Mage PvP - Damage vs Protection


What’s the general opinion on this?

Would you say that a full set of protection/armor accessories is worth the extra survivability or instead go full damage because once focused a Mage is likely to die anyway?


In minis I assume? Depends on the setup. Obviously if you feel like you’re not gonna get focused go max damage gear. In a balanced mini, if you’re quite happy to get scores of something like 20-18 wear your full damage gear. If you want to stay alive a bit longer and go for a potentially better kdr then wear survivability pieces. If you have a good healer helping you, you should be able to stay alive a lot longer than you think.
