  • Burst of Speed
  • Movement speed increased by 70%.
  • Duration: 4 seconds

Burst of Speed is a talented rogue ability, available at level 60.

Tips and tactics

  • It is essentially an on-demand version of [Sprint], making it very attractive to rogues who are soloing old content (such as Molten Core) that have no outdoor areas for mounting up.
  • Not recommended for current raiding tiers due to the other level 60 talents being better suited for such content.
