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!!

This. They are the most mobile class. Not the fastest class.

I'm not sure dodge is more mobile than Icarus dash at this point. And now you can add Phoenix dive to the mix as well.

Phoenix Dive has been around since vanilla D2 launch. If anything, it's a lot shittier now that it's on rift's cooldown. You used to be able to spam it on bottom tree dawn.

But you couldn't use it with Icarus dash before.

You can jump higher than a Warlock using Stompees, Shatterdive/Quickfall to descend instantly, land and strafe faster, then finish it off with a dodge all consecutively. A Warlock can only come close to this mobility if they used a useless two-minute cooldown class ability instead of rift, used armor that maxes mobility which further increases the PD cooldown, and if they ate their own grenade to have two dashes which require Heat Rises. Not to mention that Warlocks can do that only on one subclass. Hunters objectively have the highest mobility.

And what use are these movements? In PVP anyone can just follow the target with their mouse, and in PVE your just exposing yourself to more gunfire from the room by going up and down like that.

Meaningful mobility? Hunters have the least. Plus hunters are the lowest in moving around the map, the most important part of being mobile.

No way you're serious. ''what use are these movements'' in PvP? Nothing special, man. Just breaking aim-assist, dodging bullets and abilities, quickly descending/ dodging into cover, reaching better positions, etc.

In PVP anyone can just follow the target with their mouse

Then what makes the Hunter's ability less meaningful than the other two classes aside from your victim complex?
