    Default DPS Essences and Runes...

    What should I be prioritizing as a relatively fresh level 50 looking to get into T2 and 10 mans?

    You'll want the Focus runes first and foremost if you don't already have the cap yet - if not ignore this - which means the 5SP 18 Focus ones for legs and head, and possibly the Focus ones for weapons too.

    After that, you want to buy the Runeguard rep or ideally Mathos belt rune, use +13Int on shoulder and chest, and gloves and feet only have one option (end for feet, sc for gloves). Legs and Head can either take the 5SP 18 focus one, or if you can get some the blazing sagacious (wisdom) runes they do nicely too. Dslayer Rep runes for legs are better than either of these if you can get them however.

    For weapons it's mostly personal choice as to if you go pure int or split int and SP(more SP but less crit), they're all very similar to one another so I'd grab the cheapest.

    Feet has an +Int/+End option from the PvP faction rune. Might as well start now grinding that up. Just pointing that out, not disagreeing with anything Benlisted said.

    I think the key, if it isn't to obvious, is to get enough Focus up to the cap you are working on. There is no need to go over the Focus cap until you are ready for the next tier. So don't go gung-ho trying to get 320 Focus for Hammerknell, if you are happy playing in T2s for a while. Buying and replacing runes on your pants, etc. is cheap.

    You should be concentrating on maximising your Int and Spellpower. If you cannot hit the Focus tiers without using Focus runes/essences, you're not really ready for that tier.
