They should make something similar to the Valewalker from DAoC (back in the day) it was a caster/melee hybrid class that used castable dots, castable lifesteal, and a sick Scythe that would combo well with the dots in order to bring down better armored foes but would be too squishy if faced vs an assassin.
"Valewalkers are cloth-wearing Hibernian mages who are given the ability to wield a large Scythe as a weapon. They are the strong arm of the Sylvan community - they are the primary fighters of this natural magic-using people. Valewalkers wear i mage-like cloth robes, which they can augment by casting armor-absorption and armor factor self-buffing spells. They also can evade and parry attacks.
Valewalker combat styles center around their magical nature, and augment their scythe's damage with magical effects. "
