Preview your abilities early with the Diablo III Skill Calculator

Wednesday, 14th September 2011 01:50 GMT By Matt Williams

Blizzard have released a Skill Calculator allowing gamers to preview and refine their ability set for Diablo III.

Accessible on, the Skill Calculator allows users to select their class type and experiment by applying different skills.

Players first choose the active skills they wish to use, to a maximum of six, followed by passive skills, to a maximum of three. The skills selected will automatically calculate the required level necessary to play with the chosen skill set.

Players can link to their build through Facebook or Twitter.

Thanks, Shacknews.

    Damn this skill tree looks pretty awesome.

    I’m going to be all over this game.

    Edit: Phew, almost lost it there. Ok. In all seriousness, this is a fiendishly seductive way to promote your game: Release the entire skill tree and let the freaks tweak their builds before the game is even released.

    You get to play before you play. Like, for real.

    … Genius.

    You almost lost it? I lost it, I passed out actually, I don’t know how to make them work right now I need to play out and see how it’ll come to play with different builds and what would work if I put some point in one stat than th other. I’m so very excited, as excited as when CM Punk and Triple H faced off in this weeks Monday Night Raw, as excited as when Blizzard introduced the Death Knight class which is my favorite class, as excited as the first time I saw MGS4′s footage and as excited as when Real Madrid won their last Champions League cup in 2002. I WANT DIABLO III SO BAD.. oops, nose bleed, got too excited it seems.
