World of Warcraft (WoW) Classic’s latest Season of Discovery introduces new immersive items, including Comprehension Charms for Mages. These items are crucial for enhancing the Mage playstyle but can be confusing for both veterans and newcomers. Here we’ll be breaking down how to get and use these Comprehension charms effectively.

Where to Find Comprehension Charms in WoW Classic

To begin acquiring Comprehension Charms in WoW Classic’s Season of Discovery, the first step involves completing your Level 2 Mage class quest. This quest is uniform across all races, ensuring a consistent experience for players regardless of their chosen race. You’ll start in your race’s specific starting zone, embarking on a questline that will lead you to your Mage trainer. The key task in this questline is the Spell Research quest.

Successfully completing this quest is not only a rite of passage for budding Mages but also rewards you with three Comprehension Charms. These are important for enhancing your spellcasting abilities, making this quest an essential early goal for any Mage in the game.

Buy Charms From Reagent Vendors

Alternatively, you can acquire Comprehension Charms from Reagent vendors, though it’s pricey. Each charm is 7 Silver, which is quite a bit. Of course, as we’ve already mentioned it’s potentially worth it as they’re indispensable for deciphering specific scrolls and for acquiring Runes along with other items that boost stats.

You can find Players Reagent Vendors in major cities across the game world. For example, in Stormwind City, vendors like Keldric Boucher and Charys Yserian are located at coordinates 55.8, 65.2, and 32.4, 80.0, respectively.

Similar vendors are stationed in other key locations such as Orgrimmar, Ironforge, Darnassus, and Undercity. To aid in locating these NPCs, you can utilize the in-game command /way, followed by the respective coordinates.

How To Use Comprehension Charms

To use Comprehension Charms in WoW Classic’s Season of Discovery, you first need to acquire a specific type of game scroll, such as the “Scroll: LOWER PING WHOMEVER.” Once obtained, you simply click on the Comprehension Charm to activate its effect.

However, it’s important to note that acquiring Rune Engravings, which are integral to this process, aren’t a guaranteed drop. You’ll likely receive random Scrolls instead of the targeted ones. Given the substantial cost associated with each Comprehension Charm, it is advisable to use them wisely, prioritizing them for Spell Scrolls. These have a more significant impact on gameplay compared to the less critical stat-increasing scrolls.

It’s also worth noting that some community members believe there’s an alternative, cost-free method of obtaining these Charms. Apparently, giving books to a specific NPC in the Mage Tower of Elwynn Forest can yeild Comprehension Charms. But full disclosure, we’ve not tried this yet.

So, there you have it. Choose wisely how you use your Comprehension Charms. Given the difficulty of earning gold in WoW Classic compared to its retail version, it’s important to manage your resources carefully. Save your charms for abilities that have a significant impact on your gameplay, rather than on less crucial stat boosts.

That wraps up our guide on comprehension charms, but if you’re playing WoW Classic Season of Discovery and want a handy reference for Rune locations, we have guides on Rogue, Mage, and Paladin classes.
