Deflection is a avoidance skill only used by Brawlers. It gives you a chance to avert a physical attack. This raises your deflection avoidance roll (not different from dodging other than generally being better to raise because it runs off different diminishing returns) chance.
In oder to raise the skill you need to get hit by melee weapons.
