Is your main PvP character a mage?

Got lolled a couple of times for pointing out dominance of stick wavers in PvP. Perhaps we can have some stats.

For clarity's sake: if you carry two destro staves or two resto staves, pick the first option ;)

    curious in the results...

    personally, I think that the amount of staff-users has drastically declined with update 1.5 and recent popularity of twohanders and bows...
    (sword and shield has always been a semi-popular alternative to staves...)

    Don't really need to hold a staff to be considered a mage in ESO. A dress wearing DK is just as mage'ey with 1h/shield.

    True. Perhaps a poll "How many non-staff weapon abilities do you have slotted" would give more insight, though that would still not account for frequency of use.

    I run SnB + Resto but I only use the resto in a small number of encounters.

    I could be using any other weapon as I mainly use my resto bar as a support bar.

    PVE wise pretty easy, they're not the best choice but they work well. Focus on siphoning and damage mitigation stuff.

    PVP wise you don't really tank so much as just spam Sap Essence and hope. I'm not going to win many 1v1 or 1vX fights in PVP but I like to be durable if I raid lead so I can focus on getting things done.

    Resto for my dps/heals bar, sword & shield for my buffs/utility bar. Cuz resto is the only ranged light atk that doesn't get reflected, and I have no combat self heal as a sorc. That last thing means that I simply can't build any kind of non raid blob build w/o resto staff if I want to live.

    I use resto/dw/light armor when grouped, bow/dw/medium armor when solo or against vamp/ww heavy groups.

    Not surprised that 61% of respondents (52/84) use resto staffs, seems like most people in Cyro use that as their swap weapon if not primary.

    I said both weapons are staves because in most situations I use Destro/Resto on my Sorc. However, I use Resto/Resto on my Templar and Destro/SnB on my DK. I also sometimes use Destro/SnB or Resto/SnB on my Sorc. I'm also leveling up a bow in anticipation of the healing debuff fix on Monday.
