    Hello I have been looking around at peoples armories and I can't tell what the most important stat balance is. I know crit is important for a mage at max level and you want to get it to 33% but at 60 is versatility more important? Should I ever focus on haste?

    This is my experience at 70 and me purely assuming it's similar. Haste does not stack well at 60 with mage, so crit and vers are priorities. Vers is a king stat in most lower level brackets because it's a buff to damage dealt and easy mitigation to damage taken. When i played in the 59 bracket people gemmed nothing but crit and vers. So take that as you will, hope it helps a little

    Remember also that critical hits i believe are reduced 50% effectiveness in bgs, unless something changed I was not aware off.

    Gems you should go for the https://www.wowhead.com/item=28123/potent-ornate-topaz as they're the best stat spread you can get at 60.

    Versatility is king, you get enough crit from the gems and the set bonus from https://www.wowhead.com/item=27796/mana-etched-spaulders&bonus=4105 so there's no need to focus it anywhere else. Get haste where you can. https://www.wowhead.com/item=39074/drape-of-distilled-hatred , https://www.wowhead.com/item=44742/mechanized-snow-goggles , https://www.wowhead.com/item=19339/mind-quickening-gem spring to mind.

    Intellect will be your biggest dps increase at this level, so treat every other stat as 2 to 1 for intellect in most cases - although for pvp I like to value Versatility until around 20% and then maximize int and haste.
