In High Elf culture, magic serves as an indicator of ones social standing, with those possessing little to no ability to use magic being considered peasants, and powerful mages being the equivalent of nobility. Additionally, any knowledge tied to magic is considered a valuable commodity among the High Elves, and any knowledge related to the magics of the old Elvish Empire is considered priceless.
