Strategies[edit | edit source]

  • Be sure to Compose or otherwise gain Library Card and Platypus if you get a chance as they are 2 of the strongest items for this class. The former lets you buy many cheap Books for a ton of letters and spaces and isn't even consumed, so you can do so multiple times. The latter lets you get 5 spaces and 10 characters of your choice (including numbers.)
  • Destroying Glass Items for Broken Glass is an easy way for creating a blank.
  • Words of Power won't refresh unless you spell one of the available words, so you may want to spell those as often as possible, to cycle through more words.
  • The most frequent letters for all the Words of Power spells are ELON.
  • You have to make the decision, how generously you want to be with spending blanks. If the class talent is active, you can save up blanks for creating artifacts. If you don't hope to get talents, you may as well spend them, to create more items and Words of Power.
  • Wordsmith has synergy with the OOO reference event in particular.
    • Easy way of obtaining an orb from Princess Bubblegum.
    • Prism of OOO has 2 spaces in it for generating blanks.
