More skills and upgrades than ever

Skill trees in Diablo 4 are literal trees. Players are given two skill points per level to invest in the tree. As the player selects skills and upgrades in the tree's branches, they'll unlock passive points, which can be used on passive bonuses in the tree's root system. Some skills can become even more powerful if primary stat thresholds are met (e.g., if the player's Strength exceeds 250).
