Polymorph Any Object spell.



Sword Of True Strike is it's own brand of cheese.  And a Quicken?

"Creating a magic weapon has a special prerequisite: The creator’s caster level must be at least three times the enhancement bonus of the weapon. If an item has both an enhancement bonus and a special ability the higher of the two caster level requirements must be met."

My item isn't a sword and hasn't a +20 enhancment bonus to both damage & attack roll (that a +20 epic sword could have)

Quote
Lens of True Strike – Intelligent Item
Rapid+4 True Srike (1)
5x9x1800 + 4000 = 85.000 vg

It's a word-activated wondrous item - casting on trigger a quickned true strike on the character (so don't take a standard action to activate). however i committed an error 'cose the intelligent item can't activate the spell targeting me (range: Personal) so the "A.I." on item is pretty useless.

On "making magic items (part Seven)"
Quote
Use the Correct Formula: One item people frequently ask me about is a ring oftrue strike. The spell provides
a whopping +20 insight bonus on attack rolls and negates miss chances arising from concealed targets. It's
only 1st level, however, because it is a personal range spell with a duration of 1 round. That means you can
normally manage one attack every 2 rounds when using the spell. Also, you can't bestow it on an ally (except
for a familiar or animal companion) because of its personal range.
Assuming such a ring worked whenever it was needed and has a caster level of 1st, it would cost a mere
2,000 gp by the formula for a use-activated spell effect (in this case, 1 x 1 x 2,000 gp). Sharp-eyed readers
will note that any continuously functioning item has a cost adjustment of x4 (see the footnotes to Table 7-33),
which bumps up the ring's cost to 8,000 gp. That's a real bargain for an item that provides so much boost to
a user's combat power. Much too great a bargain.
So, what would our example ring of true strike be worth? Insight bonuses aren't included on Table 7-33, but
a weapon bonus has a cost equal to the bonus squared x 2,000 gp, so a +20 weapon would cost 800,000
gp. One can argue that the ring isn't quite as good as a +20 weapon because it doesn't provide a damage
bonus. That, however, ignores the very potent ability to negate most miss chances. Also, the ring's insight
bonus works with any sort of attack the wearer makes. On top of all that, the insight bonus stacks with any
enhancement bonus from a magic weapon the wearer might wield. Still, 800,000 gp is a lot of cash and the
lack of a damage bonus is significant, so some price reduction is in order. A 50% reduction might be in
order, or 400,000 gp for the ring.

the author writes about a continuous truestriking item. It dosen't cost an (quick in this case) action and this is whorty @high levels.
However a continuous item of Truestriking with the formula of 1x1x2000x4(1round multiplyer) is possible, but the bonus will apply only @the first attack the user do. it's a 1-shot actionless +20 attack roll for 8000gp .. i wound't buy it.

Repost from here at the OP's request. I present my own entry, not just for the 10^100 challenge, but even for an even tougher 144^12 challenge, which includes two bonus goals (written below).

Arthur, the perfectly ordinary man
...with a dragon symbiote
(click to show/hide)
Now for the challenge:
1) 144 AC
Deflecting Force provides NI AC

2) +144 to hit
---- 2a. Capable of doing this at least once a round
---- 2b. Waived for casters who can produce save DCs of 144+
---- 2c. Waived for a maximum of 3 rounds during the challenge whilst buffing.
NI Cha and sorcerer casting provides NI DCs.

3) Deals 144 damage average per round
---- 3a. This damage can be melee, at range, or created by spells/effects.
The Force Dragon's breath weapon deals NId12 damage.

4) +144 bonus to a selected skill check
---- 4a. This bonus must be applicable to any and every subtype of your selected skill check.
NI Cha provides +NI to Diplomacy.

5) 144 ft movement speed
---- 5a. Must exercise this movement twice in the challenge and still maintain stats
Cast Fly during the buff rounds, lasts NI minutes.
Base fly Speed 60'
+10 ft. untyped (Planar Touchstone: Catalogs of Enlightenment (Celerity))
+10 ft. insight (Speed of Thought feat)
+10 ft. untyped (Lord of the Sky, cast during buff rounds, lasts NI minutes)
+30 ft. untyped (Arial Alacrity, cast during buff rounds, lasts NI minutes)
+30 ft. enhancement (Haste, cast during buff rounds, lasts NI rounds)
Total: 150' fly speed

6) +144 Bonus on either Fortitude, Reflex or Will Saves
---- 6a. This bonus must be applicable to any and every subtype of your selected save.
Advanced Force Dragon provides +NI to all saves.

7) 144 spell-levels castable
---- 7a. Must cast 12 of these spell levels during the challenge
---- 7b. Yes, psionics count.
NI spell slots, and thus spell levels, castable. See point 12 for what he casts.

8) 144 hit points (don't laugh until you read the next one...)
In the buff rounds, he casts Greater Heroism, Empowered Maximized False Life, Empowered Maximized Aid (from Extra Spell), Empowered Maximized Heroes' Feast (from Extra Spell, and eats the feast), Summon  Monster I, and Empowered Maximized Chanelled Lifetheft (with 2 full rounds spent casting it) on the summoned monster. All with Reserves of Strength.
Greater Heroism provides 20 temp hp for NI minutes.
Empowered Maximized False Life provides 10+1.5*5.5+13 = 24 (minimum) temp hp for NI hours.
Empowered Maximized Mass Aid provides 8+4.5*1.5+18 = 27 (minimum) temp hp for NI minutes.
Maximized Heroes' Feast provides 8+13 = 21 (minimum) temp hp for 12 hours.
Maximized Chanelled Lifetheft provides 5*8+10 = 50 temp hp for 1 hour.
Total: 141 temp hp for 1 hour, for a total of 144 hp.

9) Survive 144 points of possible damage each round
---- 9a. 12 damage of 10 different types each round
---- 9b. Fire, Cold, Sonic, Electricity, Acid, Profane, Divine, Piercing (silver and magic), Bludgeoning (cold iron and magic), and Slashing (adamantine and magic)
---- 9c. The elemental and divine damages may be reduced by resistances and immunities. Evasion and Improved Evasion do work to reduce these if you make a DC 100 Reflex save each round. Damage reduction also functions as normal vs the melee damages.
---- 9d. These points of possible damage are dealt to all cohorts, animal companions, mounts, etc, involved in the challenge.
Cast Favor of the Martyr in a buff round.
Regeneration (bypassed only by Good or Chaotic) converts all damage to nonlethal, Favor of the Martyr prevents the nonlethal damage.

10) Must sustain all of these stats for 144 seconds (that's effectively 24 rounds)
Actions by round: (Swift) GAF action loop (detailed in 12), (Move) move 150 ft., (Standard) breathe a cone of force.
Arthur has 30 Force Dragon heads, one per round can breath a cone of force with 6 rounds to spare.
Spells for temporary hp last >= 1 hour as noted above.
Other spells last >= NI rounds, i.e. forever.

11) An ability score of 144.
Advanced Force Dragon symbiote provides Int, Wis, and Cha of NI.

12) 12 actions per round.
Cast Arcane Spellsurge in a buff round, then cast the Greater Arcane Fusion/Sanctum Spell/Celerity combo as a swift action every round for infinite actions.

(click to show/hide)

Incidentally...
I'd like to see a PC build that RAW does this without 9th level spells, custom items, or things in the dirty trick handbooks.
I think I nailed it.

hmm ... a supra-advanced Dragon, with a bit of cheese.


Tauric was noticed to do this within say a month of SS coming out.

"deathwishjoe" has entry #8 on this competition,
with a variant on his Effigy Master build.
http://www.minmaxboards.com/index.php?topic=6590.msg99576#msg99576
here is a mention of it from 6 years ago:
https://community.wizards.com/forum/previous-editions-character-optimization/threads/1186716

It took a while for people to realize that Symbiotic did this too.

Cheese tasty glorious cheese.

What you should know:

Quote
Power Link
A power link  taps the latent psionic power  of your  quori spirit.
Description: Like all quori embedded shards, a power link is a Siberys dragonshard implanted in your body.The power link glows a soft yellow when you use it.
Prerequisite: The user of a quori embedded shard must be a kalashtar or Inspired,  and the shard must  be implanted (see page 264 of the EBERRON Campaign Setting)
Activation: You call upon the power of this shard as a free action while manifesting a psionic power, up to three times per day. If you have multiple embedded power link shards, you can draw from any number of them with a single action.
Effect: W hen you  draw  upon a power link,  the power you manifest is augmented by 2 power points (beyond any augmentation you  provide  from your  own  power  point reser ve).  This augmentation can result in more  power points  invested  in the power  than you  have  levels.  Each additional implanted power link shard you draw on increases the augmentation by an additional 2 power points.

Construction: Requires Craft Universal Item, bestow power power, 1,500 gp, 120 X P, 3 days.
Weight: 1 lb.
Price: 3,000 gp.

Quote
Implanting Quori Shards
A quori embedded shard is created using the Craft Universal Item feat (see the Expanded Psionics Handbook). However, the powers of the shard can only be activated by the life force of a kalashtar or Inspired. Implanting a shard requires the Craft Universal Item feat and 10 ranks in Heal. The process takes 1 hour, and the subject permanently loses 1 hit point as part of the bonding process.
A shard draws on the psychic energy of its bearer, and as a result there is a limit to the number of shards that a person can support. Shards do not use up a body slot, but a character can only have one embedded shard for every manifester level that he possesses. Once a shard is implanted, it bonds to the muscle and bone of the subject and cannot be removed.

Preparation:

Step I
Install 20 Quori Power Link Shard (Magic Of Eberron p115) : +2Agumentation 3/Day -1HP, 3000gp

 •   Recive casting of Awaken: 5x9x10=450gp+(250xp x5gp/xp) = 1700gp x2 = 3400gp
 •   Dismiss Metamorph
Do x1
 •   Metamorph Into a Dog with Metamorphosis
 •   Recive casting of Maximized Awaken: 8x15x10=1200+(250xp x5gp/xp) = 2500gp

•   +150HD/+150ML, +150 Power Link Shards: +300pp Agumentation 3/day -1500Hp

Step III : Return under 21th level for non-epic status

Stab yourself with Death Devotion-imbued knife and auto-fail the save to lose a level untill Wilder reaches lv 20+

Quote
Level Loss
A character who loses a level instantly loses one Hit Die. The character’s base attack bonus, base saving throw bonuses, and special class abilities are now reduced to the new, lower level. Likewise, the character loses any ability score gain, skill ranks, and any feat associated with the level (if applicable). If the exact ability score or skill ranks increased from a level now lost is unknown (or the player has forgotten), lose 1 point from the highest ability score or ranks from the highest-ranked skills. If a familiar or companion creature has abilities tied to a character who has lost a level, the creature’s abilities are adjusted to fit the character’s new level.

The victim’s experience point total is immediately set to the midpoint of the previous level.

Use free xp between levels (thus also xp between lv20 and 21) for "Indipendent Research" of Powers > Research every possible Psionic Power [F**k you Psions!!] - Xp[20/21]: 10000 => Xp[N/N+1;N>19]: 10000+(N-20)x1000Xp => 1.660.000 Free Xp

Residual Gain after Step III:
•   +150 Quori Power Link Shards, + (24x3d3+2d3+3) Cha= +114 Cha, 18 Int, -150Hp + Knowledge of all Psionic Powers

144^12 Competition EVEN CHESEEIER

Ragnarok the Awakened

Kalashtar, Wilder (Educated Wilder) 19 Marshal 1

Follow the Blood Touched Rite

Stats:
STR:   10/+0    (8 Point Buy + Belt of Strenght+2)
DEX:   10/+0
CON:   18/+4    (14 Point Buy +1 Lv Increment -2 Blood touched Rite +5Amulet of Health +5)
INT:    10/+0 
WIS:   14/+2
CHA:  28/+9 (18 Point Buy +4 Lv Increment + 6 Crown of Charisma+6)


HD-Based Feats:
1.   Death Devotion
2.   Psicrystal Affinity
3.   Psionic Meditation
4.   Practiced Manifester
5.   Quicken Power
6.   Craft Universal Item
7.   Free Slot

Wilder:
•   Expanded Knowledge x4 5th/9th/13th/17th

ML20 (Practiced Manifester)

311PP+90Bonus PP / 10 Powers Known (Inertial Armor, Force Screen, Precognition Offensive, Prescience Offensive, Mind Thrust, Vigor, Share Pain, Free Slot, Bend Reality, Free Slot)

+ 4 Expanded Knowledge (Free Slot, Free Slot, Metamorphosis, Free Slot, Free Slot)

By Spellcasting Service you can buy a cast of Awakening for 5x9x10=450gp+ (250xp x5gp/xp) = 1700gp.

188 Castings of Awakening give to the PC:
376HD, 125 Feats and +376 ML (with 94 Practiced Manifester feats), +188d3 Cha [+282], 11 Int

for 188 x 1700 = 320.000gp

PC can self-bestow Negative levels and expend half-level xp points, we  for A. Crafting Objects B. Researching new powers with Personal Research (100xp/power Level).

For each level over 20th and halfway from the next one: [N/N+1]: Xp N/N+1 = [20<N<377]: 10000+(N-20)x1000Xp = More then 3.770.000xp (not counting the 1000xp increase every level) are aviable for this process.

A.
Having 200 as a target number of Quori Power Shards, we can lose only 376+20-200 = 196 levels of "halway XP" to build and  install all of them. Disposable xp for this task is: 196x10000 (without xp increments between one level and another) = 196.000xp

1 Power Link Shard Costs 1.500gp and 120xp to build. x200 = 300.000gp + 24000xp
200 Shards give: +400 PP/ML 3/day, +1200 PP/ML Pool, -200 hp

Meanwhile we can also construct with ease the other items mentioned:

Amulet of health +5          25000gp > 12500gp + 1000xp
Crown of Charisma +6          36000gp > 18000gp + 1500xp
Belt of Strength +2           4000gp > 2000gp + 160xp

For a total of 26600xp spent.

Question : Are adaptations permissible for this challenge?  I can blow this thing away with a Cha-based caster no problem, but only ever see things like the HIVE or such for psionics (including thrallherds), and would love to throw one of my super-hoods at it.  Let me know!

The Chrono-Trancer, Tri-fold Challenge Destroyer and Prodigy of the Chrono-Legionnaire

Build Goals: Take out the Twice-Betrayer of Shar without the need to dispel his AMFs (that with a build shuffle are Su anyhow).  Take out a Hecatoncheires with little to no risk to self, dragoon style (the goal of the original Chrono-Legionnaire).  Take on and succeed at the 10^100 challenge.

Further Limitations:
-No Unearthed Arcana or Dragon Magazine material will be used.

-No questionable rules from Master Spellthief and Sublime Chord, or chintzy Mind Mage stacking (which is Dragon mag anyhow).

-No form altering magic used in any of the three challenges - not even the 10^100 for Jumplomancy.

-No abjectly custom magical items - only item stacking at 50% additional price per MiC/DMG item creation rules (e.g. to add Sandals of Springing effect to Boots of Skating, add 9,000gp to the cost of the boots - 150% the cost of the sandals).

-No Leadership used.  Minions are squishy, and while this guy can become a Nasty Gentleman (tm), he won't need to ;)

-Psicrystal Feat Progression left out/vague.  The build certainly gets a few more tricks if this is allowed, but for maximum coverage, works as is using its own feats only.  Feat Leech is included as a power known, however.

Other Notes:
-With the FR specific exceptions to Psi-Magic Transparency (which really don't matter, as there won't be a dead magic zone, only AMF and NPF), standard transparency is assumed.  Magic mantle is not in use, so no questionable rules from that, either.

-The regional feat Battle Jump is taken at 1st level to ensure no quibbles about taking a regional feat using Knowledge (local) ranks, and the 'Boing, Boing, Battle Jump!' trick is not used, though it is certainly an option, should we wish to go down the TO road...

-A time-trait modified demiplane is only utilized as a time-saver for growing the node.  There is no need for planar trait abuse, and with the myriad ways of gaining immortality available to this guy, it's ultimately not even a necessity, just a convenience (though it would take an incredibly long time to grow a Class 18 Earth Node...).

The Build:

Gear:

Notable Powers:
Offensive Prescience, Offensive Precognition, Defensive Precognition, Force Screen, Inertia Armor, Assimilate, Metaphysical Weapon, Energy Adaptation, Biofeedback, Vigor, Share Pain, Schism, Hustle, Moment of Prescience.  All remaining slots are free for customizing to taste (total 31 from levels, and 18 from a Class 18 Node).

The basic idea is body outside body from the Wu Jen list let’s you create non spellcasting copies of yourself with on quarter of your hp so you take body outside body as an SLA and your clones can now cast it but eventually u run out of hp to split. But that’s where void dispicle comes in with moment of clarity you can add epic feats equal to your intelligence times your number of clones so with a base intelligence of 5 you add about 10000 feats every use so you put all of them into greater con from epic level handbook this allows for basically infinite clones and then 8 rounds later perform the moment of clarity again however one clone doesn’t do it 8 rounds after the final clone uses moment of clarity to add an obsered amount of health.
With damage you basically have 10000 clones so they beat up on any opponent with a twined maximized empowered sunstroke thanks to incantrix entwined metamagic so 100 is easy
Survivability is also quite simple as trancend mortality give damage reduction 30 all types so easy and because I’d count the clones as cohorts they cast it upon themselves for perfect survivability.
In the end you have infinite everything and a massive army of clones

Also if planning on using this build in a campaign have one of your clones polymorphe into a psychic sinew from fiend folio and have them cast trancend mortality on you just remember to disband them before the duration ends so you don’t take an obsered amount of damage cause each clone does 10 to you when it dies.

I wonder if a Dragon Wild Shape druid or Tash PsyWar can beat this...I may have to add "Shen Long" and "Vegeta" to the finalists here soon.  Too bad my mind mage is DQ'ed (though I bet the Red Wizard could hit the 10x100 at least).

Anything can beat this little "challenge".

You should go above an beyond though, AC is pretty worthless and Attack Rolls inherently have a 5% rate of failure. Plus I don't think 100pp (sic one hundred 1st level powers per day) is a very high benchmark and neither is taking 100 damage per round give the multiple ways to become immune to damage.
Would you die if you jumped from my perceived ego to your IQ? - Is 15secs of confirmation bias a goal post worth arguing for? - Ever asked a "victim" what they did to deserve it? - Are the words teen, SJW, & liberal synonyms? - "Only Sith deals in absolutes" contains a misspelled word.

Do you mean the tailed beast that was based on the TO idea you could stack Quori shards to hit five quintillion damage? TO subforum, within the Quori post somewhere. I still don't really think it's intended, but I've seen worse reposted as "legal" TO.
