Thank you for the suggestion on Liquid Backerboard. I think that definitely would work if I also wanted perfectly level. There is an ever so slight slope toward joist midspan that may mess with the very liquid SLC. I'll stew on this a few more days but am leaning toward Feather Finish (Henry 549 at HD) since its trowelable.

There are some SLC's that are thixotropic. Those 'move' when agitated, but stay where you put them, enough so that they can be used to build a slope. Sounds like that Henry's product may be one of them.

FWIW, Henry 549 worked really well. Troweled it right onto the subfloor and now all within 1/16:10'. Sets within 20 minutes so had to work fast, but bonded well and no problems drilling rock-on screws through it.

I have a question regarding the layout of my floor tile.

It is a 12x24 ceramic. Manufacturer says maximum stagger is 6". There are two 1/4 (25%) offset patterns. One where the joints look like they go diagonal across the floor, and the other where they match up every other course. My wife seems impartial to either option (at the current moment) and I'm wondering if one pattern is easier to install than another. Any thoughts are appreciated, I've been searching about these variations in 1/4 offset patterns for 12x24 and there seems to be little out there about it.
