Aight bois, 1st week back in a year, quick question

Is 700 socketed gear better than 710 conq?

For example, just got gloves from ashram but don't want to waste gold if they will be replaced

I am not sure but I did some maths with the bracers and worked out I lost 12.4 strength and 12 haste for a gain of 35 mastery (or something, numbers made up). It seemed like an upgrade.

What we need is some sort of number cruncher so we can prove it to ourselves - how much is mastery 'worth' versus strength, haste, versa, etc., which we will be losing? I've searched and cant find any values.

Sockets don't work in arena, and strength is better than mastery since the 4p PvE tier has no influence in PvP.

EDIT:
Roughly, str > crit = mastery > versa = multi.

Crit same value as mastery? Surely mastery is higher, i thought it was almost equal with str?

I did this same test earlier when someone said it didn't work, changed my stats as well

But, I'm guessing the 710 is better with all 4 stats upgraded and you're already at like 250% mastery as a warrior with good team syns

It works. Plus, why would they put a gem slot on a piece of pvp gear if it didn't work in arenas (kappa - I know it's blizz that we're talking about)

Nah 710 crit mastery + 700 crit mastery with socket is best combination.

Sockets didn't work in Arena because there was no socketed PvP gear and didn't want PvE gear to be an advantage. Once they added sockets on PvP gear it now works in Arena. It's PvP gear of course the sockets work now.

Is the 700 helm + socket better? As it has no mastery without the socket. Seems to give slightly higher MS damage in Ashran.
