I started playing again for the first time in years.... What are your thoughts on a pure mage in RS now a days?

Depends.
Do you mean a mage pure, with 1 defense and high magic, or do you mean an account that primarily uses magic, but has other combat levels (such as a mage tank, with just magic and defense levels)?

If I wanted to make a new acc I'd make a 3 skiller and try to get a high dungeoneering level. Posted Image
Or if you want to make a pure for pking I'd choose to make a zerker.

If you mean for PKing, pure mages aren't very effective except at really low levels.

Yeah. Even in f2p it's better now-a-days to have a ranger/strength pure hybrid.

The only technical "pure mage" that's at least half effective right now is the Storm of Armadyl prod, but it's a massive pain to make.

Well I have 3 accounts in total, One main, 2 alternative accounts and one of them i'm only training mage out of the combat stats. I thought it would be interesting to try.
My other alt account is a level 3, i'm training random skills on it and using all lamps I get on dungeoneering.

Always interesting to see pures etc.
I was once killed by a guy on a pvp world (back when they were a thing), I thought I could take him because he was a lower combat level than me but it turns out he had a really high magic level, killed me almost instantly.

I once had a level 40 or so guy who had ancients. There are many factors to how well the Mage pure will be.

Depends, but pures that only have one combat skill aren't really effective anymore, except for perhaps pure defence..
