Speed is more than just how fast a ranger can run. It is also their reflexes and reaction time, which affects their initiative in battle and their quickness in dodging in response to a threat. The higher a Ranger's speed, the sooner they can act. It is one of the more important combat attributes and affects Combat speed, Combat initiative, and the Chance to Evade. Action points are also affected by the sum of Strength, Speed, and Intelligence.
