Tips & Tricks


This judgement is very useful to stop runners, especially in tight areas such as in the Scarlet Monastery.


The movement speed limit of the judged player is not considered a movement impairing effect, meaning acts such as shape shifting and Hand of Freedom will not remove it. This prevents a player from going above their normal run speed. Thus, for instance, a Druid who is affected by the Judgement will not go any faster than the normal run speed if they shift into Travel Form, a Rogue who uses Sprint will receive no speed boost, and any player riding a mount will receive no speed bonus from doing so.
