-blade cascade on

-any recovery will be permament (that's why blade cascade should be triggeret first) so no weapon switching or black jacket + quick switch, wizards are f@ckd ? (nothing reduces to 0 grimoire switch recovery ??)

all out of combat with cheese

 

Umm I'm trying to understand it, you mean trigger reforge, extend it and then find something else to knock you out? Does that mean you cannot do it while soloing?

Do you mind explaining what does it mean? 😕

If you incur any recovery phase (attack, cast, weapon switching etc) you will be unable to do anything, that's why you need blade cascade first (otherwise you can't do anything besides walking). For weapon switching you need black jacket and quickswitch or do what Vic explain few posts up.

I think Kaylon meant why you'll have endless recovery to begin with. :)

 

if I had to guess it's because of reforge 🤣(it was always there when i triggered it) don't ask me why, I don't know 🤷‍♂️ I just tinkered with it a little to check if there is workaround from it

something I realized recently in case it is not already common knowledge: I think that to avoid the first risky fight in the Oracle of Wael small room, you should not steal things in the rooms with big Wael Eyes looking at you and not use the mages quest scrolls on the machine in the Memory Hoarder room until you have already talked with the oracle

A revised table about number of item swappings needed to prolong effects for X days, based on hopefully more correct formula:
1 in game day = 27 hours, game real time speed = 24x so 1 sec = 24/(3600*27) = 1/4050 days
APPLY EFFECT SWAPS TIMES TO ACHIEVE DURATION IN real time SECONDS and in game DAYS
e.g. starting form 3 real time sec effect duration, you would need about 134 - 11 = 123 swaps to reach 80 in game days effect duration,
starting form 30 real time sec effect duration, you would need about 134 - 36 = 98 swaps to reach 80 in game days effect duration...

How did you determine the time need for a swap? 

And did you guys know that you can swap SoF etc. a lot faster if you move the mouse cursor a tiny bit on the icon after each click? That way you will prevent the game from registering a double-click.

well you start from the effect duration description in seconds, usually it is at least 3 sec. Then you can in theory calculate 5% increase per point of intelligence > 10, but not really needed. if you don't have Wael challenge enabled it should be already visible in the tooltip.
then in that table you look for the row having about that duration in seconds e.g. assuming I have a 3sec positive effect and 16 INT, it would be something like 3 + 30% = 3.9 sec, so about line 14
then you look for the desired duration e.g. to prolong for about 80 days max challenge duration it would need in theory about line 134 - 14 (the starting time line) --> at least 120 swaps

about the swapping time, there are a couple ways to do it that I found working well
first one is to select an alternative object to swap e.g. strand of favor - another necklace, and single click while hovering over the (e.g. neck) slot. This is slow but the most important thing is to count the swaps so you would not be able to do it super fast anyway on the ultimate challenge (and this is what people playing the challenge usually do).
second one is to put the alternative object in the player personal objects area and double click it, it is faster but harder to count. this option can be used e.g. with a mouse macro to do it really super fast and easily if you are not doing the ultimate/not using wael/on a test playthrough as you can just start the macro, wait a minute and stop it when you see duration: infinite (it works more or less like swapping the Lethandria shield from AI script)

After not having touched my Ultimate for over 3 months due to personal issues, I finally revisited it today and lost it in a very unexpected manner.

I wanted to have an Avenging Storm scroll for water dragon fight, but didn't have wind essence (or whatever it's called :P), and the Scrooge in me let me go in Watershapers Guild first to avoid having to buy it in shops, because there are Storm Blights in there and quite a few of them.

Ofc I didn't get any, never lucky, and decided to be 100% sure for Nery fight, even tho Avenging Storm is not needed whatsoever and go out and buy either an essence or a scroll, whatever the shops have.

Unfortunately on my way out I talked to the Guildmaster, since i recovered her staff, which triggered the next step of the quest, and when I exited the watershaper's guild the dragon escaped and berath said hi immediately.

So do you die if the dragon escapes without you freeing or killing it? I've always done one of the latter options, and have never left the guild mid quest.

it is one of the Ultimate targets, and this is the one place you can kill it so if it escapes it is game over (same as Red Dragon)

I am not sure, but I think I remember it even triggers after receiving the quest to investigate the guild events from Onekaza.  After that, once you enter the underground floor of the guild you cannot go out without killing the dragon even if you don't talk with the guildmaster. I think I died like that during one of the test runs ([EDIT] or at least got the message about the dragon going away if that was a non-ultimate test run)

[EDIT2]
by the way, for anybody interested in swapping times, I realized 2nd table I posted some time ago  is probably not realistic, as when swapping/buffing with inventory opened time goes at 24x probably only during the few animation frames, compared to the time you spend on combat (where I think spell duration = real time seconds) or traveling (where you don't buff, time is stopped when you don't move and goes much faster when you move) it should be less relevant so a more practical table is probably like this (with day = 27 hours instead of 26 like assumed in 1st table)

I am not sure, but I think I remember it even triggers after receiving the quest to investigate the guild events from Onekaza.  After that, once you enter the underground floor of the guild you cannot go out without killing the dragon even if you don't talk with the guildmaster. I think I died like that during one of the test runs ([EDIT] or at least got the message about the dragon going away if that was a non-ultimate test run)

Nah I've been down there on this run before just for triggering the xp from talking to her the first time.

(I had slippers of the assassin active from smth else so I could move freely without fighting, so why not xd)

Ah, that may be different, I think I got the few loot from the underground floor well before receiving the quest, when the Naga were not yet there, then that one time I went down after getting the quest with the naga already there and tried to go out without fighting the dragon went away
