    My goal is either:

    120 Magery
    120 Evaluate Intelligence
    120 Resist Spells
    120 Meditation
    120 Wrestle
    100 Inscription

    or

    120 Magery
    120 Evaluate Intelligence
    120 Resist Spells
    120 Meditation
    120 Wrestling
    100 Poisoning

    Should I be human or elf?

    humans have Jack of all trades giving them 20 in everything plus carry more
    elves have night sight and mana boost of 20
    then also elves have good chance to reveal hidden
    there are also crafting bonuses
    here is a link that may help you

    I really like the mana bonus from being an elf. The only humans I have atm are my crafter and a Paladin I don't use much.

    Human, because it's way cooler to be able to see your hat. ^^

    Seriously, just pretend there aren't any racial bonuses and go human.

    Because with your template, human gives you 2 stamina regen and one extra mana regen from 20 focus.

    You'll use (10) less mana for your specials (the reason you have wrestling). The moment you pull 2 specials back to back, you already offset the elf extra mana benefit.

    The extra mana is nice but 2 extra stamina regen could mean the ability to run away or to walk away (seeing gray).
