King Leoric sounds hilariously awesome with his haunting trait. Also dat March of the Black King. I like the idea of the monk picking his trait, that sounds pretty cool. They were going to do that with Johanna originally (Tank/DPS stance) but couldn't get it to work well enough for her. Looking forward to the new map too.

Soooo Amazon too? She's shown in the video multiple times. Very excited all around.

That's a skin for Nova.

I didn't see any Amazon, so I'm guessing you're talking about the Demonhunter Nova skin.

Also, this looks awesome. New map, new skins more gold, what's not to like.

Woot! I get to have my Monky goodness! Been waiting for that for a while now xD I'm curious as to what his ultimate ability will be. Possibly the 7 Sided Strike thing.

I still can't get over the Crusader's shitty hair cut... she has such a nice head of hair in diablo 3 and they gave her that god awful buzz one side comb over thing in this. It's so hard to look at.

Seven sided strike, maybe that level 61 buff ability?

I'm really interested in the idea of the Monk. You get to be any non specialist role (stuck in one obviously once you pick it). Wonder how much that choice changes the talents later on. Like, do you suddenly get extra support based talents if you pick the support one or do some talents modify themselves completely to make them heavily support based.

Either way, I'm expectin the Monk to fit more into the mold of Sonya, Tassadar, and Tyrande. Sort of hybrid whichever way you build them.

Really curious how the monk is goin to classify itself for dailies. Will it just always count for support/assassin/warrior ones since the possibility to be any of the 3 exists at any time? That'd be cool. One hero would be able to cover the majority of daily quests (if you enjoy the hero).

And I've said it before and I'll say it again. That map looks ridiculously cool.
