Although this game is a great mix of humor and seriousness, sometimes I feel guilty playing it. Like that moment where I realized "Holy crap, I CAN'T HIRE ANY MORE KIDS?!... Oh lord, what have I become?"
You guys, the trick to this game is just typing as many words as you can that use your chamber letters. Remember that without a jade, blank shots (shots without chamber letters) only do a piddly one damage, (I still like to go for the longest word I can with a jade) yet irons can deal anywhere from five to 25. If you have a hard time coming up with words, simply change the letters around in your boiler. (You have to have between 25 and 60) I have a hard time coming up with words with higher level letters, so I only use letters that are level one through three. Although, I'm only on level 40. The trick to beating the game is using your chamber letters, not just typing whatever.
Also, "originality" (11) is a good jade word.
I'm at day 140, but I'm actually on casual mode, so that's probably why I'm being so successful. My bowgun has 95 attack and 134% Vs. Armor. I'd normally use the long bow, but I got the wind bow so that it's not as tough to get mosquitos. (I shouldn't really be trying to get them anyway, but meh. I like killing them and watching them have as much blood as a human knight) The rapid bowgun has 6/sec for speed and 40 attack.
I have a great build. I'm a noble with maxed bowmaster. I've modded a bowgun specifically for armored enemies, (3 Level 3 Anti-armor) a wind bow with fire rate mods to easily defeat any air enemies including mosquitos, and a rapid bowgun with a +Rate, +Damage, and +Accuracy, all level 3. The awesome thing about the rapid bowgun is that each reforge increases attack and rate of fire.
I do bosses a lot different compared to others. I give the team "stats" (attack stats, essentially) and the boss an HP bar. The team gets an attack every time I try to do something to kill them. Honestly, more bosses should be like this! What good is a boss if you can't feel the glory of having killed it?
