Bladedancer in Destiny 1 is a Hunter subclass for Guardians in Destiny.

Summary

The Bladedancer is a subclass for Hunters unlocked at level 15.

Grimoire Card Description

"Beautiful lethality, relentless style."

There's something to be said for the blade. A knife won't jam. A knife won't run dry. A knife is very, very quiet.

Leave the noise and fire to others. There's work to be done, out there in the dark - monsters that deserve death, delivered quickly, sometimes silently, and without mercy.
