The experimental nature of World of Warcraft: Season of Discovery leaves it open to interesting requests from players. With Phase Two set to launch on February 8, some players want a later expansion staple included as part of the class’s additional abilities.

For those unfamiliar with the premise, Season of Discovery was designed to be a refreshed experience within Classic Azeroth. Widely seen as Blizzard testing the waters for Classic+, the seasonal offering has changed a lot about the way classes function.

The Rune Engraving system has allowed players to augment their classes with new abilities and buffs tied to their armor pieces. These range from entirely fresh creations to spells and powers that players wouldn’t usually be able to see until later versions of the game.

Now, some players are calling for a Mage staple to make an appearance in Phase Two of Season of Discovery.

WoW community wants the Refreshment Table in Season of Discovery

In a post on Reddit, one player called on Blizzard to add the Refreshment Table to the game as soon as the next phase launches.

The Refreshment Table was essentially added to the game during The Burning Crusade. At the time, it was known as the Ritual of Refreshment before it was changed in Mists of Pandaria. It then later merged into Conjure Refreshment during Legion.

The essential advantage that it offers is that groups can take advantage of it more easily. The table produces Conjured Mana Food, which anyone can take. This is markedly easier than the Season of Discovery’s current system of conjuring tons of water for individuals.

The responses to the post are overwhelmingly positive, with many agreeing that it should be in the game. One said: “If not, I hope people are chill with not getting any f**king water from mages, cuz I’m not going OOM just to give one person half a stack.”

Others suggested sensible alternative solutions. One said: “The current mage water at 25 isn’t the highest tier you can get. Yet people still want that free water over buying level 25 water. Best thing to do is just give people the level 35 water at 20 per cast, rather than the level 40 water.”

Whatever Blizzard does provide in Season of Discovery Phase Two, there will likely still be plenty of raid prep for Mages. With Phase Two launching this week, it won’t take long to find out.”
