    Shout-out to Rayney_ for his "List of Standard Sword Builds"! His guide inspired me to make a Mage version of it. Tomes will be listed as ____(name of tome) if it's an especially generic tome. Otherwise, the full name of the tome will be used. I will also cover some more out-there builds I wouldn't see in the Arena. So, without further ado, here. we. GO.

    Weapons and skills taken from Gamepress.

    Meta Mage and (insert most hated class here) Murderer
    Weapon: ____raven
    Skill: Ignis

    A Slot: Triangle Adept
    B Slot: ____breaker(I recommend Bowbreaker)
    Candidates: Defensive mages with low attack and serviceable speed.

    Buff Hoarder
    Weapon: ____blade
    Skill: Draconic Aura / Moonbow

    A Slot: Fury 3 / Life and Death / Death Blow 3 / Swift Sparrow 2
    B Slot: Desperation
    Candidates: Exceptionally offensive mages who believe that "The best defense is a good offense".

    Everlasting Fog (Debuffing Green Mage)
    Weapon: Spectral Tome
    Skill: Flexible

    A Slot: Fury 3
    B Slot: ____ Seal
    C Slot: Spd Smoke 3
    S Slot: Atk Smoke 3
    Candidates: Defensive Mages that will only be mediocre with a full offensive build. Spreading around -5 to Atk and Spd, plus - 7 to one stat/ -5 to two stats is quite strong, if a little excessive.

    Healers? What healers? (Cleric Non-red Mage)
    Weapon: Dancer's ____
    Skill: Flexible

    A Slot: Flexible
    B Slot: Flexible
    C Slot: Breath of Life 3
    S Slot: Breath of Life 3
    Candidates: Non Dark Aura Linde, or any mage, really. Who can say no to spreading around 21 hp healing? Though in general, defensive mages are preferred.

    You should wait on staves until after this next update which buffs them.
