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.

  • advanced - Toggles advanced tooltips including the scores age.
  • combat - Show the SiL information on the tooltip while in combat.
  • color - Color the AiL where appropriate. Disable this if you only want to see white and gray scores.
  • autoscan - Automatically scan group members when their gear appears to change.
  • minimap - Toggles showing the minimap button.
  • cinfo - Shows your AiL on the Character Info window on the stats pane.
  • purge - Clears all cached characters older then x days.

  • pvp <dest> - Prints the PvP Score of your group to console, party, raid, battleground, say, guild or a channel.
  • options - Opens the options UI for even more configurations

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

    I love this addon already as it is but I would love it even more if it showed the character's PvP ilvl in the tooltip as well. :)

  • #290

    Unfortunitly I don't play any more so I can't test it out. It may be related to some updates with LibItemUpgradeInfo-1.0. If you manauly install the lib/addon it will replace the one in SIL.

    As long as there are no major updates for the expantion it should still work. I may play around a little with a trial account but its hard to do extensive testing.

  • #291

    Does this mean you wont be updating it for Legion?

  • #287

    Hi there, wanted to report a "bug".

    The addon currently has problems calculating ilvl with the timewarped gear, or possibly just the timewarped warforged.

  • #289

    Still problems with peoples ilevel and timewarped warforged gear

  • #286

    Thank you for your work.

    I have a feature request for this addon or as a standalone.  Please consider syncing of ilvl databases across a guild.



  • #283

    Updated to beta but I am still waiting on LibItemUpgradeInfo-1.0 to do a final version for 6.2. People with upgraded items will be off until LibItemUpgradeInfo-1.0 is upgraded.

    I would like to back this up. The timewalker gear causes the addon to misread the iL and give an incorrect iL for the person. 

  • #285

    With 3.2.18? There may still be an issues with LibItemUpgradeInfo


    find me on twitter @scotepi

  • #281

    Its reading all my toons right but one. Is this due  to waiting on the update?

  • #279

    Is there going to be an update for patch 6.2. Right now there is an issue with reporting incorrect ilvl on some players and clearing the cache and rescanning does not seem to fix it.

  • #280

    Working on it, no eta because or RL stuff. I did some quick research last night and the fix seams easy if I can find where to put the fix. I almost think it may be an issues with LibItemUpgradeInfo-1.0


    find me on twitter @scotepi

  • #278

    any chance this addon will be updated for 6.2? i love the addon, but currently it seems to be reading timewalking items at their un-scaled ilvl (95-112 or something) instead of 660 or 675. the avg ilvl reported in people's tooltips is completely unreliable as such.
