    Default speed builds

    what is the fastest 8th level character you can make, assuming a standard human for race?

    I've got Druid 3/ Barbarian 3/ Forest Reeve 2 for 60 ft a round, itemless. I'm sure there someone who can make something even more interesting.

    no crazy slight of hand tricks or total flaws in the game that wouldn't hold water.

    barb-1/Monk-3/Sorc-1/Scout-3. 90 foot speed with Expeditious Retreat cast.


    I'm much too lazy to think up a better build than this at the moment.

    The trait "quick" gives you +10, but you get -1 HP per lvl

    Polymorph into Cheetah, go to town? To be fair, Discharging Footsteps no longer works as well so that doesn't allow you to circle the globe multiple times in a round. Either way, many thousands of feet.

    EDIT: Dug out this. Probably wins.

    Doesn't work; Monk is enchantment bonus, Scout is enchantment bonus, Exp. Ret. is Enchantment Bonus. Only thing that stacks here is the Barbarian movement speed, so 70'.

    Do not forget the blade dancer from Oriental Adventures. Triples your base move speed over 10 levels.
