Stamina vs Magika

Stamina has big crit hit, big heals, many buff passives to attack power and crit, very easy to get AP to over 3k, unbuffed.

Magic? Avg Crits , Long weak heals dot..(unless you a temp) 1 decent crit buff, 2500 SP, you have to push it.

ZEN, I hope with the new Expansions coming up, you give some love to magic skill lines.

I am playing now a Magic NB, been playing stamina NB since beta, and I am shocked to see the big imbalance between stamina and magic.

If you break something, you can glue it back together and fix it, but, it will always be broken...

    I totally agree, i am a all time stam build and always have been, but i agree here
    in saying that, its also alot easier for magicka to sustain and get a really high max stat, i feel if stam where able to, get a max stat like magicka can, and allow magicka to get higher stats damage wise, things would be alot better

    I think it's the wrong time to be asking for a buff to magic. after all stamina is about to get 2 DLC's in a row and we all know what that means. defacto supremacy. Thieves guild & dark brotherhood....sheezus. whats next morag tong? Think NB's are OP now? just imagine in 4 months x.x

    ~I'm a sorc btw... and see the way things are going. pre-IC NB's made up 14% of my deaths. Now they make up 44%.

    The logic in this post make no sense. DLC has nothing to do with stam vs magicka. Patching in class balance does.

    magicka builds have massively more survivability than stamina builds though, generally.

    For example, when I play stam sorc, I have to burst a guy down before he bursts me down. When I play magicka sorc, I basically don't die unless I really *** up.
