Every class is amazing and overpowered. That's how they were designed. Play what you think you'll have fun with.

The lure of the monk for many people is the potential speed and the combos(no other class has combos). However, under the current combo system must is still desired. If you are curious how the monk could be awesome read the attached link. I go into great detail on how a few simple tweaks could expand and refine the current system.

Please note that many of my concerns about the combo system appear to be speed independent so unless Blizzard does a few tweaks there will be no difference between level 13 and 60.

You're asking someone to explain dozens of active and passive abilities to you, not to mention all the runes which multiply the amount of actives times 5. Did you want a book? that's what it would take. Go on this site to the monk character generator and look through the skills.

If you have a specific question, I'll be glad to try to help you with it. But explain the class? Your talking 21 skills times 5 runes for each plus 15 passives.

That's just to start...

Just know as a Monk. You will be a support for your team, a fearless leader who's capable of taking lots of damage and mitigating that damage through DR, Dodge, and Healing.

You can have a pet called Mystic Ally

You have paladin auras from D2 called Mantra's

You have the best healing skills in the game.

You also have some of the best CC in the game as well.

If you like up close combat that is fast paced and exciting. The monk will be for you.

The wizard plays a lot slower than the monk. They have more nukes and are designed for damage.

Monks don't have many nukes, but their attack speed and combination skills allow them to maintain a fierce arsenal of martial art tactics that will crush the demon hordes who dare to face you.

It's not amazing... its just a class, why is wizard amazing? What do I like about monk? I like how I can be tanky and do heavy dps at the same time, I like how it can fill three roles (dps, tank, healer/support)... I dunno, why does anyone like any class in any game? Some are just more fun to play for certain people...

Monk isn't some revolutionary class, I just like it more than the other 4 classes and enjoyed playing it more in beta, thats all.

ROFL. Why? You asked an incredibly general question about an entire class! We spend pages discussing one particular rune on one particular power and you just want us to:

ROFL. You'll go far in life. All I said was ask a specific question, not something so general! It's like a little kid asking how a car works! Do you want me to say, there's a, engine that runs on gas that makes it go? Or do you want me to get into electrical systems, the transmission, cooling systems, chassis, what an internal combustion engine is, how brakes work?

That's what you did? You think i'm a
