Generally, higher-tier Magic equipment is best against Fungal magi. However, expensive, top-tier armour such as seasinger's equipment and ganodermic armour may not be cost-effective at Fungal magi due to their high repair costs. For this reason, offensive armour is recommended above tank armour.
Inventory should include some food or other source of healing, runes for spells, and an emergency teleport. You may also wish to take a Prayer urn for collecting the ashes.
An easy way to get a few safe hits in on the mage is to attack him once, then immediately sprinkle neem oil on the mage. This will give you about three safe hits before the mage starts to attack you.
For high level players, an Aggression potion is highly recommended.
