I know this is a moronic question, as it should be basic knowledge. but since this game's manual is absolute garbage, I need some help. I'm playing as a monk and have been using the default lightning punch attack, doing 3 damage. great. now I just picked up an axe which should do more damage. I equipped it, my char is holding it, but i am still doing only 3, and can still only use the lightning punch. how do I swing the f****** axe? if the only option for attack is to use skills, what are weapons for? is it a monk thing? can they not equip and use weapons? help please...I haven't played diablo since 2002, and this game's documentation explains NOTHING.
someone mentioned earlier that if you don't have a skill equipped to a button, then you'll swing your axe. the thing is, you're just gimping yourself that way cause you're just doing weapon damage, not weapon+skill damage (that's the way i understood it anyways)
anyone? help? or does this issue not bother a single one of you guys?
Not sure what to tell you on this one. I just started playing g a monk a little while ago, and at lvl 11 I'm def doing more than 3 DMG. If anything the monk is tearing through monsters with just the default A skill.
