Well, the calculator is out.. yay. We get to see some cool stuff on classes, all the skills so far, and what the different runes do for them, and they are finally official... But, wait... There seems to be something kind of funny with it..

After going through all the classes, because of my own curiosity and personal nature, I decided to do a little bit of looking through the skills... This is what I came up with, a very basic layout of all the classes, lvl 1-30 and what levels they obtain their skills. I didn't actually put the names of their skills, just a number representing the class of skill earned.

Basically, I'm kinda confused as to why all the classes get their abilities at such different lvls. And the advantage of having 1-4 more active skills than another class, with runes present, ends up being 5-20 more skill options available to a class that another will not have.

My biggest question, is if blizzard is still working on some skills that just have not been announced or been released yet, or if this will end up being the very case I'm asking about... Just also wanted to see some other people's thoughts and such on the topic. Maybe i'm just being a little too over analytic.
