Special attacks are unique abilities possessed by certain weapons in the Combat Improvements Beta, and which also existed prior to the Evolution of Combat. There are many types of special attacks, from temporary boosts in stats, to strikes dealing extra damage.
Special attacks are are activated from a button on the left side of the action bar. Each special attack requires a certain amount of adrenaline to use, which is also consumed on use. For example, the Korasi's sword special attack, Disrupt, may only be used at 60% adrenaline, and once using, 60% adrenaline is drained. There are no cooldowns on using special attacks, although after using a special attack, the player will have a reduced adrenaline gain for 1 minute. This does not stack with repetitive special attacks, such as the dragon mace's.
