Special Attack

Each special attack used drains 50% of your special attack energy. When used a toxic siphon will be launched from the blowpipe. This has a 100% increased accuracy and damage is increased by 50%. Additionally, the user will be healed for 50% of the damage dealt.

If the target dies from the special attack, the player will still be healed based on the number they would have hit if the target did not die. This is similar to the way the Saradomin Godsword special works.
