Title says it all.

Which class do you see most in PvP encounters? Is there a difference between Cyrodiil and Battlegrounds?


Very interested to see your answers!

(I hope the poll answers are matching the class colors this time)

    At least 50% of PvP is wardens and WW.

    Class I see the least is probably magblade, closely followed by magcro.

    Combat team happened. Why would I play templar when I can play literally anything else?

    I see wardens the most in Cyrodiil. The warden class is super forgiving to play. You are innately tanky and have a brain dead burst rotation.

    But, during the No proc tests that we have right now, it has to be sorcerers, the amount of magsorcs that are running around is a farcry to how many there were prior to the testing. This goes to show how much they shine without the need of damage proc sets.

    During the no proc tests, Sorcerers, because they are the class with best built-in proc skills. Next would be Wardens. Beyond this test, Wardens.

    They are probably more noticable bc they're flashy, in reality hardly anyone plays this once-divine class anymore :(

    Warden
    Wardens have several abilities that make them outliers in PvP. Arctic Blast has too much power budget for one skill; it is a %HP burst heal, which is also a %HP heal over time, which is also an AOE DOT with 200% increased chance to apply Chill, Minor Maim, and Minor Brittle (10% crit damage, frost staff only), which is ALSO a 4s AOE stun. The complaints about "tanks" in PvP, which have since gotten actual tanks in PvE nerfed several times, stem from %HP heals which allow a class to stack health, get it all back with single button press, and deal damage through Procs without the need for the usual stats, and Warden abuses this healing more than any other class. Don't believe me? Look at where Templar, the only class without a %HP heal, stands on this list. Wardens also have Betty, which is free, grants constant sustain even while blocking/running, purges, and grants Major Sorcery/Brutality, along with Shalks being quite a cheap (cost wise) skill that deals solid damage, is delayed, allowing for burst windows, and on Stamina builds hits twice.
