I didn't have sigils until i was nearly 200 but i never needed them because i was never out of combat long enough for them to do much good. For energy regen i always used hero lixes which are cheap (500g-1k)
I found it invaluable to have a lux neck the gives a shield skill (currently using preceptor ammy). That combined with e-shield means you can take alot of dmg without feeling a thing. Very rarely had to use restos because of that combo.
Also dont kill 4 star mobs, they are not worth the headache, they can be killed but you have to time it right and even still...things can go awry. 1 and 2 star mobs die in 2-3 hits (or 1 with i nice crit) and 3 stars are not bad to deal with as long as you can get a shield up before or during the fight
Skipping 4*'s is what I did for most of my time leveling, but with a mages DPS if you can kill them they can be quite a nice reward XP wise.
It really just comes down to gameplay I would argue. For some they want to be a bit tankier, donning a shield and e shield with some higher vit might be more their style. I played full focus from 160 to end game, so I went a different route.
Back on track, this definitely works as a strat for easily leveling a mage, I've done it, others have done it, and it works well enough
