Anyone else swap from using a magic character in pvp to now using a Stam one?

Getting my stamblade set up for it as I have not L2P my magblade efficiently enough yet with this patch. Can’t seem to find a good balance yet with survivability on my magblade. If there are suggestions out there please share.

    For solo pvp, Stamden / Stamplar are the best specs this patch imo.
    Won't mention Stamblade since it's pretty much rollface since release.

    It's the opposite for me. I am considering mag sorc/nb for combat mobility.

    Everyone except stubborn masochists like me are playing Stamina now.
  • thankyourat
    I been thinking about switching my magblade to stamblade because of all the reflect and DKs in PvP right now it feels like everyone is a DK right now. It's just annoying not being able to fight back or see your opponent shut you down with the push of a button. As someone who plays solo I can't afford to be hard countered like that
  • rabidrufus64
  • CyrusArya
    Exact opposite for me. Went magplar this patch, for several reasons. One of the biggest being that I feel playing stamina without abusing infused glyphs rn is gimping yourself and I refuse to play that way. But after a few days of doing so, I am convinced that the gap between Stamina and Magicka is greatly exaggerated by magicka mains. Just gotta build right. With the nerf to speed pots, the two are quite at par these days in my opinion and experience. Especially when this glyph fiasco is sorted out, as it’s clearly broken and skewing the dynamics of PvP as a whole.

    The only 2 magicka specs that need some help are sorc and warden, but that’s a class issue not a magicka issue.

    Dropped my Sorc for a Stamwarden.

    Suddenly, I am much better at PvP. Probably a coincidence, right?

    No, i stick to my melee magblade. That said, i didn't PvP after murkmire. I'm burned out with the game me thinks. Every patch i have hopes but then read the forums. Don't feel like pvping then. Been helping out noobs with worldbosses instead.
    "I am a nightblade. Blending the disciplines of the stealthy agent and subtle wizard, I move unseen and undetected, foil locks and traps, and teleport to safety when threatened, or strike like a viper from ambush. The College of Illusion hides me and fuddles or pacifies my opponents. The College of Mysticism detects my object, reflects and dispels enemy spells, and makes good my escape. The key to a nightblade's success is avoidance, by spell or by stealth; with these skills, all things are possible."

    I have one StamNB that I hate more than any other character. She looks cute, though.

    I probably would have more fun in Cyrodiil playing Stamina classes, but... I'm too stubborn.

    Well yeah I mean you went from the original button spam class to the current button spam class.

    I’m playing mag sorc this patch, so I switched the opposite direction. The maj expedition nerf was a huge buff to streak imo

  • leeux
    Nah... I'm one of those biased towards Magicka myself and I'm not afraid to admit it... tried playing stam builds way back and just couldn't.

    Having said that, I don't know if I'll play PvP... for now at least, cannot stand the current state.

    was playing magplar before and still am today!! i use 5pc light armor and am a bit squishy but i like being the underdog and feel that i accomplished something when i get kills.

    its hard to play atm , and heavy armor would be better but i like to keep thing as they are intended!
