Counterpoint: grapples and "warmind" cells (Destiny)

Other than the (probably rare) times where you grapple to something that’s already moving, the grapple seems marginally more mobile than what we already have with our regular movement. Obviously we haven’t had the chance to use it, yet, but I haven’t seen anything that makes me think the grapple is worth giving up a grenade for.

Also comes back to basic game design. You can not make areas where Grapple is your only option, unless you force the ability on players (taking away its organic usefulness). So absolutely anywhere that this is not the case, Eager Edge, Stompees, Heat Rises, Rampants, Worldline, Shatterskating, etc. All do the same thing, if not better. Especially in a game where Aerial Efficiency makes the grapple a bad idea to begin with.

And yeah, Warmind cells being removed to add value to the Strand balls? Lol. La mayo.
Ruinous Effigy is trying hard not to draw attention to itself now.
