Red MAGE level 18 equipment - Look okay?Follow

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?

RDM18/BLM15/WHM15

Main: Yew Wand +1 (+4INT/+4MND)
Sub: Aspis
Range: n/a
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.

Way better than I ever did at that level :)
Bonus

As to meleeing / Not meleeing, that is entirely your perogative. The consensus is that this is realy the specific mage's choice. You'll have a slightly harder time soloing me thinks but otherwise no problem.

All I can say is I wish I was that rich at that lv. But anyways, Buy a sword and just switch it in and out between spell casting. While in the dunes I rarely ever gained enough Tp to do a weapon skill so looking back I should of bought/brought a wand with me for spell casting. Right now I'm lv52 Rdm and I switch out gear for spells espically rings. These at times helps spell and sometimes I dont notice a difference though I do when casting Cure with Divine seal with all my +mind gear on. Just remember your 3 parts of 3 different class's and you'll definatly go far.
Good luck and if you need any help post or give me a tell just take out lord and you got me ;)

To me to be a Redmage is to be something beyond a Caster and a Melee'er. I am something that walks between both lines effortlessly that keeps things alive and going. Call it whateva you will but I'll still know I'm Pimp /grin

Actually, that's debatable.

If you find yourself to be nuking a bit more, get a black tunic for the INT. If not, then I'd say go with the hairpin.
