Special attack[edit | edit source]

A player uses Blood Sacrifice, the Ancient godsword's special attack

Like all godswords, the Ancient godsword has a special attack, Blood Sacrifice. In addition to doubled accuracy, it inflicts damage with a 10% higher maximum hit than a normal attack, consuming 50% of the player's special attack energy.

Upon performing the special attack, the target has eight ticks (4.8 seconds) to move at least five tiles away from the attacker. If the target fails to do so, they will take 20 damage (12 if using Protect from Magic), and the attacker will be healed for the same amount.

On November 12th, 2021, the functionality of the Ancient godsword's special attack was clarified. It was previously thought that the extra damage could be avoided if the target just moved five tiles away once the special attack was used, but this is not the case. The additional damage and healing will occur as long as the target is not at least five tiles away from the attacker after eight ticks (4.8 seconds).
