The Bandosian wild mage is a follower of Bandos encountered during Wilderness Warbands. They primarily attack their targets with magic, using the spell Fire Surge and various abilities. They wield staves but their standard attacks are as fast as they would be with a wand. In addition, they frequently use potent threshold abilities such as Asphyxiate and Wild Magic, and even ultimates such as Omnipower. For this reason they are considered among the deadliest of the monsters at the Bandos camp, behind only their leader, the Bandosian warlord.
Bandosian wild mages are also encountered while doing Treasure Trails. This version is level 119 and may appear at the end of scan or compass clues. It attacks with Earth Surge and the same abilities as the level 84 version, and has no weakness.
The Treasure Trails variant of the Bandosian wild mage has the following drops.

- patch 26 March 2018 (Update):
- Corrected all treasure trail wizards to play a teleport sound when they leave.
- Currently, there is a graphical error that causes the level 84 shaman to punch when he uses his standard attack instead of using the staff animation. This also seems to apply to the Armadylean shaman, but not to the Saradominist thaumaturge or Zamorakian occultist. It also does not apply to the level 119 version encountered during Treasure Trails.
- His staff seems to resemble an earth battlestaff, but green in colour rather than brown, and without the particle effects or the glow at the tips. The mage bandits of the other gods use this staff as well.
