Permanent zero-cost reflection shield? The one that can save you from all eight kinds of disaster?? Dear friends, I present the ultimate meta abuse: permanent reflection shield. This is meta meta, balls deep in the rabbit hole, so brace yourself... - cast reflection shield on anything, a candlestick, a summoned orc, Liam's mum, whatever. - activate turn-based-combat mode. - reflect a reflection shield off the target's reflection shield (whoa) - IN THE SAME COMBAT TURN, cancel the target's reflection shield. This appears to be the paradox moment. For an instant, both reflection shields are both active and cancelled, and they are each simultaneously both on the target and on the player. WHOA. - End combat. From now on, the target has an invisible, permanent reflection shield. Whoa. - Cast another reflection shield onto the target. It reflects onto you. - Cancel the reflection shield. The cancellation reflects off the target, onto your shield, which reflects back to the target, cancelling their invisible shield effects, and giving you a permanent shield. - you may now reflect all spells at zero cost and, most elusively, sleep under the curse of falcon's ache. - to cancel the effects, just cast and cancel a reflection shield on yourself. This always removes your ultimeta shield, but sometimes the animations remain. If the animations jam, just repeat the process, layering the cancellation animation onto your character until it cleans up the remnant floating hexagons. A real time failed reflected reflection shield is a quick way to bounce cancellation animations. P.S., sleeping while under the curse of Falcon's Ache is an experience... all of the ten second curse choruses pile up to make a noise like the dark side of the force. P.P.S., included here are some research records which make Kergan and the Gnomish Merchants eugenics conspiracy look like choirboys by comparison.
