Evasion Skill

When a physical attack is successfully evaded, the attack will miss and have no effect on the player. See Evasion for more information.

Overview

Evasion skill is a combat skill that is a factor in determining a player's ability to evade and completely avoid an incoming physical attack. All jobs have some amount of native evasion skill, which has a chance to increase whenever a player is physically attacked by an enemy with a sufficiently high level (regardless of whether the attack is evaded or not). The activation rate of evasion is determined by the enemy's level and accuracy and the player's Evasion, which is determined by a combination of evasion skill, AGI, and "Evasion" added from gear, abilities, and job traits. Evasion can activate on any attacking enemy regardless of relative positioning and whether or not the player is engaged. When an attack is successfully evaded, it will be completely avoided and none of its effects will proc.
