Special attackEdit


A player performing the Excalibur's special attack, Sanctuary.

The Excalibur has a special attack, Sanctuary, which temporarily increases the player's Defence level by 8, consuming 100% of the player's special attack energy. Because of its stats, many low levelled players use Excalibur for combat as it is relatively easy to obtain and is free the first time you get it.
