Vigilant Blade Encounter Power Question

our group is kind of new to D&D and a question to the encounter power of "Vigilant Blade" occured:


Power: Immediate Reaction.

Trigger: You use this power when an ally adjacent to you is attacked by an enemy adjacent to you.

Effect: You switch places with the ally, and the target grants combat advantage to you until the end of your next turn.


So, the question is: do I swap places after my ally is hit or before? I thought my ally is attacked, I switch places, will be hit but have combat advantage against him.


Someone got an idea?

After.  Immediate reactions resolve after the triggering event fully resolves.  In this case, it triggers on the ally being attacked, but resolves after the entirety of the triggering attack.

Harrying your Prey, the Easy Way: A Hunter's Handbook - the first of what will hopefully be many CharOp efforts on my part. The Blinker - teleport everywhere. An Eladrin Knight/Eldritch Knight. CB != rules source.
