    Monks - new animations for weapons for release and more in patches

    So..few minutes ago..there was a blue post which I found interesting. I am one of these players, who just didn't want play monk because of lack of weapons animations. It seems they are still working on monk. They are adding weapon animations for few skills and we will get more improvements post-release in patches. They may even allow use more weapons for monk... I was really glad to read that. Maybe I will play my Battle-staff monk after all

    Look like they changed their mind about monk animation at last minute but it's too late to delay the game for something as small as this so it will be in patch. Personally, I don't really care about weapon animation for monk because I think he is supposed to use his fists and feet anyway.

    I wouldn't want to see the monk using stuff like axes when using a particular attack, but I definitely think that staff attacks needed some love.

    To me, staff and fist weapons are the two things that should get animations :p. Although that said, the animation when he uses swords with dashing strike is pretty sweet :p.

    I just hope that for something like Deadly Reach, they keep the 'core' animation that looks like bending from Avatar, but have him holding the weapon, instead of it disappearing. I just find that regular animation so badass :p.

    I'm glad they finally fixed this absurdity.

    Nifty. I would have settled for simply making the monk holster his weapons by default, but this is a nice gesture.

    I have no interest in the Monk but this really did feel stupid when I played him in the beta, it just felt so unfinished and slapdash.
