Do you build sustain

Simple poll. Do you run a 5 piece sustain set when you PvP solo or in a group that is not supporting your sustain? DO NOT VOTE BASED ON AZURAS STAR OR ANY NON CP CAMPAIGN. DO NOT VOTE IF YOU ARE UNDER 250 CP. If you don't use a sustain set you don't get to vote, cause I forgot to add you. Rip.

A sustain set is a set whose 5 piece bonus is centered around providing resources or maintaining them. Example, blackrose, seducer, desert rose etc. If you only run a 2 piece sustain like engine guardian then pick that specific option. If you are stamina you have a separate section. I know people switch builds but do your best to be representative of any sustain issue you might have.

    there are various ways to build for pvp, and for role both sustain and nonsustain, this is a very unscientific poll at best. too few options to choose from considering the various roles and sub-roles of each role needed in pvp for effective group dynamics.

    You can only survey 10 things. So maybe you can complain to zos that their polls are impeding the progress of science.

    He means the group is supporting your sustain. Likely via orbs, shards, other sets.

    Also I don't wear a sustain set

    K, well, I'll have to admit I'm not that creative and typically wear a damage set like Spinner's for that and a sustain set like Lich so I don't run out of resources.

    My sustain set is queuing for another campaign when I get in trouble. :smirk:
    Cyrodiil (the PvP map) is open-world and supports up to 2000 players in it at the same time. ESO’s client is designed to be able to handle (on the recommended spec) 200 players on screen at the same time.

    glass cannon mnb - no, but i try to be picky about initiating what fights i want, will usually turn into a pile of dust at wrong move
    templar healer - no, i do the group buffs
    sorc - depends on if in group or not, my regen usually 1300, i try to make it work, worked well few months ago, not sure on now yet.
    templar dps - i go off on my own in random campaigns so i build for balance

    If your group is running wormcult etc which makes it so you don't have to run a sustain yourself. edit, what Manoekin said.

    On my StamDK I used to run 3.2k stam recovery and 2.7k weap dmg to be able to escape from zergs in small scale pvp back in 1.6. I think that stamDK and stamblade are the only stam classes that need alot of sustain.
