    Default Stat balance while gearing up

    Hey folks!
    I have a growing lock.
    I mean 95/340/95 already, but in the mid of ToV sig line, so my gear is far below the "average", ofc my stats as well.

    My question is:
    Should I focus on casting skills like speed (and double), recovery, reuse, AM and CC to get to the ideal values first, or rather keep the balance between these and the others like DPS, haste, AE, MA?

    Just asking, because I have 610cc, 22k AM, 230 casting speed, 100 recast 80 recovery, but almost totally reforged the DPS, haste, MA and AE to reach these values.

    The other thing: I've read a lot of posts and theorems, also checked some good warlock stats on u-wire and I always found that those guys keep cb and pot balanced, or have more cb than pot. This is the way to go and using a 1hander?

    Any advice appreciated.

    1) Make sure you've got enough CC for what you're doing. If you're in the middle of TOV sig line, you should be fine w/ 610.
    2) I wouldn't worry too much about auto attack stats until you've got some extra flexibility.
    3) If you're always going to have a troub, you don't need more than 50 recovery and 90 reuse self-buffed. Frankly, you could just put 7 in the AA (and skip the damage reduction AA) and leave it at 49.
    4) We use 1-handers generally. More white adorns, and we auto w/ our ranged.
    5) CB is slightly better than potency, even when right side spec'd, but its very close to a break even until you've got really solid auto stats. Why? Focused Casting + harder hitting autos = more of a gain than the extra tiny bit of potency you'd get.
    Give your Amerikan account to me and I show you how to parse like on Russian server. Only 50 Rubles.

    I didn't realize picking gear was hard after they changed it to easy mode gear.

    Thanks for your replies guys! (sry for the late response, I've had really busy days&nights this week)
    I will check my stats according to the advices.

    And yes: gearing up is not that hard, but unfortunately I don't have as much time for playing as I'd like to.
    The lock is my 2nd alt, so can spend limited time on her settings and gear, that's why your advices are even more valuable for me!

    Cheers.
