Info
  • Excalibur draws an ethereal Skana and wields it as his melee weapon. Normal attacks inflict 100 / 125 / 200 / 250 damage within 2 meters.
  • Normal, slide, and aerial attacks will emit an energy wave in the direction of aim. Energy waves have the same base damage as the attacks that release them and fly at a constant speed of 15 m/s until they dissipate at a maximum distance of 40 meters.
    • Energy waves will Punch Through and hit enemies and terrain regardless of thickness up to their maximum range.
    • Wave range is not affected by mods.
    • Wave damage falls off with distance. Damage fall off is not affected by mods.
    • Enemies hit by the waves will suffer a stagger.
  • Attacks and energy waves have a 200% critical damage multiplier with a 15% critical chance and a 10% status chance.
  • Damage is affected by Ability Strength, the Melee Combo Counter and most mods.
  • Exalted Blade consumes 2.5 energy per second while active and will remain active until Excalibur's energy is depleted, or the ability is deactivated by pressing the ability key again (default 4 ).
  • Excalibur will auto-block any frontal attacks while Exalted Blade is active. Exalted Blade will also continue to block 60% of the frontal damage even while attacking or performing other actions.
  • Excalibur is unable to use any other weapon or equipped gear (e.g. Scanners, Fishing Spears) while Exalted Blade is active but can use all other abilities.
  • Exalted Blade is affected by and can trigger Warframe Arcanes.
  • While active, Exalted Blade will use an exclusive stance with its own set of combo attacks.
  • Slash Dash will receive bonus damage from Excalibur's Swordsmanship passive and each hit will release an energy wave when Exalted Blade is active.
  • Attacks can damage enemies across the Rift Plane.
  • Can be cast while moving or sprinting without interruption.

Tips & Tricks
  • Due to Exalted Blade's waves being able to unlimitedly punch through up to its maximum range, Exalted Blade is well suited to taking out hordes of enemies, especially if they are huddled together.
  • It's preferable to use Steel Charge over Growing Power when modding for pure damage as the former adds more damage to Exalted Blade than the latter.
  • Exalted Blade can be used to deal with enemies while in cover without having to have Punch Through mods equipped.
  • The innate slide attack blind provides a cheaper alternative to Radial Blind, albeit with greatly reduced duration and range.
    • Allows players to blind enemies and quickly deal with them without being delayed by stealth finisher animations.
  • Combined with Mag's Magnetize, the sword waves can be redirected to hit the enemies inside multiple times until its maximum range can be reached.

Bugs
  • Using this ability during an "Unarmed" bug will result Exalted Blade having the same stats as your Melee Weapon, and sometimes will perform your Melee Weapon's Unsheathed attacks without the Waves.
  • Energy Leech Eximus does not increase the energy drain of Exalted Blade while active.
  • If Excalibur enters Bleedout state while Exalted Blade is active, Excalibur will use his melee and sometimes primary weapon rather than his secondary.
  • Equipping Reflex Guard can make Excalibur sporadically not take damage if Exalted Blade auto-blocks damage.
