Diablo III Beta Ending; Monk Trailer

The Diablo III Website has a new feature on the Monk class in Blizzard's upcoming action/RPG sequel, pointing the way to this reveal with details and a new trailer. They also announce the beta test for the game is drawing to a close in two weeks:

In preparation for the launch of Diablo III on Tuesday, May 15, the beta servers will be brought offline on Tuesday, May 1. At that time, all beta accounts and character information will be reset. Leading up to Diablo's May 15 launch date, players will only be able to create comments and forum posts on the official Diablo III community site if they have pre-purchased Diablo III or have a StarCraft II or an active World of Warcraft game license attached to their Battle.net account. In the meantime, we encourage everyone to stay tuned to this website for exciting news and updates regarding the upcoming release.

Does anyone have any experience with D3's online requirement causing lag? I'm curious about that part of it, whether the stupid thing lags in SP because of their servers being overloaded.

Does it load stuff from the server, or is the game entirely local, and they just added the always-on crap because of their precious real-money auction house?

I have been playing the beta for the last week or so. I only played in SP. I leveled all of the classes to 10 and beat the Skeleton King with each one as well. During all of that time, I lagged probably 4 times on my standard Comcast residential cable internet connection. None of the lags were longer then a second or two. The game seemed to wait for me in each case, so I think the server simply verifies what the client is doing. I could be wrong...but all I know is that when I did lag my health didn't suddenly drop, which indicates nothing was hitting me while I was "lagged".
