    I would caution line of thought that there are two equivalent paths. Luk mages are strictly inferior to their lukless counterparts, and not by an insignificant margin. If we take Issac's estimate that luk mages are ~16% weaker at level 16x, that is still quite a significant difference. It would take quite a bit of funds(or levels) to make up for that difference, and luk mages will struggle quite a bit more to get those important 1hit KOs on certain important mobs.While it is true that when you get to the really high levels luk vs lukless wont matter too much (as you'll have the 1 hit KOs anyways), going the path of a luk mage still puts you at a significant disadvantage.
    Rather than there being 2 equivalent paths, its more like there is an optimal and sub-optimal path, with the latter giving a significant but not completely crippling disadvantage.

    I used a point of reference for stats required to 1 hit petris at a set level, accounting for almost the same gear and subtracted any differences between a LUKless and a LUK mage.

    Assumptions:
    LUK mages can afford the same gear as LUKless.
    LUK mages try to minimise their LUK
    MW10
    Elemental Staves were lv168 and required 168 LUK - was wrong lol but too lazy to change it since it wouldn't make much of a difference.

    That said, LUK mages should lose out at levels 35, 40, 43, 64, 70, and 130 where LUKless mages make up for any difference in weapon and LUK mages approach LUKless in all other levels. A LUKless mage at 200 should have 1500 magic (not including echo). 130 less from weapon seems minimal at that point.

    I encourage OP to wash out his LUK if he wants damage but it's really up to him to decide.

    I'm playing a LUKless mage, I have 5 base LUK and 40 LUK total from equips, which is enough to equip some nice mage robes, gloves, and shoes.
