As much as I love melee classes, the monk is IMO just disappointing and after watching the spotlight video it just got worse.
I honestly espected more umph now that we are so close to release date and less light effects, but the problems I have with the before-mentioned things would have been nothing, if blizzard desinged him to be interesting, which they really failed in doing. The skills are really really boring and the only interesting and fun skill he has is imo dashing strike.
Also what really bothers me(something I thought they would fix), is that this guy according to the video, is supposed to be a "master" of swords and other types of weapons, yet when he uses them, they are sheathed while he is hitting with his fists, but after he stops hitting they are up in his hand. How can he be a master of swords when he isnīt even using them in combat?
Summa summarum, although the monks are a part of the diablo universe(hellfire expansion),the class does indeed feel rushed and forced into diablo as if they wanted him to be there, maybe because blizzard are introducing their new class for wow, which is also a monk? I donīt know.
What do you guys think is the monk fun IYO or do you also feel itīs rushed and boring compared to the other classes?
