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 or 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.

    • 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  Soul ConversionKnock out another ally.)
      • This includes effects that cause a "fake" knock out (e.g., Street King's  Le Manteau Du RoiMC fakes their death and switches positions with a sub ally. (Can't recast.)
