Mages Guild
Opening Hours 11:00 - 23:00

The Mages Guild was a professional organization, once located throughout Tamriel, that was dedicated to the study and application of magicka and alchemy. Its charter from the Emperor specified that the guild must provide magic services to the public. Anyone could purchase potions, alchemical ingredients, magical items, and a selection of standard spells from the guild. However, training, goods, and services were cheaper for members, and the guild stewards were sometimes able to provide members with work. Furthermore, exclusive services such as spellmaking and enchanting, deemed potentially dangerous to the public at large, were only made available to higher-ranked guild members in good standing.

Most major towns in the Iliac Bay region have a guildhall where spells and magical items are sold. Even non-members can use some of the guild's services, but for full access you must join the guild, which requires fairly good magic skills. Most of the Mages Guild quests involve casting a spell such as open and sleep, protecting the guild, fetching an item, or killing an evil mage. Many of the Mages Guild quests also have you help out or step on the toes of other factions, so tread carefully.

Apparently the level of the player's character determines which quests one can get from the guild, rather than the reputation one may have with it. For example a level 2 character can get any quest which requires a reputation of 21 or less.
