The Stormcaller is the new sub-class for the Warlock, and is a sub-class designed to offer high close quarter damage. As a Stormcaller Warlock you'll be able to utilise the powerful Stormtrance which allows you to fire lightning from your hands. 

As you'll note below, the Stormcaller Warlock can improve their Grenades to gain area denial (Storm), or damage over time (Pulse). In addition, and as is standard with all Warlock sub-classes, their sub-class ability is known as Rift and allows them to improve themselves and their team. Finally and unlike other classes, the Warlock (and Voidwalker) gains access to Glide, allowing you to Blink.
