When using evasion with the rogue, i'll get stunned despite not taking any damage (so the hit was successfully evaded) is this a bug or working as intended, and has anyone else noticed this behaviour?

It was an oversight at first, and I admit it kind of "make sense" that if you evade the damage you also evade the stun effects, but it felt too overpowered so I decided to leave it as it is.

I disagree a bit. It makes sense that evasion won't avoid stun and Co. It's not always a pure physical attack, it's more on a psychological level. Lions for example have a kind of stun effect with their roar. It's because of the Infrasound. Same goes for different other natural phenomena, so it's at least plausible that you can avoid the damage but not the stun effect ;)
