Can you use mage armor while wearing armor?

No, the rules for both AC and Mage Armor do not allow it.

How does Mage armor work?

You touch a willing creature who isn't wearing armor, and a protective magical force surrounds it until the spell ends. The target's base AC becomes 13 + its Dexterity modifier. The spell ends it if the target dons armor or if you dismiss the spell as an action.

Can you cast mage armor on others?

Yep. Mage Armor is non concentration and has a range of touch (i. e. not a range of self) so the same caster can have mage armor on multiple creatures at once. It will of course cost them 1 level 1 or higher spell slot each time it is cast.

Does mage armor stack with other armor?

Mage Armor and regular armor (full plate, etc.) both provide an armor bonus, so they do not stack. The same can be said for a shield and the spell Shield — they both apply a shield bonus to AC. When they don't stack, you use the higher of the two bonuses.

Does mage armor end when unconscious?

Mage armor doesn't end because its target became unconscious. It continues to apply even WHILE they are unconscious. An unconscious, prone, mage armored target is still four AC points harder to hit than the same target would be if not mage armored.

Is mage armor better than medium armor?

Usually you would have to put on medium armor for this level of protection and it would limit your DEX and you have to be proficient with it to still cast spells. Mage armor gives wizards all the security of being in medium armor and all the comfort of being in their bath robes.

Does mage armor require concentration?

Mage Armor has a duration of 8 hours and is not a concentration spell. This means a wizard can cast it with any remaining spell slots, and it should last throughout the night while the characters sleep.

Does mage armor work with a shield?

Mage armor works with a shield. Shields are grouped with armor in the equipment rules in the Player's Handbook, but various game features distinguish between the armor you wear and a shield you wield.

Do Warlocks get mage armor?

Warlocks don't get Mage armor, except as the invocation. It isn't on their spell list. The invocation itself is kinda silly to waste a slot on. You already have access to Light Armor.

Does the robe of the Archmagi count as armor?

Robe of the Archmagi is a "Wondrous item", and thus, not armor.

Can you cast a mage armor spell on Yourself?

  • The target's base AC becomes 13 + its Dexterity modifier. The spell ends if the target dons armor or if you dismiss the spell as an action. You can cast mage armor on yourself at will, without expending a spell slot or material components.

Why do wizards have to wear Mage armor?

  • Your DM is being ridiculous. Wizards are incapable of wearing armor, and Mage Armor helps them achieve a semblance of defense, at the cost of a spell slot, and that's only if they have a reasonably good Dexterity score. From the PHB, page 202, "Some spells can target only a creature (including you) that you touch."

How long does Mage armor last in RuneScape?

  • Mage armor is a nifty solution presented to these less fortified classes at 1st level. It also lasts for 8 hours, which is the majority of an adventuring day. Since this spell doesn’t require concentration you should be casting this before heading into any sort of adventure where combat is a possibility.

Can you mix Mage armor with Monk defense?

  • They have stated that each character is only able to choose one way to calculate their AC. In your example, your monk could either use the mage armor bonus of 13+Dex OR the monk's unarmored defense of 10+Dex+Wis, but you can't mix and match aspects of the two.
