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.
IT'S ALL PIPES!

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)
uhhh

...but there is no extra damage.
lightning punch with no weapon - 3 damage
lightning punch holding axe - 3 damage, and the axe disappears during the animation.

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.
