WEYTWUT ("Wait, What?") is one of the Glyphs you can find in a game of Desktop Dungeons. When used, this Glyph teleports the character to a random tile in the dungeon. This Glyph may spawn randomly in any dungeon and does not need to be unlocked.

Usage

WEYTWUT is cast by clicking on it. The character will be immediately teleported to a random space in the dungeon that is unoccupied by a monster.

Each use of WEYTWUT costs 6 Mana, except for the Wizard for whom it costs only 5 Mana, and the Berserker for whom it costs 8.

Effect

When WEYTWUT is used, the game first randomly chooses one empty tile from anywhere in the dungeon. It then teleports the character to that tile.

Any empty tile may be randomly selected as the target of the teleport. "Empty" here means any tile your hero can freely move through. This excludes wall tiles, or tiles containing monsters or plants, but including Altars, Shops, or tiles containing Glyphs or blood-stains, etc. Note that this includes unexplored tiles! The character might even be teleported into a part of the dungeon you cannot currently reach (for example, a rear blocked on all sides by other monsters). As long as the target tile itself is empty, it is a valid choice for the spell.

Rarely, the game might teleport the character to the same tile it is already standing on. This is still considered a fully-successful use of the Glyph, and so will cost you Mana and trigger relevant effects as normal. Verification needed

Availability

WEYTWUT is unlocked from the moment you create a new Profile. It has a certain chance to appear in each dungeon you play, supposedly the same chance as any other unlocked Glyph (though this has yet to be proven conclusively).

General Strategy

The uses of WEYTWUT are limited. The best use is if the character is trapped in a part of the dungeon by monsters it cannot yet defeat, and other Glyph like PISORF and ENDISWAL are unavailable, or prohibited (for example, a worshipper of The Earthmother would not wish to use ENDISWAL). Use of the WEYTWUT Glyph has the potential to place you beyond these monsters so you may explore more of the dungeon, though it has the potential also to place you within the same confined area.

The best use is to gain Piety from Tikki Tooki or Jehora Jeheyu (see below).

Spell Combos

Due to its highly-specialized usefulness, there is no benefit to pairing WEYTWUT with any other spell. If you wish to keep WEYTWUT at all, it's usually just an extra ability you store for emergencies, if they arise, regardless of what other Glyphs you may or may not have.

WEYTWUT and the Gods

Several Gods in the game have various opinions about the use of WEYTWUT - they may favour it or reject it, depending on their own particular creeds.

Tikki Tooki

The Trickster God appreciates mobility in his subjects, and considers WEYTWUT as a means to that end. As such, he will reward you +10 Piety point for each use of the WEYTWUT Glyph. You can build Piety quite quickly this way.

Taurog

As with any other Glyph, Taurog will penalize you -5 Piety points every time you use WEYTWUT.

Binlor Ironshield

Binlor is also averse to the use of spells, and will inflict a penalty of -1 Piety point per each use of WEYTWUT, as with all other Glyphs (except ENDISWAL).

Mystera Annur

Mystera Annur, being the patron of magic, will give +1 Piety point for using WEYTWUT, as with every other Glyph, unless the Faith boon is activated, in which case she will give +2 Piety.

Jehora Jeheyu

Jehora Jeheyu believes that random teleportation is a fine display of chaos, and as such will reward you +5 Piety points for every successful cast of WEYTWUT.
