Phase 2 is underway in WoW Classic: Season of Discovery, and with it comes new items and content for players to dive into. One of the more notable additions is the new Skill Books, items that provide new skills and some quality-of-life improvements to existing ones that players can find during their dungeon exploits.
To ensure you know where to find these items and what they can do, we’ve put together this guide with all the details on these new Skill Books found in Season of Discovery.
What are Skill Books?
Skill Books are quality-of-life items added to phase 2 of Season of Discovery and work separately from the Runes that feature heavily in the season.
These items allow players to learn new skills or enhance their existing ones to address some concerns and issues players have raised and flesh out their toolkits with a few extra abilities. Some will be a new spell that might address mana regeneration, while others may provide a buff to an underperforming ability or provide a new one to fill a niche.
In the grand scheme of the game, they are more things for players to use as they play, which is always a plus.
