  • Sprint
  • Movement speed increased by 70%.
  • Duration: 8 seconds
Sometimes you just have to get away from it all.[1]

Sprint is a level 26 rogue ability ability that boosts the rogue's run speed by 70% for 8 seconds.


  • For PvP, you may wish to save sprint mostly for chasing down your fleeing enemies, especially once you get [Blind] and [Vanish].
  • In PvE, sprint provides a very useful "get out of jail free" card.
  • Ostensibly a defensive ability, Sprint can also be used to return to the boss as quickly as possible, thereby maximizing time on boss and, in turn, DPS.
  • The Sprint functionality is identical to the effects of the  [Swiftness Potion] created with the Alchemy skill, except the potion will break stealth.
  • Use Sprint to quickly close the distance on enemies that are trying to snare you or otherwise keep their distance. Especially useful against hunters and mages who've just blinked away.
