Mages can inflict enormous amounts of damage from their wide variety of offensive spells. They are, however, extremely fraile, and can be easily defeated if attacked first. Mages are an advanced class to play, so if you are new to the mud, you might want to try another class first.
Mages study the basic spells in the schools of ILLUSION, ENCHANTMENT, MENTAL, DIVINATION, ALTERATION, CONJURATION, SUMMONING, NECROMANCY, INVOCATION, EVOCATION, and ABJURATION.
After level 30, a Mage may become either a Sorcerer, Archmage or Necromancer.
Mages require a good amount of intelligence.
