Care to elaborate?
Did you actually test it out? Before, when i ran with 530 wis(all other stats being pretty much the same as i posted before), i would crit for ~120k on weaker targets, but on stuff like the Harbringers of Nightmare on TDCarnival, the top damage would cap at 70k, or so. Then i increased wisdom up to 580-610 and the top damage would be the same as on weaker targets. Wisdom = = = Finesse now for casters.
It was(and still is) the same for melee classes. If you had too low finesse, your damage would be next to nothing against high armor targets/players. Having been pvpìng against players as a full tank and getting close to no damage from other melee players, i can confirm this.
Every single mage/summy caster I know right now has capped their wisdom when it's at "increase." I've tested it and the damage increase is negligible. Your damage will vary with different mobs just because of the fact they have different elemental resist/end stats. Wisdom is indeed equal to finesse, however it is not as crucial on casters as it is on melee classes. During last Saturday against asc, I was hitting many of the warriors for well over 150k with comet and my wisdom was around 530 which is probably % increase by 1-2.

this was my previous dps build:

worked perfectly, was doing 60-90k dps in a4 with my level 5 runes. though, my wisdom was at -7%, my int was 49.9%.
i decided i'll switch my patron over from int to wisdom, and the dps increase was immense. so much so, that i went and changed to this:
http://www.allodsbase.com/calc#a60x2k6u ... 3oq0buk500
rose from 60-90k to about 90-120k. i'm now with only +30% int and have +26% wisdom, and my dps is incredibly higher. if my perc was higher, my dps would be over 200k.
Your argument is invalid because of the fact you're comparing two completely different statistics. Your sudden spike in DPS was because you managed to increase your wisdom to so that it increases instead of decreasing. Boosting it up to +26% is a complete waste of points. Keeping it at 520ish then boosting your int is the way to go. There is no way your DPS can surpass the 200k DPS mark if you're talking about pure single target unless you got lucky with upgrades and managed to get a leggy a4 wand or somehow managed to unlock lead2 before all of us.
