Note: Tables below list Nightmare Tear twice because it provides two useful stats from one gem.

Without socket bonuses, the Relentless is clearly superior by a difference of 16.22 EP. I am going to assume that you are already using a Nightmare Tear to activate a 6 STR socket bonus, such as in [Koltira's Battleplate of Triumph]. However, if you have another item that provides a similarly strong socket bonus, such as [Dual-blade Butcher] the use of [Sovereign Dreadstone] in the blue socket will socket bonus of 6 Strength will provide 18.3 EP, covering the 16.22 EP difference in the gems. If we get a helm with a blue socket to provide 8 strength, this should grow even more. Please excuse me if my arithmetic is off or if this has already been covered.
Sounds interesting, but I think you can only put 1 nightmare tear in your set.
