Season of Discovery

World of Warcraft Classic: Season of Discovery (abbreviated as SOD) is the second seasonal launch of World of Warcraft: Classic, focused on giving seasoned players the opportunity to find new secrets and shake up the meta by adding additional class options such as warlock and shaman-tanks.


The season launched on 30 November 2023. In order to preserve the sense of discovery, there was no PTR for Season of Discovery.[1]

Narrative changes

After its announcement there was speculation whether or not Season of Discovery existed as a retcon or alternate timeline to the original World of Warcraft: Classic. At a Community Council Q&A there was confirmation that it would be neither: SoD exists with a "found photograph" narrative, that further contextualizes the characters and places from Classic without altering or reframing things in any dramatic fashion.[7]

Among the new quest-related NPCs are:

The new world events are the following:

There are also other sources of world lore, such as the  [Apocryphal Epiphany] questline which adds lore to the Scarlet Monastery and Kyross, or  [Spell Notes: Hot Streak] that tells that a fire elemental was once bound to the forge of Strahnbrad.
