Hello, just wanted to mention that if you run out of stamina you will get an "Exhausted" effect which reduces your chance to evade and slow recovery.
So, whenever you run, make sure you always stop whne your stamina reaches about 10%.
Secondly, I would like to point out, if you are melee class, you can use BLOCK to "parry" enemy combo sweeps. This is especially useful in situations where you just sweeped through some combos and waiting to recharge or stamina. Blocking at the right time will help you a LOT, just learn to time enemy combo moves etc.
Additional Note: Blocking is instant and will cancel any previous move/attack order.
