Yeah, every rune changes the spell visually as well as the effect. I'm not sure if every rune rank changes it visually too, though.

The visuals won't change (dramatically, if at all) with rune ranks. Just the numbers of the effect.

I was pissed when diablo II came out that there weren't skill books anymore.

I'm now willing to give pretty much anything they put into d3 a fair shot, given how well that worked out despite my initial feelings.

what should happen is that there should be a rankin system still in place with the runes. the higher the rune the more dmg output or longer the effect lasts. certain runes should allow a unique skill to happen or you might be able to have some kind of skill from another class or something.

might be cool

Hmmm... I think you're confused on the Rune system in diablo 3...

Here, this should help:

266
Gems enhance items with sockets in them. You place gems in the sockets to give bonuses based on the gem.

Holllllyyyy crap that is a lot of different gem qualities. I wonder if the highest quality star gems will have some actual value and be semi-difficult to obtain. Perfect gems (or pgems) in DII were nearly worthless unless you had a character and stash full of them.

How did skill books work in DI? I barely played DI because of all the hacking in it. I remember jumping on B.Net and seeing like 40 duplicates of the same items on the ground. I should have just played single player or something but I never did, at least not that I can remember. I was only 11 in 96' when it came out. Maybe I'll install it on this MacBook and give it a shot, would be worth it just for the story.

So obviously you put gems in socketable items and it will give you x bonus to y stat, but what about runes? Since they change an ability do you still have to socket them in an item? Figured I would ask here instead of looking it up for myself to keep the conversation going.

Edit - I just realized there is a difference between runestones and runes. Are both in the game or just runestones?

Nononono. Ok so runes you socket into SKILLS. Item sockets are just for gems thumb.gif
