Fundamentals is a Demon Hunter passive skill unlocked at Level 17, which increases the damage of the Demon Hunter's basic attack and gives hatred for every successful basic attack.

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. Fundamentals was not seen until it showed up in the Diablo III beta as a level 17 passive.
In Beta Patch 13, Fundamentals was removed from the game.
