How do you level up the Mages Guild skill-line?


To level up the MagesGuild skill-line in the Elder Scrolls Online you have to collect lorebooks. The lorebooks are placed all over Tamriel in specific locations.However, in contrary to the MagesGuild skill-line itself, the skills are leveled up by gaining experience from killing any monsters or quests. The collecting lorebooks requirement only counts towards the level of the skill-line itself, but not the skills.

The damage numbers of the skills that you see below are used for comparison. The numbers are based on a naked level 50 character without any skills, passives, attributes and champion points allocated. Your damage numbers will change depending on what gear, skills, attributes, champion points, enchantments or buffs your character has.
