Diablo 3 Beta - That Funky Monk-y

So I get the chance to take to the 4th class in Diablo 3 the Monk and I was pleasantly surprised by how fun it was!  First off you get to kick, punch, and crazily attack like a paladin without a sword.  Second off it uses a system similar to the Barbarian in which you gain a spirit metre with certain attacks, while using it with others.  The spirit gaining attacks were fluid and had a special animation for every third hit with special effects.  From snaring, to dizzying there were tons of effects.  The Monk also had options to run dodge and other auras which I didn't use to great effect but I could see how they might be pretty strong later and especially when running a team, not to mention nice utility like a aoe heal!

So that's all great and dandy, but how cool does he look?  Well let me show you.

You want Fist?  Oh we got fist... dipped in lightning

How bout kick?  Yeah eat some of these.

Oh, not enough fist?  Sorry lets let the aoe fly.

And the thing that made the Monk a sweet super fast crazy karate master and my favorite thing that made me love the class was the fact he got a crazy blink charge move.  Flys through enemies and allows him to zing around the map like a crazy bald mad man.  this my friends is the Barbarian equivilent to leap, u need this!

All in all really cool melee class, going to be hard to choose a main with all these great designs.  Demon Hunter up next, and then a recap!
