With every individual rune having its own 10-sec refresh time, 4 Frost runes would allow 1Frost abilities to be nearly spammed at 1 per 2.5 secs. Clearly that's nuts.However if they only allowed one rune of each type to be regenerating at a time, no runeblade setup would be OP. Once all your runes were used you'd be getting the same refresh rate of one of each type per 10 secs. It'd be like having three different energy bars whose lengths you can control. Length of a bar = the amount of burst potential in that school.The BBFFUU scheme they've arrived at regens *2* of each type per 10 secs, so that's what they're trying to balance around now. But if they find that DKs are still inherently OP(as reports from the beta are suggesting), I hope they consider shifting to the only one rune per type regenning at a time model. That would allow them to go back to allowing players to configure rune balance, which was a kind of playstyle customization I thought had a lot of potential.
