Should I do liek EQ1 and spend everything in STA. Since Int were easely capped and when your doing raids. You want to survive. Beeing dead with full mana mean nothing SMILEY
 
 
 
or EQ2 is different and I should spend stats point I gain when I lvls into Intelligence  ?

What race are you?  What are your stats now?  Also, you have to consider the availability of items (and buffs!) that increase stats...  If you have trouble finding items that increase a particular stat you might want to raise it more naturally.

I'd say go for INT, especially with that upcoming change to spells that'll favor INT. You'll have trouble to find INT on certain armor pieces anyway (for example wrist, waist etc.) so you can go for STA there. Imo Sta is not too important if you got a good tank and high resists against AoE spells and if a mob hits for like 1k it won't really matter a whole lot if you got 2000 or 2100 HPs, for example. Well, that's what I did, you gotta decide for yourself though.

I'd go INT.
 
You need to remember this game is nothing like EQ1 and the old rules do not apply here. You need to shoot for a unbuffed int of 200 and after that you can find items with sta if you want. I'm 34 and my unbuffed int is 184 and I hardly ever run out of power. I'm not sure about the high end game but the mid level game so far sta has no use for me so far.

If you have a good tank there is no reason at all to have the extra few hitpoints from the stamina. Right now intelligence increases your power pool but in future updates it will effect damage output. I am not sure that if you are in a raid your intelligence gets capped to say 300, but I highly doubt it does.
