Healadin - T8 vs T9, bug ?

Hi,

I'm a bit confused on how the Healadin rates gear when it comes to T8 and T9 gear.

For example, I'm currently wearing:
T8 (ilvl 226): Conqueror's Aegis Spaulders: 63 Sta, 64 Int, 48 Crit, 57 Haste, 90 SP, +20 Int Gem, no socket bonus
Rawr's score: 656.13

But when we look at the T9 gear:
T9.25 (ilvl 245): Turalyon's Spaulders of Triumph: 77 Sta, 77 Int, 67 Crit, 59 Haste, 109 SP, +20 Int Gem, 5 SP socket bonus
Rawr's score: 568.22

T9.H25 (ilvl 258): Turalyon's Spaulders of Triumph: 86 Sta, 86 Int, 76 Crit, 68 Haste, 124 SP, +20 Int Gem, 5 SP socket bonus
Rawr's score: 631.80

How is it possible that a T8 piece with the same stats but lower values as the T9 gear scores a value ? I am using out-of-the-box rawr settings (buffs and options) for the Healadin.

If it makes any difference for this question, my build is this:

You're probably right at a 2 or 4-piece T8.  The reason the T8 is valued so high is because the set bonus is rolled into the gear value.  So it's not just the stats on the shoulders themselves, but also taking into account the fact that you would be breaking a set bonus to pick up the new piece.

You're right. I'm wearing 4 pieces of T8, by equiping a 5th piece the scores of the T9 became a lot higher then the T8 pieces.

Sorry, my mistake.
