Has anyone heard if they are thinking about a martial/monk type dps class?

I have not heard anything, but I imagine some of the skills and dps qualities will be represented in the rogue class. All out melee dps has to be a rogue quality.

If you are thinking along the lines of the feign death ability and how that was useful for a lot more than just escaping a fight, I haven't seen anything like that talked about anywhere. The dev's have said that the game is based on the tank, heal, dps group model and not the tank, heal, dps, crowd control model of earlier games. I am curious what is in this game in terms of the pull and cc aspects myself.

I could see a Monk class being implemented, its defiantly a distinct melee class.

I am not thinking FD as much as a token Allakhazam model :-)

I have not seen anything about a Monk class, but given the soul design it would be fairly trivial to add one later. The devs have stated that they have tons of other Soul ideas that they don't have time to add before launch.

Now, the big question is where would a Monk soul get added? I could possibly see a Ninja as a Rogue soul or a more traditional Monk class as either a Cleric or Warrior soul.

Don't think there's an official "Monk" class but if you combine certain skills from different souls you can easily mimic one.

Half the fun of a monk is the combat art style, could we really mimic that though?

Afaik there's no bare handed melee class. The most resembling would be imho a justicar, which kind of reminds me of a Monk with a staff
