Fourth Guardian Class Suggestion

Ok, so I'm a huge fan of mages, so I'm already going to main Warlock and love it, but since there will undoubtedly be guardians added later I thought I'd pitch an idea I had, called The Siren. This class would be the bard of destiny, with their first 2 subclasses being similar to the Warlock, in that one would be focused on offense while the other focuses on team buffing. Sirens are born when their ghost revives them, and the light effects their vocal cords, allowing them to create sonic frequencies unlike any other known life form, or to weave light into music to boost moral or miraculously heal non-fatal wounds. The people capable of becoming Sirens are rare, most not knowing they can achieve these feats until only recently. So the first subclass, the one you start with is called the Muse subclass and would be for players who prefer an entirely supportive role. The Muse's super is called Joyous Hymn, and increases team damage and accuracy, but reduces movement speed and reload speed, it can be upgraded later to reverse the original effects, increasing movement and reload speeds while decreasing damage and accuracy, and later can be upgraded to leave speed, damage, and accuracy all slightly decreased while increasing total health and recovery rate. The effects of the hymn would only last about 20 seconds and only reach out to effect team mates within a certain distance, and orbs of light would be generated by how much your team is helped. The second subclass is called the Banshee subclass and is the offensive side to the Siren. The Banshee's super is called Sonic Wail, and would be a sonic shreek spread out in a cone shape directly in front of the Siren, with an additional 2 foot radial pulse around the Siren. The amount of damage done by the wail would drop off the further away the enemies are but would deal massive damage to those at the epicenter. The wail can later be upgraded to sacrifice the cone dispersal to make it a radial blast with less reach than the cone, but slightly less damage drop off. The final upgrade lets the Banshee lob a sonic pellet forward that erupts upon contact with any surface, including enemies, and then creates an even smaller sonic blast with a radius of about 5 feet, with no damage drop off. All of the Banshee's super variants deal decent damage with a slight debilitating effect similar to the Titan's flash grenade but instead of blinding enemies it staggers them for a second, after which their accuracy suffers for a short time due to the intense pain in their ears throwing off their equilibrium, bosses would recover faster of course. The Siren's melee would be a kick, and special melee is a close range roar that staggers enemies. I had some trouble thinking of grenades to fit this class, but one of the grenades should use light to damage enemies and heal allies. The movement skill should focus on using small sonic bursts to propel the Muse upwards. The Siren will have the softest armor type in the game, silk robes that are more flowing and ornate than the Warlock's robes. The Siren's class armor would be amulets, but would be worn tight around the neck to protect the throat, some of the higher level amulets would even begin to extend down over the shoulders, down the back, or even up over the mouth. Well, that's my idea so far. Let me know what you think, I don't mind hearing constructive criticism, that's how bungie comes up with their ideas, someone makes a pitch and then they spitball it until it is complete. Update: Changed class name to Siren and subclass to Muse, because it makes more sense given the characteristics of each creature. I know it kinda buts heads with borderlands but oh well.

  • I say a fourth class should be either all three combined (the wanderer) [all base stats are below half] but idk about that one. Or a Valkyrie class. To fit the medieval theme of the class names

    • I saw another post where someone suggested a class that actually uses the darkness to fight the darkness. I think a class based around that idea would be both fun and fit the story of destiny. Could be added later with dlc.

    • Stupid suggestion. They have ONE month you idiot. Should have. Suggested it about a year ago, then they might have read it.

        I can see bungie adding additional classes and races with new expansions/dlc. I think the classes at the moment are pretty balanced and a great start. At least your throwing out some ideas for later.

          Okay no offence but how frigin stupid would it look for a guardian to be screaming dudes heads off in PvP or screamin at the floor to lift yourself up XD come on man i'm frigin laughing my ass off just thinking about a guy shouting at the floor. But i agree with your idea, we need a healer kind of support character. I think he should have a healers touch melee override where if you melee a teammate (go along with me on this) you instantly restore a portion of their health maybe a third and upgrades such as having a heal aura being able to heal multiple teammates with healing touch and allowing constant health regeneration. I think that would be really frigin awesome

          • How about the fourth class be Rogue Ghost. They deemed no one worthy to carry on with the Travelers Light so they poses a body for them selves to fight the Darkness. Powers would be tech based and electrically based. Just spit ballin' ideas here.

            • The support subclass is already with the warlock. I'm fine with the warlock, I think he's a badass. Just leave it alone

              • Wow. This is a very interesting idea. However, I have a few questions to ask. What damage type would the sonic screech deal? Also, all the classes have a weak point (warlock=defense, hunter=regen, titan=speed), but also have a strong point. What would this be of the muse? I've gotta say, though, this is an amazing idea. Might not be implemented in the game, but still, very impressive.

                  Not bad, one of the better suggestions I've seen for a fourth class. Though I think the Siren's Super could use some work, because the tradeoff seems unnecessary for a Super ability.

                  • I like it I think that it would give people that want to play support at the beginning of the game. This is one of best new class I have seen.

                      Name it not the Muse but a Bard and I will play it. Bards can be both genders. Good idea actually

                    • There was a Bard class for the 1st edition of AD&D, as I recall it was way over powered. Also if your going to stay in character your going to need to sing over your mic. If your willing to follow me around and sing ballads to my adventures I'm willing to give it a go.

                    • Like the idea man but idk if Bungie will go for it cause they don't want any class to be a "healer" or "support" class. We all damage, we all take damage. That easy.

                      • Not keen on the idea tbh, mainly this part: "The Siren's super is called Joyous Hymn, and increases team damage and accuracy, but reduces movement speed and reload speed". Supers aren't really supposed to have trade-offs, especially for your allies who have no control over when you're about to nerf their agility. The cost of using a Super is having to charge the meter. Also it sounds like the Warlock has this role covered anyway with the team buffing, and wielding light from the Traveler makes more sense to me than using your voice.

                          • Interesting Idea, but I just don't see how Bungie creates room for a fourth class in this game. Not when everything seems to be organized around "three's". 1. Three races---human, awoken, exo 2. Three classes---Titan, Warlock, Hunter 3. Three powers from the Traveller---Solar, Arc, Void. 4. Three man fire teams. I just dont' see how you cram a fourth into that..and avoid creating a class that is redundant...or destroys Bungies desire to keep this game primarily a FPS.

                              • I think a fourth class would be hard to do, I do however think they will make new guardians in the next destiny, and then they could implement new guardian ideas like yours

                                  • The cleric. With holy symbol class item and subclasses buffing allies, healing allies, an ability that revived all fallen guardians within a certain range of him/her. Melee the righteous touch which deals overtime damage. Grenades an aoe grenade that buffs health regen of allies inside, a grenade that revives fallen guardians that it land near. Just some ideas I love clerics.
