    MiniMonk almost wanted to say that it was Seven Sided Strike runed, but from the way it seems to work(and the fact that Blizz probably haven't worked on runes with the Monk yet.), he is going to have to say that it is Dashing Strike.

    Yeah, the more MiniMonk looks at it the more he thinks its Dashing Strike. The second is most likely Lashing Tail Kick.

    That kick in the last pic looks awesome. Anyway, about the unknown skill, couldn't that be Dashing Strike? If you look closely at the skill effect's left side, it looks like someone running (head, elbow, leg).

    Great article. I really like hearing Jay's perspective on some of the early development experiences they had. And I really like how they are approaching the game design, and you can tell this has been a project that they are very passionate about. Despite the Bobby Kotick nonsense, it seems Blizzard is still working hard to produce a genuinely amazing game.

    We do have a D3 magazine scans gallery, where such things are collected. AFAIK, this is the first real D3 magazine (or website) preview. We've seen interviews, mostly on websites, but the previous magazine coverage was just culled from public info, and had no new images or Blizzard quotes.

    Since scrolling is earlier than clicking:

    Thanks to RisingRed for the spot and the scans.

    I'm quite fond of the glowing blue shield on the ground in that kicking screenshot. I wonder about the zombie just to the right of it, with the red glowing belly. Is it just in front of a health orb? Or just dying and the health orb has already appeared before the fall over animation is complete?

    Re: Gamepro Diablo III Interview

    I wondered that, too. It looks like the glow is coming from the zombie itself, like a debuff or something. I had suggested something similar with the glowing item color underneath the item on the ground forever ago, good to see they put that in. Not that they even saw my suggestion, just sayin'.

    I remembered that there were D2 magazine scans but I wasn't sure if the policy had changed. Didn't even know there was a gallery for it. >.>

    Flux is that monk skill long reach, have you seen it before?

    And if anyone is interested in video game narrative, I would definitely suggest getting the magazine. The entire magazine was pretty good. I was pleasantly surprised.

    Could be a new look on Exploding Palm, and that zombie's about to go nuke.

    Page 47 almost looks like it could be a concept painting.

    He meant, his first game he was taking part in development was Blood, not his first game ever played.

    Wow. Did they talk to functionally brain dead people?

    They are, but I'd rather have them oversized than glowing. :/

    Thanks for sharing, that was pretty awesome to read. Hope this was only the start of more magazine articles to come.

    I'll absolutely have to read the latest Diablo Novel Trilogy if I can find the time for it. :)
