It is true that these beings often seem "out of it", are not in tune with nor aware of much that goes on in the mundane realm. They have a difficult time finding or holding jobs and have little interest in the daily concerns and pleasures that most folk find thems'elves involved in. The mystic even seems distracted, as though listening to music or voices that no one else can hear, which is indeed the case. They are often regarded as "crazy" among the normal folk, but then nearly all the Elven are also so regarded.
There is surely no particular function that we could ascribe to the mystics... They have no exact "job description" so to speak, except to listen, to stay in tune and occasionally to wander and thus lead us in their haphazard way deeper into Elfin.
That the Elfin Mystic often sems "stoned" is no accident. For quite often their attunement to the nether regions is aided by the assistance of the plant kingdom. Many spiritual disciplines would frown upon the use of "intoxicants" or psychedelics to aid or heighten our relationship with the netherwords but the elfin have no such prohibitions. As long as the intoxicants are not harmful or addictive to ones'elf or others we see no problem with whatever means one choses to contact the Divine.
But the heart of the magic of the elfin mystic is in their devotion to their relationship with the netherrealms. Many folk use intoxicants but very few are mystics. It is not the intoxicant that creates the mystic but the Elfin Mystic's reaching out toward the Divine that makes the intoxicant useful as a device for heightening that contact when used with wisdom and discretion.

you seeking to connect to and understand the true sources of power and
energy in the universe?
The path to Pluto which is the path of the Sorcerer
you willing to empty yourself and allow the universe to communicate through
The path to Mercury which is the path of the Channeler
you endeavor to connect to the universal energy to affect and realize
the etheric planes of being?
The path to Venus which is the path of the Mesmerist
you desire to tune into the energy of the universe in order to manifest
real things on the material plane?
And the path back to the earth which is the path of Conjuror
