So I've been working on the waterbender for 4E although its not done, (the others will come soon) and I would like to post it for the playground's opinion so without further ado:

Role: Controller, waterbenders use water to blast with huge waves or hinder foes by encase them in ice.
Power Source: Bending, through force of will, and natural ability waterbenders can manipulate water and ice.
Key Abilities: Wisdom, Dexterity, Contstitution
Armor Proficiencies: Cloth
Weapon Proficiencies: Any simple weapon
Defense Bonuses: +2 Reflex
Hit points at first level: 12+constitution score
Hit points gained per level: 5
Healing Surges per Day: 6+constitution modifier

Trained Skills: All waterbenders are trained in acrobatics in addition choose three skills from the following list: athletics, bluff, diplomacy, heal, insight, nature, perception, stealth and thievery.

Waterbender class features:

At 1st level all waterbenders have the at-will power Waterbend as described below.

Waterbend Waterbender class feature
“It was like nothing I had ever seen, she just moved and the water moved with her.”
At-will – cold
Standard action ranged 8
Target: one creature within range (see below)
Attack: Wisdom vs. Reflex (see below)
You can use one of the following applications of this power
Water Blast: deal 1d4+was mod. damage to the target. This attack counts as a basic attack.
Deflect attack: You may deflect an attack made by an enemy bender. To do this you must target an enemy’s power with the bending power source. Then you and the enemy using the power make opposed wisdom check with a modifier equal to your level. If you succeed then the attack is negated.
Manipulate: You may manipulate water into any shape you choose but intricate detail isn’t possible so forming the shape of a specific person is not possible. Additionally you may move any source of water to a location you choose the water can travel up to 10 squares/round.
Melt/Freeze: You may melt or freeze a source of water. Transformation takes a standard action to complete. Used on a creature with the cold subtype you deal 1d6 points of damage.

Icy Step
At 1st level whenever you walk on an icy surface you don’t need to make an acrobatics check and gain +2 squares movement.

Child of the full moon:
At night you gain a +1 to attack and damage rolls, and when underneath a full moon you gain a +3 to attack and damage rolls.
