About Simple iLevel

Simple iLevel shows the Average Item Level (AiL) of people you target or who are in your group in the tooltip. There are many checks in place to make sure you aren't repeatedly scanning their gear when it isn't required.


SIL does not take your spec or what is on your gear (SIL Resilience does) into account when computing a score. It just sums the iLevel of all your gear and then comes up with the average, their is a little magic with heirlooms so they are properly registered, unlike the default blizzard iLevel. You can view the average score for your group by typing /sil group, that can also be outputted to party, raid or bg by doing /sil group party or just /sil group p.

PvP Rating

SIL Resilience give you or your target a PvP Rating, this either displayed as x/y or xx.x% depending on how you have chosen to display it. This is the number if items with Resilience over the total number of applicable items. The score goes from white, 0%, to green 100%. Fully equipped players will have between 16 and 17 items in total. Doing /sil pvp shorts first based on the percentage and then based on the AIL of the player. /sil pvp works the same as /sil group where in you can append a destination to send the output.

Gray Score

A score will show up as gray if their are 8 items or less making up the score. The best way to get a proper score of someone is to target them and then do /sil target to force a fresh score.

Slash Commands

You can use /sil, /silev or /simpleilevel for options.

  • combat - Show the SiL information on the tooltip while in combat.

Known Issues

  • Scores don't show up right away. Blizzard has a unknown limit on the rate you can inspect people. There is no proper API however LibInspect tries to fix that.
  • No score is shown on health or mana bars. There appears to be a bug in the default UI when you mouse over someone their is a game tooltip however UnitName("mouseover") doesn't return anything.


If you would like SIL in your own language please fill out the localization information and it will be included in the next build. There are some that have been localized but not updated in a while and we are still looking for someone to translate it to esMX and esES.

Major Changes in 3.0

  • Several separate project on Curse were merged into the SIL Core project. This includes SIL Resilience and SIL Social.
    • Those modules as well as SIL Group are now load on demand, you can disable them on a per character basis so if you only pvp on your rouge you can have SIL Resilience only enabled on that toon.
    • SIL Group: This module includes most all of the group features that used to be in the core addon. This has been separated so that people can disable it if they want to.
    • SIL Resilience: This module shows you the amount of pvp gear the someone has on.
    • SIL Social: This module displays the AIL of people in party, raid and guild chat. You can pick and chose what channels it shows up in or completely disable the module.
  • There is now a fairly stable API that developers can use to extend SIL any which way. If there is a feature you would like to see added to the API please send me a message on CurseForge or on twitter.
  • Migrated over to LibInspect to separate inspecting and SIL. This will hopefully mean that I can get more developers interested in working on the Inspection part of this and other addons using one central library.
  • Added more customization options and changed a few defaults around. You can now completely disable score coloring, auto purge is turned on to 15 days by default so the DB won't grow to big.
  • Added smart group scanning where it will only scan every 5 seconds for the person with the lowest amount of items, oldest score or lowest score withing certain thresholds.


This is a WIP! if you need to know something specific send me a PM. See the API page for a listing

    Is there an update coming for 6.1?

  • #267

    Most likely nothing major. My account just expired and there is only so much I can do with a trial account. I don't think a whole lot UI wise changed for 6.1

    Does this work with TipTac?

  • #263

    Hey I was just wondering if in chat can everybody in the group/raid/guild see the iLvL in front of your messages or just me?

  • #264

    No, you can go /sil group guild

    Request for it to grab the players spec and show it in the tooltip above the iLevel line. So the tooltip would look something like...

    Player's Name/Title
    Player's Guild
    Level 100 Night Elf Hunter (Player)
    Spec: Survival
    Average iLevel: ###.#

    One of my other addons does this. It uses the same inspect library so no extra requests

    Possible to prevent the "No player named '[Player Name]' is currently playing." spam in that chat?

    This happens if i join a public raid group

    maybe you need to take a look on:

    I'm trying to find causes of that error on various addon sites but not having any luck. Why do you think its SIL? I can't think of anything that is called and does a lookup that would cause ths error.


    find me on twitter @scotepi

    Thanks, I'll take a look when I can. Unfortunitly everyone has been sick IRL so no time for wow or addons

    Why i think its SIL?
    Becasue if i disable it, the error is gone :D

    I think the error triggers at "GROUP_ROSTER_UPDATE" and/or "RAID_ROSTER_UPDATE" because the error triggers only in Public Raids like Premade groups for e.g Daylies or Worldbosses.

    I wrote a small addon to prevent this error, but i hope you will add a proper fix for the problem, becasue the addon, and also the addon "O Item Level" spam the Blizzard server.

    Here the link to my addon:

    i got the same problem

  • #253

    Great addon.

    I have one request if possible: Could we get the option to open a window with an overview of the group score instead of having to post it in chat?

  • #254

    I would love to do a UI for it however I have no experiance doing UI's. It should be a simple table but when I have looked into it in the past there is no easy to do it.

    Does this need some updating?

    For my druid alt for example it claims my average ilvl is 20. In reality it is ~31.3

    When I unequip my heirlooms my item level is 17, but this addon claims it is now 31.9?

    I don't get it.
