Diablo 3 Altar of Rites - Seal Costs

Best Diablo 3 Altar of Rites Unlock Path Each Skill and tips
Each skill has a cost and can only be unlocked after the preceding one, so store up as many of the resources needed as you can to unlock them quickly. (Picture: Blizzard)

The Seals are connected to another one, meaning that you need to unlock the previous seal to access the next one along the skill tree. They also each come at their own cost, so before diving into the best unlock order, be sure to check out the prices of each Seal so you can keep track of what resources you need to unlock the next one.
