*mages guild spoilers*


I just beat the guild and didn't receive a key. I hear the librarian's quests are endless so it doesn't look like he's going to give it to me. He's not carrying it on him so I can't steal it. The key you get for becoming Arch Made doesn't open it. The reason I care so much is I want to do that quest under the College. Apparently someone locked away the rings to the gauntlet in the Arcanaeum so I assume they're locked up there somewhere.

What do I do?

And what exactly does the Arch Mage key unlock?

GO back to the midden.

Look at the table in the room with the hand/gauntlet.

If the key to the chest is not there then it's in your inventory.

Go back to the library and look for the chest.


Pay attention to your surroundings next time.

I had the key. The chest is hard to see though so I missed it. I was trying to open the bookcases anyway but I guess this works for now. But still, can these be opened at all? And what does the Arch Mage key unlock?
