When using the Backlash rune for Mantra of Evasion, what does "a chance" mean?

Successfully dodging an attack has a chance to create a burst of flame dealing X% weapon damage as Fire to all nearby enemies.

for some reason I thought it was 50%, but I can't find the source – z ' May 31 '12 at 3:20
after playing around with it more, I think it triggers 100% of the time, but has a cooldown during which it can't trigger no matter how often you dodge. I'll do some more testing later. – z ' Aug 27 '12 at 19:58
@yx. very interesting. I look forward to hearing more. – user9983 Aug 28 '12 at 2:15

No one (outside of Blizzard) knows currently. There are other abilities that simply say "a chance to..." for other classes too.

Hopefully when the Diablo 3 official game guide on the site gets updated from its current state of "basic" to some sort of "advanced", questions like this will be answered.

I wouldn't count on it, sadly. Blizzard seems obsessed with Security by Obscurity. – Raven Dreamer May 31 '12 at 4:03
