    Great video would like to see more like them. I am not a fan of the monk never have been but that video almost makes me change my mind. Would be cool to have a video like this when in character creation.

    One small criticism, the fain death animation would fool no one. Looks like someone trying to fall down without getting a scratch on them. Can you rag doll maybe? If you could it might make for some funny screenshots.

    Neat little featurette.

    If this is a test of “Do our fans like this type of content”? The answer is YES!

    Yea these little clip videos are great, if anyone wants more then eventually the high functioning youtubers will make the hour plus video of the class breakdown.

    Love the new video! I didn't click on it at first because I thought it was the same one published earlier. Definitely worth the quick watch. I agree with others, I would enjoy seeing this for the other classes as well.

    I also expected this to be a just a highlight from the dev stream, but was pleasantly surprised! Enjoyed the nice feature video

    That short clip is exactly what should be displayed during character creation (maybe a 15-20sec version/.GIF displaying typical armor and expected actions/gameplay once you learn to play the game).

    As mentioned by others, Monk has not been my personal class of choice, but that preview definitely makes it more desirable.

    Great stuff! Thank you for the clip!

    Been looking at the Monk for a while now, can't wait to start throwing out some elbows! (going to guess upgrades to the elbow skill add a bleed effect)

    Awesome upload!

    I know it's not the focus of the video, but I love the combat training room. Something about hitting a target dummy really hits home for me. It's a small feature, but feels integral for testing out builds and practicing your abilities. Very cool environment to showcase the monk toolkit.

    Great vid. Now just need the Dire Lord, Wizard and Shaman ability trailers then the new ones as classes release. Very cool way to showcase classes.
