Skill Design[edit]



The following Demon Hunter passives provide a benefit to Preparation, runed or not: None.


Preperation was first seen at the July 2011 Press Event, where it was a level 25 skill. Unfortunately, no information about the skill's function was available.


When the beta started in September 2011, Preperation remained at level 25. The skill system was once again overhauled for the Beta Patch 13, and Preparation was classified as a Shadow skill and moved to level 19. For Beta Patch 14, it was re-classified as a Hunting skill and dropped to level 13. Also, the "Hunting" category replaced "Shadow".
