On Kain's stances...
I like them, they all look nice, but I hate his melee stance. If I am going to box someone I want to look like I am going to box them, not like I'm standing around doing nothing in the middle of battle.
It might be good for RolePlaying, but not in real battle. Maybe if it was toggle-able to make the RPers happy I wouldn't mind, but not as a total replacement.
