As the intro trailer suggests, The Diablo III Monk is every bit the expert melee combatant that you would expect.
The Monk uses Spirit as a resource pool which is slowly regenerated by attacking enemies.
Utilizing the Elements and the power of the Gods, the Monk uses martial arts to combat its foes. Attacks such as Fists of Thunder do an alarming amount of damage as the Monk’s fists now use the power of lightning to smite foes and to gain Spirit. Coupled with Blinding Flash, which is as it sounds, any attacking enemy can quickly be dealt with.
The Monk also utilizes several Mantras that offer the Monk and all nearby allies different types of protection. For instance, the Mantra of Evasion grants all allies within forty yards a twenty-five percent chance to dodge an incoming attack.
Whether the Monk is using Holy powers for protection through Mantras or extending the reach of their strikes, this Holy Warrior definitely packs a punch against the forces of evil that plague the land.
