Based on what?
Any good pair of gauntlets should sim higher than Edgemasters for an Orc or Human using two axes or two swords/maces.
And Gauntlets of Annihilation should sim much higher. Plus as far as humans go, they have Mala and AWH if they want to hit the cap for glancing blow penalty reduction on swords/maces; absolutely no need for Edgemasters there.
Really only an Orc wielding Thunderfury would “need” Edgemasters, and that’s a pretty unique case.
I rolled Tauren because I played one in vanilla and didn’t mind grinding out the 5k gold for Edgemasters.
But if OP is already thinking about saving himself gold, he should take the +5 weapon skill and just roll an Orc or Human and then just get himself Sacrifical Gauntlets/Flameguard and eventually Gauntlets of Annihilation.
