Where can I find some really good mage equipment early on?

I mean right off the bat. I found a full Hooded Thalmor set on my way to Riverwood from Helgen but the first set of mage gear you get from the cave is better.

The real trouble with reality is that there's no background music.

Yea the best mage equipment I found early on was in helgen keep if you go to the college of winterhold you get a novice robe of destruction

Honestly a lot of the loot is pretty random. I guess the easiest would be to head straight to Whiterun, get a Firebolt spell from the court Mage, and then take the wagon by the stable to Winterhold and join the Mage College. They hand out gear to new mages.

The secret to life is honesty and fair dealing. If you can fake that, you've got it made.

Not GREAT, but for Apprentice Robes of Restoration (75% regen) and hood (+40 magicka) go to Markarth and SPOILERS!!!!
