So I'm level 13 Mage, and I swear I'm still using equipment from the first few levels. I'm not finding any drops and the quests don't seem to give anything out, do I have to buy better equipment? I just don't feel like I'm getting much better as I level.
Where do I go to upgrade Mage equipment?
You should be finding some items dropped by enemies - also, when I played as a mage, I made sure to specialize as an Arcane Warrior, which is basically a mage who can also tank and use swords... if you do that, you can use a sword found in the temple where you find the Urn of Sacred Ashes, designed for Arcane Warriors, which doubles as a magic staff... I believe it's called Spellweaver.
Colf is thinking of Wonders of Thedas in Denerim, but I don't know how good the mage robes are. You might want to try some mods from Dragon Age Nexus. Improved Atmosphere should help with your problem. I also know that when you go to the Alienage, some Tevinter mages there drop some nice robes. And for Morrigan, a side quest that you get in the Circle of Magi culminates in a decent robe, but only she can wear it.
Check out the Wonders of Thedas. They have some badass robes and a bunch of other magical shit too for you to stock up on. Personally, I found I didn't even have to buy Lyrium potions, they're all over the damn place.
Anyway, by the time I faced the Archdemon with my mage I had some seriously badass robes on. I can't remember what kind they were though, or I could totally be a big help here.
