Diablo III – Meet the Monk

on August 27, 2009 6:26 PM

During the last week Blizzard officially named their newest character class for their upcoming monster, Diablo III. Enter the Monk! A character that is based on speed, melee and holy attacks, pretty much the exact opposite of a heavy tank or barbarian. The monk looks to bring the ability to combo enemies and be able to stick and move. Just watching this video makes me want to go re-install Diablo II or even Diablo I. The monk class looks the most interesting to me and probably the most challenging, which class are you looking at rolling when the game drops? And don’t act like you won’t get this game, Diablo III and StarCraft II already have your money, you just don’t know it yet. I have a soft spot in my heart for both games as they were the two first real hardcore PC games that I played on my own gaming PC and really introduced me to the giant that is Blizzard.

Check out the video and let me know what you think.
