Question: If I was making a Sage to be good at both PvM and WoE, would I want to sacrifice some dex for vit, some int for vit, or a bit of both?

Depends on what your aim on leveling is. If it's just stings, just get enough int to kill them in 1 FW+firebolt.

Ok, so I heard there was a bolt nerf that came after renewal that drastically decreased their damage,

1:I was wondering if it was true, of so would they not have the nerf in the classic server?
2: I wanna make a hindsight sage on this classic server, is it a horribly awful idea?
Eh...

If you want to hindsight with no linker/gear then it's a good idea

Any patch after renewal that nerfed skills of trans/1st/2nd class shouldn't be taken into account on a pre-renewal server, only bug fixes/glitches should take effect, not balancing issues afaik.

Build for PvM and a bit of WoE. Can't decide about LB and Thunderstorm.

Looks a bit weird. Why Frost Diver 3? Why Lightning Bolt 7? I would get Heaven's Drive 5 since it's the only decent area spell sages get, and it hits hiding people in PvP/WoE. Of course, level 1 is enough for that, but mobbing stuff with Firewall and Heaven's Drive is quite nice.

I wanted to freeze some people in WoE, since there's no marc card on Classic server yet.
 
Lightning Bold is for kill them and for leveling. I would get it lv 10 but there wasn't points enough.
 
What about Thuderstorm? Is it ok?

I'd personally max Heaven's Drive if you plan to level with a group in TI or at Hill Winds getting slaved. It's either Thunderstorm or Frost Diver really. =\ It's a bit of an iffy build in my opinion since you're kind of spread very thin like a jack of all trades (PVM and WoE).

Level 1 Free Cast is enough for the utility. No point in wasting any more points unless you're going Hindsight. If you're going up against casters, you're going to either have to spam Spell Breaker quick or Magic Rod even faster since it's level 1.

Keep Cold Bolt 5 at least as a PVM Sage for TI turtles and the like.

What you plan killing with Thunderstorm?

Iirc it's completely useless pre rebirth. Everything it kills can also be killed with Heaven's Drive.
BR?
