This guide has been updated with all the Runes from Phase 1, Phase 2, and Phase 3 of Season of Discovery.

Runes are a new gameplay mechanic in SoD. It offers additional spells and abilities, allowing you to transform the playstyle of your character’s class. 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 and 6 to 7 new Runes in Phase 2. At the moment of writing, there are 6 to 7 new Runes in Phase 3. Previously, we have discussed all SoD Paladin Runes and their locations. You can check it out here:

Below is the complete list of Priest 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: Priest Meditation Mechanic

To unlock the Priest Runes, having an active Meditation buff is essential, with some requiring two buffs. These buffs last for 4 hours, persist through death, and are acquired by meditating (/kneel) at specific worship spots.b

Initially, your character can only access Meditation buffs that align with their race’s faith. For instance:

To obtain a second Meditation buff, one efficient method is to /kneel in front of a Priest who has a different faith buff and have them /pray while targeting you. By sharing their active Meditations, you can acquire additional buffs crucial for accessing the latter set of Runes in phase one.
