Evade

From Diablo 4 Wiki

Evade allows all classes to swiftly move and evade an attack with the push of a button. This function is available right from level 1 of a character. It is not to be confused with Dodge which is a passive ability of all classes that is more subtle but can also be boosted.

Evade is indicated by a small foot icon next to the resource globe. In the example below it is bound to the spacebar key. You can bind it to any key you wish.

Evade

Evade has a cooldown of 5 seconds but this can be reduced with skills and items and in some cases increased in return for other benefits.

Gear that helps Evade

Rare, Legendary and Unique boots are the main piece of gear that comes with benefits to Evade. They can be found with the following Affixes:

  • +2 Max Evade Charges (can be increased by Upgrading at the Blacksmith)
  • Attacks reduce Evade's Cooldown by 0.8 seconds
  • Evade Grants +50% Movement Speed for 1 second

Regular Cooldown stats such as "10% Cooldown Reduction" do not apply to Evade.

Evade and Obstacles

Evade does not allow players to pass through objects or obstacles they encounter. It is specifically a dodge mechanic.
