Status Substitute.png
Substitute is a buff that causes a character to receive one-ally attacks in the place of an ally.

Substitute works on attacks with multiple hits, but not attacks that hit all allies


If multiple allies have a substitute effect the enemy attack will typically be redirected to the one in the highest slot, however some substitute abilities seem to have a lower priority and will be overridden by members in a lower slot e.g. Deliford (SR).
