Carved Stakes

Carved Stakes is a rune effect in Caltrops, a Discipline-spending Demon Hunter skill.

This rune effect reduces the Discipline cost from 6 to 4 for each use of the skill. As the cost is fairly modest to begin with, a player would need to be fantastically fond of using this skill, to excess, to find a lot of value in this rune effect.
