There's a set where if you tap block you will dodge everything for 5 seconds, but it has a 20 seconds cooldown. Some people use that as their oh crap button and it makes sense to run away and wait for it to be available again before returning to the fight
it’s not the set. no one runs it,
there is a very long standing bug in pvp, where if you do not have a wired, high-speed connection (any wifi and you’re too slow) the game will make almost all of your ranged attacks dodged, just as you have described.
the only solution is to use melee skills, whirling blades will still hit anything. so yet another “reason” the masters dw meta is all but unavoidable, if you want to be able to compete in pvp.
it’s really awful if you like to play ranged.
i can sit there spamming crushing shock, light weave, shards, mages wrath or whatever and they all get dodged without anyone rolling. [snip] seen people just run around and dodge 6 or 7 times in a row.
