    1) Is a monk.
    2) Has a beard.
    3) Has a chain of beads around his neck.
    4) Uses moves (如来神掌, Buddha's Palm in English) that has even more SFX than the Monk in Diablo 3.

    The only thing he is missing is the dots on the head, and he's also chubbier.

    Re: Monk's Beard

    Seriously worried about the monk's beard?

    Its a sign of his age and thus wisdom, experience, maybe part of his lore/culture, and finally it looks COOL!

    Sounds crazy to me, but still better than some other irrational concerns from fans, in my opinion ...

    Please implement a "beard toggle".
    I hope they make it so you can slightly customize all your characters, like you can make the barbarian slightly taller or shorter, you can change his hair style/color I hope they make the characters all slightly different in small ways, that way we don't all feel like a regular Monk or WD.

    I want his beard declared a wildlife sanctuary, there could be an endangered species living in there.

    This kinda makes me suspect the monk might be able to turn into some godly Buddha avatar thingy as one of his/her high level skills

    No man his beard is actually a grizzly bear family living on his chin in a symbiotic relationship.

    I like the beard look, gives a bit of uniqueness to a class that is always the same in every other RPG.

    Now all I want is an option make the beard longer, and attach a whip dagger to it and use it as a spinning and entangling weapon.

    *Trips fallen with beard*
    *EXPLODING PLAM!!*

    I think the beard comes from the Eastern Orthodox influence on the character. The Russian Patriarch has a giant beard, as does pretty much every Russian Orthodox monk.

    Now, if they could just chose another name besides Ivgorod or at least pronounce using proper Slavic phonetics (Eev-gah-ruhd), rather than bastardize the entire Slavic family of languages.

    The beard is an ok feature but it would be a bit better IMO to have it a bit "cleaner", something like this
