Evade Against Burn

Layla maxed out has the ability to evade. I however noticed against a fire hero, after a successful evasion, she still falls victim to burn damage. I’ve been cheated out of raid victories because of this. If she’s able to evade attacks, successfully does such, then why is she still taking burn damage?

Because the evade only works against direct damage. DoT (damage over time) like burn, poison etc, and status ailments like blind, mana block etc cannot be evaded. That’s how the rogue talent works.

She can only evade special offensive attacks and not status ailments.

The talent says “4% chance to dodge DIRECT damage from offensive special skills.”. (emphasis mine) The burn damage is not direct damage, so it is not evaded.
