I'm honestly not interested in even trying it out anymore.
I'm confused... wasn't the plan before to have thousands of skill runes that could be bought with real money?
Having skill runes unlocked automatically is a GOOD IDEA.
The best loot from items will already be nearly impossible to achieve through normal gaming without RMAH (a lot of affixes combinations added with random number on each affixes ), don't you see item runes where only there to be traded and give more money to blizzard?
Ultimately everyone want the exact same level 7 rune, there was no point in those runes, except adding a layer of unecessary complexity and time-consuming farming.
