The Monk is a class with fast melee attacks. It appears to rely entirely, or at least mostly on its fists and fist based weapons similar to the weapon choice of the Assassin in the previous game. Some attacks will have a limited range, so not all combat occurs at very close range. He also possesses holy-light abilities which allow for healing, along with Mantras which share similarities to Auras from the Paladin class. Monks use Spirit as the source for their holy attacks.
Despite compatible game play, Blizzard stated that it has no intention of releasing the game on a console. However, they apparently changed their minds as official sources confirmed a team was working on some form of console version. Among other things, a free digital copy of Diablo 3 which can be downloaded before the game’s release. The digital copy can also be purchased, first available on March 15, 2012. This way, players can immediately install and play the game on launch day. If a player tried to install before launch, they got the message: The fire from the sky still falls. Diablo 3 has not yet launched.
System Requirements Edit Twenty years have passed since the destruction of the World stone, the ending of Diablo 2: Lord of Destruction. The world of Sanctuary was prepared for an invasion from the Burning Hells. However, the invasion never happened, prompting Deckard Cain to seek information as to why. Much of the story will be based around the Archangel Tyrael. Archangel Imperious is present as well. It has been confirmed that at least one of the two remaining Lesser Evils, Azmodan and Belial, is behind the failed invasion of Sanctuary, and that Act II of the game will heavily focus on deception due to its association with Belial. That being said however, Diablo’s 3 gold return has been confirmed, despite his earlier death.
