Dont forget that knights have 13 purple runeslots on the new gear! Equip 3x INT-80 runes, 3x STR-80 runes and 3x AGI-80 runes and you've copied your 240pts-per-stat example using blueseeds (20%). Another purple rune and you achieve what the 13x normal runeslots filled with +5 rune would achieve. So still have 4 more purple runes to go.
The crux is that the new Eddga gear also removed 'useless' stat bonuses you would normally get. A knight f.e. loses ~300pts AGI. So it would take about 4 purple runes to compensate the loss. So in the end, it's only a nerf if you had better seedrunes or used rune enhancement elixirs to fill your gear with +10 runes. (But even that is somewhat negated by a slightly better honing)
What makes Eddga totally broken is the simple fact that Knights and Warriors have Battle Tactics. Whereas the blueseed change is a nerf for all the other classes, it fuels BT with 200~350pts INT for free. And if it turns out that these two classes can use INT-80 purple runes, it will definitely ruin any hope for balance.
So all in all, it turns out that knights perform pretty well with the new gear.
To show you the opposite: A monk f.e loses ~660 INT and ~950 AGI... try to compensate that with purple runes!

Maybe I had to say farm edgar but don't wear them until you get all them +80 runes and at that point chose the best equip. All these suppositions are made whit blue 20 what about blue 30 or the no more ultrarare 50?

Well, the new Eddga gear trades fix bonuses for variable ones. And some parts are 'nerfed' more than others. So yes, generally spoken, it's only worth a try, if you have the proper purple runes. But that's not different to the current refinement or honing system. Don't change your gear unless you can bring it to the same refinement level or achieve similar powerful honing results.
