Odd question: Speed stacking.
Maxes out with the highest available ie 33% swiftness.
For QC http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Rune_of_Speed is the fastest you can run with the full set. To add to that point since swiftness stack with nothing and on many builds we have access to perma swiftness passive speed boost are usually a waist.
Due to http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Speedy_Kits engineer is the class with the easiest access to swiftness so you wont gain much.

If you’re interested in high-mobility, elementalist does very well at that. Elementalist, especially D/D elementalists, are second only to thieves when it comes to mobility.
Drat. Alrighty, thanks for the answers, y’all.
33% swiftness, but duration doesn’t end. However the timer stops at a minute, so if you hover your mouse over the swiftness boon icon to see how much time is left it’ll cap at 1m, even if you have over a minute of swiftness… when I was learning boon stacking and had way too much towards boon duration I remember running the zerg in straits of devastation and looking down and seeing that 1m timer for like 20 seconds or so, so you can stack much longer than a minute, but it wont register.
@timebomb perhaps you’re right, but I’ve never been outrun by a thief
it doesn’t cap at 1min as SlimGenre says. I’ve manege to get to 3min and then my friend was back so we could continue the quest. so it could potentially be limitless but i think there is a cap.
no, I didn’t say it caps at 1m. I said when you hover your mouse over the icon it will only show 1m, even if you have over a minute of swiftness.
i probably wasn’t clear, apologies
Ele speed generally does not come from swiftness.
Swiftness is more useful for travel from point to point but is pretty slow in comparison to abilities with integral movement.
ride the lightning and whatnot far exceed swiftness speed for burst mobility around targets.
fiery great sword is also a useful point to point travel mechanism.
much like warrior great sword.
