Switch Ally

From Granblue Fantasy Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Switching main allies and sub allies during battle can occur under the following situations:

When a switch occurs, it will always pick the character in the first sub ally position unless that sub ally is knocked out. A few skills allow the player to pick specific characters to switch.

When a Full Elixir square.jpg Full Elixir or Revival Potion square.jpg Revival Potion is used, all characters in the party will instantly return to their initial positions. This does not count as a valid switch-in for Switch Ally interactions.

Interactions with Switch Ally

Note that support skills listed below follow specific rules :

  • This support skill activates when the character switches from a sub ally position to a main ally position. It will not activate when the switch is caused by a skill, such as Ability m 98 3.png ChangeMain Character switches positions with a sub ally. or Ability m 98 3.png Tactical RelocationSwitch positions of any two allies..
    • Starting the battle in a sub ally position is not a requirement to activate this support skill.
  • The following conditions will activate this support skill:
    • When a main ally is knocked out due to damage, which causes the character to switch in
    • Player-controlled effects that knock out a main ally, which causes the character to switch in (e.g., Death's summon call, Luna's Ability Soul Conversion.png Soul ConversionKnock out another ally.)
      • This includes effects that cause a "fake" knock out (e.g., Street King's Ability m 2113 3.png La Manteau Du RoiMC fakes their death and switches positions with a sub ally. (Can't recast.)
        When switching with an ally: Switched ally gains Status 7615.pngSurrogate SuccessorATK is boosted / DEF is boosted / Double attack rate is boosted / Triple attack rate is boosted / More likely to be attacked (Can't be removed)
        Multiplier: PerpetuityDuration: Indefinite
        .
        When MC returns: MC gains Status 7615.pngTrue HeirATK is boosted / DEF is boosted / Double attack rate is boosted / Triple attack rate is boosted / Skill cooldowns are cut by 1 turn (Can't be removed / Skill cooldown can't be made lower than 1 turn)
        Multiplier: PerpetuityDuration: Indefinite
        .
        )
    • Enemy special attacks that force the character to switch in with a main ally (e.g., Ultimate Bahamut's Virtuous Verse)
    • Switching in using the Switch Party command in the Tower of Babyl.
  • Can only activate once per battle, even if the character is revived after being knocked out.
