possible duplicate of How are attributes spread in each specific class? – Wipqozn May 20 '12 at 14:36
The reason they downvoted is probably because the tooltip of the stats say for which class it is important. So they probably think you're question shouldn't have been asked, because I don't see how you could improve it other than stating some of your own findings – Ivo Flipse May 20 '12 at 14:36

The primary stat is the stat that modifies damage by 1% per point -

  • Intelligence is the primary stat for Witch Doctors and Wizards
  • Dexterity is the primary stat for Monks and Demon Hunters
  • Strength is the primary stat for Barbarians.
