Mage Armor is a passive level 56 Arcane mage ability that increases the mage's Mastery, and reduces the duration of all harmful Magic effects used against the mage by 25%. Mastery is increased by 3000 at level 90.

Tips and tactics

  • In PvP, the 25% debuff time reduction can be a life-saver, especially when facing warlocks and priests, since a great deal of their damage comes from damage over time effects and dispellable curses.
