I don't know why people rage so much about these things. If, say, you don't like the fact monks can use a shield due to lore or whatever reason, don't use a shield. Its pretty much that simple. I doubt the best stuff for that class to use will be a shield anyway when you get to more end game gear. It just might help at a certain point along the way.
Nice dodge their umpa, face it the Starcraft team didn't waste their time with making jokes or removing systems in the game that have proven to be good and work good cause they didn't carebear it.
LOL! I didn't dodge you, I'm simply not stupid enough to get into this debate. I didn't get into it the first time little kiddies complained that it wasn't hardcore enough and I'm not going to do it now.
But sure, I dodged you and now D3 is gonna fail. Oh wait, no it isn't, it only appeared that way because you thought your opinion mattered.
