Talk:Evade

Most of the info in this article does not relate to Evasion (an E/B/P phenomenon) so much as Dodge DS, which is already covered in the article on Dodging. If nobody objects, in a few days I'll rewrite this article to be more appropriate and less confusing. Dan 13:23, 31 March 2008 (EDT)

Meh. I felt that evade/dodge were just as much a part of the DS formula as it is the evade/block/parry chances... each provide a chance to outright avoid an attack in addition to providing DS. Dodging is just the name of the skill that provides Evade DS in addition to the ability to evade an attack. Just like Shield Use does for Blocking and the various weapon skills do for Parrying. Hence, the Dodge DS formula is here. Besides, not a whole lot of math is given on the 'outright avoidance' of an attack. In other words: I feel that it'd probably be best to leave the stuff here so that it is covered in both the Evade article and the Dodging article. In fact, Dodging should note that Evade is the primary article for this information since Dodging is a skill, not a system. - Andy talk 17:36, 1 April 2008 (EDT)
