Previously, I stated that it was possible for a Sorcerer to have a total maximum of 63 Skeleton Warriors using Project Image. I was wrong... I just found out there is no maximum... if, if you have high WIS and have the 9th level spell, Wish.

Okay, interested yet? Allow me to warn you first that this is extremely cheesy and requires patience too. Here is how you do it... ...

By the way, did I mention that there is a side benefit? You never ever, ever need to rest again.

Step 01: Cast Project Image.

Step 02: Summon all the Skeleton Warriors that you can.

Step 03: Repeatedly cast Wish until you get the option where you become rested and rememorise all your spells( to replace the Project Image that you casted, this does not affect the illusion). If you fail all 6 attempts to get it, never mind, you still have several more Project Images left.

Step 04: Kill the illusion, either by casting spells on itself, or getting the Skeleton Warriors to hack him/her.

Step 05: Go back to Step 01.


Some things to note, when the spell Wish refers to enemies, it also applies to your summons, so never choose an option to do something hostile to enemies when you have summons, or they will go hostile to you.

Using this 'tactic', I summoned 100 Skeleton Warriors and a few Planetars and still had a full spell list when facing Jon Irenicus in the final showdown.

I only casted 3 spells during the fight... the summons took care of the rest.

True Sight, Ruby Ray, Spellstrike

Screenshots

Oh, oh... and regarding the side benefit, get this. From the moment I stepped into Suldenesslar up till now, my Sorcerer has not rested yet.

Equipment
---------
Armour: Robe of Vecna
Gloves: Bracers of Defence 3
Helmet: Pale Green Ioun Stone
Amulet: Amulet of Power
Rings: Ring of Acuity, Ring of Wizardry
Cloak: Cloak of Protection +2
Boots: Boots of Speed
Belt: Belt of Inertial Barrier

How did I get the Ring of Wizardry? Sacrificed some of my apprentices to make it. Why the choice of Rings? It is all about the spells, and having more never hurts. Why no Cloak of Mirroring? I have an 8 hour Spell Trap from the Staff of Magi, and I never need to rest again, so it is always there, fully recharged.

Other Equipment in Bag of Holding, Cloak of Mirroring, Cloak of Reflection, Boots of the North, Boots of Grounding, Girdle of Stone Giant Strength, Ring of Gaxx, Ring of Protection +2, Ring of Free Action, Ring of the Ram, Ring of Earth Control.

I'm Proud.
