Are Mages in ESO born with magic?
I bet if you spoke your mind you'd be speechless.

    Wizard and Warlock are also ranks in the Mages Guild in Morrowind and Oblivion. Wizard seems to require making or taking a wizard's staff for yourself.

    Warlocks are an easier to grasp concept. They also don't really distinguish themselves from the others enough within the setting of the Elder Scrolls.

    A warlock receives magical powers (or items) from a patron, in our case most likely a Daedric prince, in exchange for servitude. In most cases a warlock is already something else, often mage or sorcerer, before they get the chance to find a patron.

    The most prominent characters in the lore that could be classified as warlocks are the Dragonpriests who received their powers from the dragons (although it must be assumed some have had powers of their own priorl to be considered worthy in the first place).
    This Bosmer was tortured to death. There is nothing left to be done.
