Speed Shrine

The Speed Shrine is one of the new class of Super Shrines added in Reaper of Souls.

This shrine provides a 30 second buff that raises a character to their maximum run speed. How much of a bonus this provides depends on the character's equipment and skills, but it is generally a much larger boost than that provided by a Fleeting Shrine.

Blizzcon 2013 Debut[edit | edit source]

The Speed Shrine was first seen in the RoS demo at Blizzcon 2013 and was detailed in an report on Diablo.IncGamers.com[1]:

The Speed Shrine boosts your character to “your maximum run speed” for 30 seconds. That made a huge difference to the RoS demo characters who did not have faster run equipment, but it’s hard to say how much diff it would make for a high level character who already had 24% MS. The effect did *not* display in my character stats when I opened the Inventory and viewed the Details pane, so I’m not sure exactly how much speed it was adding. (I think that’s just a display bug since it’s a brand new feature.)
It was a considerably larger boost than I got from the current Fleeting Shrine, but it’s hard to say just how fast I was going when playing in a solo game with a lvl 33 character without any Movement Speed gear on.

Shrines in Diablo III[edit | edit source]

Shrines are randomly-located, randomly-spawned objects that characters can click to receive temporary buffs. Shrine effects pass to all players in the area when they are first triggered. All shrine benefits last for 120 seconds, and characters can benefit from multiple different shrines at once. Shrine bonuses and durations do not stack, and hitting a second shrine of the same type will simply reset the time to the full two minute duration.
