Skeleton Mage is an Enemy in Dragon's Dogma.

Overview[]

Skeleton Mages make use of four of the five Archmagicks; they do not have access to Holy Magicks. They are oft seen in a decayed version of the Hide Armor, with a hooded version of the Mahogany Cape, carrying a Wooden Staff. What else they once wore as men has long since rotted away.

Tactics[]

Pawn Bestiary Knowledge[]

For the foe knowledge flags for Skeleton Mage see the skeleton section in the Bestiary.
QUOTE DD2
Skeletons are made from the bones of men, given false life by some evil power, but among their numbers are the remains of former magick users. These are the skeleton magi.

Just as regular skeletons, their heights typically reach between five and six feet. Most drape around their bones rotting robes and clutch crumbling wands—relics, perhaps, of their former lives.

They act in accordance to the orders they are given by their summoners, just as regular skeletons do, and never move of their own volition. However, while they have forgotten their own selves, their powers remain intact and they are able to employ a number of magicks..

Any creature identified as an enemy will be bombarded with these magicks and skeleton magi can even use auxiliary magicks upon their fellows to improve their standing in battle. Still, they do not act as a group commanded by any leader and such support is only given out of the instinctual drive to follow their given orders.

There are up to 8 Skeleton Magi summoned by a Wight across the river from the Abbey at night.

"Skeleton mage!"

"There, Master! Skeleton magi!"

"If we kill it now, we needn't spill a drop of our own blood."

"Clubs and maces are a skeleton's bane!"

"A monster stalks the passage ahead."

"Move, afore its spell hits!"

"Stop its incantation!"

"We musn't allow that spell to be cast!"

"They rampage indiscriminately!"

"Maintain a careful distance!"

"We must stay calm! One at a time..."
