Will Upgrading To Gold Add More DPS?

Khajiit Arcanist 64 pts in magicka. CP level 2071.
Oakensoul (spell damage glyph), Deadly Strike head (divine, max Magicka glyph) neck, ring (spell damage glyph) & precise lightning staff (shock glyph) & Slimecraw for the shoulder (divine, max Magicka glyph). Slimecraw will be changed out from light to medium to show the difference. Food is blue Melon-Baked Parmesan Pork. I'll be using Pragmatic Fatecarver x10 & this takes 46s to complete. Warfare CP is Fighting Finesse, Biting Aura, Thaumaturge & Wrathful Strikes. 6 million test dummy. I'll run each setup twice & post the better dps numbers.
The above mentioned will be the base line.

• Twice-Born Star (the Shadow & the Thief mundus). T-BS is light purple armor with purple max Magicka glyphs.

- T-BS with medium Slimecraw (5/2) = 15,612.2 dps + 51% critical damage
- T-BS with light Slimecraw (6/1) = 15,673.2 dps + 49% critical damage

• Twice-Born Star (the Thief & the Apprentice mundus).

- T-BS with medium Slimecraw (5/2) = 15,891.6 DPS + 34% critical damage
- T-BS with light Slimecraw (6/1) = 15,985.7 DPS + 32% critical damage

• Now I'll use Back-Alley Gourmands (divine, max magicka glyphs, gold) & only using the Thief mundus stone.

- B-AG with medium Slimecraw (5/2) = 15,719.8 DPS + 47% critical damage
- B-AG with light Slimecraw shoulders (6/1) = 16,955.5 DPS +45% critical damage

Looks like the 6 light & 1 medium armor setup constantly performs better. I'm not sure if T-BS was in gold using Kuta runestones if it would make up that 969.8 dps difference.

    We have decided to move this post to Players Helping Players as we think it would be a better category for this discussion.

    TBS is a niche set for overland soloists.
    Doesn't really do much. The five piece bonus doesn't even scale with quality. It is always the same. You only fet a little bit more Max Stats from the 2,3,4 piece bouses.

    What you little test is supposed to mean, I cannot say. The only thing you can conclude is that your sets are buffing your character. Nothing more.
    I mean you are not even building and consuming crux. This isn't representative of anything.
    read, think and write.In that order.

    Depends on what specific stats the gold armor piece has that is being equipped.
