You don't activate it. "Passive" meaning it happens by chance or when it is not in cooldown.

Eh, no. Back in the day, Inqui's Mind Breaker was a passive skill despite being one of that class' main dps skills, and it doesn't really just happen by chance or when it isn't on cooldown, it just had to be activated by dodging + Left click. The point is not all passives are just something that happens by chance(Like autoblock) or when it is not on cooldown(Like Feint), it's that Passive just means that you can't put it on your skill bar. Some of them you still need to activate by pressing buttons.

I'll just list how each of them is activated.

•Smoke - Spam Left Click when you're knocked down on the ground. 16s CD.

•Fake Log - Spam Shift while you're getting attacked(Basically when you're taking damage from anything that's not a DOT). 20s CD.

•Aerial Evasion - Spam spacebar when you're knocked into the air. 18s CD.

•Feint - Only activates when your HP hits 0. Basically, if your HP hits 0, you recover 10% of your HP back. Allows you to survive some single hit teamwipe mechanics (Like failing the 10x pillar mech on IDN), or basically just hits that will kill you otherwise. Unfortunately, for some reason it doesn't work for DOTs like burn damage or Poison. Just think of it as something like a free resu. 300s CD.

Yeah, that's about it. The reason that I mentioned CDs are because obviously, these skills only work when they're off CD. So you cant just spam left click whenever you're on the ground of keep tanking boss hits because you have feint. Just learn each specific skill's Icon and keep track of their CDs when it shows up above your Minimap, so you'll know when each passive is available.

^ Just to add you can't use Fake Log with just shift. You need shift + directional key.

Some additional skills

Illusion Step = Tumble + Space Bar
Receive Edge = Left Click when lifted up on air by an attack (not jumping on your own)

To add on

Double Jump - Spacebar then hit space bar again. You will find yourself high on sky.

Fakelog - When got stunned by any non-DOT attack, spam "Shift + Directional Key" to activate it. It gives a short i-frame time, where when used properly can be used to dodge the boss attacks. Eg: Triple stomp of IDN. Ate the first stomp, use Fakelog to dodge second stomp, jump normally in third jump. Note that this skill is only can be activate when you touching the ground.

For Chaser,
Burning Charcoal - Despite being one of the DPS skill of Ripper, it provides a short i-frames. Simply press spacebar when using a skill or "Right click + spacebar".

Illusion Step - Basically a tumble extension. Tumble + spacebar

Well in dragon nest, some "passive" skills also function like your typical "active" skills.
Difference is that they are not added in hotkeys and activated by pressing certain keys on certain situations.
