I didn't mean to imply that; I was just unclear on how Drifting Shadow Focus was intended to work with regards to the redirected target's ability to activate Reflexive defensive effects and prior knowledge of the attack roll's result, and FDV was the first Charm that I found that seemed to have a similar effect (though, admittedly, I had overlooked DBs' Safety Among Enemies). The way I asked that question was ... not particularly direct.
Oh, the new victim does get a chance to use defensive Charms normally.
An additional question to that: am I correct in thinking that the use of these redirection Charms causes an onslaught penalty on the Charm user as well as on the new target of the redirected attack?[/QUOTE]
You do still get the onslaught for being attacked.
