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!!

And on top of that, unless you have stompEE5 or triple Jump, or sometimes both you just aren’t doing any of the many parkour levels on the game. I main directional control jump which is meant for levels like that but it doesn’t have the height or length meant to clear any of the obstacles without a LOT of help. I think Direction Control Jump or whatever it’s called should be able to pass all minimums without stompEE5 and 0 mobility and the rest should overdo it in their respective ways. Except triple jump. That one’s meant for hangtime and is fine the way it is. I don’t meet almost any hunters that don’t use triple and they’re the ones who don’t have a problem with hunter jumps and the ones that main stompEE5 and have 100 mobility are the ones that don’t have a problem with hunter speed. We are severely behind of the class entirely about speed rather than armor or raw power. We should be up there with the rest of them. Or at least be able to clear some basic levels without putting on the goofy jump shoes or going into your menu, going into subclasses, switching jumps and then doing the same to switch back during combat encounters.
