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:

  • 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) -(investigating to see if quality outline color is stock now, if so, may remove.)
  • 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
  • Gem/Enchant indicator takes into consideration your profession for Blacksmith sockets and Enchanters ring enchants
  • Takes into account belt buckles

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.

    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.

  • #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.

  • #109

    Honestly I just spent 4 hrs going over the upgraded ilvl code, even tested a few possible work arounds. I cannot get it to work, Im going to give it a shot in morning after i wake and havent been up for 20 hrs. 

    But to be completely clear, the old table used to add the upgraded ilvl (the +16) to the base ilvl (which is being shown now) is not working. So the quick and dirty fix no longer works.

    Also be warned, in a month this feature is gonna be removed, as with removal of Valor, and hence Item Upgrades, the code is going to become unnecessary. 

  • #108

    :) thank you. would it be possible that it shows the +16 ilvl that can be added ?

  • #100

    Looks like patch 5.4.8 and the 4 levels of upgrades is causing some issues - when I upgraded my weapon 4 times to ilvl 569, iLvLr is dispaying it as ilvl 553.

    Love the addon, my character sheet looks naked without it!

  • #103

    Ive been on a mini vacation, I will be putting out an update in next few days. I did some work on my PC and have to readd things to it toupdate to the repository. Sorry for being late with updates, but well, REal Life comes first sadly.

  • #104

    The update pushed, this should work. I havent tested it fully. I will expand on it tomorrow.

  • #102

    The function that calculcates how much users have upgraded items needs updating.  I've updated mine, might still be missing a couple values but adding these fixed it for all my players.

    1) Exit WOW

    2) Open the iLvlr.lua from your addon directory.

    3) Search for: ["498"]=16

    4) add the following code after the 16: ,["504"]=12,["505"]=16

    5) Restart Wow. This fixed items I had upgraded 3 and 4 times, including the legendary cloak.  There might be missing values still.
