+4 movement speed = +40 movement speed?

I found a sling with +4 movement speed and I see that I'm moving around at about +40 movement speed (I have +1 speed from a elven cloak so I would otherwise move at normal speed). Is +4 movement speed supposed to be so fast?

Its super rare, like extra blows on non-weapons.

So it's intended? Interesting. Thanks for the clarification.

More to the point, is +4 movement speed supposed to be possible at all, let alone on one item? With that and an extra shots bow, you can kill morgoth with no risk at all.
Heck, even +1 movement, +1 extra shot is enough to do it.

As a ranger this would be quite amazing, yes. Unfortunately my sling is pretty weak (x2, +11). Although I suppose if I brought 400 shots to the fight it could be done?

This +4 movement speed is pretty bonkers. One interesting thing about it is it reduces my turn count (and thus extends all buffs' duration while I'm moving). I'm doing like 1 or 2 game turns per move. It also allows me to wield an aggravating weapon with very good damage and confusion protection. The ability to just walk away from things instead of ?phasing is pretty amazing, too.
