Woven Stride Question

When the trait says 20% effectiveness increase for swiftness, what exactly does that mean?
Does that mean swiftness acts as a 53% movement increase?

    Your switfness is 40% instead of 33%. I think that 7% adds up to 20% increase.
    Although, all the tooltips for skills that give switmess say 40%, the boons continues to show 33%. I'm a little confused about that.

    That would not surprise me it never did feel like it was doing any thing all though 7% realty is not that big of a different so it may just be that hard to tell. How did you test it?

    How recent is this? I remember being faster than other classes when we both had swiftness, I would over time in WvW get further and further ahead but it’s been a month since I actually played Weaver in WvW with another person who had to run with swiftness (no movement skills) who wasn’t weaver.

    The only real test i can images if using the +40% MS effect from desert bl with woven straids in combat as 33% is the max speed outside of combat. See if they both keep up or time from point A to B.

    I must say the 40% MS effect from that bl is nice but it makes woven strides all the weaker to run sadly. It realty needs to effect super speed and be a clear on swiftness / super speed application much like reg clear works even if its self only.

    first of all the switness shown above the utility " boon panel" shows swiftness to give 33% movement speed
    second the way i tested it is i applied a min of swift on myself and i let my other friend " guard " apply swiftness on him self "no overlap" then we had a race and the way i was 100% sure that its not working is the delta wouldnt change it kept constant the distance between me and the guard never changed at all

  • I assume the ele would only benefit a bit if in combat do to the speed limitation cap out of combat. PS the lack of moment speed with Sword weaver makes you eat lots of dust bunnies from other profession save the Scourge. Omg we can never have perm 33% movement speed scourge with movement skill like warrior.

    Sword Weavers are decent 1v1 vs non POF metas in wvw. Sadly sword still has low packet damage, very small range and is easy to read. Good luck catching holo, mirage, or firebrand if fleeing from battle. You will never catch the others. And chill from Reapers gibs you so hard.
