Should i be worried or concerned if i charge / leap INTO a room full of monsters or should i never leave my soft underbelly (behind) exposed?

As a wizard, my behind is exposed quite a bit (not literally) whenever tough enemies try to come near – Alok May 29 '12 at 5:38

Just checked it in-game, stood in a corner and let mobs hit my back. I dodged and blocked attacks even though I was with my back to them. Now I dont know if the chance to block/dodge gets reduced, but certainly not to zero.

Added images.

Dodging dodging

Blocking blocking

Additionally, you can still dodge even when you are stunned or feared. – MatsT May 29 '12 at 13:04
You also appear to be able to dodge/block while moving – kalina Jun 7 '12 at 11:11
Actually, my experience tells me, you have a higher chance to dodge while moving. Don't know if the same applies to blocking. – DrFish Jul 17 '12 at 13:56
