Mage armor

this game seems to be lacking a place to buy decent mage robes. ive been stuck for half the game now with this robe i took of this dead blood mage chick so now ever one thinks im a cross dresser and they don't believe me when I say this is the only good robe i can find.(poeple watching me play the game)

The Reaper's Vestaments Cost like 97gold and need a crapload of magic to use, so they are not a very good choice early. I would personally suggest becoming an Arcane Mage because it lets you use Magic as Strength when equipping gear. It opens up alot of possibilities and allows for a Melee fighting mage. My lvl 16 mage is maxed in Arcane and Spirit Healer, with side talents all pretty much in healing abilities. I hit 75's with a one hand mace(Regular White Damage)+ 17 fire damage from my Fire Weapon Aura + 12 Lightning Damage from two +6 Electricity runes. So all in all my hits are around 100 damage each. If you talent right a mage can "tank" as well or better than any other class due to all of the buffs you can stack on yourself.

Are there any that look good? I only have Morrigan as a mage and I kept her in her robes for the longest time because they looked the best. I now have her in Dalish armor and a funny looking mage cap.
