+ skills anyone?

Is there any skill modifiers in Diablo 3? If so what would be an example?

They will likely be something like

+5% weapon damage to plague of toads (witch doctor only)

Frost nova duration increased by 15% (wizard only)

But this is just a guess of course. This way they can keep the damage and mechanics of the skill the same, but make them better without overpowering things. I'm sure you'll be able to get more than one skill affix per item as well.

Once again though, all just speculation :)

Yeah, itemization details are cards they're holding as closely as plot details. And I don't blame them.

There was a confirmation on this subject a couple weeks ago. Use the search feature to find.

There is data on skill affixes in the beta since patch 13 i think. How many affixes and what variants of them there will be in the final game is still not known.

Before they changed the way runes work they all had ranks and a fairly easy to discern math formula for higher ranks. That said, I expect that the + skills will "level up" the runestone effects following their old formula's

A blue did comment on this weeks ago, I cannot recall if it was on here or Twitter though.

They are in the game. (see second link if you want examples of + skills modifiers)

So there really is + modifiers.. It increases say dmg done or +to missile split?...

Example- + magic missile 1-3
+3= 3 more missiles?

Not much "confirmed" yet, there is the idea that the assets from the old itemized Rune system have in part made their way into affix's, so, possible changes like you just described may be in the game, we don't know for sure yet.

Well I hope so I was really looking forward to seeing signature abilities being drastically altered by rune level increases.
