Special Attacks were actions that players could use in Destroy the Godmodder 2 that had more power than standard attacks and alchemies. They were adapted from the webcomic Problem Sleuth, and usually require some form of payment to use. There are four special attacks that can be used. They were first available in Scratch's Manor, then the Emerald Arena, and most recently, from The Echeladder.
Battle Techniques were the closest thing to a standard attack, and did not require charging. They deal moderate amounts of damage.
Combat Operandi were much more powerful attacks that utilized a player's special weapons or abilities to their fullest, and required charging to use. They also require Sacred Items to use: Hog Slop, Pie Filling, Weasel Snot, and Elf Tears. The higher charge the Operandi, the more Items required, and the more damage dealt. If there isn't enough Items for the attack to be used, the attack will fail.
Finale Operandi were the only Special Attack that didn't originate from Problem Sleuth. They were the most powerful Combat Operandi a player could use. To perform it, they needed to be at Level 10, and have had a Finale Operandi Token. Once both of those were equipped, the Operandi needed four posts to charge, and it could then be used at any time. Upon use, another Token was needed to preform it again. These attacks were much more powerful than even the most powerful Combat Operandi, and they channeled a player's very essence.
Combat Operandi section needs an updated rewrite, with less far less fluff.
