Blizzard officially unveils female Monk for Diablo III

Tuesday, 9th February 2010 14:30 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Last week, Blizzard slightly showed off the female Monk from Diablo III to the Jace Hall Show.

Now, it has officially unveiled the character on the D3 web site.

She’s pretty much the same as her male counterpart, only she has different body parts.

Head on over and have a look.

Game’s out sometime in the future, when flying cars will be the norm.

    I wonder if Blizzard have to pay Games Workshop / Citadel Miniatures a royalty fee for perpetually ripping off their art style?

    A) Only men can become Chán Buddhist monks at the Shaolin Monastery in Henan Province, China. (Given the amount of time you spend on YouTube, I’d have thought you could run a simple Google search.)

    B) Blizzard owe *much* more to Warhammer and Warhammer 40K in terms of mood and art style than to anything else you care to mention.

    Wait… just realised I’m arguing with BDH.

    Yes, yes – you’re right! Of course there are female Shaloin monks and Blizzard definitely drew their inspiration from wholly original sources!

    That’s Tai Chi, not Shaolin Kung Fu, you twerp. She’s not a monk, she’s just practising Tai Chi!

    It’s like comparing Latin American Catholicism with Germanic Protestantism.

    she is a monk, good fiighter too and well respected. By the way if there is no female monks out there how did wing chung come about?

    they say wing chung was made by female monks and one of the best arts.

    I don’t get it – how you can be arguing over that and get mad about it? Amazing.
