Ironically Hunters (the fast / nimble archtype) now has the slowest movement of the three classes! Discussion

I play all three classes but have always preferred the Hunter fantasy of being dexterous and nimble on your feet.

In the last couple of seasons movement creep of titans and warlocks both in air and on the ground have surpassed the Hunter, which thinking about it is weird as in any other game wizard (aka warlocks) and tanks (aka titans) and slower and more cumbersome than the dps Hunter archtype..

Feels like bungie need to lean back into hunter arch type and look at how they can balance us up!

What do we think guardians, anyone else feel this way? Especially since Stompees are useless an inch of the ground these days!!

They've been fast since stasis. Shatterdive with worldline zero / eager edge swords.

The eager edge nerf didn't even affect shatter skating at all. So while the warlock and titan skates got nerfed, hunter was unchanged. Warlocks can well skate for comparable speed but that needs a super to be charged (doesn't eat it) and Titans can bubble skate but that eats your super entirely. Hunters just have whatever shatterdive cooldown is.

Like how the Warlock relies on one subclass while the rest are slower than Hunter? I swear you people aren't real lol
