I have heard there are equipment attributes that will modify specific skills, such as "decrease cool down on wall of zombies by 2 seconds".

I'm really looking forward to these, as it may open up some new build strategies.

At what point might I start seeing items like this drop?

Though these items are fairly rare, I began seeing them drop around the end of Nightmare, and with increasing frequency through Hell and Inferno (though I can't say I've seen any that were any good yet). Expect rare items with good skill modifiers to be extremely expensive as a result - you have to be pretty lucky to get a good skill modifier in the first place, and a lot of the ones I've seen have been on otherwise trash uncommons.

The lowest level item I've seen these effects on is level 37, but they just dropped for me in Act III of Nightmare. – Beofett May 22 '12 at 19:32
