What are Ultimates
Once you have gone through your class change process from level 85 into level 86, you will be able to acquire many new things, one of them being Ultimates. Each class branch other than the mechanical class will each have one Ultimate. Ultimates are basically formulas for new skills for each class, and are game changers for some classes.
Where to get your Ultimates
Formulas for Ultimates are dropped by bosses in Blazing Kaslow (L86+) as well as Condemned Island (L88+) or Mutated Forbidden Temple (L88+). In order to enter either of the normal dungeons you will need to have done the main quests for them but if you decide to not do the chain quests for either dungeons, you can enter Condemned Island starting at L86 with the purchase of a Black Market Condemned Island Ticket from Black Marketeer Hal in Heirloom Peninsula (531, 660). The tickets are 200g each.
Keep in mind, each ticket is only good for one run so once you leave the dungeon you will need another ticket to get back inside.
If you choose not to do the main quests for either of the normal dungeons and do not want to pay for the tickets for Condemned Island, you can be patient and wait until L88 to do Mutated Forbidden Temple (aka MFT) for the Ultimates as well. Forbidden Temple's main quest is much easier and shorter than both Condemned Island and Blazing Kaslow so it is a good alternative, not to mention that MFT is done by many of those who are leveling, so you can farm for your Ultimate while working on getting to 90 or 100.
How to alch Ultimates and how they work
Formulas, which are dropped in the above mentioned dungeons, require just the formula itself and Mysterious Energy Shard x 250 when you alch them at any Alchemy NPC. They have a 100% chance of success so no Blessed Alchemy Clover (BAC) is needed when creating these Ultimates.
Note: Ultimates are non-tradeable and the finished products for them are also non-tradeable!
Once you have made the final product, you can right-click on the item and you will now have a new skill! Once you have acquired the new skill, you can easily upgrade them by talking to the Skills NPCs in each of the major cities and upgrade them you would a normal skill (by reaching the correct levels and having the right amount of gold in your bag).
