I would always use some kind of mat. I ruined a desk once not using one. Also, despite their claims, most mice track more accurately on a pad than a hard surface.

I used to use a mat with a wrist support. One of the better wrist support ones I found was this Belkin:

I now prefer a whole desk mat. As a gamer, you no longer have to worry about running the mouse off the mat and spoiling your shot. It's wonderful having a huge surface. I find I don't need wrist support as I have a chair with armrests and I have the arm wrest set for the height of my desk.

This one is a good quality and reasonably priced, no more than a good small mouse pad.

I used this until I decided to replace it a few months ago with a fancy one from Gamers Nexus, to support their channel. I still use the plain black one as a work surface for working on PCs so I don't scratch the desk:

I got that big Glteck mat after you posted about it and I've loved it. Worked out great for me.
