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.


Pierce the Veil was not seen until it showed up in the Diablo III beta as a level 20 passive. When passives were reorganized for Beta Patch 14, Pierce the Veil was moved up to level 27.
