The world of Sanctuary is a BIG place, defended by hundreds of thousands of heroes each and every day. To help you get to know some of these fellow nephalem a little better, we've created the Fresh Meat N' Greet.

The Fresh Meet N' Greet is a recurring series of interviews featuring you, our community. A few times each month, we'll sit down and chat with six different community members, one for each class, and then post our Q&As right here in these forums.

Up this week for Monks: Teckno#1555

Read on below to find out more about your fellow ally in battle!

Grimiku: What would you like to tell us about yourself?

Teckno#1555: I'm 28 years old. I'm a stay at home care taker. Currently taken care of my 98 year old aunt, before that was my grandmother. I love the outdoors when its spring and summer. Like to work on the yard and garden. I'm also really big into Gaming, who could of guessed!

Grimiku: Got any cool hobbies or talents?

PLAYER: So my biggest Hobby is gaming. I love to swim and work outside when it gets into season! I recently started a Youtube channel, its a little new hobby of mine. Its pretty cool and fun. I just hope I can keep up with this new patch. There are lots of fire builds for me to find!!! Sadly all the builds will be out of date since this new patch. Just means more fun to make new videos asap!! If your interested. https://www.youtube.com/user/darthtrunks/featured

Grimiku: What’s your history as a gamer, and with the Diablo franchise?

Teckno#1555: Was born with a NES in the house, the very first Christmas I could remember I got an SNES. I started heavy on the PC once my Cuzin introduced me to Jedi Knights Dark Forces II. We played that on the MSN Gaming Zone, along with Age of Empires II and Rogue Spear. I was around 10-11 years old when I got into the MSN Gaming Zone online community.

I guess to get more in depth. I use to be part of a really awesome Counter Strike Lan Team. We had a Lan Center called Clickz sponser us for a few months. It was a really awesome fun time during my teenage years. Wouldn't give it away for anything. Of course we weren't good enough to hold onto our team for long, but it was awesome and we tried our best. =D I could go on forever talking about, counter strike, unreal tournament, and countless other games my life encountered, but we are here for Diablo!

I admit, I never played through D1. I got into D2 when it was released, Friends and I loved it! Ever since than I played D2 off and on till D3 came out. I like D3 a lot more and its a good fun change, I feel 10 years+ of D2 is enough. Keep the good Patches coming for D3!!!!

I have been gaming literally my whole life, and haven't stopped yet.

Grimiku: What are some of your favorite games?

Teckno#1555: Zelda: a Link to the Past. Tons of Final Fantasy games. Diablo ^_^. League of legends. My all time favorite game is hands down Jedi Knights Dark Forces II. Not the Single player, but the online experience it brought with it. It was my first online gaming experience, and I cant even begin to describe how much joy and emotion it brought to me. I had a couple close friends who also played along my side during those times. Nothing will be able to top Jedi Knights. Now that I look back at it, I was owning people my age when I was 11-14 years old. Ohh the good old days... :p

Grimiku: Do you play any other classes?

Teckno#1555: I recently got into a Wizard, there super fun. I was trying to make a cold build work out, it was working decently for T6. I'm sure I can make a Cold Wiz work more well after this super duper patch. I have a pretty awesome DH, but I haven't touched it in a long time.

Monk is just so awesome and 95% of my D3 play time is spent on Monk. I love Monk <3

Grimiku: Are you in a great clan or community? If yes, tell us about them!

Teckno#1555: I'm in the BEST community, haha. =D I'm currently in Banned of Gamers, and I don't plan on leaving. Really fun awesome people. Laid back and chill, always fun to jump in a game with any of these guys n girls. If your interested check us out! http://bannedofgamers.com/index.php

Grimiku: What's your most embarrassing moment while playing?

Teckno#1555: This is a tough one, have to think for a moment... I really can't think of anything. I guess its when I die in front of other Monks countless times when I felt like I was a very strong Monk. I just hate to die in the game when I'm really trying, and it sucks to do it in front of other Monks you respect and look up to. Most of the times I don't care and its whatever, everyone dies in D3. =D

Grimiku: Okay, what about your most AWESOME moment while playing?

Teckno#1555: Way back when, Monks Lashing Tail Kick: Sweeping Armada use to knock back back enemies off the screen. I joined one of Druids Viewer games when he use to stream. The first thing I did was put this skill on and started kicking away!!! He finally noticed it and had a real good laugh, was really fun times.

Grimiku: What drew you to the Monk?

Teckno#1555: I always loved the assassin & agility type fighters in games I played. Fast paced and can kick !@#. Monk fit that roll perfectly, and it was the first class I tried, and now almost all my D3 play time is with the Monk.

Grimiku: What's your favorite skill (or skill rune), and why?

Teckno#1555: Lashing Tail Kick: Spinning Flame Kick. I love how its a projectile and it looks awesome. I really wish it can go through waller elites, or I would use it a lot more.

Grimiku: What build are you running currently?

Teckno#1555: I currently run a Fire LTK build, with lots of CDR, sometimes with Fire EP + Gundo Gears, other times with Cyclone Strike + Strongarm Bracers. There was recently a patch change, so I will be trying out the new Raiment set for awhile!

Grimiku: Is there a particular item you’re after, and how would you change your build if you found it?

Teckno#1555: There really isn't any specific item I'm looking for atm. I usually try to hold anything I get that's good and use it when I want. I love to try to make other builds work outside of the meta.

Grimiku: If you could build a supporting set or Legendary item around a skill, what skill would it be and how would you support it?

Teckno#1555: I would build a belt that would support Lashing Tail Kick: Spinning Flame Kick. It would add one extra Tornado every time you cast it, and it would let it pass through wallers.

Grimiku: Name one piece of advice that you think every Monk should know.

Teckno#1555: RESPONSE

Grimiku: If there was one thing you could change about this class, what would it be?

Teckno#1555: Change? I'll leave that to you guys!

Jokes aside, hmmm, another tough one. I guess I would have to try and make Lashing Tail Kick as strong as possible, especially the fire runes. Its what I enjoy the most with the Monk. I love Lashing Tail Kick, and I love the Fire builds it brings along with it.

Grimiku: Pick a Monk quote!

Teckno#1555: Understanding the weakness & strength of your enemy, as well as your own.

Grimiku: Which of your fellow Monks should we also interview?

Teckno#1555: Colt#2370

Grimiku: What’s another question you’d like to see in these interviews?

Teckno#1555: If you could add another game mode to the online experience for D3 what would it be? No offline solo stuff allowed!!!

Grimiku: Darth originally asked a question that was very similar to one I already asked, so I’m going to refer to an older interview I had with Bacon. He asks: “If you could add any other class ability to Monk, what would it be?”

Teckno#1555: A Wizard Skill. Slow Time.

Got any questions yourself for Teckno#1555? Post them below!
