Tiling sloped subfloor

I was about to install 1/4Ē cement board when I realized my floor was pretty sloped. High at the Toilet and sloped down after. I set up a laser and verified it. (Could have figured it out looking at the drywall).

There is also a ridge at the toilet. That will cause seesawing in the 12x24 tile.

Aside from the ridge itís pretty flat (not level).

How can I deal with the ridge? I feel thatís gonna be the big issue.

Also how can I get out the stubborn mortar on the ground? Chipped away with a Bosch hammer and chisel bit for a while. I canít really do that anymore because my neighbor is gonna kill or sue me. (Condo).

Is using custom building products level quick or competing self leveler the best option or is that overkill? Iíve read a flat sloped floor is fine.

Iíve read thatís not easy to get right the first time.

Re: Tiling sloped subfloor

Each salutation causes it's own problem. If you self level, how does that effect the rest of the area. Can you could on at least a transition the same height across the doorway.
Correcting the ridge by building up the corner ans make it a true plane. That will leave the toilet level to deal with.
