    Thanks. From the look of things, it would be hard to be a dodge tank with only 3 dodges like that.

    Maybe as you level your number of dodges increases as well?

    I imagine it'll be set at two or three, and there may be a tank perk for an extra one or two.

    Maybe from milestones or skills. It's kind of a core mechanic though. Toying with it would have very dramatic effects. It would be like adding a triple jump.

    From the video, it looks as if the dodge charges regenerate fairly quickly. I think it might come down to "knowing the fight" in order to know what telegraphs need to be dodged out of in order to avoid and which ones you can simply move out of. We haven't seen a difficult encounter yet, so who knows.

    Very true! We've really only seen low level content as far as I'm aware!

    Right, only low level content has been revealed to my knowledge. So it's hard to say how many dodges you will get or how quickly the dodges will regenerate.

    Unlike gear or other skills, dodging will probably be balanced around both PvP AND PvE, so I imagine it won't be always available to us.
