The Monk

Speediness is close to godliness

The Monk is Diablo 3's other melee class, next to the Barbarian (who returns from Diablo 2). But the two classes couldn't be more different—unlike the Barbarian, the Monk is about "speed, speed, speed," Martens said. "You can leap about the battlefield."

"It's not your basic warrior class from your classic RPG. This one's quite the twist on it," he continued. "It's unique."
