Also might not be a bad idea to get more info about this magika absorbing thing, and how you can restore your magika (for free).
Heh, you actually have a lot of questions, you say, but you’ll try to make them fast.
You ask him if his friend Zahrasha lives around here. You’d love to make a new friend, but also admit that you’ve also done things you’re not proud of and wouldn’t want it to reflect poorly on any other Khajiit in town. The wizard says not to worry about that; she lives at the Arcane University far to the northeast of here, just outside the Imperial City. You’ll meet her if you ever make it into the University, though.
You also consult with him for a bit regarding how to safely practice magic. He says that safety isn’t TOO big of a concern for someone of your beginner ability. He suggests simply finding an open area where you can try to get some control over the fires. One usually has to understand the basics before they move on to more advanced spells.
Restoring your magicka will no doubt be your greatest hurdle. Plenty of alchemists sell potions that will restore some, but that can become very expensive. Sometimes you’ll be able to absorb spells cast on you, so you may want to have a non-Atronach friend hit you with a few healing spells in the hopes you’ll take in a few of them. Ayleid wells like the one you found yesterday are your best bet for when your friends are unavailable, he explains (gracefully sidestepping “or if you have no friends”).
Speaking of that Ayleid well, you tell him that you found it while you were on the way to Kvatch. You understand that there is a Mages Guild in every city, but when naming the nearby guildhalls he didn’t menti…
We don’t talk about the Kvatch Mages Guild.
Anyway it’s probably about time you leave, he tells you. There is plenty of work to be done around here and he’s sure you have things to get back to as well. It’s been a pleasure speaking with you and he hopes he’s had a positive impact on your life and get out.
You follow the wizard’s straightforward command.
Overall, that was…
COMPLETELY AWESOME. Wizards are about the coolest thing ever! And now you can make things happen with your mind. At least sort of.
It will totally be super-expensive for you, though, with the whole Atronach thing. For the time being you should probably just focus on employment. But still! You’re a real wizard! This is kind of exciting!
You’ve got about another half an hour to kill. You don’t want to rush her or anything. You understand she’s making some hard decisions about whether it’s even worth being your kind-of-friend.
You should probably find one more place to check out before heading back.
