Variant Gem Socketed Items
I find myself creating a half dozen variants of each item I'm interested in to see how all the items for that slot compare when socketed. This is both fairly tedious and error prone as the combinations/permuation are large and often the right answer is not what you might guess because of shifting weightings on stats and the impact of socket bonuses.
Please consider auto generating some of the permutations of gear based on the presumed value of each color gem. I would think less than a dozen permutations should be enough to find the right anwers even considering socket bonuses. Right now I see there are options for socketing ALL gear with default gems, while that 's a start, its a very blind shotgun approach to finding the right stuff.
