I was talking to my best friend who signed on Diablo 2. Supposedly they've been working on this patch for a year.

There's one quest in the game that once you complete, similar to the other quests that give you an item, you can talk to the character and you will receive all your skill points(not sure about attributes) back and your skills will go back to 0. You can then put the points in any way you want.

This means that those of us who want to make the ultimate character but want to build a character to make it atleast easier to go through initially can do that and still change to the ultimate build after. Since it's based on a quest, you can do it once per difficulty.
