Run Speed Comparison

From Project 1999 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

There are various methods in Everquest Project 1999 to increase the running speed of your character.

Runspeed Comparison.jpg

Spirit of Wolf

Ask your friendly neighbourhood Druid, Ranger or Shaman for a Spirit of Wolf buff.
This buff scales in speed by the level of the character casting the spell.

Spirit of Wolf

1 : Increase Movement Speed by 34% (L9) to 55% (L50)

Scale of Wolf

1 : Increase Movement Speed by 57% (L24) to 70% (L50)

Caution: Attacking a creature, or casting a spell will cause the Scale of Wolf buff to drop and you will lose the movement speed increase.

Spirit of Cheetah

1 : Increase Movement Speed by 99% (L24) to 115% (L40)

Spirit of Cheetah can be cast in half a second, but the buff lasts for only 48 secs - and cannot be recast for another 10 minutes - good for quick fast dashes.

Wolf Form

If your class is a Druid and Ranger you can use the Wolf Form line of spells to turn your character into a wolf.
The later Wolf form spells have increased run speed improvements over Spirit of Wolf

Wolf Form

2 : Increase Movement Speed by 42% (L24) to 55% (L50)

Greater Wolf Form

2 : Increase Movement Speed by 52% (L34) to 60% (L50)

Form of the Great Wolf

Form of the Howler

2 : Increase Movement Speed by 62% (L54) to 65% (L60)

Form of the Hunter

2 : Increase Movement Speed by 70% (L60)


If you are not a Druid or Ranger you can group with a druid to receive the following wolf form buffs.

Caution: Some NPCs that would normally like you may hate wolves and con threatening or kill on sight. And some NPCs that would normally be kill on sight will ignore you in wolf form see: Brownies

Bard Songs

At the high levels 50+ Bard songs are the fastest way to get around, even more so when the bard has a high quality drum. From Level 5 bards get Selo's Accelerando, this song scales all the way up to level 50 and has no direct replacement.

This buff lasts only 18 seconds, however bards can sing songs that whilst running and can keep the buff persistently for group members in their range. The Bard usually runs at the back of the group so that if people run out of range of the song they can be picked up again when the bard catches up.

At level 51 Bards get the Travel Song Selo's Song of Travel.
This song is the same speed as the level 5 song Selo's Accelerando, but adds 3 extra buffs.

  • See-Invisibility
  • Invisibility
  • Levitation.

Please note: Selo's line of songs are limited to 2.55x runspeed with Selos drums and 2.56x runspeed with drums of the beast.

Selo's Song of Travel (Singing)

1 : Increase Movement Speed by 20% (L5) to 65% (L50)
WarningIcon.png
Caution: If you are attacked (by a creature that has see-invisibility) the effect will be cancelled.
If you run out of range of the bard for longer than the remaining duration of the buff the effect will be cancelled.
If the song cancels whilst you are at a great height (for example running from the port area to Karnor's Castle in Dreadlands) you will likely fall to your death.

Items

Some items have run speed modification buffs

Mounts

There are no mounts or vehicles on Everquest Project 1999.

Indoors

Run speed modifiers cannot be used in zones that are tagged "indoors".

You can however cast them before you zone in, and the buff will persist its normal duration but you will have to leave the zone to reapply the buff.
