As much as I enjoy getting a favourite on one of my photographs, it's the comments that help the most. Ironically, I would also love to have some actual critisizing feedback, or I won't actually know what I'm doing wrong, and improve on myself.

I think all of it is important. At least, when you join to get some attention for your work.

Obtaining new watchers. It will propel them forward, they'll have faith in themselves.

As a new member, the first thing I saw was a welcome message and it really made me feel comfortable in deviantART so I think that's really helpful. And. Getting new watchers too helps feeling good in this community since it means that people are interested in you work and so it's encouraging and helps them improve :) well, I guess that having favs and good comments also helps... ^^

For most people it's usually meaningful comments, but as for new users, I think attention through watch & favs & comments in general are better. It lets the person know that he's doing a good work and should continue to draw and post.
