How Fast can one run?

By run, I mean movement speed. Is there a limit to how fast a character can run ?

For fun, I have created a paladin named Speed_Thief (lvl 32) on USEast. With the vigor aura, right now he can make some serious tracks (and with Zeal, I just have to laugh when I come screaming up to a pile of monsters, destroy them, and leave in mere seconds). I have four faster walk/run charms, 3%, 5%, 7%, 7% (I may have gotten a 5th charm, but I can't remember and I'm at work), along with Sigon's boots (20%) and Peasent Crown (15%).

If there is a limit, can you tell me what it is? Otherwise, in a few levels, I'm throwing on a Trang armor and a Mav belt that I have on another character :)

Thanks in advance.

I liked the idea of seeing how fast one could run/walk. So I started a new character, assassin using burst of speed and all the gear I can get to increase it. Been fun so far but I'm sure she'll be horrible in Hell. Have to wait and see.

Also try a Shape Shifting Druid using Feral Rage. At slvl 20 Feral Rage gives 55% faster run/walk (after charge-up), this before any speed increases from items.

Thanks for the info!

My inspiration comes from seeing monsters that Extra Fast. I think, man I wish I could move that fast.

Over the weekend I found Sander's boots which give 40% frw.

I'll be researching items to combine to have the fastest run/walk possible today.

On a side note, I entered a game over the weekend called "Come LVL w me"

So I enter with my level 33 Speed Pally, and a level 45 druid is waiting by the gates in NM Act 1. As soon as I step out, he goes hostile. I said HAH! Good luck catching me. He tried, and failed miserably :D

If you want to know the fastest character possible, then the Paladin is your answer. Charge and Vigor together beat anything. As far as just faster running without a second skill, I believe Assasins can run the fastest with Burst of Speed. I usually max Bof after I get all my trap synergies down on my trapsins. Add a bunch of +3 faster r/w small charms and it's incredible.

If you wanted a character that is fast as hell but still effective just go for a fully synergized Hammerdin, because one of their synergies is Vigor, and Charge only needs one point which you need to spend for Holy Shield anyways.
