Movement speed is greatly increased. Maximum duration: 10s

— In-game description

Superspeed is an effect that provides a 100% increase to forward movement speed while in combat. Outside of combat, it provides close to the same 33% increase to movement speed as the boon Swiftness. Like all movement speed boosts, it does not affect backpedaling or strafing movement. Additional applications of superspeed stack in duration for up to 10 seconds. Other effects that provide a bonus to movement speed (e.g. Swiftness, certain traits, and signet skills) do not stack with Superspeed; only the highest increase in speed will be applied.

Superspeed is not a boon, and thus does not benefit neither from attributes Concentration and Boon Duration nor from various skills, traits and upgrade components that affect boons in general. While Superspeed does not ignore movement-impairing conditions Chilled and Crippled, it still provides a substantial movement bonus: 134% and 150% speed increase, respectively, compared to 200% when unrestricted. Uniquely, Superspeed can be granted to many friendly NPCs that are otherwise unaffected by giving them Swiftness, for example, NPCs participating in dynamic events in the PvE game mode or Siege Golems in the WvW mode.
