    I'm looking for advice in both the short term and long term for companions as I approach endgame, specifically for mages but also just in general. My general understanding is that for physical teams "peta" items are the best I would assume that white candle and status effects are best for healers/supports, but I have no clue for mages outside of Bewitching Bow. Is that just the best mage item or am I missing something big that replaces it down the line?

    This is my current "main" team and what they use:
    Bahl: Bow of Genji
    Snaip: Skullsplitter
    Senala: Bewitching Bow
    Jennish^: Orichalcum Rod (reliable for MZ farming, considering trying to get another Bewitching Bow for other tasks)
    Schweiz: King (still need a reliable icebind for MZ7)
    Gego: White Candle

    Other notables:
    Golem
    Masamune (not sure if it is good but currently use it on Mac)
    Trident (may work one up for Mac/Yukken if nothing better is found)
    Lunar Bow (use it on Yukken currently but probably want something better)
    Dracuan Knife (?????)
    Shadowy Rod (sometimes use it on my healers)
    King/Faerie/Golem Chronicles (seems to unreliable for MZ farming at 50% maxed)
    Zack/Lani (as bad as they look on paper?)
    Killer Bow (could evolve it if I find that there is nothing better to strive for)

    I guess at the end of the day my question is, "Do I settle for 1 BoG, 2 SS, and 3 BB with some utility items for specific situations or are there better items for me to shoot for?"

    You got it. Bewitching Bow is a good Otomo for mages. It's better than Orichalcum Rod, as it stacks. A better one is Mog, which can only be obtained in the Moebius collab event. Silver said a few days ago, there is a chance this event may come back in december.

    A good decision for mages are the Axiom and Holy dragons. You can get them in the dragon fights against PDK and RDK.

    Last but not least: Sorcery shield. Gives + 80 matk.

    For dps charas like Bahl, S'naip etc. try to get Peta otomos like Ragnarok, Grand Ragnarok, Celestial Envoy from the last story collab event, Rune, Grand Rune, Bow of Genji.
