    Confused about runes

    Are runes supposed to stack over skill or replace that skill ?

    Shock Pulse: Release a medium range pulse of 3 unpredictable charges of electricity that deal 105% weapon damage as Lightning.

    With Fire Bolts: Cast bolts of fire that each deal 136% weapon damage as Fire. ( replace? )
    With Explosive Bolts: Slain enemies explode, dealing 70% weapon damage as Lightning to every enemy within 10 yards. ( stack? )

    Its a bit confusing.

    The rune values don't stack on top of the existing skill. They simply modify the original skill to have the properties listed.

    Yes and yes. it changes based on rune/skill, there's no single rule that defines them all.

    Some just add +%damage to the base skill, others completely change how the base skill works, others change the damage type, others make it cheaper to cast. Every rune is different.
