- Rank 4 Crimson Energy armor = 120% resistance buff
- Rank 7 Crimson Energy armor = 180% resistance buff
I assume that the benefit of the skill rune scales with our level since they removed the ranks, right?
Anyone in beta test this yet?

"The new skill rune system does not have ranks, and we’ve instead made each around the equivalent to what the rank 4 or 5 rune was previously."
This from Jay Wilson skills and rune change article.
02/22/2012 07:20 PMPosted by CollateralNo, they've removed a significant aspect of player progression with the change.
For some reason I thought they were going to add item mods to boost rune effects. Like "+1 crimson rune effect." <--- that obviously sucks as an item mod definition, but you get what im saying?
I don't know where I got this from, but I thought I read it somewhere. Maybe someone else said it? I'm sure its been talked about. I think it would be cool. Like + to skills in d2 kinda. idk.
It was mentioned in the reddit post that was posted a couple days before the patch came out. Although, if I recall it wasn't mentioned as a sure thing, rather a possibility. So here's hoping.
From what I can tell without beta access, they did not actually use the 'Rank 4-5' of each rune in the old system, but seem to have chosen values all over the map.I keep being negative about it on the forums, but I can't help but suspect that maybe, just maybe, the rune effects they put in to the beta 13 patch weren't final, and that they might normalize them all to 4-5 for release.
Not sure why he phrased it that way.
