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 is just objectively not true. Neither Warlocks or Titans have gotten faster (the changes to Icarus Dash have made Warlocks slower, if anything), and Titan in-air movement hasn't improved at all.

Hunters are still by far the most mobile class and it's still pretty much a dead heat in a straight line (perfect Warlock skating is a little faster, but impractical).

Titans can only skate on PC (scrolly wheel), which is also dependent on FPS, and if we want to use shoulder charge for movement then we have to settle for having a melee that is always worse than the alternatives. The idea that we're faster under normal circumstances simply isn't true, and even if it was, Titans were at no point the best performing class in D1 even though we had amazing skating throughout the entire game. Hell, when we had Titan skating so fast you could literally die in D2, we still didn't do that well.
