The Taken King is upon us, which brings a new set of subclasses for Destiny in Year Two.
The Hunter’s new sublcass is called the Nighstalker, which is their first real support subclass. The Bladedancer was kind of a support class, but kind of indirectly using stealth for revives, etc.
There are some familiar perks in here that you’ve seen before in the other subclasses, but there are some new perks that look very interesting. With the right perks, this subclass can be a crazy orb making machine!
