What is best stats for Mage
I know that as a mage we should be looking for Int and Wis but jut wanted to know what we should focus on more?
I am a 40 Pyro /16 Archon / 10 Warlock.
I've been considering endurance in there lately as well for survivability. Its actually noticable when running lock/chloro and the endurance buffs.
It is my understanding that INT is for damage and WIS is part of the Spell Power calculation...but thats just what I've read here on the forums. I haven't seen anything official.
Crit can be valued more if you pvp but generally for PvE youll want the extra spellpower from wisdom more than the spellcrit. Dont forget that int adds spellcrit as well.
Both int and widom give .5 SP per point, int also adds 1 spell crit per point. Mathed out spellpower is your best stat followed by int, at that point it becomes kind of convoluted depending on the situation and spec you run with. dont forget that certain specs will value int slightly more becuase of % bonuses from talent choices.

Here's a link to some information you're likely looking for now, and will be looking for later. I suggest you bookmark this for future use:
Important Note: The specs aren't reliable at the current moment. Hopefully they will do a lot more dps testing and present complete top-end builds. For now, just ignore them and focus on the quality information.

Because of the low efficients on DoTs, Spell Crit has a higher value then SP on Dot based Specs/Rotation.
Spell Crit and Spell power are close to equal weight on Specs that have + crit damage (like SC/Ele).
The relative values stated in that post are incorrect. It's not a static value, but depends on rotation, talents and your spell power and critical rating.
