Burst of Swiftness is a combat maneuver available to monks only that increases a character's Agility bonus by a base amount of 6 points, plus an additional 2 points per rank. It also increases Dexterity bonus by a base amount of 3 points, plus an additional 1 point per rank, for 90 seconds (refreshable).

The cost is 30 stamina with a cooldown period, during which the reactivation cost doubles to 60 stamina.

The main reason to train Burst of Swiftness is because 3 ranks are required for Perfect Self. It is otherwise useful for reduction of the UAC Mstrike roundtime particularly at high levels of Multi Opponent Combat for less than agile races.
