Prior to starting, be sure you’ve read through my ‘Tips for preparing for the Psijic Order Questline‘ Guide to make the grind a little faster. Those who have fully explored Tamriel will have a much easier time with this Questline then those who have not.

They told us that they heard our complaints about these systems and ensured us that 6.0 would be …
