Mage's book detail.png

A mage's book is a book in the shield slot, requiring 60 Magic to wield. It is tied with the ancient wyvern shield for the third-best Magic attack bonus in the shield slot, behind the arcane spirit shield and the Elidinis' ward (f), but it has no Melee or Ranged defensive bonuses. The mage's book is popular among combat pures because there is no required Defence level.

It can be obtained by playing the Mage Training Arena minigame for:

Amount Task
500 Telekinetic pizazz points
550 Alchemist pizazz points
6,000 Enchantment pizazz points
500 Graveyard pizazz points

It is the most expensive reward available from the Mage Training Arena minigame. It takes 11.5 hours on average to acquire the mage's book, playing efficiently and using the best spells with the necessary staves yields a profit of 3,477,713
