+2 intelligence vs +8% magical damage
Which increases damage more?
For example, I was deciding between which item to let my sorcerer wear.
Ring of Lovelorn
+8% magical damage
Which is better for damage and how is it calculated?
+1 intelligence means +1 level of damage.
What exactly does it mean by +1 level of damage?

Basically, to calculate the damage you do, the game rolls a bunch of imaginary dice and adds them to a base value. The size of the dice depends on what kind of attack you're using, while the number of dice rolled depends on your stats, skills, and equipment. This is what's meant by "levels of damage": it's the number of dice rolled. In general, for a magical attack, every point of Intelligence adds an extra die of damage, and every point in the relevant spell skill also adds an extra die.
I believe there's further information about damage calculations in the game's manual.

For instance a dagger would do 1-3 points of damage per level. Swords would do 1-4 points/level.
