Rogue Speed Runner

This is a build that is focused on the Primalist who wants to run very fast. Who needs damage, healing or anything else? Just run! This is not a soul build that is designed for leveling, dungeons, raiding or even player versus player (PVP). This is a spec designed to obtain the fastest possible run speed.
