BLINK! this may be over used and op

I'm not the usual person to say something is over powered but from watching videos it's an immediate way to avoid confrontation with an enemy or dodge an explosion effortlessly. I will use this but this may take away from some of the game, from a sense of other topics most people will want to use blink. However I've never used it before but from watching just a discussion trailer I saw a hunter dodge a missile effortlessly, I can see this being used a lot whenever you're guardian is at low health and you'll just spam the teleport jump to get to safety. I'm assuming that agility will effect the blink distance. I'm excited to see blink and stalker from the hunter blade dancer paired together, being able to blink far away then quickly crouch to not be seen. But I feel blink will be over powered EDIT: Blink is with the hunter and warlock class it replaces jump and doesn't have a cool down Look in the official gameplay experience trailer around the end. I'm not saying to nerf anything

      • [b]I say this on my own account, not all Hunters[/b] LET THE HUNTER GET SOME GOOD STUFF! Jeez, every time i see a post about a Hunters ability everyone wants to nerf it. Jeez guyz the game hasn't came out yet and you already want to nerf him. We have no idea how the other classes can counter this. The Hunters Golden Gun is far easier to avoid than a Nova bomb or Fist of Havok. I have attempted to double jump to avoid both of these supers and failed miserably. Even though i thought i was far out of range. I've escaped a Titan once only to get killed by his aftershock thing. I've evaded a Golden Gun far to many times and then retaliated with my own Golden Gun. We also died faster due to in the beta we could only get our Armor so high ( Armor, not Defense). So lets see how this all plays out. I trust bungie will nerf it if they see fit. I hope not, i like PvE more but will definitely play PvP.

          • Cooldown, don't know how long though but I think it's safe to say those using it will essentially have one use to get away/dodge initially and can't just spam it in the same firefight.

              Blink range isn't as far as you think it is and besides it's rather difficult to spam, as you have to land before you can use it again. Now whether blink with blink strike is over powered is up to debate

                • Has Bungie let you down yet? Are you gonna turn on your tv and rage because a 2 certain character have a good ability? We should just let Bungie do their thing. (Sorry if i sound like a jerk). :)

                  • Blink (I believe) replaces the throwing knife that the Gunslinger uses. This ensures the there will be no spamming, since there will be a cooldown.

                      • Everything that is overused becomes overpowered it's the nature of the beast and most likely there's ways around it so don't bloody worry you will have a decent enough time but that's entirely up to you.

                            You mean like Hunters going invisible or Titans wearing twice as much armor? Heh, I think the Warlocks should be fine. If it is over powered, Bungie could always increase the cool-downs, but this would take away from my hopes of being Nightcrawler with a shotgun.

                                  • At this stage all we can do is wait and see how it will be used. If the history of complaints on this forum are anything to go by I'm sure it won't be too long before we hear about it.
