The SendingStone review

Mage armor is a useful spell for low-level wizards and sorcerers who lack natural armor proficiency. While it provides a base AC of 13 plus the caster's Dexterity modifier, this may not be enough against higher level enemies. Additionally, the spell only lasts for 8 hours, meaning it must be recast frequently. However, it has a quick casting time of only 1 action and requires only a piece of cured leather as a material component. Overall, Mage Armor is a good investment for spellcasters looking to increase their survivability in combat.

Mage Armor is D&D (Dungeons & Dragons) 5th edition content, but other TTRPGs may have their own version such as a Mage Armor Pathfinder edition. Want to use Mage Armor in a VTT (virtual tabletop)? Try out SendingStone for free today!
