Thus you will be able to rotate quicker, spend less time moving around the map, be able to engage and disengage in combat faster than your foes, etc. It also serves as an evasion tool, as it will be harder to hit you due to all the changes in your body position. Once you master it, it will be an essential trick in your arsenal.
