The book switcher is an Invention device in the Dwarven technology tree that allows the user to switch between different spellbooks, regular prayers and the ancient curses. It is consumed on use and can only be used in safe areas, such as banks.

Discovering this device requires the player to have the blueprint unlocked from the Dwarven technology tree, and level 60 Invention. To unlock a blueprint in a tier, at least one blueprint in the previous tier must be unlocked (though it doesn't have to be researched). Success in creating the blueprints earns 32,284.5 Invention experience.

The Magic parts used to make this cost around 5,882.35 if disassembling Body runes. The Spiritual parts cost around 24,302.52 if disassembling Rune minotaur pouches.
