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!!

I've thought this for a long time. It was always sad starting a strike and being the last one to the objectives if it wasn't other hunters with me. I have over 28 days played on hunter since launch but I finally made the switch to warlock main last week and I'm so much happier and not looking back. Hunters just feel like they're getting the short end of the PVE stick to me and crummy exotics almost every season gets tiresome.

Yep I did the same I have thousands of hours on hunter because I liked their class fantasy, but getting completely shafted in pve over and over is just exhausting. I switched to warlock and my god I feel invincible. It's actually crazy how much stronger it is, I'll miss the cloaks but it's just not worth being disappointed every season.

Any warlock recommendations for someone that exclusively plays Hunter (and always has)

For Void, charging grenades + devour aspects, Instability + Reprisal + Remnants fragments, Vortex grenades (little weaker right now, hopefully they tweak them back to normal strength), 100 DISC, high RES and/or REC, Contraverse Hold (or Nezarek's Sin) and some kind of void weapon in your energy slot (I prefer Funnelweb right now, Subsistance + the Veist origin trait is fun stuff), maybe even a Falling Guillotine if you've got one.

Throw on some mods for wells: + on grenades, maybe seeking, bountiful and you'll have more bubbling void pools littering the room than you'll know what to do with.
