Quickening is a skill rune effect in the Monk's Fists of Thunder combo skill.

Quickening is enabled at level 42, and increases the Monk's Spirit generation by enabling a gain of 15 Spirit with every Critical Hit landed while using this attack. The basic attack's effectiveness is not changed by this rune effect; just the Spirit generated by it. This effect will obviously become more effective for Monks with higher than normal critical hit %.
