These Runes are scattered throughout the open world, obtainable through various sources. Most Runes are accessible to characters of any race or faction, except those tied to specific quests or faction-friendly mobs.

There are 12 runes for each class in Phase 1. Below is the complete list of Mage Runes in Season of Discovery, how to get them, their locations, and even coordinates for your convenience. 

Special thanks to the WoW community, and especially our readers at WowVendor, for the invaluable contribution in uncovering the Runes and generously sharing the methods of acquiring them with the whole gaming community.

Specific Class Mechanic in SoD: Mage Comprehension Charm Mechanic

Mages can finish their faction-specific Spell Research (Alliance) and Spell Research (Horde) quests to acquire the Comprehension Charm. These charms are used to convert Scrolls and Spell Notes into usable items, particularly for unlocking Rune Engravings. They can also work with random scrolls discovered in the open world, like Scroll: LOWER PING WHOMEVER.

The Comprehension Charm is available for purchase from certain Reagent Vendors in major cities. You can also obtain it a reward by turning in special books found in the open world.

Librarian List for Icy Veins. Delete Adair Gilroy – he’s a vendor only – doesn’t have the quests for the books. Garon Wendell does. I didn’t check any of the others.
