Elusivity is a PvP-only protective measure that makes attacks less likely to hit. It serves the same role as Defense, but the mechanics behind it are different. A character with a total Elusivity of X% against an attack will be hit by it X% less often than if he had no Elusivity to it.

Like Defense, Elusivity does not reduce the strength of any attacks that do hit, and each Elusivity bonus is specially marked to work only against attacks of certain types.

Unlike Defense, it reduces the chance of hitting by a proportional amount, effectively opposing Accuracy. (Defense reduces by a fixed amount, effectively opposing To Hit.)

Elusivity bonuses are only active in PvP Zones, including Arenas.
