Drifting Shadow


From Diablo Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Drifting Shadow is a rune effect in Strafe, a Hatred-spending Demon Hunter skill.

This rune effect increases the Demon Hunter's movement skill while using Strafe. With this rune the Demon Hunter can move at her normal speed while Strafing. This is a fairly minor improvement; the movement speed is noticeable, but as Strafe can only be used in very brief bursts before all Hatred is exhausted, how fast the character moves while using it is largely irrelevant.
