Movement Speed denotes the speed that a character is normally allowed to walk or run. Most normal monsters will also move at this speed, some exceptions being Tigers, Raptors, Wyverns, Puks, Sabotenders, and Colibri which can move faster; and even some that move slower such as Marids and Wamouracampa. Monsters typically move slower than normal when they are passive, and will only start to move at their maximum speed once they have become aggressive to a player.

Generally, standard Movement Speed is referred to as "100%" (equivalent to 4 yalms per second), which is the fastest a player can run under normal circumstances. A boost of +100% to Movement Speed essentially doubles the rate at which a character can run. Movement Speed in itself cannot be dropped to 0%; however, the status effect Bind can temporarily prevent movement.

Various pieces of equipment and certain spells/abilities can affect this speed. The spells Haste and Slow do not affect movement speed; they only affect weapon delay and magic recast timers.

Notes

There are six different movement speed modifying status effects: Chocobo, Flee, Weight, Mazurka, Quickening, and Bolter's Roll.

  • The Chocobo status effect is only in effect when riding a chocobo and will override all other forms of movement speed effects, but it will not remove them.
  • Flee will overwrite some forms of Weight and all forms of Quickening.
  • Using Sprinter's Shoes while under the effect of Flee will have no effect.
  • Quickening will take priority over Mazurka, but it will not remove the effect.
  • Quickening and Mazurka both stack with Weight.
  • Movement speed modifying equipment will stack with all forms of movement speed effects, other than Chocobo and Cheer.
  • Boosts to movement from multiple pieces of equipment will not stack with each other. The largest boost is the one the player will receive.
  • However, movement speed decrease from equipment will stack.
  • Atmas with movement speed only work inside Abyssea zones, and only if that particular Atma is set with a Lunar Abyssite.

Natural movement speed is 100%. All movement speed modifying gear will add/subtract a number to/from that.

  • Movement speed is capped at 200%. Low cap is 0% (Bind).
  • Weight inflicted from the spell Gravity: -50% Movement Speed
  • Weight inflicted from other abilities: -??% Movement Speed, varying by ability.
  • Resting in Signet areas while Swift Shoes is active will give a Quickening effect of variable strength, depending on duration of the resting period. See Swift Shoes for details.
  • Sprinter's Shoes will give a Quickening effect of +12.5%.
