The Special Attacks mod draws heavy inspiration from RuneScape, another highly popular online game. Basically, it allows players to take their standard weapons and charge them up, allowing for special attacks based on the weapon type. This mod adds a few new items, such as Crystals of Energy, which are essential for charging weapons in the first place. It’s also important to note that weapon charging will fail unless the weapon is at 100% durability – you cannot charge a used weapon, though you could repair it back to full durability and then charge it, if you really want to.
There are active and passive special attacks. Once a weapon is charged, to use an active attack, the player must left click, then right click, then left click again, all very rapidly. The window for the special attack is literally a second or two, so some speed is required to make it work. The Special Attacks mod also adds passive specials, which work as long as the weapon is being held and don’t require and special timing or button presses to activate. Similar to the way enchanted weapons work in The Elder Scrolls game series, the charge will deplete with each blow, but slowly regenerate over time or with the appropriate items.
