I went back to my old Monk last night and it's still boring the shit out of me. Everything seems to take forever to kill compared to my Wizard or Demon Hunter. I don't even feel that much more survivable compared to them either. No surprise Monk was Jay Wilson's pet overtuned class, it has his robotic touch all over it. If someone has a good Monk build please let me know otherwise I'm shelving it.
Wizard was hella fun though. Arcane Hydra, Disintegrate, Blizzard and Ice Spike Magic Missile are a fun combo along with Ice armor and crystal skin for bosses. I found some legendaries last night and *gasp* they were upgrades. They even had stats appropriate to my level and class, it's a miracle.
Actually if anything the loot feels a bit overtuned itself, I found more useful drops last in a 2 hour session than I did in a month of playing the old game. In fact literally everything that dropped was useful in one way or another, no crap loot or whites at all. Maybe I just had a good run but hey I'm not looking a gift horse in the mouth.
