Season 3 epic Vs Season 3 Blue + Gem. [Clarification]

03 February 2016 - 08:48 PM

On my Rogue I've lucky managed to obtain a few blue pieces with gem slots, now putting a 75 mastery gem into these seems like a pretty sweet deal, especially since I hadn't up-graded my rings yet.

However, I haven't been able to find anything regarding the viability of these gems VS their up-graded counter parts, at least for Rogues.

Has anyone seen any threads of posts I've missed regarding this? A search didn't yield anything for me, but I didn't scrub through them thoroughly.

Just from a quick check I did; it seems blue rings and gem slot yield better damage than the up-graded rings, but only with the +75 mastery gem, all others fall short. Rings are also the only item I've seen that gives an increase in damage. I put a 75 mastery gem into a cloak, and checking the stat different from equipping in BGs and arena shows that cloak giving more mastery, and stats across the board, compared to the gem'ed cloak.

Does anyone have any other information on this. Cloak was the only other item I was able to compare, but giving it has the same stats as the wrist I doubt there are any others.
