Movement speed (sometimes abbreviated as movespeed or MS) is the speed at which a unit can move. Movement speed can never be lower than 100, and is usually capped at 522. Some heroes have abilities that allow them to move above 522 movement speed. Every unit has a base movement speed, but it can be altered by abilities and items.

Movement speed is expressed in units per second.

Stacking[edit | edit source]

Similar items' movement speed bonuses will not stack (with the exception of Eul's Scepter of Divinity icon.png Eul's Scepter of Divinity):

Different items' movement speed bonuses will stack.

Formula[edit | edit source]

movement speed = (base movement speed + flat movement speed bonuses) × (1 + sum of percentage movement speed bonuses and slows)

Flat movement speed bonuses are fixed amounts granted by all kinds of boots and other items. Percentage movement speed buffs are certain buffs that make a hero move faster depending on their current movement speed, and are granted by some abilities as well as items.

Abilities that increase movement speed[edit | edit source]

Items that increase movement speed[edit | edit source]

Other Items with Passive Bonuses[edit | edit source]

Haste[edit | edit source]

A haste sets the affected unit's minimum movement speed to a certain value. This means during its effect, a unit's movement speed can not go below that value. So when a unit has more movement speed than the set value (e.g. Bloodseeker icon.png Bloodseeker with his Thirst icon.png Thirst), slow effects won't bring it below the value set by the haste.
