Backup Plan


From Diablo Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Backup Plan is a rune effect in Preparation, a Discipline-spending Demon Hunter skill.

This rune effect does not change the base function at all; the only modification is a 30% chance that the cooldown will not be triggered. This could be a fun rune effect for a player who liked to gamble, but in most high level builds, players like to know exactly what their skills will and will not do, so they can plan ahead. Using this one, which would usually do nothing, but 30% of the time gift you with a free Discipline refill, would be hard to integrate.
