You have like 5+ hours of monk content on your channel and I rly don't want to look all that again to find few minutes of gameplay with DAIBO :/
Ah, I apologize, I missed that part when I read your post. I did use the Daibo in very early videos. I quickly found I prefer the dual wield style in order to get faster spirit generation and to get the 3rd combo hit out more often. Not to say it couldn't be useful, I just like fast attack speeds.
The problem right now is that the Daibo, like other class specific items, seems to be nearly non-existent in the beta now, moved to a higher item level and thus spawning some time after the Skeleton King. I don't think I can give a fair analysis until I can get my hands on a good magical or rare Daibo. Maybe I'll craft one just to see.
In the meantime, since I'm not supposed to double post, I have more videos!
The Demon Hunter series has concluded and what an epic adventure it was. A very hard fought fight with the Skeleton King in part 3 where I forget.. twice.. that I have a potion button. Part 4 is just a followup on the final skills that can be learned in beta. I didn't fight the Skeleton King again as I was getting a bit too tired after massive XP farming. I NEED to get more XP gear for the vids after the SK.
