I'm level 17 mage and have completed Winterhold main quest since a while ago.

Where can I find other mage or magic related questlines?

In the Dragonborn DLC, the Tel Mithryn quests are mostly mage-related. Lore-wise, this is because Neloth, which is related to and gives most of the quests, is a wizard lord from House Telvanni, one of the Great Houses of Morrowind. House Telvanni is comprised mainly of mages.

I completed the Winterhold College questline but after a while when I came back, speaking to Tolfdir (if I remember correctly) reveals more quests with some magical rifts opening up in the world due to the earlier events with the Eye and so on.

I haven't continued on this path myself but go back and talk with the people at the college after some time and you might find more quests after you've become arch mage.

    They might be RADIANT quests though, ie. auto-generated. The Companions seems to be giving me such quests now, with memorable titles such as "Escaped Prisoner". Nov 24, 2011 at 11:19

    Quite possible. The quest details were however connected to the "Eye of Magnus" effects on the world so I figured it was some kind of continuation of this path...

    So there aren't actually anymore mage related questlines? In case that's a bit sad...

How about the Forbidden Legend quest about re-uniting arch mage Gauldur's amulet? You can also test your mettle against Shalidor's Maze in Labrynthian - it's not a marked quest, but in lore terms was how arch mages used to be selected. There are also the ritual quests for unlocking the most powerful spells from each school, and Arniel's Endeavour (which comes in several parts).


Go to all the cities and talk to the Court Wizards/Mages. They can give you quests.

Also try out the quests for the Daedric Princes. Maybe you can fit some of them in your mage or magic related quests.

(And if you really like mages and magic, try out this mod: Midas Magic ;) )


The mission "Blood on the Ice" should be a good one for you. Talk to the court mage in Windhelm. That quest can lead to the Necromancer's Amulet.


There is a short quest in Darklight Tower near Riften. It leads to one of the only mage followers I can think of.


If you're looking to improve your mage skill, you dont really need mage related quests. If you want to improve upon your mage skill, all you need to do is use spells on any quest. That will improve them just as much as any mage quest would.The only advantage to mage-related quests is that you will sometimes find amulets or staffs.


You can always go to college of winter hold and go to the library for retrieving book quests for that surly old Orc.


Try the Sanguine's rose quest you can start It after level 14 in any majour city inn/pub


Just do college of winterhole new storys will open up in whiterun
