Someone asked about this in another unrelated thread that's closed, so I figured I'd explain here why this works.

I'm currently running 4 light and 3 medium body pieces with Caluurions DW front and Frenzied Momentum on back. My build has high crit % and hits crit damage cap with backstabber.
My pen is about 14k.
I am spec'd into Magicka and spell damage. This let's be use mag for all of my skills except for the following: leeching strikes, forward momentum and whirling blades. Most of my stamina is there for maneuvering.
This means I don't get boned in the middle of combat and have to go hide under a rock while my stamina regens so I can attack again.
Meanwhile my new attack pool, Magicka, is constantly regenerating at 1200.
I highly recommend giving the a shot. You have a lot of options that you can run with Caluurions to get the same set up. I find that adding a straight damage set like stygian isn't as helpful as it should be due to the sad fact straight damage doesn't increase your skill damage enough. I'm a big proponent of fire damage because most people are vampire and many are stage 3.
I don't like to share builds publicly but if anyone wants to know more, feel free to DM me.
In conclusion: the days of medium stam melee or light mag staff are gone. You can get the best of both
I drink and I stream things.
