Nope, before I changed anything I had a score of 2221. That was with 4 bright scarlet rubies in 2 pieces of gear with neither socket bonus active. Replaced the off-color gem in each piece with a bright dragon's eye adding 22 AP to each piece and activating +8 AP and +6 crit rating socket bonuses.
Gear score is now 2215.
Just thought that was weird.
