Default How useful is Spirit?

The description of Spirit says that it increases your Mana pool and magnifies Magical attacks. I played all the classes and I realized most of the skills are physical attacks even on Occultist who is meant to be a ''magic'' class. That means I only add Spirit when I find my mana pool is not enough?

Spirit magnifies your magical damage so with spells like Bloody Pox and Sigil of Consumption you will see the benefit. It also increases your mana pool and mana regeneration and alot of the gear that has spirit on it comes with cooldown reduction which is useful for a spell focused character.

Yes, Spirit will increase the fire, cold and lightning damage from spells and any other source you may have.

This means an optimal demo has to choose between Cunning or Spirit, for physical/pierce or fire damage.

What about skills like Grenado that do part physical and part fire damage?
Does Demo need to get his Cunning and Spirit up for that skill?

I would still chose between either cunning or spirit, to get the most advantage of items with +% cunning or +% spirit and because the damage formula is multiplicative.

Multiplicative: Your fire damage is increased by a total percentage of (+% fire damage) * (+% bonus from spirit).

Cunning is important for any class. Melee or otherwise.

Doing "OVER 9000!" damage doesn't mean crap unless you hit it.
