Gameplay Notes[]

The spell, if cast on someone with the spell Haste on them already, cannot be affected and the spell does nothing. However, it can affect people who use hasted items, or other spells and abilities which provide movement speed increases or haste effects.

It is a movement spell, and will help rogues who use stealth to get into good positions to use sneak attacks, and allows a fighter-based character to rush up to mages and archers before they fire too many spells.

The low level requirement means it can easily be put on a scroll, wand or rod and used by people with low Use magic device skills.

There is, however, no bonus apart from movement speed, and it is for a single round per level meaning it is near useless at level 1. Only ever use this spell at a reasonably higher level, like 3 or 4. If you use it at level 1, you get only 6 seconds of speed increase, but you took 3 seconds to cast the spell!
