You are getting 7 or 8 points per minute. I'm getting points a lot faster than that - at least 12 points per minute. As long as I can stop myself spazzing out (I get sloppy with the mouse after many repetitions), and as long as the zones are loading quickly for me, I can get 15 or more points per minute.

To make it as fast as possible, I re-arrange my UI specifically for doing this - I move the district selection so it's close to the inventory slot where my alcohol is, and also close to where the "you sure you want to switch districts" prompt will popup. Move the district selection back when you want to return to normal play.

I also only check that the window is still open, every 5 repetitions. I keep a mental count of what I expect my points to be, and after 5 rezoning cycles, I check that my actual points match my mental count.

Nice. The zones aren't always loading quickly for me.

I didn't think of moving the districts near this last one, but this will most certainly reduce time.

Since it has been quite busy in Boreal station I've been only checking my progress once in 10-20 repetitions, I just look whether other people are still zoning or using alcohol.

I got used to using 33 lvl5 alcohols and 1 lvl1 alc to get to 100 drunken minutes that way I can check easily whether the zone is still active.

Overall very nice tips, I'll certainly try your methods. Thank you very much.

I am out of Spiked Eggnogs and Aged Dwarven Ales. The trick doesn't seem to work with 1 Flask of Firewater + 3 normal Ales. I only get 1 minute of it. Why so?

Edit:
Disregard that. I didn't know Firewater gives 3 minutes of drunkard.

I'd just like to say thanks to Yishin, Syrax, Witchblade, Velana, ReiNaruto (and anyone else I missed) for posting the windows you found - you helped me and many others a lot. I got about 4000 points over the last few days.

Unfortunately I'm out of booze, out of money, and still about 3800 points short of maxing the title. But I'm happy that I made such good progress in such a short time.

Some small question: Isn't this punished by ArenaNet with closing Accs or giving Acc-Points? Would be interesting to know before I maybe try it out

I don't think it is punished. I have never heard of anyone being punished/banned from this anyway. I thought they went against bots and platinum e-bayers, not the ones that is activily drinking. I don't know thou.

sorry for being ignorant but am i missing something?
i dont understand why people buy 1minute ales at all.

if say, 1 minute alcohol is 110g. so you need 5 to get to level 5 drunkenness therefore ~550g while people are selling level 5 alcohol for ~450g
aren't you 'wasting' those first 2, 1minute alcohols to begin with for only 3 minutes of drunkenness? therefore losing a net of 100g/3minute drunkenness?

granted there is maybe a larger abundance of level 1 alcohol... but should i stop buying level 1's for level 5's ?

Buy level 5 alchohols if you're zoning.

If you're going to be drinking in real time, then the 1point stuff is better. as you only waste the first 2 points getting drunk, and then get 1minute per 1pt alcohol until you stop being drunk. If you're staying drunk for an hour thats only 62 points for 60 minutes.

With the 5point alcohol you're always losing 2 points on getting drunk, or by going over the 5 level cap. If you're staying drunk for an hour, thats 100 points for 60 minutes.

Ok: Port Sledge -> Witman; Amnoon ->Port Sledge (both Europe, English) open and close routinely. Use with caution :-)
