we felt it important to explain the intended design of this mechanic. One of the most fun and iconic things about Classic is preparation (or, at times, over-preparation) for challenges, and the base game heavily rewards players for that preparation. We want to use fire resistance to play up that aspect of raid preparation and promote healthy and satisfying gear progression as you gear up within Molten Core.
      When you first enter the Molten Core and want to tackle Blistering or Molten Heat difficulty, you may need to wear sub-optimal pieces of gear simply to survive. Fairly quickly, however, more and more gear will drop in the raid that is optimal for you to be wearing, including tier sets, which you will notice all already have a certain amount of fire resistance. The idea here is that as you obtain items you want to wear, they convey much of the same benefit as the less powerful pieces of fire resistance you may have farmed or crafted before your first trips into Molten Core. The eventual goal of this gear progression is to allow you to succeed on the highest difficulty level primarily by using your tier set, appropriate group or raid buffs and consumables, and good group coordination.
      A New Boss Heats Things Up
      Lastly, the Molten Core raid will have an additional not-yet-known bonus boss. When Molten Core releases, this bonus boss will only be available for Molten Heat, requiring players to clear every boss before gaining access. This boss is an optional challenge that groups can work towards over time.
      We do not wish to gate exclusive rewards behind this challenging content. Because this boss will be tricky and require progression through the rest of Molten Core on the highest difficulty, the boss will NOT drop unique or exclusive loot. Instead, he will drop tier gear tokens and a chance at a few other exciting items, but all gear can be obtained elsewhere in the Molten Core.
      We hope to see a wide variety of groups attempt Molten Heat difficulty, have a satisfying progression, and not feel like they are missing out on exclusive power-impacting gear if they aren’t able to clear every boss on Molten Heat each week. Like many things in Season of Discovery, this is an experiment—we hope to use lessons we learn from this boss and the Heat system and apply those lessons to future Classic Raid tiers and potential future content.
      We hope this helps set the groundwork for what to expect going into the Molten Core and also helps illustrate our intentions for resistance fights and Raid difficulty with this raid tier. We want to emulate the feeling of gear progression from original WoW as much as possible, with the added benefit of more powerful, bespoke gear for a wider variety of playstyles within each class.
      We look forward to seeing you beat the heat in Molten Core and Onyxia!

      With the addition of World Boss instances raids, it seems Season of Discovery has run into a hiccup, as players were unable to properly resurrect! Blizzard are working on the issues and as a temporary fix, players will be respawning at the Westfall/Barrens graveyards before showing up at the intended one momentarily. 
      Resurrections (Source)
      We’re currently working to address an issue with resurrection. For the time being:
      When dying and releasing inside of each raid, you will momentarily be ported to Westfall or the Barrens before being transported to the correct graveyard. Thank you for your patience!

      Phase 4 moves forward as we finally get the World Bosses showing up! We have Kazzak and Azuregos as the new instanced encounters live today, while we still have the raids to look forward to next week! 
      World Bosses (Source)
      Experience world bosses, Lord Kazzak and Azuregos as instanced encounters with up to 40 players.
      World Bosses Now Live
      Experience Lord Kazzak and Azuregos as brand-new instanced versions of these encounters. These encounters can be experienced with up to 40 players but will be tuned as 20-player content, making them both pick-up-group-friendly with 40 players, but also giving players the option to maximize their rewards by attempting them with 20-players.
      Onyxia's Lair and Molten Core Go Live on July 25
      Prepare to take on Ragnaros and Onyxia in their lairs on July 25 at 1:00 p.m. PDT globally.

      Experience Molten core as a 20-player dungeon with 10 classic bosses (+1,) revamped loot, redesigned Tier 1 sets, and more. Players will also be able to turn up the heat with a new variable difficulty mechanic allowing players to earn more rewards from undertaking a higher difficulty. Don’t forget your fire resist gear! You are going to need it. We’ll be adding one more surprise to this classic raid dungeon for intrepid adventurers to discover.
      Onyxia will also be adjusted to accommodate 40 or fewer players along with some additional loot adjustments.
      New Raid Lockout interval
      Raid lockouts for Season of Discovery Phase 4 raids will occur regularly once a week for Molten Core and two times a week on static reset days for Onyxia’s Lair, Lord Kazzak, and Azuregos. Players in North America will have their resets for these bosses on Tuesdays and Saturdays, in Europe, on Wednesdays and Sundays, and in Asia on Thursdays and Mondays.
      Gather your allies and go forth to battle!

      Here come more hotfixes!

      Season of Discovery
      The tooltip for the Draconic Infused Emblem is now correct. The spell effect is not changed. Blackrock Eruption The Drained of Blood aura from the Stranglethorn Vale PvP event is now applied when participating in the Blackrock Mountain PvP event. This applies to players exiting instances in Blackrock Mountain. Druid Flame Wrath has been redesigned with a lower spell power ratio on the Thorns portion of the proc and an internal cooldown for Feral Druids. Hunter Trap Launcher will no longer augment Frost Trap. Developers’ notes: A Trap Launcher version of Frost Trap has only existed in versions of WoW in which mobility and freedom effects were more plentiful. Without them, the safety and agency a 9-15 second ranged Frost Trap grants Hunters is simply too much. We’re making it so that Hunters either need to put themselves at risk in order to place a Frost Trap or have someone engage on them to trigger it. Mage Conjure Water Rank 7 will now create 20 water per cast. The tooltip may not reflect this change for a while. All ranks of Mana Shield will no longer stack when Advanced Warding is engraved. All ranks of Advanced Warding’s Mana Shield are now canceled when the rune is unequipped or when someone absorbs damage and the caster no longer has the rune equipped. All ranks of Mana Shield are removed when the Advanced Warding Rune is equipped. Shaman Burn will now persist through death and not require you to recast Flametongue Weapon again. Warlock Fel Rift spawn rates have increased. The chance of finding Legion Portal Tuners and associated tools has increased. Rune of Decimation is now guaranteed from an overcharged portal.
