    Black. In skin color, maybe soul, but who knows. Basically thats the only thing that was present in the previous Diablos that is not currently present (AFAIK) IN DIII is a black character. They may go on a limb and do something crazy like add a nonhuman player character, but i think that's unlikely seeing as how they recycled the barbarian and necromancer (witch doctor).

    As for class it will be something ranged, a ranger perhaps. hopefully it will be something new and unique, i just hope to god it's not a rogue.

    Isn't the WD black? Plus he has a Jamaican-like accent, factor in the character archetype it fits in with with an African tribal theme. Although it's fine if there is two characters with black skin. I always found it kind of bigoted for game companies to include one character of a certain race just to remain PC.

    As long as they have a skill tree dedicated to killing with a bow, I could care less what the class name, skill color or accent is.

    I always though of the WD as central american, but he could fulfill a variety of cultures.

    +1, they are obviously including someone / something that kill stuff with a ranged weapon ( minus the witch doctor blowgun ? thing )

    sanctuary in not earth i could care less about the color of the characters skin unless it looked stupid like pink skin :p

    seriously why bother with something that is in reality an difference in the pigment on the skin of various individuals of the same race here on earth.

    Maybe it will be a dark elf/ranger. That would be bad ***. Like a Drizzt Do-Urden character of the R.A. Salvatore's books. Essentially he's an elf/ranger whose people live underground and have black/purpleish skin. We will see.

    If the final class would be black, I would name him JohnShaft.

    Re: The next character will be....

    ...a ranged type with no magical skills. Just my assumption based on:

    Barbar - meele, does not use magic.
    WD - meele/ranged, uses magic.
    Wizard - ranged, uses magic.
    Monk - meele, uses magic.

    So we have:

    2x meele
    1x ranged
    1x meele/ranged

    3x magic type
    1x nonmagic type

    I would personally much prefer each class to be able to effectively wield a bow and make the 5th class something else

    Re: The next character will be....

    What do you mean by "effectively"? To solo hell? More? Because every class has its primary role, there would be no reason to have classes at all. Just one jack-of-all-trades type. Nonetheless, I'm sure there will be a lot of space for odd viable builds with every single class in Diablo 3.

    to do this all 5 classes would need bow skills which would either make the bow uselss of far too good. i much rather have a dedicated archer
