I just don't like the idea of a monk, and I don't believe I stated that with any anger toward anyone here. I really don't appreciate having you guys rip my throat apart for not agreeing with everything.
You mean me? I wasn't directing any of that at you, specifically. Moreso at the people having complete tantrums, i.e., 'OMG NOOOO I WANT MY KNIIIIIGHT' without so much as seeing some gameplay.
You said 'Eh, not my thing.' That's cool. Barbarian has never been my thing. It's just how it is.
Right on. I'm not saying it's going to be my first char. probably but I think it's a neat direction and has a LOT of potential, and I can't wait to see it. I'm not disappointed in any character or spell yet that I've seen.
Just wait for the cluster!#@% that will ensue when the 5th / final class is announced, there will be people sobbing for days that (insert class they wanted) didn't make it or was implemented in another form, without giving the classes we are getting a chance.
Blah, no one ever likes change. I can't believe how many people are already disappointed or giving up on the class because of 1 image and the title 'Monk'. We have no idea what his story his, how he fights, what his abilities are, etc. etc. etc.
Yeah, not buying that he's any kind of 'healer', in any sense. It would break the mechanic of all classes meant to be played both in SP as well as online.
And Psionics would be in line with his archetype, and there are a dozen ways they could implement absolutely badass psionic attacks with the engine they've been showing off (i.e., think of some of the Wizard abilities).
