Avoid is an Amazon Skill in Diablo 2. Avoid is part of the Passive and Magic Skills Tree and requires level 12 to be unlocked. Skills usually define a character's playstyle and are divided by Class and Skill Tree. Some Skills have synergies, which provide benefits to other skills on the same Skill Tree.
This ability hones the natural defensive ability of an Amazon. If she stands still, she can predict incoming missile attacks and elude them before they reach her. Most Amazon people can do this if all of their thoughts to the task, but only a warrior trained in this skill can do this even whilst caught unaware.
- Passive Effect: You have a chance to dodge enemy missiles when attacking or stading still.
- Cast Delay: None
- Avoid will work while attacking.
