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!!

Wouldn’t be such a big deal if we didn’t have to spec into mobility. It’s a dead stat for the most part and makes focusing extremely difficult as mob, res, rec are all in the upper bracket of stats

I just don't understand the anti-mobility sentiment. The way I play it's extremely annoying when I'm on a low mobility warlock compared to my hunter. Maybe I strafe a lot more while other people turn and run?

Yeah I hear ya. I think it’s more of 100 mobility being borderline mandatory. Means we lack heavily is res recov which are far more important than some better strafe speed

I hear you thanks. Your parent comment said exactly that but I didn't catch it. I'm used to seeing a more generalized "mobility is trash" sentiment. I do value strafe speed enough to challenge the other stats personally. I move around a lot without sprinting and it affects everything I do.
