This post maybe a little vague, I hope someone can make head or tail
Great thing about casters imo is that lux isn't necessary. Regen does basically nothing for energy regen. I would suggest if you have to choose between sigils and lux go with sigils.
If you can invest in both I would suggest a focus ammy (the ones that have the energy shields are the best), master grim at level 50, focus of the seer at level 100, mystic at 150, mystery grim at 180 and 200 (unless you get a hold of dl grimoire or edl grimoire).
For braces i would suggest event braces that boost your skills or aggy braces.
For rings ow skill rings are the best along side event rings if you can get ahold of them.
Mages are great in that there is a plethora of different gear that is similar so that how good your toon is isn't decided by which event you start playing in.
The gear that you highlighted sounds great.
for Sigils i would suggest 500 at 150, 1000 at 180, and 1.5k-5k at 215/220+ for energy, health sigils just get enough so that you don't have to wait a year to get full health at a boss.
For regen in combat just get use to either having to step out of the action for a moment to regen or use an e lix at bosses.
Eboost works decently too.
Also I love the full focus build!. been full focus since my mage was 165 and it is a great build. With the new attune cooldown low vit builds work decently.
If you have any more specific questions would be glad to help!
