If you want to do pvp dps, you'll be sticking to a very low count of core abilities most of time if you're looking for pure damage output. You can mix fun stuff like rescue pull, force speed, conal knock back, and interrupts to really contribute to a team win, but they won't bloat your total damage count in the way some people measure the entirety of their pvp contribute.

The thing to remember about sage dps, however, is their very high utility. The utility is where the fun comes in. You can rescue pull in huttball, knock an entire team away from capping a node, throw out force armor on random allies to contribute toward healing, make your force armor stun when it expires, make your knock back root, force quake for aoe node control, force speed to outpace opponents to objectives, and so on. If you know how to use these abilities you can have a lot of fun doing dps as a sage in warzones and really contribute to your team winning.

Unfortunately, you're also going to get ganked a lot for wearing light armor and being a potential healer.
