Making the Perfect Mage Pure
This guide contains information on how to train your account so that he/she will have the most effective stats in the wildy for mages.
Mage is one of the most feared skills. Mage completely dominates the wilderness from combats 3 through 30. I myself have several mage hybrids, ranging from combats 27-84. Mages should train their mage levels in the following ways:
1-25 mage: For mages, you can always go wildy pking. In fact, it can be fun if you have team. Just bring mind runes, an appropriate staff, and any other runes. Bank when you can cast a new spell. For those that just want to get to higher mage levels quickly, I recommend going to varrock sewers with weakens and curses. Keep weakening rats until you have many are all trying to attack you at once . The level 1 rats won’t do any damage. Make sure your auto retaliate is off. However, make sure you occasionally go and gain hits xp somehow.
10 hits lvls and 25 mage means you could get 1 hit if you walked into wildy. When you are able to cast curse, do so (it doesn’t matter if your weakens and curses fail, you still get xp). Ignore people when they walk up to you and make fun of you because you are “too weak to kill rats”. At any point, you may want to consider doing the “imp catcher” or “witch’s potion” quests. If it will take time to accumulate body runes for curses, do the quests. If you already have the sufficient runes, the quests will exhaust your time.
26-35: Train at the varrock sewers across the river. There are skeletons that are unable to attack you there. You could also train at the barbarian village. There are tables that you can mage across.
50+: Train at lesser demons. The problem is that this training spot is so heavily favored by both rangers and meleers that it can become crowded. There is a spot between some stalagmites and a corpse (there are three barriers forming a triangle) where lessers can VERY rarely touch you. Therefore, it is not required to bring too much food.
Note that since runes can be expensive, it would be smartest not to use your strongest spell when training; most of the time, I would use fire strike**
Prayer usually doesn’t appear to make a drastic difference for mages. However, mage prayer can always be useful if you hybrid with range (if you get 45 prayer, you can use the range pray, mage pray, all three protection prayers, and much more). In fact, a mage should never consider getting 43 pray because 45 prayer is more useful at little cost.
