About iLvLr

Please join the Facebook group so you can share your thoughts with the developer.


is an add on that has been developed to conveniently provide at-a-glance information inside of the character pane. The intended purpose is to make the gearing up process more efficient. Future development will also make this process much easier to maintain across multiple characters. Current features of iLvLr include:

  • Ability to distinguish between gear of under 600 iLvl and over 600 iLvl for figuring out item Mods
  • iLvL of each piece of equipment
  • iLvL diplays proper upgraded iLvL for upgraded items
  • iLvL indicator that is color coded to indicate which items are holding you back the most (red - low; white - avg; green - above average, Now outlined to help with seeing on some custom UI backgrounds).
  • Average thresh hold for iLvL indicator currently hard set to +/-10 of average equipped iLvL (determined by the typical 13 jump of each set of gear)
  • Durability indicator added to replace deprecated add on DurabilityHelper, this is also able to be toggled.
  • Durability coloring matches that of the armored man from default UI. Green is safe, Yellow is alert, Red is Broken.
  • Missing Enchant and Gem indicators implemented to determine if you are missing any enchants or gems
  • (Profession specific mods removed)Gem/Enchant indicator takes into consideration your profession for Blacksmith sockets and Enchanters ring enchants
  • Takes into account belt buckles
  • Item Quality outline. Ability to toggle off for custom UIs.

Slash commands are supported, but limited. The /ilvlr prefix is required and will also give version information and a list of acceptable arguments for the slash commands.

Future development possibilities includes, but is not limited to:

  • Optimized code
  • Currency and Money data broker to track VP/JP/CP/HP and Gold, Silver, and Copper on all characters
  • Currency tracker will also have a VP/JP/CP/HP weekly cap indicator as well
  • Data broker implemented to track all characters iLvL (equipped)
  • Data broker implemented to track all characters Level, XP, XP to Level, and rest XP
  • Data broker implemented to record the profession and skill level of that profession and provide linking of all characters
  • More slash commands to allow customization of each module to some extent such as show/hide/alert modes
  • Customization interface that will allow color, location, and size customizations
  • Gem/Enchant indicator changed from letters to icons to allow easy:
    • Slot count
    • Gem count
    • Color count
    • Gem quality observation with colored borders
    • Correct color indicator (This might happen, but many people gem different colors as the gems reward more than the bonus)
  • Stat-Weight indicator that will display a list of stats in the order of priority
  • Stat-Weight indicator will also have goal indicator changing indicator from red to yellow to green as you close in on your goal (such as hit cap)
  • Equipped iLvL on inspect of another player (this will only show equipped iLvL. This will display in the inspect pane and possibly the tool tip)

I only ask you to be patient as I have a wife, kids, full-time job, college, and 10 85's in my raiding guild. Skill Helper is being worked on actively, but nothing is completed to a point of satisfaction to pass through my own standards.

    I've noticed that the ilevel info does not update on the character screen unless you close and re-open the pane.  I know this was working pre-Warlords and wanted to submit this as a bug in case no one had already made you aware of the issue.


  • #116

    Ok just got this  adding a new trinket


    Message: Interface\AddOns\iLvLr\iLvLr-2.2.0.lua:129: attempt to call global 'InCombatLockDown' (a nil value)

    In line 129 change

    if not InCombatLockDown() then


    if not InCombatLockdown() then

    and it fixes the lua error.  That one capital D is causing the issue.

  • #118

    I just got up, I was working on these fixes while camping a rare last night and that was a fat finger error. I fixed it and just pushed a fix. Should be pushing out in next few hours I hope. Guess I shouldnt be coding half asleep.

  • #115

    Any idea why iLvlr would show a higher item level than the item shows? A blue belt, for instance, that shows ilvl 600 on its tooltip is shown as 630 by ilvlr.

  • #120

    This is because the ilvl on your character pane isn't getting updated when you equip the new item... so it still shows up as the old item.

    If you close and re-open the character pane you should see the correct ilevels for your gear.

  • #121

    I dont know why I missed this question, but yes try reopening the charater pane. Its a tad annoying at times, but is written this way to cut back on lag from the addon firing off more then is needed.

  • #112

    Not sure what's going on here but ilvlr causes a complete lag out (frozen frame) for about 15 seconds everytime the equipment manager is used to change gear sets. I found this out by process of elimination.

  • #113

    Seconding this.  Game client does a noticeable multi-second freeze on attempts to switch out gear via either Blizz gear sets or Outfitter (basically anything that does a mass swap).   Much more pronounced than any tiny hitch there might have been pre 6.0.

  • #114

    This is due to how i got around the fix of pre-6.0 upgraded ilvls being displayed and now not working. Im looking into trying to get it to be reduced, Ill see about getting JerichoHM to take a look at it this weekend.


    Mind you this is part of the code that will not be needed on the 13th. So while am working to reduce/remove the 10 second lag that i experince doing this, It may be a small problem that eventually just gets cut due to not being needed.

  • #107

    Not showing updated gear's new iLvL :(

  • #111

    It is as of this morning :)

  • #110

    So Im pushing a fix for displaying proper ilvls. Took 4 hrs of insomnia last night, and 2 hrs today banging my head on a desk. But I have it up and running.


    Please let me know if you have any issues, or further things not displaying properly.

  • #105
    Bug report :)
    • Enchanters cannot enchant their rings.
  • #106

    Not really a bug, just a no longer needed feature xD

    But yeah, I removed the portion that displayed that rings were not enchanted, and cleaned up the code some. That should work perfectly now. I tested it a tad myself. Let me know if there is anything else that needs adjusting.
