I am a level 18 Red Mage, and in most of the parties I find myself in, I stick solely to my mage duties, and hardly ever melee. Does this equipment seem alright for that purpose?
Main: Yew Wand +1 (+4INT/+4MND)
Ammo: Happy Egg
Head: Brass Hairpin (+10MP)
Neck: Justice Badge (+3MND)
Body: Bastokan Harness (+2MP)
Hands: Bastokan Mufflers/Zealot's Mitts (+2MP)/(+5MP/+3MND/-2INT)
Rings: 2x Eremite's Rings/2x Saintly Rings (+4INT/+4MND)
Earrings: 2x Onyx Earrings
Back: Mist Silk Cape (+1MND)
Waist: Friar's Rope (+5MP/+1MND)
Legs: Windurstian Slops (+4MP)
Feet: Light Soleas (Currently Farming for Garrison Boots)
Food: Apple Pies (+25MP/+3INT)
This gives me a total of +55 MP, +11 INT, and +18 MND (+1 to INT and MND once I get the Garrison Boots). I can't seem to find anything better than this for the next 10 or so levels, so it should last me a while. The question is, is it a bad idea to focus solely on mage gear and ignore meleeing completely, or should I buy gear that enables me to melee if the need comes? I am open to all constructive suggestions. Thanks in advance.
