    big news.. :p
    I dont really understand why people even spend their time posting these things.
    Its just time consuming. Im watching the entire blizzcon, it was hard to stay up till 5am when i woke up 6am the day before, but i made it!
    If there is any news on blizzcon, you can expect us to already know about it.

    But the most epic thing on blizzcon so far has to be WoW Cataclysm! Its so epic that i cant find any words... seriusly.. Its better then burning crusade and WotLK togheter.
    Entierly new leveling areas from 1-85, two new races, they will do some changes to a few classes, they will remake some skill trees a bit, they remove useless item stats thats just annoying and much more.
    And the most epic thing of all is when the guy mentioned the item stat things...
    "Stamina"
    "Its also gone..."
    "Naah, just kidding"
    xD I couldent stop laughing.

    But well, since this is the diablo 3 project... who cares, lol.
    We will make the Monk, dont get scared, yet.
    And i think that will be my personal favorite becouse of the spells, currently i think he will have the most epic spells for the map. The combo system, the charge ability to blink around enemies and kill them. The exploding effect in the combo, everything, its just.... EPIC.

    BTW,
    Did anyone else notice the new epic outfits the chars have in the select screen on the website? ^^
    The only thing that annoys me is the barbarians helmet and that he doesnt dual wield something, that would look better ;)

    You said it, dude.
    I just post that because most people can't watch Blizzcon.
    As for me, I watched the online streaming of the streaming (lol)
    There's a dude who streamed his desktop with the official expensive streaming of the Blizzcon running.

    Cataclysm is just ...wow. (xD)

    As a Blizzard lore fan, I'm just UBER-excited about this stuff.
    HOLY SHIT, DEATHWING IS BACK GIRLS!
    Can you even get the power of this stuff?

    Well, the thing is that, if you want to disuce diablo 3, your actually suppost to talk about it at the real d3 forums here on hive, this is just about the project.
    So its kinda the wrong place to post this, but w/e.
    Its fun that they choosed to take the monk back becouse he was in Diablo: Hellfire. And what makes that so fun is that many people did not know about the Diablo 1 Expansion pack ;)

    Some peoples reaction was "yey, a new class" but it is not a new class, he was in diablo 1! :p

    Yeah I heard it was leaked earlier, I'm happy to have not seen it before the official announcement.
    Anyway, I posted this here because :
    As it concerns Diablo 3 it concerns D3W, doesn't it? It's just to make sure that da concerned people know about this.
    I talk about him on other forums that Hiveworkshop, that's not the problem.

    The lore of Hellfire isn't canon to the Diablo universe, the monk from back then and the actual monk don't have the same roots, background and stuff.
    Hellfire was made by Sierra in the first place, Blizzard just agreed to it.

    NB : The brotherhood of the Bough (that's the Hellfire monks'), Na-Krul, and the insectoid aliens don't exist in the Real Blizzard Diablo.

    It's a new class, no doubt. As the monk from Hellfire had a very limited background and as he was from Diablo 1, had only one specific skill, which was "Search".
    The monk was my favorite class from D1+HF, this monk is a new class, he is a melting pot of Assassin, Paladin and various elements from Barbarian (I bet he has a "iron skin"-like skill) and other stuff.

    -----

    Okay! Now for the serious part.
    How is the monk gonna be introduced in D3W?
    I'm not gonna tell you what to do and stuff, I just want to expose some aspects and points of his gameplay.

    What makes the Monk truly unique is his "combo" fighting.
    He seems to work on a 1-2-3 basis.
    Each of his ATTACK spells (with some exceptions as "Seven Sided Strike") have 3 forms :
    1 - Da week form
    2 - Da nice form
    3 - Da imba form
    The first spell he casts is the number 1, the second is number 2 and the third is number 3 (I'm a genius xD)
    The trick is that he can combo using the first form of a skill and then the second form of another skill.
    To render this in D3W, and I'm not the best map maker of the world, but if I was to make the triggers, I think there is two options :
    - The "simple" one would be to create 3 versions of each attack skill, and when casting a skill, you replace the attack skills with their level 2 counterparts.
    - The nicer but "triggery" way would be to create all-triggered skills, and a counter that counts "one-two-three-one-two-three" and goes up each time a skill is cast.
    When casting a spell, the trigger would check the counter and cast the matching form of the skill.

    This bald man is surely gonna be a pain in the ass ^^ .

    I already said that we know about the monk t_t you dont have to say like everything about him anyway (im talking about the bottom part where you explain the combo system).

    And he is a monk from diablo 1 afterall.. Even if he is totally different, i dont think they would ever get the idea to even make a monk if it wasnt in the diablo 1 expansion & a monk is a monk, even though they are different.

    And the Monk will be a "holy" character, that uses spells that has Holy FX and such things, they said it all when it was behind the scenes.
    The FX will be a holy theme for he's skills with colors of Silver & Gold, also combined silver & gold will be used.
