Diablo III Discussed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

AusGamers has posted a new interview with Blizzard Entertainment's Leonard Boyarsky and Christian Lichter about Diablo III, the upcoming return to the company's popular action RPG franchise. The topics discussed included the lore behind the recently announced Monk character class, catering to both loyal fans and newcomers to the Diablo universe, and systems for loot drops.

Leonard introduces us to the very interesting-looking Monk.

"The Monk is the Holy warrior of the game," he explains. "He is a member of a sect... a position in society where they report directly to the priest-kings. They're raised from an early age in secluded monasteries where they're taught to become pure expressions of their gods through the perfection of fighting techniques. So, to them, fighting is a way of praying, or giving thanks to god.

"Everything they do, for them, is sanctified. To prove how dedicated they are, they get a tattoo put on their back that is a symbolic representation of their one thousand and one gods - it takes their whole life to complete. Everything in their life is dedicated to their religion, their gods."

Of course though, this is Sanctuary, and things work a little differently than you or I might be used to.

"The church sometimes uses them for what other people might consider to be grey area stuff," Leonard says. "But these guys - for them, it's all straight ahead. They are, in their own minds, the holy warriors."
