Used to be. We don't know, really, after today's patch.
Focus, Spell Power and Spell Crit are your needed focus areas. Which order you put those in is largely up to your build. If you are doing a lot of DoTs, then Crit isn't going to help you much. If you have a lot of long cast times, then Focus is your buddy. Wait, I can sum that up:
DoTs and Channels = Spell Power, Focus
Big, long hits = Focus, Crit
Small, quick hits = Spell Crit, Spell Power
You'll want INT for any of them, also.
Gear (your blue v purple stuff) isn't going to make a large difference. It's going to make *A* difference, just not a large one. Your rotation is going to be the biggest difference that you can immediately control. Use the test dummies in the main cities to get your rotation down.
There are known issues with the Rift Junkies damage parser, so if you are using that and someone else is using a different one, you could be comparing apples to oranges.
