Evade is an buff effect that causes all Basic Attacks (dealing damage of any type) and Abilities dealing Physical damage to not hit the Evading unit. As a consequence, additional effects of Basic Attacks (Attack modifiers) and such Abilities, will not be applied to an Evading target. Splashing and Bouncing Basic Attacks and talents can hit Evading units as secondary targets, if the secondary (splash) damage is dealt in Spell damage.
