STR Mages use STR as their main stat therefore enabling them to use melee weapons but making their magic attacks weak. STR Mages mainly use their magic to buff themselves and leaving their fighting to melee weapons. Becoming a strong STR Mage is tough but with the help from this guide I will hopefully lead you down a successful path.
