WoW Classic players can now enjoy the Season of Discovery (SoD) which introduced various Runes to WoW to enhance the Mage class.
World of Warcraft (WoW) is an explorative video game that takes place within the world of Azeroth.
You can control a Warcraft hero to explore an open game, fight a range of monsters, complete quests and progress through dungeons as well as raids.
Mage SoD Runes
Blizzard recently released a major update for WoW Classic, which essentially recreates WoW in the state that it was in before the release of its first expansion.
The Season of Discovery update introduced several new features that WoW Classic players can enjoy, however, the biggest addition is the new Rune system.
Runes can be assigned to equipment slots and can provide your character with powerful passive effects.
Keep in mind though that the Runes you can use are determined by your character’s class. For the Mages, there are 12 Runes that can enhance your character’s capabilities.
It is important to note that every Rune has unique effects and bonuses. This new system essentially allows players to customize their character builds even more, however, you will only be able to equip Runes once your character has reached level 25.
The Runes you have to use for your character will depend on the type of Mage you are. This means that the DPS Fire Mage will not use the same Runes as the Healing Arcane Mage.
We therefore recommend that you carefully consider which type of Mage you want to be before farming and equipping the Runes.
Best Mage Runes
When you have decided which Mage you want to be, you can equip the following Runes to your items to enhance their capabilities:
How to acquire the Runes
Players have to complete a quest, vanquish a monster or open a chest in order to unlock a specific Rune. The table outlines how you can acquire the best Runes for each type of mage:

How to equip Runes
Once you have acquired the Runes that you want to equip on your items, you have to open the Equipment screen to find the list of known Runes.
In the list, you have to select the Rune that you want to equip and once it is selected, all equipment slots will gray out except the one that the Rune can be engraved on.
You can then select the item to equip the Rune, but keep in mind that you may have to wait a few seconds for the process to complete.
In addition to the Runes mentioned above, you can use the following Runes on your Mage in WoW:
|Fingers of Frost
|Gives your Chille effects a 15 percent chance to grant you the Fingers of Frost effect.
|You will deal 10 percent additional damage and you have more than 70 percent mana.
|It hastens your spellcasting by increasing spell casting speed by 20 percent.
|Your current target with your Temporal Beacon instantly heals all damage taken in the last 5 seconds.
