    tbh the options are bad for mages like very bad.

    You might s well go spear barring Zeus (lol), or Basic attack mages but even then they do well with it.

    I have no idea how we got onto the lack of magic pen from proposed magic basic attack boots, but pen options are kind of tough. NOBODY uses Obsidian Shard that I've seen, and Spear is only good on mages with a multi-hit skill (or Guardians willing to sacrifice tank). Void has a limit to its usefulness, and Demonic can be used by very few mages because mage boxing is generally garbage. Even Chronos and Ao can't outbox an Assassin; only Freya has any chance of that.

    That's cause Obsidian shard passive doesn't do good without some other pen in the build. To use it at best you should buy 2 pen items (shard plus another) but mage pen options don't really allow for it without losing too much (unlike physical pen distribution)

    Obsidian shard +spear of magus is a bad combo. As it is now, no item sinergise well with shard.

    % pen applies after other pen, so if you use Spear and Shard together, you weaken Shard's effect with Spear.

    Not exactly, the order is % shred, # shred, % pen, # pen.
