Q u o t e: ok so in my opinion, i think blizzard "borrowed" some ideas from various d2 mods.
example - the skill runes from the very popular d2 mod "Kingdom of Tenai".
-> these were invented in this mod. you could socket your weapons, etc. with runes of skill, thus
recieving that skill.
i know theres a few other too....
post any "borrowed" ideas you know of?
* i have never played any mods. only seen videos on youtube.
mostly everything blizzard ever put into any game was "barrowed"
they are good at putting good ideas together, i dont think they should be looked dwn upon in using known, well working mechanics. otherwise they would release buggy ass games that take stabs in the dark as to what is functional and what is not.
