Tips and Details

  • You will be able to perform an air dash after the evasion's jump.
  • The jump is completely optional, unlike the jump caused by Ara's skill, Tempest Dance.
  • Even though the skill can be used during Over Strike, you can't cast it if you don't have enough ECP.
  • This is currently one of only two evasive skills that are able to deal damage, the other being Dritt · Stilett.
  • Currently, this skill has a bug where it may not have a cooldown for unexplained reasons.


  • This skill is based on DFO's shared class skill Backstep, which all characters including Gunner have access to.
  • This is the only evasion skill that uses character's separate gauge instead of MP.

Old Version

  • In the past, Backstep was an Active skill that consisted of Rose dodging backwards while firing whichever weapon she had equipped.
    • This version of the skill was combined with Needle Sobat after the 09/11/2019 KR Patch.
