    Greetings Valuable Players! After much discussion and consideration, Excalibur has decided to open a few new social media venues. Facebook has always been a great place to keep up with server updates and the occasional meme. We have now added Instagram to the mix! On Instagram, expect to see much of the same content as on our Facebook. Finally, we opened an Excalibur Twitch channel. Here, we will be streaming GM events as well as hosting and promoting players that are interested in streaming their raids, pvp, or other gameplay to the community. If you are interested in promoting your Twitch channel, please contact us via support ticket or forum pm.

    For a long time, the players of Excalibur have requested the title of Scarab Lord, and for the ability to gain the title through multiple routes. We have listened and we have been working on the means. So some of you might have noticed our bug problem in the Capital Cities, well, this is just the beginning of what is going to happen. It has begun and the Shadow of Ahn'Qiraj is on the move. Check the Events Section of the forum for what to expect each month as the Event continues to progress and develop. Many will take up this challenge, but few will see the end. Answer the call Champions of Azeroth, you are needed once again.

    Maybe a week's worth of crossfaction BG to see if it's as terrible as some people claim? If not switch back, would a temp trial hurt the server anymore than the state we're currently in?

    Please keep this discussion on topic or we will have to lock the thread. Just to be clear, the staff here is trying our very hardest to provide the best playing experience possible for the players. Unfortunately, large changes cannot be made over night and need to be thoroughly considered and fool-proofed before being implemented. We are in the process of looking over every suggestion in the thread you originally posted in above @Thedruid.

    Greetings! As of the latest revision, crossfaction also applies in guilds. This means you no longer have to have two separate guilds for Alliance and Horde, you can invite both factions to one guild. Please let us know if you encounter any issues! Regards~~

    We missed the spot on the Topg, but we smashed all the other ones, so we will have double rates this month again! Since it is x-mas time we decided to prolong the rates to 5 days instead of 3. In conclusion, double rates will be active from 21st of December 00:01 until 25th of December 23:59 server time. Have fun!

    I would like to commend you guys on this addition as it had a very positive impact on me. Thanks to the BG counter, I have to say I went from logging in once a week for a guild raid to actively trying to log in every day. My decline in activity had nothing to do with the state of the server, I love it through and through, but as I have been a bit busy the last few months, I found less and less time to play, to get to the point, apart from the fact that I like long-term achievements (the 500 days of daily BGs was a great idea!) and am trying to log in daily just to do the daily BG, I feel like there's a lot more people playing PvP and the battlegrounds are a lot more enjoyable! I personally think adding this feature is a noticeable improvement to PvP and I'm really glad you guys came up with something like this. I know this might be a bit of a stretch, but as it's possible to add pvp-related "achievement" kind of stuff to the game, I think it could be an interesting thought to entertain to consider similar stuff for PvE content as well, as most of the peeps here have experience with the wotlk-and-further achievements system and know how addictive it can be to chase, and play the game more in order to achieve, all kinds of irrelevant stuff if you have a fancy counter to keep track of those things. To conclude, I as a long time player with a (sadly, unintentionally) dwindling activity love this new feature and I hope you guys will come up with more features to improve the player experience! Thanks again, cheers, Dwarfrogue, Human Priest

    And you think by any chance this would change something? 90% of the players on this server has no idea what to change and how to change it to increase the population and you wanna make those people decide over changes? Like you want the devs to stop fixing bugs and improving the server? Ive already wrote it in another topic with the similiar discussion: The staff is limited in things to do to increase the population. You can get 5000 new players each day. When they read world chat or ask for help on excalibur none of them will stay because why should they start on a toxic server? Before you demand the administration to change things the community should change their behaviour first. Its about getting excalibur more publicity. Thats something everybody can do without the gms help. P.S: there werent that many bad changes in the past. Just tell me one.

    This 100% This argument only works for people with your same viewpoint which is not a majority. If that were the case then all the non blizzlike elements that they did 10+ years ago to attract players wouldnt have worked such as purchasble legendaries/sunwell items, bojs from vanilla content, crossfaction grouping, messaging, auction house, but it did work to attract a playerbase. The whole blizzlike or nothing endall be all mentality has done more harm to the server than good over the past few years.

    To clear some things up: you can play as many games as you want every day, but only the first game is counted towards milestone progress. It can be either win or loss. You are not required to play every day, progress does not reset if you miss a day, two or even whole week. Daily progress resets at the same time as daily quests. Soon we will add a chat command to let you check your status, will be announced later.

    General Cross-Faction chat, mail and grouping has been disabled. Horde and Alliance have once more become mortal enemies. Since PvP is considered to be dead regardless of the actual truth, Excalibur has been set from PvP to PvE Server To balance out the amount of characters per race, race changes to female dwarf (with pigtails) are now free Since we clearly prefer the Horde over the Alliance, Night Elves can no longer become druids New command: .needgm will now send an alert to any GMs mobile phone, so that they may drop their private life and assist you instead New command: .murloc will play the popular murloc_hostile soundfile for players within 20 yards range Whispers to other players are now accurately displayed in a smaller text font size than regular speech. World Environment Moonglade can now only be accessed by Tauren. Zone has been renamed to Mooglade Defias Messenger has been removed from the game. Players weren't able to find him anyway.

You are level 70 for a while now... just use your flying mount. Mage Mana Emerald has been removed from the game. Mana Ruby is all that you need. The travel distance of Blink has been doubled.

Players that joined the raid longer than 10 minutes ago and are still in a capital city can no longer be the target of 'Ritual of Summoning'. 'Shadowbolt' now has a cooldown of 3 seconds, allowing the player to use more than one spell. Priest Fixed an issue that made it possible for Shadow Priests to rival actual damage dealers.

Increased Circle of Healings effective range around the target to 30 yards. It's overpowered anyways. Divine Spirit/Prayer of Spirit is now a basic class spell. Placing an undergeared priest alt before the instance portal is no longer required. Rogue Rogues do now skip level 19. Any rogues still at level 19 will be set to level 20 upon their next login Entering Stealth will now play the Mission Impossible theme only for you to hear. Increased the chance to find a rogue that bothered leveling up Lockingpicking by 30%. Added a chance for Sap to critically fail, incapacitiating the rogue instead.

What is Bloodlust?" "BLOODLUUUUSTTTT!!!!!" Fixed an issue that caused certain shamans to place a Windfury totem in the hunter group.

Combo points in Cat form have been replaced by Mood points. They are generated when the Cat feels like it. The chances for a feral dps druid to find a raid group have been increased by 15%.
