How do you get disciplines?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, brand new to the game, been trying to find out how to get disciplines to put in the slots I unlocked and I can't figure it out, are they crafted? And if so what category are they under?

New this update they are crafted. The recipes are in Runecrafting profession that can be found on a Runecrafting table in a cottage in a Keep or Fort.

Disciplines are very much in flux right now. There are different ways to obtain them depending on the type of discipline.

There are vendors in the back of the market in the temple that sell some of the exploration disciplines, as well as crafting majors and a handful of minors. 

Minor disciplines also drop from war tribes, but in God's Reach, I don't think you'll find anything other than the green quality discs, which are the same ones they sell on the vendor. You'll need to wait until the campaign comes up and kill higher ranked war tribes to get the other minor discs. Minors will drop off the elites, which are pretty easy to solo, but you'll have better odds of getting minors from the boss mobs, particularly the group and raid boss mobs.

The other exploration discs, the ones not sold on the vendor (Villein, Lookout, Connoisseur, etc.), can be obtained via harvesting. To do this you need to have an advanced runetool that has been imbued with a polished soulgem (soulgems come from harvesting ore, but you have to have the training for it in Exploration Basics, and they can be polished at a jewelcrafting station). The only way to imbue a runetool with a soulgem is to have the Runemaking Techniques minor discipline equipped. If you have the disc equipped, you will see a slot for the soulgem in the Harvesting Runetool recipe (at the Runemaking Station). Once you have the runetool, you need to harvest rank 6 or higher nodes to get soul essences and the exploration souls (soul of the villein, soul of the lookout, etc.). God's Reach doesn't have any nodes above rank 5, so again, you'll need to wait until the campaign comes up.

Major disciplines work in a similar fashion, except they haven't been fully implemented yet. In 5.8.6, the majors dropped off the nighttime versions of the mobs, but they changed it so that instead of every mob in the world changing to the nighttime version every night, now they only change to that version when they are within 50 meters of a hunger crystal. In other words, there are far less nighttime mobs. The drops were only a stop gap until the intended content is complete.

Like the exploration discs, you will need soul essences from harvesting, but to get the Soul of Combat (Soul of the Blade Master, Soul of the Elementalist, etc.) you will need to capture a thrall. Thralls are not in game yet. You will need soulgems to capture thralls, so if you haven't trained soulgems yet, it might be a good idea to do so now.

So yeah, it's all pretty involved. In time, as more and more people collect these things, you should start seeing them for sale on player run vendors (players can place vendors in their faction temple, in the free city and in EKs). It's a good idea to hook up with a guild so that you have other people with which you can divide the labor, rather than trying to do everything yourself.
