Diablo 3 Gold player of Diablo 3. Hope you will like it.I see the skills with runes as adding even more customization. Just pretend that each rune is a talent on a talent tree. Two characters of the same class can easily have completely different skill sets and play nothing alike. And even if you are using the same skill, runes allow you to use it multiple ways. Throw in passive skills and the possible number builds is massive.As for people copying set ups off each other...well I didn't play the old Diablo games all that much, but I recall most classes having favorite cookie cutter specs.
