Rawr seems to be preferring gear with SP and mp5 above gear with crit and total intellect. I'm new to the scene so I'd like to know what the reason behind this is.

Examples:

Blackened Legplates of Feugen are better than Leggings of Protective Auras with 2 +16 int gems? http://www.wowhead.com/?compare=39293;37362

Boots of Healing Energies is better than Poignant Sabatons with +16int gem? http://www.wowhead.com/?compare=40187;40592

Helm of Purified Thoughts (Insightful Earthsiege diamond & 16int gem) is better than Helm of Diminshed Pride? http://www.wowhead.com/?compare=39760;44296

You need to get it out of your mind that mp5/sp are evil, and items with more of them are bad. Intellect is the best stat when you are comparing equal item budget amounts to each other. That is not what you are doing though, and when you have items that have large amounts of mp5 they can be better.

Also Helm Purified Thoughts is better since you should NEVER use a helm without a meta socket under any circumstances.
