WoW Classic Season of Discovery Phase 2 release date

WoW Classic Season of Discovery Phase 2 changes

Here's what's new about Phase 2 of WoW Classic Season of Discovery:

  • Level Cap Increase: The level cap will be raised to 40, providing players with access to crucial skills in their spell book.
  • Additional Talent Points: Players will now have a total of 31 talent points, allowing them to reach the bottom of their talent trees if they choose to specialize in a single specific talent.
  • Mount Access at Level 40: Basic 60% mounts will become available at Level 40.
  • New Runes: Runes are coming for every class.
  • Gnomeregan Raid: A new raid featuring a unique take on Gnomeregan will be introduced, transforming it into a raid dungeon rather than a regular one.

While the increase to level 40 might seem modest, the time it takes to level up ensures that players won't be bored, given the additional levels and the new content that comes with them. Also, Phase 3 will be following soon after Phase 2, which is bound to contain even more new content to keep WoW Classic feeling fresh.
