I already see hunters getting screwed in raids.

First off I'm hunter. Always will be. It feels like people already don't want hunters in their raid group. They say because it has no support sub class and would be useless. As someone who has raided for many years I know how important a dps is. Going into a raid with all warlocks and titans with their support sub classes active just won't work well. You need those killing machines. Could be a hunter, maybe a Titan with striker or warlock with it's void damage. The other thing is we don't even know at this point if the suspected third sub class for hunter is support or not. It may end up being some long rang heal or maybe even something that grants all your team invisibility. Who knows. Not sure why people are already shunning the hunter for raids but I can see the hunter being great in a raid as a bladedancer and I can't wait to see what the third sub class is if in fact we get one at release. It may very well end up being the best support sub class in the game, it may not but the point is hunters for life. Just like a lot of people who think the Titan is the best melee I beg to differ. Hunters melee is incredible. Note: I am not saying one class is better than the other. I actually think they are all great and I'll play all of them. Hunter will always be my main though. Just like the speed and throwing knife and the jump fits my playstyle. Very fast.

    Garrison and MP they don't like to get dirty, that's why we are the Scouts and have to leave the walls more often.

    • Anyone who knows what a raid is shouldnt be shunning hunters. at the very most a raid team in this game should be running 3 supports (at least one of them being a warlock and a titan) and 3 dpsers. at ther very least a hunter will make good trash clean up with golden gun instant killing weaker enemies and arc blade allowing you to melee hopefully a fair amount of enemies into the void. Sure i won't want BAD hunters on my raid team. But i wouldnt want a bad player of any class raiding with me.

    • I highly doubt class is as relevant in Destiny as it is in actual MMOs for raiding, so no worries.

    • I've played many MMO's where all support/tank is the most viable option. Wait until launch.

        Well, if hunters are [b]useless[/b] in raids then they'll get screwed. If hunters are [b]useful[/b] for raids, then the people who exclude them may fail raids. It's a non-issue, unless you think that Bungie was bright enough to build this game, but was then so stupid that they either deliberately ignored (or accidentally forgot) the fact that they had designed three classes when it came time to start building raid content.

        • The only problem I see is the part where you all have to platform together. Titans and warlocks can glide slowly while the hunter has to double jump or blink

          • I don't see why people talk about tanks and dps. Its been said that its everyone's job to deal damage and tanking requires an ability to hold aggro, from strike missions in the beta it seemed like your going to get targeted at one point. I think raids will strongly depend on support classes but I'm not saying there won't be a place for hunters.

            • As said so by a dev on a video on IGN. Their is no specific DPS, Tank. Every class is just as useful as the next.

                • Of course you need a defensive but of course you need an offensive warrior. It's ignorant not to include all possibilities for a fight

                    • Whilst a sun singer and defender seem very useful for a raid the classes you choose shouldn't matter too much. The whole point of destiny's classes is that there is no "tank" or "adc", the roles are versatile. The compliment your play style not dictate it.

                      • I see the hunter as the last guy standing in the back who makes sure we don't have to restart from checkpoint. Not trying to shun it or anything, that's just the role I would use if I was hunter.

                      • There are many games where a class or two don't have "supportive" skills and they are the one who takes the advantage of the ones who have the support buffs and deal the most damage where it's needed.in fact if you all are supportive then you all aren't at your max dps. That's the trade off. Either spend 8hours trying to do something extremely over safely or take 3hrs while still being safe with people who actually have good damage where it counts

                      • Yeah some people do not understand that DPS is as important as support or tank. Every class and ability backs up your party in one way or another. And yeah HUNTER 4 LIFE because it fits my play style too!

                        If the Titan armor looked better to me, I'd play as the Titan Defender. Hopefully my ability to stay alive by being invisible (Bladedancer) will allow me to more easily revive my teammates / let them respawn on me. Since I -am- that sniping, stealthy type of Hunter, I should be able to fire non-stop, since I'd be in a safe place and not have to stop to take cover. I'd do my best to aim for those that are firing upon my teammates at that time. The Hunter could be a helpful class if used in a certain way, just like the other classes.

                          • 1) There is no comparison between Destiny and a traditional MMO raid. There are no healers, there are no tanks, in this case, every single person is DPS. The only difference would be crowd control, which every single class can do (Blade Dancer, Voidwalker, Striker) Everyone has guns. Everyone shoots. Everyone does damage. Everyone has access to every element through guns, which is going to be the -primary- way to access elements. You don't NEED any class to do anything. 2) Don't expect a third subclass at launch. That will most likely happen somewhere down the road.
