And now, it’s Warlock’s time! Below is the complete list of Warlock 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 on WowVendor, for the invaluable contribution in uncovering the Runes and generously sharing the methods of acquiring them with the whole gaming community.
