Skill Bonanza!

Did you feel too limited in Diablo and Diablo II with your skill choices? As promised so long ago when Diablo III was first announced, runes will be adding a ton of customizability to your Diablo III skill armory. When the announcement first came, though, who would have thought that, base skills and rune combinations combined, we would be fighting the hordes of Hell with over seven hundred skills?

Official Blizzard Quote:

Amount of skills in Diablo III, with all player runestone variants included, is currently topping 700.

Official Blizzard Quote:

It's staggering really, even to me still. Those are all unique in their visuals too, which is important to note. Sure some of them may be simple color shifts but most of them are unique mechanics with completely unique visual effects. It's crazy. Big up to our effects guys.

The flip side, of course, is that not every skill can possibly be interesting or useful enough to bother exploring every possible rune combination. Or will they? Perhaps Blizzcon 2010 will give us more to chew on as we near the as-of-yet unknown release date of Diablo III!
