What ability in Splatoon do you find the most useful?

Personally, I think Stealth Jump is the most useful of them. It hides your Super Jump location so enemies can't sit there and camp while they wait for you to spawn in said location. While it does make your jump slower, usually I only jump from my spawn point where nobody can kill me. It does a lot more good than bad. :p

Ink Resistance Up and Swim Speed Up. I will stress swim speed up because it helps just about every weapon perform at a higher level (although the normal e-liters/scope versions shouldn't really run that, unless you want the equivalent of one main ability in case it is rainmaker and you need to pick it up). Nevertheless, swim speed up gets you out of sticky situations, allows you to approach situations better, and many other things you can experiment with yourself. It helps so much in rainmaker that the rainmaker is practically invincible to any shooter that is almost at its max range trying to kill the rainmaker. I will say that stealth jump has its advantages and disadvantages, usually depending on how long the course (as well as obstacles that may increase the amount of time required to advance to mid) is and what weapon you are using. If you are a dynamo, USE STEALTH JUMP. It's not even funny how you will obliterate the competition when you sneak in and kill them almost instantly.

I don't really use the abilities just because I didn't want to waste my time getting them and actually play the game. Instead the gear I use I picked it for just looking good. Wish you could just do that and then just pick and pay for which abilities you want.

Unfortunately just about everyone is using the disgusting Quick Respawn + Stealth Jump meta now, with any weapon. I hate that is the route we've gone down.
