Dodge

Not to be confused with Evasion.

Dodge is a layer of defence that provides a chance to prevent damaging hits.

Mechanics

Whether a character dodges a hit is determined by their chance to dodge, which is capped at 75%. Dodge is rolled randomly each time the character would be hit. On a successful dodge, the character does not take the hit. For this reason, dodge is handled before block and avoidance, both of which provide a chance to mitigate the damage of hits rather than preventing them outright. Dodge is not affected by the enemy's accuracy.

Sources of dodge

The only source of dodge is the Acrobatics keystone, which provides a chance to dodge spell hits by converting spell suppression into spell dodge.
