Attack/Defense Far Save (Japanese: 鎧の護り手・遠間 Armor guardian · long-distance) is a three-tiered passive type C skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; the individual tiers of the skill are A/D Far Save 1, A/D Far Save 2 and A/D Far Save 3 in order from lowest to highest. When an enemy with a 2-range weapon skill initiates combat against an ally near the user, a user of A/D Far Save enters combat in that ally's place, receiving a boost to their Attack and Defense and all of the non-movement after-combat effects from that combat; the tier of the skill affects the size of the stat boost.
