It's possible that you were trying to dip at too low an experience level, you need to be level 5 to get Excal. (Finding the fountains for 300 dips would be pretty flukish, too; they normally dry up before then.) If you're a character who can't get Excal, it's obvious (your sword has bad stuff done to it rather than being Excal-ised). You might also have been trying to dip a katana, which is a common mistake as a samurai; katana's aren't longswords, so won't become Excal. Ais523 (talk) 02:05, 7 May 2012 (UTC)
