Welcome to my magic equipment guide! In this guide I will tell about all the notable magic gear and weapons you can get in game. I will not go in too deep in how to get certain items, most of them, especially the custom ones, are on our custom items guides which you can find on this wiki. I expect most readers of this guide have at least little knowledge of gear from (old-school)RuneScape and know that blue wizard robes are the minimal magic items you can get, while mystic is already a lot better. I will not include items like this in my guide, but I will sometimes note them as a benchmark, and try to include as many notable items as possible. I will go through various sets, stand-alone pieces and weapons. Too much information? Scroll to the bottom of each section to find a TL;DR.
I will separate sets and independent items in this guide. Note that for most sets, you don't require a full set to have the bonuses shown, unless stated otherwise!

Ninja is a RuneRealm custom added set that requires 70 magic to wear. It is considered one of the strongest magic sets in the game. It does not offer very high offensive and defensive stats, but having a full set equipped increases your magic speed by 1 tick. This effect makes it incredibly strong and used a lot in many situations where defence is less of a necessity, or in combination with blood spells, to heal yourself rapidly.

Zuriel's robes sets
Zuriel's robes is a custom added RuneRealm set and can provide the best magic stats stats in game. Zuriel's consists of a hat, robe-top and bottom. Zuriel's comes in 6 different tiers.

You can create higher tiers by upgrading the base tiers. 3 base tiers creates a tier 1 piece. 3 tier 1 pieces creates a 2 tier piece. You need 3 skirts to create a higher tier skirt, you can't mix pieces. A total of 243 base tier armour pieces are required to create a Tier 5 piece, making it one of the most tedious items to get.
