Hey chaps ( +chapettes )
Quick bit of background first. I have a Cp 388 Mag Sorc who I have been using in the Imperial City to hunt down motif's from chests recently. I'm not an experienced pvper nor is she set up for that kinda thing. If i get discovered its usually wham bang thank you mam and 3 seconds later im respawning back in the faction base. Im fine with that, its an inconvenience at worse and added spice for me when I'm pootling around at best. Thats not the thing.
So anyway, yesterday i was on my way to the sewer entrance across Cyrodriil and our faction was sieging a keep. It was nearby so i thought i may as well stop off and lend a hand. It was while doing that that i noticed that the damage i was doing was fully 1/10th!!! of my normal output against npc's. At that point i switched to healing until got I killed and then carried on my merry way.
Here is the question then. What is going on with PVP that would make such a difference to me? This character doesnt have elite damage capabilities anyway and is only in purple gear but it would be nice to be able to give someone a black eye on the way down if nothing else.
Gear is Julinos and Seducer, 5 light 2 heavy. All divines.
Inferno Staff - Precise.
Unbuffed Stats ( that i thought might be relevant ):
Magicka 26054 - Health 18471 - Stamina 9733
Spell Damage 1844
Spell Critical 70%
Spell Res 12713
Physical Res 9793
Attack Power 1132
Spell Pen 5631
Pysical Pen 100
To reiterate, i know this character isnt set up for pvp properly, im fine with that. Im looking for helping with why there is a glaring hole in the damage im able to do so i can research and figure out if im prepared to put the time and effort in to address that given what im actually there to do ( which is farm motifs ie pve )
thanks in advance for any help you can give.
