The Mage is the class which specializes in offensive magic
Dragon Quest VII

Mage is a vocational class in the Dragon Quest series.

Mages specialise in casting destructive spells, but performs poorly at close combat. They can also use certain field spells to help the party in its adventures. The Mage is given powerful magical abilities when leveled fully, including Puff! and Kaboom. The Mage also has the Hocus Pocus spell introduced in Dragon Quest II, which has a large menu of possible random effects: some very good, some very bad. Though Mages have high Intelligence, they are physically frail and cannot equip heavy weapons such as swords, axes, spears, or heavy armour. It is best to keep them in the back lines.
