    No. Clerics and monks are 2 separate orders both in RL and the majority of games.

    Monks do not fall under the cleric category as they are not really a healing class. I could see them being a second rogue tank soul though, with high avoidance - but they would have to cut out bows, guns, and daggers from their weapons list. However, I would not be against a monk spin-off for each calling. a Mage monk would be pimp... all sorts of martial enchantments and elemental damage procs and defenses. I could dig it.

Could be Guardian only, and another similar class for the Defiants, like Wizard (not sure what would be opposite of a monk, figure Defiants would want to stay away from religion.)

    I'd like to see others ideas on this.
    Sounds like the friar class from DAoC...I liked that and wouldn't mind seeing it added here.

    LOL I was halfway through making a post about the Friar before I decided to back out. I'm glad somebody remembers that class. Looks like a mage until you go to fight him, then he busts out the kung fu and wipes you all over the floor. As a stealther I hated them with a passion. Them and Reavers. If we had Friars in this game the rogues would be screaming bloody murder.

    Are you ******ed?

    People have wanted monks in this game far before WoW publicly released any info at all about their new expansion.

    So while we're blatantly borrowing other games classes Defiant can have Jedi Knights to balance against Guardian monks. (they're a type of religion free monk after all ) ;)
    misconception. Defiant also has religious followers, just not followers of the Vigils

    lol

    see this is what I mean when I say "every body and their grandmother are afraid to take ideas from WoW,, even if its not an original idea from WoW"

    case and point, Monks... Nothing in WoW is original,,, when will WoW haters realize this?

    they dont want feature "X,Y,Z" because WoW has it.... smh.... WoW will have Black Garden as well,,,, so I guess these WoW haters should want Trion to remove BG now, since WoW has it,,, right?


    yeah,,, good idea,,, for destroying Rift, as well as the genre with that kind of mindset

    Lets Go Rift. Hope Archeage can do something next. Lets Save Rift

    Not necessarily, a lot of other games have had monks long before WoW. In a sense, WoW has become just like every other game.

    Huh?

    EQ had them long before WoW even existed.

    EQ2 it's a fighter class, a "light" tank even. Different than the Scout class (like Assassins and Swashbucklers), which are DPS classes.

    THAT DOESNT MATTER

    to people like this. anything that WoW has, yet another developer didnt already have, is considered treason.

    I think we can expect to see Monks at some point. Possibly in an expansion. Also, WoW did not invent Monks. That's like saying they invented Mages or Paladins. From what I hear WoW Monks are going to be ridiculous anyway. I'd love for Trion to show them how to do it.

    Didn't realize all cleric souls are focused on healing.

    Damn my shaman, druid, cabalist, inquisitor are going to be mad that their not real cleric souls.

    Nope.

    Monk is the lamest class ever created. Was lame in D&D, Guildwars, World of Warcraft now, and it doesn't need to be in Rift.
