Considering that magic itself has been totally ****ed up (no spell crafting, hardly any daedra for conjuring) they could have at least made the questline worth my time.
That was underwhelming.
Everyone else here has been praising the Mage College quests, including me. Are you referring to the Staff of Magnus quest? That was no cake walk and you explore a good bit of ground.
