The Monk looks really fun. I hope the mechanic changes don't make the customization feel too restricted compared to Diablo II.

I hope you are joking, though I don't believe you are. Did you even play Diablo II? You got to place every single stat and skill point you earned where you wanted and the gear was so open that you could play each class about 30 different ways.

Also try swapping the word skill with penis every time they mention it.

I think he means physical customization like hair, etc.  Though given how far out the camera is, it's largely pointless honestly.

Just became a subscriber again for the first time since the first month of premium memberships. Some videos like TNT and this quick look don't load when I choose HD. Is there just no HD version of these or is something bugged for me?

Monk has monster thighs.

Also I'm looking forward to some good 'ol Diablo gameplay but I'm not really a fan of this art style.

Question about skill slots: Can you map their activation to buttons other than your number keys? ie mouse buttons?
