There are two distinct Speed statistics: Speed w.png Weapon Speed refers to how long it takes to hit an enemy with a weapon; Speed.png Player Speed refers to how fast the player moves. Each can be affected in a variety of ways.

Speed.png Player Speed

The player's base speed is:

  • 2 when walking
  • 5 when running.
  • 6.6 when riding a Horse.

A variety of positive and negative Buffs can change the player speed, as detailed under Food and Drink and Buffs. In theory, five speed-related buffs could be simultaneously active, three positive (maximum +4 Speed) and two negative (minimum -5 Speed).

Finally, speed is also affected by some terrains, but not when riding a horse.

Although terrain and/or debuffs may decrease a player speed, the speed is never decreased below 1.

Food and Drink

The following foods and drinks increase Player Speed. Only one drink-derived buff and one food-derived buff can be active at a given time, so +2 Speed is only possible if the +1 Speed from a drink (Coffee and Triple Shot Espresso) be stacked with the +1 Speed from one of the food items.

Coffee is available at The Stardrop Saloon every day for Gold.png300g, but the other dishes may appear only randomly on Gus' menu.

Three types of terrain can alter the player's speed, but only if the player is not riding a horse.

  • Flooring has a +0.1 Speed boost, but only when located outside on The Farm.
  • Grass has a -1 Speed penalty.
  • Crops have a -1 Speed penalty, but only if the player is running. Seeds do not count as crops.
