Mantra of Evasion was first seen at the July 2011 Press Event, where it was a level 14 skill. Unfortunately, no information about the skill's function was available.
The beta started in September 2011, and Mantra of Evasion became a level 2 skill. The skill system was once again overhauled for the Beta Patch 13 in February 2012, and Mantra of Evasion was classified as a Conviction skill and moved to level 9. For Beta Patch 14, the "Conviction" category was renamed "Mantras" and Mantra of Evasion was bumped up to level 19.
