Escape skills refer to abilities in Diablo III that allow characters to survive experiences that would have been fatal without that skill. "Escape" can apply to skills that physically move the player out of harm's way or from an attacker's clutches such as with Jailer or Waller or momentarily protects them from harm so they can attempt to kill their attacker first. They are 'panic buttons' in effect and every class has them.
DiabloWiki is a great resource for everyone, and is built by members of the Diablo community adding small or big contributions. Time or English skills are not constraints that should keep you from signing up to the project, as some members might have plenty of time but using English as a second language, and others have skills but only time to correct grammar!
Your account will work on both the Diablo 2 and Diablo 3 wikis here at DiabloWiki, if you sign up on one of them. If you have an account on any other Diablo site, such as Diablo: IncGamers, you will not automatically be able to use that username; you will have to sign up for DiabloWiki separately.
When you have signed up, this is how you get help:
Our homegrown Help section includes almost anything you would like to know.
The Wiki Markup page is great if it's a specific piece of "wiki code" you need.
