I was wondering, how will the staff mechanics work?

We know that a left click will launch an attack, and that they'll improve the more you use them but:

What will they use as a power source? Soul gems? Magicka? No limit?

What will right click be? A normal block (like with a 2-handed sword)? A defensive ward? Another type of attack?

Any information will be appreciated! Even if they're not answering the questions above, I want to know as much as possible, Thanks ;)

I'd have to say the safe bet on the power source is just magicka. You arent going to be able to pause the game like you once could and charge your staff with soul gems. As for blocking, the first thing that comes to mind is blocking like your using a two hand. I dont imagine mages are going to be doing TOO much blocking..

Yeah, I figured that blocking would be that way. But I, personally, am guessing that the staff's power source will be unlimited. Thanks though ;)

As a weapon, I would assume the power source is unlimited. It would be kind of unfair to staff-users to have everyone swinging away while they're having their magicka slowly burned away through normal attacks. A long time ago, I believe it said in an interview or something that normal attacks don't use any of your resources; only power attacks/blocks/skills. Your left click is the "normal attack" button (unless you hold it, making it a power attack) so I would say it falls under the same category.
