Stamina is a lot squishier in no cp. That's all there is to it. I started playing ESO as a stamplar, arguably the weakest class in no cp due to a lack of defensive tools. I was managing just fine, but a few months ago i changed to magplar to give it try. Once i got used to magicka i tried going back to stam and couldn't do it. Stamina requires a much faster pace and in and out playstyle.
That's why i find it funny when people say stamina classes dominate pvp. Cp and no cp are totally different, and there's a reason why high mmr bgs are dominated by mag/ranged classes.
Agreed yea. People talk like vigor is a full heal and I wonder what they’re smoking. I almost feel like I’m doing something wrong, if I’m half health it’ll take 3 vigors to bring me to full health.
