So it's occasionally useful, and (rarely) a lifesaver. Dodging on the other hand is somewhat useful a lot of the time. I would definitely take it over Leaping if I was planning on taking Flanking. I used to take Flanking a lot, now days much less so because of the expense.

I often just delay choosing which one to take as long as possible. If I get stuck in an appropriately bad situation, I take Leaping to get out. If I haven't gotten stuck by the time I'm ready to take Sprinting, then I take Dodging+Sprinting.

But really, instead of Leaping, my preference is a Mattock of Belegost.
