(sometimes abbreviated as movespeed or MS) is the speed at which a unit can move. Movement speed can never be lower than 100, and never greater than 522. The only exceptions are Bloodseeker can go above 522 with
, and Faceless Void who has a movement speed of 1000 inside his Chronosphere. Every unit has a base movement speed, but it can be altered by abilities and items.
Movement speed is expressed in units per second.
However, dissimilar items' movement speed bonuses will stack.
Flat movement speed bonuses are those granted by all kinds of boots and by Eul's Scepter of Divinity. Percentage movement speed buffs are those provided by Yasha-derived items, as well as other items (e.g. Mask of Madness, Eye of Skadi) and abilities (e.g. Empowering Haste, Poison Sting).
Below is a comparison of the movement speeds of all Heroes.
