One of the best guilds in Skyrim is the mages guild. You prove yourself, you get in, and learn magic from the master wizards. For a mage playthrough, it’s first place you should visit.
Although, the guilds questline is kinda limited, you can use mods to improve mages guild. Also, there are many magic mods that are adding hundreds of new lore friendly spells to the game. With mods you’ll feel the true mage experience in Skyrim.
