When it comes to the best Tank classes WoW SoD players have a lot of choices, including three new classes that couldn’t Tank in WoW Classic before.

In SoD Phase 3 Paladins have access to seven new Runes which can be equipped on the Bracer/Wrist and Head gear. This guide covers all of the new Paladin Runes SoD P3 introduces, including details on each Rune’s effects and how to acquire them. Be sure to check our companion pieces for information on Paladin Runes in Phases One and Two, as these are not included below.

Updated April 11, 2024 by Erik Petrovich: Now that players have had time to delve into SoD Phase 3, and hunt down all seven new Paladin Runes, every Paladin Rune in SoD P3 has finally been Discovered – except for the Light’s Grace Rune location, which yet eludes players. To get all Phase 3 Paladin Runes, SoD players will have to travel to many different locations and complete a variety of tasks, but two P3 Rune quests are shared amongst all classes. By acquiring Wild Offerings through a new SoD P3 questline, and by raising your Reputation with the Emerald Wardens to Friendly, all classes can buy one new SoD P3 Rune – Paladins included – for two per class. This guide has been updated to describe how to get all Paladin Runes SoD Phase 3 has for players to equip in their Head and Bracer slots – just remember to open the Discovery box and read the specific details of each new Paladin Rune location hidden below each entry.

To preserve the sense of mystery intended for the Season of Discovery, each Phase 3 SoD Paladin Rune location is hidden by default. Open the “Click to Reveal” box to show location details.
