The Shaman class in World of Warcraft Classic Season of Discovery contains plenty of new abilities, like the Overload ability that is unlocked by finding and activating the first Icon of Power

Players who start the Season of Discovery as a Horde Shaman Troll will load into The Barrens Valley of Trials. The first quest is located in the Den, and to the left of the Den is Shikrik, the Shaman Trainer. Be sure to hit Shikrik first before attempting to unlock any other quests as the Shaman Trainer gives you the Icons of Power quest, requiring you to slay Scorpids in the Valley of Trials to find a stolen Icon.

Upon receiving the Icon of Power quests from Shikrik, venture north of the Den into the Valley of Trials. Here, you will find plenty of Scorpids to eliminate while completing other quests that assist in leveling up your Shaman WoW Classic character. Terminating Scorpids will randomly drop a Dyadic Icon

The Dyadic Icon is a Relic, of which Season of Discovery contains 12 Runes for the Shaman class

Players will need to equip the Dyadic Icon to their Shaman character while also placing the Icon on the Action Bar. Upon fighting creatures like Scorpids, your character will take Nature damage

While battling a Scorpid, use the Dyadic Icon. Upon activating, the Icon will disappear from the Action Bar. Once this happens, return to Shikrik to turn in the quest as long as you are at least level three.

Return to the Den and Shikrik’s location and turn in the Icons of Power quest. Doing so rewards you with the Overload Rune.

Shaman players within Season of Discovery will also gain a Cracked Leather Vest as a reward, which provides 33 armor and has a durability of 45/45.
