Run Speed

Jump to: navigation, search

Run Speed is the movement speed of your toon when moving, both running and walking. Run speed is generally what is referenced when talking about increases or decreases in your normal movement speed. These effects affect both your running and walking speed, increasing or decreasing both.


Running speed is usually around 6,5 m/s, and all buffs and debuffs refers to this base speed. A hunter using 'Find the Path', getting a 15% speed bonus, will therefore run 6,5 * 1,15 = 7,48 m/s.

A standard mount has a base speed of approximately 10,5 m/s. Most mounts increase your run speed by 62%. Some mounts increases your speed by 32% or 68%.

A starter horse or pony, with an 32% increase in run speed, has a base speed of approximately 8,2 m/s. Some prestige mounts can reach 10,9 m/s. A warhorse traited out for maximum speed can reach 16 m/s, which is slightly faster than the stablemaster horses travel.

Conversion for Americans (note that Europeans use a comma for a decimal point in the numbers above): 6,5 m/s = 14.3 mph; 8,2 m/s = 18.0 mph; 10,5 m/s = 23.1 mph; 10,9 m/s = 24.0 mph; 16 m/s = 35.2 mph.
