Tips and Details

  • At 5 buff stacks, Elsword will emit red light and lightning from his body.
    • When he stops running, the buff is indicated by a zapping effect.
  • This passive still applies while in a skill freeze frame.
  • To sustain the buff midcombo, you would need to run for about 1 second. This is impractical, but doable with some tools such as Maelstrom Rage, or if you can delay the opponent with either a long enough skill freeze or hitstun.


  • As of April 2016 (NA), the movement speed part of the skill seems bugged, seeing as even with very low sockets (13% on the stat) there was no visible difference at all. The other parts apply normally however.
  • Before Evolution 2, some factors sustained the buff.
