I currently have "staff mastery" maxed, but looking at the "wand mastery" skill has me wondering. Level 4 states that a wand attack generates a pushback of 2m. Does this happen with each and every attack or is it random like so many other things in the game? A 2m pushback with each attack would seem to guarantee that an enemy would never be able to reach you before it was killed. What am I missing?

Against weaker enemies, that tends to be the case. They'll die before they reach you. Against groups or strong enemies, they'll get to you.

Staff Mastery has a higher damage bonus, plus the slow effect. Couple that bonus with the higher base damage of staves, and the push-back for wands seems less impressive.

A wand mage is designed to be the more defensive of the mage build. So they get protective off-hand items like the orbs, plus a weapon mastery that tries keep enemies at bay.
