This skill was first revealed at Blizzcon 2010 as Molten Arrow[1], before it got a name change along with an expanded function via the different rune effects.

"Elemental Arrow" was first seen at the July 2011 Press Event, where it was a level 18 skill.


After the beta started in September 2011, Elemental Arrow became a level 9 skill. The skill system was once again overhauled for the Beta Patch 13, and Elemental Arrow was classified as a Secondary skill and moved up to level 20.
