I hate managing my build 😰 (Criticism)

My only worry is how this is going to affect my armor stats and how much it’s going to take to get appropriate sets if it really fucks something up.

Yeah, there's an additional quote on Reddit from a Bungie employee about how they want us to lean more in to specific builds to help us regen abilities faster. To that I say, sounds interesting, except that creating builds in-game right now is like doing a slide puzzle (or worse) every time you want to change something.

Also, won't this exacerbate the gulf between the have and have-nots? If I'm getting my grenade back instantly due to a series of complex interactions between mods, and another player has to wait 2 minutes every time to throw a grenade, that sounds like a frustration point to me.

Not because I dislike carefully crafting my build. I just have no damn way of keeping up with spec'ing my build for the activity in question:

a 100 mod swaps, a few dips back into the vault, and oops that was the time I had to play that night.

They've got a plane's instrument panel level of build tweaking to do and it is getting tedious.
