===Strategies=== * Being able to determine when people are going to die is important to get SP and raise your minions faster; this is especially important early game when trying to get your minion cycles up and running. Pay attention when players get in a duel, get inside of [[Schrödinger's Box]], go inside the [[Pyramid]], have [[AIDS]] or untreated [[Malaria]] or are [[Dehydrated]], etc. * Situationally, it can be a good strategy to kill yourself with [[ACME Rocket]], [[ACME TNT]], [[Dark Sacrifice]] or launching yourself with the [[Catapult]] while draining your own soul. You'll die, but you can kill others/move forward/apply Debuffs to enemies/gain Life Insurance/lose Diseases in addition to gaining 1 SP. * If you think you're going to die soon and you can't prevent it (e.g. you're Dehydrated, have AIDS, have Jinxed Jewel Of Death or [[Pipe Bomb]], are about to be the target of [[Diss Card: Death]], etc.), drain your own soul. * Specter's [[Ethereal Gem]] can be combined with [[Boots]] or [[Gloves]]. Ethereal Gloves can be used to revive yourself, esp. with a low cost Charged Light Wand from [[The Magic Shop]]. Spirit Slippers can be used for sprinting. * Ethereal Gem can be used on your [[ACME Rocket]], [[ACME TNT]], [[Tome Of Hellfire]], [[Genesis Device]], [[Defibrillator]], [[Hellpriest]] or [[Charged Light Wand]]/[[Orb]]/[[Staff]] with Revive. (Beware that the Ethereal enchantment will prevent recharging at The Magic Shop if you don't have a means to remove it (i.e. with Enchant or Balm Of Anubis.)) * If you have a Skinning Knife but are in need of Boots or Gloves, consider [[Tractor Beam]]ing a [[Cow]] out of another player's inventory or drinking [[Liquid Luck]]. * An early game Rotting Corrupter is worth creating in decently long games. Summoning this minion before summoning a Specter will let you delay using your Wildcard for Boots/Gloves/Skinning Knife while storing up SP; there is often pressure to use your first Wildcard to avoid wasting a Gem if the Specter is your first minion, though the Corrupter has potential to bypass this waste. * Near the endgame, it is often worthwhile to unsummon a minion for SP; this can notably allow you to get more Ethereal Gems, to remove Denied with Spectral Cleric, or to knock a player back/give them Defective Dice when they're about to win. * In a Team Game, you can hand out Ethereal Gems to every team member using Command Undead with your Specter. * If the Adventure Time reference event is chosen, you can get an Orb for use with Shimmering Soul. Also, the [[Enchiridion]] casts Wormhole and provides all 5 [[Magic Crystals]], which can be used with Shimmering Soul. [[Black Dragonling]] can provide Magic Crystals for use with Shimmering Soul. * If the Dr. Who reference event is chosen, you can gain Boots and Gloves repeatedly without use of a Wildcard, so your Specter's strength is more secure. Shady Dealer being available through the Arcane Portal makes Skeleton Knight more valuable. However, Mystic Shop being available through the Arcane Portal as well as the reward for completing Dr. Who's quest can make Ethereal Gloves more accessible to non-Necromancer players in longer games. * If the Board Game Of Thrones reference event is chosen, you can gain Boots and Gloves by becoming a Stark or become a Targaryen to have some sort of defense for your Boots and Gloves against Saboteur. If you become a Targaryen, you can also periodically get a chance to obtain a Magic Crystal from [[The Dragon]], and if you somehow gain an [[Orb]], it can be charged with [[Ancient Dragon Claw]], which will have synergy with Shimmering Soul. There's also an ever so slight chance to steal a Black Dragon Egg which will grant Magic Crystals once hatched. However, [[Ring Of Spell Deflecting]] can hinder your magic usage if you are using Shimmering Soul. Also, other players can become a Stark to receive a Wolf which can Silence you. * If the Interdimensional Portal Gun reference event is chosen, Chilling Ghost can prevent losing spaces while getting the max reward from Fantasy World, while Cleansing Spirit can remove Diabetes gained from Candy World. On Doggo World, if you have Ethereal Gloves and a revive, you can successfully steal a Doge and a Cognition Amplifier. * [[Rod Of Asclepius]] and [[Sir Lancelot's Ring Of Dispel]] synergize well with Zombies and Drain Soul respectively. Many other Artifacts (esp. [[The Grim Reaper's Scythe]]) can help with building up Soul Power.
