Basic Information and Statistics

Alternatively you can use:

Note: A Kite Shield [13] has a relatively low DD penalty for a nice amount of AC which could be used if you're looking for more defense.

Strategy and Comments

This is the Advanced Mage Armor set. This set allows for a base AC of [39]. A single Mage could use a Cornuthaum instead of a HoC in order to cast Antimagic Field (AMF) or Dispel Magic (DM) more effectively. The NS is effective against AMF wielding opponents. The BoE is effective if you want to give your DD spells a boost, and also will help with Evasion, but will replace the MCM and has a lower AC ratio. The SB will further boost DD spells, and acts like a Cornuthaum except the bonus are all flat.

Also, one of the CB T-Shirts can be used for an extra AC point.
