The mage's book is a book held in the shield slot, requiring 60 Magic to wield. It is tied with the ancient wyvern shield for the second-best Magic attack bonus in the shield slot, behind the arcane spirit shield. However, unlike those items, it provides no Melee or Ranged defensive bonuses.
It is purchased from the Mage Training Arena for 500 Telekinetic, 550 Alchemist, 6000 Enchantment, and 500 Graveyard pizazz points, making it the most expensive reward available from the Mage Training Arena minigame. Though a very slow process, the cost of the runes and staves needed for the required pizazz points will bring in a very large profit.
