T8 2-set bonus vs Higher Item level

Hey guys,

As always, thanks for a great service!

I want some input regarding this recommendation;

The SIM recommends gloves of endless dark over Conq. Terrorblade gauntlets (which enables the 2 set bonus for T8).

Is the higher item level off of the GOED really superior to the 2 set bonus of T8?

According to our calculations, yes, we think that set bonus is very weak. That is a very small amount of energy gain. It could be good enough to be worth getting if you keep deadly poison up on multiple targets, but our calculations are for single target. Even with 3 targets having deadly poison, you’re still talking about 1 energy per second. So weak!
