Vanguard

Jump to: navigation, search

Vanguard is a rune effect in Frenzy, a Fury-generating Barbarian skill.

This rune effect grants 15% increased movement speed while Frenzy is charged up. There is no stacking with this one; it's 15% faster with 1-5 stacks of Frenzy. Fans of the skill from Diablo II will appreciate this bonus, since the default skill in D2 granted faster attack speed and movement speed. The added footspeed can make it easier for the Barbarian to rush to another mob and keep hitting before Frenzy resets, but the duration is only as long as the Frenzy, or not very long at all.
