Quote from ZlurkI am curious as well. What's the topic of discussion? o.O is it that you can't place your skills wherever you want as easily?
You can. Elective Mode. Though I won't lie, the UI for elective mode is pretty poorly done.
It's probably because everyone had convinced themselves runes were going to operate a certain way, while Blizzard was saying "not done yet", and now everyone is mad it didn't happen the way they wanted.
Personally, I think the rune system is good. I'd rather get runes through natural progression rather than random drops. There's enough randomness as it is.
