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 up to 20 custom characters (including numbers) and lets you move any desired amount of spaces forward from 4 to 23 (at the cost of losing characters if you choose below 23.)
