No synergies with any active skills or other Wizard passives are known.


Passive skills have had a long and storied history. When Diablo III debuted at the WWI 2008, skill trees included passive skills, much like in Diablo II. In 2010, it was announced that passive skills had been renamed traits and separated out from active skills. At the July 2011 Press Event, Blizzard announced that passive skills were once again in the game, replacing the traits system.


Critical Mass was not seen until it showed up in the Diablo III beta as a level 12 passive. When passives were reorganized for Beta Patch 14, Critical Mass was moved up to level 50.
