E X A L T E D
A collection of aged weirdoes
European rp pvp server Aquilonia
The people who make up Exalted share several common values;
They want to spend their time online in the company of friends
They want to have fun
They want to pit their skills against the environment and other players
They want to continually improve their skills and create effective solutions to the problems that they come across
Wow.. just realized I haven't updated this one in a veeeery long time..
Guild city: The city is completely done and full tier 3. This includes walls, towers and also the new tavern.
Battle keep: Holding Stonehammer in Cimmerian End, t3. We are trying to keep sieges alive on the server, but unfortunately there aren't many other guilds interested in sieges on Aquilonia. The occasional siege is of course done, but as we get tons of whines and even are accused of "ruining the server" and "making guilds collapse" due to our sieges we don't do it too often. Usually this siege is done to the ones who has done Bori the most. At the moment it's safe to say that no alliance can withstand the forces of Exalted, Dracones and Koragg in sieges. Hopefully this will change soon so that we can get more sieges done on the server.
Activity: We still have no problems filling up our own raids and I would say we approximately have 40-50 active players. Plus some playing more casual and only logs in a couple of times during the week.
Pve: We are raiding Tier 3 three nights a week and have all bosses up until the very last one, Thoth Amon, on farm status.
We are raiding guild exclusive three evenings a week. Loot is distributed by a tokens (dkp) system.
Politics: Siege alliance is up with Dracones Nigri and Clan Koragg. Naturally this alliance also stand in world pvp.
Exalted still holds a friendly approach to neutral players and will in general not attack unless provoked. We rolled on a pvp server though and the occasional fair and friendly fight to hone ones strength is of course allowed, if the fun is present at both sides of the battle that is.
Recruitment: Currently closed. We've got a good member base and at the moment it's more important to keep intact the good guild atmosphere than to recruit head over heals for the sake of getting larger numbers.
Time for another update on how we do in Exalted. I'll here only mention the things that have changed since the last guild update.
Guild city: The city is progressing fine. We are done with all crafting related buildings and also the trade post (The by far heaviest one to build.) We are only missing Basalt and Duskmetal to complete the city.
Battle keep: After holding Stonhammer through storms and sunny days for 10 months we finally had to let it go to the Huns. The quest to get it back is still on, and we will indeed get it back.
Activity: We still have no problems filling up our own raids and I would say we approximately have 40 active players. Plus more playing more casual and only logs in a couple of times during the week.
Pve: We have all bosses up till Chatha (End boss of wing 2 in Brc) on "farm". We are raiding guild exclusive three evenings a week. Loot is distributed by a tokens (dkp) system.
Politics: Siege alliance is up with Clovers, Nova, Dracones and Sanguis. Naturally this alliance also stand in world pvp.
Recruitment: We have recently opened up our recruitment after having closed it for three months. This is primarily because summer is coming up and with summer comes lower activity. We also have lowered our level requirement to 40 as we are a guild who focus more on people than on classes and levels.
Guild communication: We have our own Ventrilo server running and encourage our members to also use it on evenings where we aren't raiding. Our forum is also very active and we probably spend too much time there during work hours. But we do have fun!
Members of Exalted as well as friends and enemies have for a while missed updates to this post so I'll here give a heads up on how we are doing in Exalted these days.
Guild city: We are currently progressing into the third tier, but as the resource requirements are pretty high (30.000 basalt for a building...) it takes quite a while to get some real progress. We have however built our t3 keep and as we are a pretty active guild we have a steady income of materials to our guild bank. It will however take an effort from all our members to get the city complete, but we will indeed get there.
Battle keep: We have our battle keep up in the Lacheish Plains Zone. We look forward to the other guilds getting ready to fight for a battle keep so we finally can get some siege action. This game pretty much was hyped up around it, so hopefully it won't be too long till we get something going.
Activity: We have approximately 40-50 active members (who logs in at least every other day) in Exalted, where approximately 30 of those are level 80's. We delete inactive characters after 30 days.
Pve: We raid three nights a week and also have guild exclusive happenings. Great fun and soon ready for brc.
We are at the moment doing joint raiding with the fine people of Fugitives so that we can ensure a full raid of high level players.
Politics: Politics change every so often on this server, and we are per date not allied with anybody. We still carry a close relationship with Rage though.
Upon the start of the game we made a pledge to fight the "Clan with lapdogs zerg" and even though there has been some changes in their numbers we still are at the other side of them. Can't turn our beloved server into a pve server!
A full diplomacy list can at all times be found here: http://www.exalted-aoc.com/main/diplomacy.html
Recruitment: Like everybody knows there has been a very chaotic start for AoC where people starting up and quitting the game daily. Due to this we still are recruiting. We do however have a level requirement of 60, but on top of that we also want to make sure that the ones joining Exalted is of the right breed. We are mature, we act mature, we have fun and we end usually up as friends. Leet language and cursing are examples of things we don't allow in Exalted. Well, actually one can curse ones heart out, but we encourage our members to be inventive about it. Read more about us in the link above if you are interested in joining.
Rp: Our complete background story can be found here: http://www.exalted-aoc.com/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?t=1194
We are not mmo role players by heart (We thought we would be to a much larger degree before the game was launched, but outside the taverns it's a hard days work for a rp'er on Aquilonia), but do of course play by the rules in any official gathering on the server.
Well, there's a small update for ya guys.
Thanks to everybody for making this server one of the most lively there is in the game!

Exalted would like to announce the joining of Claymore to the guild. Their fine members have always been greatly respected by Exalted and we are proud to have them join us in our travels through Hyboria.
Claymore joined Exalted this week, making us stronger and unite.
Being an ex Claymore officer, i would like to thank Exalted for leting us in, it was not an easy decision to make, but we fought the same enemies, had the same goals, why not over populate this guild that will be i am sure one of the bigest guilds in Aquilonia !
