Evade is a Amazon Skill in Diablo II.


A warrior skilled in Dodge and Avoid may eventually learn this additional ability. Once an Amazon has sharpened her defensive concentration to this level, she will eventually be able to dodge blows and other attacks while moving. This skill can also help keep the Amazon from harm as she moves out of the way of an exploding siege engine or avoids the wrath of an enraged Sorceress!

General InformationEdit

This ability allows the Amazon to avoid an attack (with some chance) while moving. It affects both melee and ranged hits.

This ability doesn't make Dodge and Avoid obsolete, as Evade only works while moving, while Dodge and Avoid only work when stationary.

Any points put into Evade also affect Valkyrie (but not Decoy). Points received from equipment do not improve Valkyries.


  • Gives synergy to:
    • Valkyrie: 100% effect transferred to the Valkyrie summon
  • Receives synergy from: None
