    i levelled a monk with dave and yeah he was like 'the fuck is that skill'

    it eats spirit like whoa

    I found that all of his skills pretty much heat Spirit like whoa. The bell, from which I am under the impression is like his elite skill given to him real early, feels useless when you get it. You don't have the spirit generation to use it often, and it doesn't feel strong enough for the amount of spirit it does take. I was left with the feeling of "Why would I use anything other than my combo move and dragon kick thing?" when playing the Monk. His blinding skill is good mechanically, but the effect leaves more to be desired.

    At least in the Beta, the Monk feels pretty bland to me. Deadly Reach and Crippling Wave feel so similar. Fists of Thunder, while feeling different, gives the same effect as Deadly Reach and Crippling Wave in terms of killing power/area. Then you choose between the kick and bell for finishing moves and because of there terrible spirit generation you choose kick. Once you get Dashing Strike you are all "Fuck yea, now I can move all over the screen fast!" then you realize you must have a target for it to work, and then you are all just :? .

    Stylisticly I love the Monk. His character, aura and all that is really appealing to me. I mean, he has a really sweet beard and sounds eastern European. But in the beta he just feels weak compared to the Barbarian, Wizard and Witch Doctor. And so I will be a big burly Barbarian for my first playthrough.

    Yeah, I was a barb first for d2, and warrior mained in d1 (though in d1 in had a warrior with maxed spells, so)

    At this point I'm not sure if my internal invites for d3 will work.
    I have no idea if they're using it or just randomly inviting folks.

    I submitted you, but beyond that idk dude.

    New monk is fun, the skill that makes you run around spinning a stick is the best

    have you gotten the big bell yet?

    no what level is the big bell

    I like to kill the king on each class before taking any to the level cap, so my monk is still only level 9

    What are the chances of a huge invite wave near release to stress and test the systems like they did with SC2?
    Damn it I wanna try this game before commiting

  • No Great NameNo Great Name FRAUD DETECTED Registered User regular
    There will be a trial such as sc2 has.

    Will most likely just be the beta content.

    You get Wave of Light at level 12. It's not really worth the resources so early in the game, I think.

    So, i'm getting an iphone in like a week
    and legend of grimrock comes out in like 3 days
    i'm hoping that'll sate my desire for mass demon evisceration a while longer

    Wave of Light seems completely unnecessary for a Monk when you get it but I can imagine it being super useful

    yeah I don't think the beta is really long enough to make you really need much of your skill set

    pretty sure a lot of the skills I don't bother taking now will become critical in higher difficulty areas

    Diablo 3 really doesn't seem like the kind of game to give a shit about min/maxing your dps. WoW, sure, but D3?

    Depends. I mean, since hellmeph runs in D2 were king it didn't matter much. Teleport spam and then meteor drop.

    But maxing your damage output would be really nice if they do heroic modes like they say they will.

    That's true. I just hope if it does become important we'll get a Diablo 3 elitistjerks so I don't have to figure out all that shit out myself.

    I wanted to say thanks again for whatever sway you had in throwing me a beta invite. I've been playing the diablo series (and blizzard games) for more than half my not entirely short life.. I love your company, dude.

    monk is amazing now

    the level 6 rune for the basic lightning punch attack is a teleport + dark lightning nova thing

    this is what playing a monk feels like in patch 16
