WoW: Classic's Season of Discovery is meant to retain a good chunk of the leveling experience while gradually increasing the level cap to its original limit across multiple phases. Rune Engraving adds skills that open up new playstyles, discoveries prompt us to search for secrets, while the Blackfathom Deeps raid throws new challenges our way.
WoW: Classic Season of Discovery New Tier Sets
But that's not all we can expect from WoW: Classic's Season of Discovery. As revealed in an interview with Wowhead, Blizzard plans to keep iconic raids such as Molten Core as part of its newest experience.
"I think players will want to be able to express themselves as their character in these iconic locations," the developer said.
"I think there is room for us to provide additional challenges in old raids, whether that's something we borrow from Season of Mastery or something new entirely. Ultimately, people want to be able to flex and show off their new builds, their runes, and show Ragnaros who's boss. Those raids are still such an iconic part of Classic WoW and we can't take those outs (sic!)."
The prospect of playing as a healing mage or a tanking warlock is part of why some of us will consider giving World of Warcraft: Classic's Season of Discovery a shot.
This naturally raises the question of whether or not we'll see new tier sets to support these playstyles.
"I think that's on the table," the developer said, answering to a direct question regarding these items.
If Cataclysm Classic isn't quite your cup of tea, chances are that WoW: Classic's Season of Discovery has made its way onto your radar.
Revisiting raids like Molten Core while potentially having new tier sets to chase is a great way to build upon some of the MMORPG's old concepts while refreshing them at the same time.
And, while they may not be immediately available, we'll at least be able to begin our journey in just a few weeks, on November 30, when World of Warcraft: Classic's Season of Discovery goes live.
