Passive Skill System

Posts: 45
I did a quick search and couldn't find what I'm looking for. I just wanted to know about the passive skill system. Is it like the skills where you can only have 6 out of 20ish, or do you get them all over time? Are they class specific?

Thanks for the help!

You get access to your first passive at level 10 and have the last of them unlock at level 30. You chose 3 at a time. Presumably you can change them on the fly just like any other skill. I don't think we know how many you will have to chose from in total, but it will be somewhere between 10 and 20. You will not be able to socket runes into passives.

What little is known is mostly here:

THAT is something that I don't remember being clarified but I believe so. Would be cool to get an official answer or somebody could throw out a link where they said somethin about it.

To clarify, you don't only get a new passive skill at 10, 20 and 30. Those are the levels at which passive skill SLOTS open. Starting at level 10, you learn new passives at a regular pace until 30. There are a LOT more passive skills than 3 per class. Just making sure that's clear, because my dumb !@# didn't realize that until like 2 days ago. :)

The wiki is correct but as of right know the devs said you can only chose 3 passive skills.

I wish they would go back to calling them traits instead of passive skills. Although there might be a lot of people who would see this and go "What the heck are traits? *click* Ohh, these are passive skills." so meh.
