Dodge is a chance to avoid incoming damage and negative effects, provided from the Acrobatics keystone, its subsequent Acrobatics Improvement nodes, and certain unique items. It is rolled separately from Evasion, and is rolled before Block. The Chance to Dodge is a pseudo-random roll made per attack, and not entropy-based like Evasion. Dodge is capped at 75%.

Dodge is not connected to the attackers accuracy, and so chance to dodge is unaffected by evasion-related mechanics such as Blind, Resolute Technique or Unwavering Stance.
