- For untold ages this tower has loomed over Elinhir, its portals mystically sealed, all entry forbidden. Someone exerted immense effort to place impenetrable wards on this place—but now those wards are sundered.
The Aetherian Archive is a tower in southeastern Craglorn near the city of Elinhir. Within the tower, groups of twelve battle through a series of challenges and ultimately face the Mage.
The Aetherian Archive Trial quest begins when you enter the dungeon. You have to complete the dungeon within a certain amount of time with limited respawns. The Mage's Tower is a quest to defeat The Celestial Mage, who is the final enemy in this dungeon. The bosses are the Lightning Storm Atronach, the Foundation Stone Atronach, Varlariel, and the Mage herself.
- Aetherian Archive Objective: Follow the Celestial Mage through the Aetherian Archive.
- Although NPCs refer to the Aetherian Archive as a "tower", the dungeon also includes outside areas.
- Aetherian Archive originally scaled to 12 and had no Normal mode. It later scaled to the Champion Points of the group leader, to a maximum of 160.
