Diablo III – Monk Spotlight Trailer

Posted on April 18, 2012 AT 07:00am

THE BUZZ: Blizzard has released a new trailer for Diablo III, taking an in depth look at the Monk class.

Here’s Blizzard’s official description:

“Monks are sacred warriors who channel divine power through sheer force of will. Healing waves, mantras of protection and attacks empowered with holy might are all within their purview. Skilled monks deliver rapid-fire attacks unarmed or with a variety of well-balanced weapons. In combat, they emphasize high maneuverability over staying power, darting in and out of melees and avoiding protracted slugfests. Monks’ attacks are primarily melee-focused. They can eliminate single foes with extreme damage, or deliver short-range area-of-effect assaults with waves of elemental power that emanate from palm strikes or crescent kicks.”

Yesterday Blizzard released a new developer diary which takes a closer look at the alpha testing stage of Diablo III.

EGM’s TAKE: If you plan on getting up close and personal with enemies, but want some survivability, then the Monk class is for you. Its rapid strikes allow you to finish off enemies quickly while buffs and healing spells will ensure that you can stay in the fight during those massive boss battles.

Which class will you pick and why? Let us know in the comments below.

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
