Swiftness’s Movement Speed Effect
Swiftness is an incredibly handy Trait that ranks high on the QoL meter, as the extra run speed will make it significantly easier to keep up with your team mates in co-op, dodge boss attacks with less rolling, or just get hit by weapons fire less cause you can move out of the way quicker. One of the most noticeable effects you can max out, especially since by the time you’ll have found it, you’d likely have spent a considerable amount of time playing the game.
While Swiftness gives a 15% increase in distance covered before you need to recharge Stamina on it’s own, the combined effects with World Walker will give you +45% longer runs before needing a rest, before taking any flat Stamina value bonuses into account (like from Endurance).
How to Find the Swiftness Trait
In Yaesha there are several places you can find sets of 5 bells, that can be played by shooting them, in different patterns to give different rewards. In this particular case, to unlock Swiftness, when you find one of these bells you will need to play the Song of the Guardian tune.
Shoot the bells in this order: 1 – 1 – 3 – 4 | 1 – 1 – 3 – 2
There are multiple locations you can find these bells and Swiftness can be unlocked at any of these locations. Also once you have all the rewards, it is still worth shooting the bells to make the tune when you find them again, as you will get the quest reward XP and some scrap for doing so. Previously I had mentioned you can only get one reward, this is incorrect, you can actually play more than one tune as long as they both apply to the area, and receive both rewards. Just make sure to do them before leaving the dungeon, as leaving then coming back seems to be what removes the option to get a second reward.
