Special Attacks

Special Attacks can be used in combat to gain a slight advantage over the monster being fought. Equipping a weapon with a special attack will give your attacks a chance to perform a special attack. Manually eating food or switching gear will cancel the players special attack. Only a select few high level weapons have special attacks. Several monsters can use special attacks against the player, including and from the , and all of the monsters from the four god dungeons. The attack bar will change to yellow when a special attack is being used.

If the player has multiple items equipped whose cumulative base special chance is greater than 100%, the chances of each special attack are scaled down such that the cumulative chance equals 100%. For example, a player who has both the (100% special chance) and (15% special chance) equipped will have a $\displaystyle{ 100 \times \frac{100}{100+15} = 86.96\% }$ chance of Blade Echoes and a $\displaystyle{ 15 \times \frac{100}{100+15} = 13.04\% }$ chance of Quad Swipe occurring.
