Short Diablo 3 Update

On February  18, Jay Wilson, Blizzard’s Game Director for Diablo 3, posted an article in the official Diablo 3 website discussing changes to the character skills and skill runes.Of particular note, skill runes are no longer dropped items; instead, they are built-in to the skill system and will unlock at pre-appointed levels. Each skill has five available runes and they give different effects to the skill (just like before). The skills themselves have hardly changed but there are has been some rearranging of when certain skills are unlocked, as well as how the skills are grouped together.
