So for amazon skills such as: Thundercrack, Magnetic Field and Stormcall what would be the most important affix that will give highest dmg?
1. Higher weapon base damage
2. Higher spell/lightning spell dmg
3. Flat lightning damage on hit
4. -% lightning resistance

thundercrack and magnetic field are both weapon-damage modifying skills (%WDM) ,so they rely on your weapon's damage, added elemental damage, crushing blow, deadly strike, ewd, etc all related to dealing weapon damage.

Stormcall is a lightning spell, so you'd need +skills, energy, energy factor, spell damage.

-% enemy lightning resistance (pierce) works for anything that deals lightning damage.
