During our visit to the Blizzard Entertainment’s studios in Irvine, to attend the Fansites Summit, all the community managers encouraged fansites to be active and to forward to them questions. We just got a go-ahead this week to gather questions from our community about the Monk Class.
We are now taking question submissions from our community for a Q&A with the Diablo III developers. Our Q&A will focus on the Monk Class, but questions about other aspects of Diablo III you may have seen at Blizzcon that you wish to learn more of are welcome.
You can add your questions on the comments below, or at the following forum thread.
Need help to craft your questions? Please, review the current information Flux has written about the Monk Class and Monk Skills, and if you still have questions…. visit the Monk forum. Flux played each class for an hour each at the Blizzcon press room through both days.
I had read Diablo: The Kingdom of Shadow already twice, but I spent the past three days both reading again the Diablo: The Kingdom of Shadow novel by Richard A. Knaak, and filling the Diii.net wiki at Diablowiki.net with a rough summary of the novel. I’m pretty bad with english grammar, and summarizing, but if you don’t mind spoilers go ahead and read it.
Feel free to make corrections, or adding stuff that is missing.
Those who look forward to read the novel, if you don’t find the stand alone book, I recommend buying the Diablo Archive which contains four Diablo novels: Demonsbane, The Kingdom of Shadow, The Black Road and Legacy of Blood.
What is the importance of Diablo: The Kingdom of Shadow? That’s where the events of the fabled lost ruined city of Ureh take place. When Blizzard took me to Paris to attend the Blizzard Worldwide Invitationals 2008, I had a big hunch they would announce Diablo III. They did. As the Cinematic Intro played on the huge screen, I saw a ruins embedded on a mountain. I immediately recognized this. The cinematics showed Ureh. That means it will play an important role in the Diablo III storyline.
Thus, to those living outside United States who do not have access to the novel, I guess the summary will be very useful. Of course, residents of United States and those with access to buying the book won’t cheat and read the spoilers. [grins]
