The ideal Mage CP distribution for magicka builds can be easily calculated by maximising the following function
I've done this at 501 CP for two common critical chances with Julianos for a range of Elemental, DoT and Staff Ratio. In order to use the results you need to determine the ratio of your damage that is based on DoTs and Staff attacks. I've assumed that 100% of you damage falls under Elemental. Once you know the DoT and Staff ratio simply look up the corresponding row and column in the table below and read off the ideal champion point distribution.
EE = Elemental Expert
T = Thaumathurge
S = Staff Expert
Elf = Elfborn
SE = Spell Erosion
Hope the table is reasonably understandable and helps everyone with optimising champion points!
Edit: This applies for a base critical modifier of 0.5 i.e. for Sorcerers and Dragonknights.
