this is simply not true whatsoever. you arent getting this simple concept... on paper, its a very easy concept to move out of a swing, but you dont realize how quick of a reaction time you need to be dodging these swings.
also, there are monsters where this isnt a problem, but there are other monsters where this is a problem. zombies and skellys and scavengers have this problem. grotesques for instance dont. you can dodge every one of their attacks pretty well in patch 16, for the record. does this make them the easiest monsters in the game? no
is it a get out of jail free card? no, you need to make a conscious decision, and be aware of whats happening, and have a quick enough reaction to move out of the way
i dont see how you dont see how this is a problem.
if for instance, if arrows had this problem, where if you moved out of the way, but they still hit when they miss you by 10 feet, would you feel that this was OK? do you feel that dodging arrows is a game breaking mechanic, or a get out of jail free card?
