Warrior players of all races are hunting for the Wandering Swordsman across Azeroth for the Blood Frenzy Rune. In this guide, we’ll touch on where to find the Wandering Swordsman in WoW Classic: Season of Discovery.

How to Find and Beat the Wandering Swordsman in WoW Classic: SoD

The Wandering Swordsman in Season of Discovery does just what his name implies: he wanders the area. This is a big problem for Warriors trying to get Blood Frenzy because there’s only one Wandering Swordsman at a time. To make matters worse, once he’s slain, he seems to spawn in a random location in the same zone.

While I’d love to give exact coordinates as to where to find the Wandering Swordsman in Classic: SoD, we’ll have to settle for some partial info for the time being. I haven’t heard of anyone finding him in Tirisfal Glades while puttering around over there, so for the time being, I have to assume he doesn’t spawn there. Though that’s yet to be confirmed.

How to Beat the Wandering Swordsman in WoW Classic: Season of Discovery

The Wandering Swordsman is a Level 7 elite NPC, who can be found wandering the lands to challenge fellow Warriors. Once you meet him, you’ll have to talk to him to initiate a duel. Being that he’s a level seven elite, you probably won’t want to try to fight him at level four or five unless you have a party to help. He doesn’t do anything crazy, and you’ll have to get the Rune of Blood Frenzy from the box he drops upon defeat.
