    Monk Viable in Arena/PvP?

    i love to play pvp and i will focus on it at d3.

    i played the beta yesterday at a friend and totally fell in love with the monk.

    i like his movement so much. and love his gapsclosers.

    these skills look greaT for doing arena, am i right?

    what are u thinking?
    will he lack in damage or survibility?

    greetings

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1MNiM3Wfz4 here a video about the monk in the arena. his mobility is nice! great to chase or also to escape. but if i see the damage numbers of other chars (barb!, wizard) he is really lacking in damage. what do u think?

    No, I'm pretty sure Blizzard want one class to be significantly less powerful in the arena, and I think that that class is going to be Monk.

    I'm sorry dude.

    I think monk will be the best pvp class in all honesty. Massing up dodge will be of great use, remember, dodge enables you to dodge the whole attack, be it anything (even elemental attacks etc can be dodged.) Also dashing strike is very low spirit cost ability that a) enables you to get into melee range b) snares the target for 1 seconds to not get away c) has no cooldown so you can snare him as many times as your spirit allows. Serenity and Inner Sanctuary skills should be very valuable in pvp as well I think.

    hi reflexii,
    thx for the first good answer :)

    yes it look really great on paper.
    i am only a little worried about the damage what u can see in the vid from the monk and from the other classes.

    but to i also think it must be for the balance.

    it was always the same: the more damage, the less cc

    The monk has the tools to be a beast in pvp if a few simple changes are done. I have outlined my thoughts on how to improve the combo system, and improve/change the purpose of the dash. If you want speed you will probably like my suggestions.

    chimera nice thread ! i read it but i dont understand what u mean by the dash cancel (probably because that english isnt my mother tongue :p

    the dash is such a short attack, i see no reason for what the cancel should be.

    Re: Monk Viable in Arena/PvP?

    whats the point of ur question, nobody has played arena besides the blizzcons which pvp is probly gunna be a little different from then especially balance wise. nobody knows the current state of internal pvp or arenas, therefore we do not know if the monk will or will not be viable based on words. seriously, whats ur point?..... but im sure all 5 classes will be "Viable" for Arena/PvP. just like they have a ton of viable builds i dont think they would make 1 class not viable. the first reply u got wasn't bad at all actually saying what i am. but he didnt bother to explain to you how idiotic ur post sounds =/ nobody knows!!!! nobody knows!!!! thats ur answer. or u can believe me when my instinct tells me all 5 classes will be viable... all classes are damage oriented with their own survivability, different abilities for different situations. its pvp playa. what dont u get? they'll be fine.

    As the only class with direct healing skills, I bet you can make it work.

    Re: Monk Viable in Arena/PvP?

    Currently, Monk is the most Powerful class in PVP.(Blizzard interns tested this...)
    Its a no brainers imo,
    They got absurd number of battle control skills, survival skills, aura and even a debuff...

    Monk is the Reason Blizzard Delay PVP on Diablo 3,
    Even the Bashiok says that Monk is too overpowered in PVP.
    Now they are trying to find a way to balance Monk so that other class can even compete with Monk.


    This is what Bash says
    Viable class for PVP?
    Oh hell they are more viable than anything else.

    The Monk has good single-target DPS, great mobility and a bunch of nice buffs and debuffs. I bet Monk would be the best choice for PVP in all honesty.
