Special attack

A player performs the special attack of the Dragon crossbow, Annihilate.

The crossbow has a special attack, Annihilate, which drains 60% of the special attack bar and hits any enemy in a 3x3 area. The primary target of Annihilate will take 20% extra damage, all other targets will take 20% less damage. If used in a single-way combat, the attack will still work but only hit one target with 20% extra damage. It ignores enchanted bolt effects.
