    Question about runes...

    Sorry of this has been covered... (new here!)

    So I was reading up on D3's runes earlier and was quite impressed... but do the runes have any drawbacks? Maybe high mana cost or recharge? Or will they put a limit as to how many runes can be socketed on your character at any given time?

    They seem so powerful that any skill can be made into the central offensive skill of a build... imagine having all your active skills runed! What will that do to gameplay?

    The gameplay will be made around the existence of Runes.

    In other words, you better have your runes set or else you'll never survive once outside the caravan :)

    You have an interesting view of character power curves.

    Well, not right from the start of course but as the game progresses, I think Blizzard expects you to find at least, upto rune X, so it calculates such in with the mobs or it'll be too hard or easy.

    Since this game is about fighting packs of monsters, that calculation is not as hard as you might think. Even if you can kill 1 monster at a time, you are still viable.

    I think we'll both agree on that a rune for sure adds an extra variable :)
