    Re: So do you think the monk is a fun class?

    Yes monk is fun to play, at least in the beta.

    If you love playing a class that kicks, punches and uses martial arts, then monk is for you.

    I like barbarian the least, just personal preference.

    Re: So do you think the monk is a fun class?

    i hated the monk before playing one. the first time i used the monk i was so happy to see he was fun to use that i started thinking he would be my first character. this has since changed as i will go barb first (for now anyway) but that does not mean i do not still enjoy the monk. way more fun than i thought he would be. its my opinion that if people found the paladin or barb(d2) fun at all then they should like the monk also. way more interesting than anything melee had to offer in d2

    Re: So do you think the monk is a fun class?

    I wouldn't judge the class based on this video. There are so many things we can't get a feel for by looking at demonstrations like this. Skill responsiveness, precise range and power. Then there are all the rune options. For example, before patch 16 I didn't like to play with the Monk at all. Now, with the introduction of the Thunderclap rune of Fists of Lightning that changed however. That one rune changed the feel of the whole class for me, so I retired my Barb and started to gear up my Monk as my gold finder character. These videos don't tell us anything really important about the classes.

    Re: So do you think the monk is a fun class?

    I think I'm one of the few people who LIKES the fact that the Monk's weapons disappear and he uses his fists when he attacks.

    It's the same reason why I liked playing a Werewolf Druid in D2 - it's all about fulfilling a particular fantasy. I wouldn't feel like I'm playing a Werewolf if he used his equipped axe to attack and wore full plate over his fur. Same with the Monk - I'd rather attack with my fists even when I use swords for the stats.

    I would have gone even further and made him sheath his weapons, unless he uses fist weapons of course.

    Re: So do you think the monk is a fun class?

    I`d love it if blizz do something with his weapons, thats one of the things i find disapointing.. Either dont run arround with them in hands and then atack with fists, or use them if u run with them in ur hands..
    Other than that, this video is plain OLD.. Far from whats the current monk, but yeah, he is kind a little brother to the barb.
    After all that, I still love it, and i think thats my choise for a starter.

    Re: So do you think the monk is a fun class?

    I hated the monk until patch 16. Then, I figured out that a monk plays very much like a frenzy barb with the right weapons and a quick spirit generator (NOT deadly reach). The heals are great, and I think the monk will be very difficult to kill so he might actually be my first character that I try in later difficulties.

    Re: So do you think the monk is a fun class?

    Without giving a long explanation, I like the monk just as much as I like all the other classes (and I've played through the beta ridiculous amounts of times).

    Monk is actually really fun in beta. I don't really care about poorly made video.

    Re: So do you think the monk is a fun class?

    I just did a naked run with the monk (only starting weapon , no Breath of Heaven) and it was a ton of fun. I failed a few times at the SK but then i got that mofo because i've learned how to use the monk's skills effectively and i felt that it was due to my own skill that i could kill him eventually. I did naked runs with other characters too and it was all just kiting with all the ranged classes and waiting for Ground Stomp cooldown with the barb. But as monk i had no cooldowns to wait for and could not kite every mob so i was forced to make good decisions and really learn to use my skills wisely.

    If that is any indication of this class' playstyle, i'm gonna be all over it.

    But now i cant decide if i should roll a barb or a monk first.
