Mages, also called Ability Power Carry or APC, deals strong burst AP damage or consistent AP damage per second. They are usually played in the middle lane and sometimes as a support.
Mages have the subclass Artillery Mage which have long range heavy hitting abilities. At the other end of the spectrum are Battle Mages which have short range AP DPS which are played almost like Fighters. And there is the Burst Mage in the middle which have short range burst damage AP abilities which makes them move and play like Assassins.
The best Mages are strong at all stages of the game and are equally effective at 1v1 duels and team fights.
Mages are great against Marksmen or ADCs because they cannot survive their combos, in fact, the abilities of mages and their ultimates in particular should be reserved against the enemy’s ADC. They are also excellent against Fighters because they have longer range or better mobility than them.
