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.


Galvanizing Ward was not seen until it showed up in the Diablo III beta as a level 23 passive. For Beta Patch 13, it became a level 24 skill, and when passives were reorganized for Beta Patch 14, Galvanizing Ward was moved up to level 40 and nerfed heavily: Life gain dropped from 889.68 to 310.097 per second.
