The 3 stats you want to focus on are power, crit rating, and surge rating.

Power is a linear stat that is always going to be helpful.

Surge rating is a stat that gives you the most bang for your buck if you have a moderate amount of it. It makes your crits hit harder. It also has diminishing returns when you start to collect alot of it, so even though it's the best stat early on, if you just stack nothing but surge you'll end up weaker than if you take a more balanced approach.

Crit rating is a stat that makes you crit more often. If you play a class that has alot of ability to make your stuff crit from abilities, then this isn't a good stat, but for most classes, you want to get it as a companion to Surge rating.

For most classes, you want to get a Moderate amount of Surge and Crit, favoring Surge a little more because it's more useful per point as long as you don't stack it exclusively, and don't be afraid to take power as a 3rd stat. Power is still universally good for any damage dealer.
