    "Wizard Arcane abilities no longer strip runes from other schools."


    Do you think this could mean the focus charges and it means you can stay maxed in Fire, Cold, Other while weaving in some Arcane mana regen?

    I wonder if the familiars have been changed at all due to this too if true.

    This would be a pretty big 'Bean' if they changed the mechanic so you didn't loose your charges from other schools. And it would make the currently listed "summon fire familiar" pointless. Since I can't recall hearing "runes" ever mentioned in regard to the Charges of your Focus, I'm thinking it means something else. But I could be wrong.


    It would be nice to get this clarified.

    They also noted another big change to wizard which they said they would discuss later.  I can't wait to see what has changed.  I hope they did remove the arcane spells from removing the focus from other schools.  I think it will be a tremendous boost to the wizard.

    I am really excited about juggling different schools of magic. I'd like it to be more than "cast fire blast on cooldown even if you're casting ice magic," and this sound like it would be.
