All of the following abilities require rage. Rage increases when delivering damage and also a little when taking damage.

Current rage can be displayed in the stats box by pressing #, or by pressing shift-ctrl-b to show it above your avatar. The rage bar is white when it is at 100%.

Each ability is executed when it is bound to an F-key and the appropriate key combination is pressed (e.g., bind the special move ability to F2 to use it with the alt+dir keyboard command; see Keyboard Controls).

Fighters

Each fighter weapon has a default special move which becomes available when you have 90% skill in that weapon. Executing the default special move of any fighter weapon type may be done by using the "special move" ability. However a fighter that has mastered two weapon skills may use the special moves from both weapons interchangeably (with some restrictions).

For example, a fighter that has mastered the longswords skill (ie obtained 90%) may use the flurry ability with an axe and a mace.

To execute other applicable rage attacks using any fighter weapon, you must first purchase the appropriate special attacks from the Fighter Specials Trainer at the University of Tanelorne - located at 135' 66". For example, you must purchase the CLEAVE special attack in order to use CLEAVE while wielding a longsword.

Note: To execute the special rage attack of a particular weapon skill, a minimum of 90% in that weapon skill and 100% rage is required. For example, when using an Axe type weapon, you may execute: (i) a CLEAVE if you possess at least 90% skill in Axes and have 100% rage, or (ii) a FLURRY if you possess at least 90% skill in Longswords and have 100% rage, or (iii) a THUNDERCLAP if you possess at least 90% skill in Maces and have 100% rage.
