Surprised that Cory would take evasive reflexes. Isn't Zoro supposed to be more of a straightforward attacker?

If I had to guess, maybe it's to preserve his HP for taking on...boss enemies for lack of a better term. Zoro seems to be built to last as long as possible and then to pile on damage.

I bet he's got something that lets him punish missed melee attacks, as well as something to boost his melee AC. Of course, ranged attacks are different, so he needs different tactics and skills. He's certainly a brutal attacker, but to be maximally effective, he needs to last as long as possible against melee and ranged attacks.

If I had to guess, he probably has those evasive skills for when traps are involved. "I check for traps".

Evasive reflexes only triggers when you would get an AoO, so it's useless on traps. It also doesn't work on ranged attacks made from outside of your melee range

It could be argued that Evasive Reflexes plus Robilar's Gambit lets you take a five foot step every time someone makes a ranged attack roll against you, within your threatened area or not. (Evasive Reflexes triggers "when an opponent gives you a chance to make an attack of opportunity", and Robilar's Gambit doesn't specify that it only works on enemies within your threatened area. However, there's language in the AoO rules which may imply that actions taken outside your threatened area never provoke AoOs... and even if you don't see it that way, it could still be argued that it doesn't work because "provoking" an attack of opportunity doesn't give you a "chance" to make an attack of opportunity unless the enemy is in melee range, so that you could actually make such an attack.)

If your DM allows this combo, it can be very good for either breaking line of sight or approaching an enemy on their full attack, depending on the tactical situation. Best used in conjunction with Sparring Dummy of the Master and/or the Press the Advantage stance.

Well, in this instance, it's pretty clear that the first guy, and 2 of the 6 other guys were in his reach. So in this instance he just needs evasive reflexes

Good thing that's a sturdy table and a primitive gun.

There is a neat difference between random mooks, and mooks with a character sheet, it seems.
