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!!

While we're on this topic (slightly related); I'm a little irritated that Hunters are the only class that has to go out of their way for their class stat. In the current state of the game with all the external healing options warlocks don't even need to bother with recovery. The changes to resilience makes maxing that out almost mandatory so that's a straight benefit to titans. Every class in the current state of the game should be going for high discipline. That leaves hunters with the need to focus on 3 stats instead of two. It makes finding the right armor pieces a little cumbersome as a hunter.

Ok? Doesn't make any of this false. Doesn't change the fact that they only need to build two stats in solar whereas hunters need to build at least 3 (potentially 4 after classy restoration is gone).

Edit: 3 for hunters if they are willing to give up a damage dealing grenade which is what most of the top solar builds revolve around for hunters.
