Movement speed is greatly increased. Maximum duration: 10s

— In-game description

Superspeed is an effect that provides a 100% increase to movement speed. Other effects that provide a bonus to movement speed (e.g. Swiftness, certain traits and signets) do not stack with superspeed; only the highest increase in movement speed will be applied. Superspeed stacks in duration, up to 10 seconds.

  • Does not grant any movement speed increase while backpedaling or strafing.
  • Only provides the 100% increase to movement speed while in combat. Outside of combat it provides close to the same 33% increase to movement speed as Swiftness.
  • Does not ignore chill and cripple movement slowing effects, but counteracts them somewhat (providing 134% or 150% speed instead of 200%).
  • Superspeed is not a boon, and this does not benefit from Concentration/Boon Duration, or anything else that specifically affects boons.
  • Affects Siege Golem in World vs World and many friendly NPCs in open world that are otherwise unaffected by giving them swiftness.
