Warrior def are very annoying to other pkers because of their defense. Fortunately for mages, they do not hit high def and has no importance for mages, since they usually hit anyway. Standard armor rune rune fully understands and chain instead of rune plate body in case they have not dragon slayer quest. Rune scimitars are the most common weapons for them, but long swords have a better chance of hitting the opponent. Def bring some noobs rune 2-hands to do the combo. Amulet of strength, defense, or the power is recommended. I recommend adamant armor because its very cheap compared to runes and done much def. Mages cannot very well against categorical versus rune, even if they continue to strike. It is recommended to also bring the body armor as leather range so they can get defense against mage.
