Speed swim was a simple spell that improved a creature's swimming ability.[1]


This spell increased ability and speed while swimming. The creature's swimming speed was the same as if they were running on dry land. The spell only functioned if swimming in a single direction. The targeted creature had to be within 25 feet (7.6 meters) of the caster while the spell was cast. This range increased as the caster's skill level grew.[1]


In addition to verbal and somatic components, the spell required a focus: a small paddle made from wood.[1]
