Nope. "To War" from the same game (Destiny)

Gotta admit that Battuta disagreeing with me put me on the backfoot and makes me question my credentials. Schooly at least identified that the first use isn't as bad as the second, but I stand by my judgment. You say "were it so easy" when someone makes a difficult task sound easy. Neither Johnson nor Hood did.

I've actually heard it used as an equivalent of 'easier said than done' - as in 'were it so easy to do as to say'. Not saying that you have to accept that this is a valid use of the phrase, but just wanted to put out there that it's definitely been used that way.

This is always how I interpreted it.
