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.
  • clear - Clear all settings and the cache.

  • target - Gets the AiL or your current target.
  • group <dest> - Prints the score of your group to console, party, raid, battleground, say, guild or a channel.
  • 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

    Thanks! Playing with the settings.lua was just what i needed :)

    I think there is a bug with moged gear showing the ilevel of the moged item insted of the item worn. I saw it while in a group with someone using /sil group but then I moged an item and can't reproduce it solo.

    A little update...

    I have SimpleILevel core update and just about ready to go for a alpha 3.0. I'm having some issues with LDB not updating/giving bad results, and I think its requesting data twice as much as it should. This has been almost a ground up rewrite however it will be backwards comptable with your DBs from older versions.

    I split Group functionality off into its own addon that will come bundles with SIL.

    I have yet to update SIL Social or SIL Resiliance (to be renamed PVP), those will also be bundled into the core addon and have some real settings associated with them.

    Since this is a ground up rewrite I have taken the time do document some methods that 3rd parties can/should use a lot better then before. I have also started using events for some of the hooks insted of having to register.

    I can confirm there is a error, its the most noticeable in large groups, running scan many, many times still doesn't fix it. I put in a lot of debug code and from what I can tell, pass 1 gets the mog source and pass 2 gets real item.

    I really think I need to break the inspect code out to be a library format for easier management.

    Update: I started a addon LibInspect to try and overcome a lot of the inspect issues. I will most likely be working on that until its a beta form and then adding it to Simple iLevel to fix the issues with Transmogrification.

    Thanks, I made a comit last night and another this morning that should improve item scaning to almost 100%. It makes a 2nd pass if there are less then 10 items by default and then runs the hooks.

    As for SiL progress, I have mostly rewriten the core and its working for the most part, I need to validate all the settings works and it doesn't wig out in partys, raids or bgs. I also stiped out all group functionality and and going to move that to another addon so it can be disabled if you dont want it. In my internal testing i have it versioned as 3.0 but it will most likely be 2.3 once I figure out how to upgrade the DB.

    After those 2 I'm going to start working a lot on SiL_Resiliance and SiL_Social.

    Thanks for your work. I've tried your LibInspect (0.1-alpha)  - and it works. (I'm using it with AiL from wowinterface)

    When I mouseover a player at first I'm getting the wrong ilvl but after a few sec and moseover the same person, I'm getting a real ilvl of that person. Thanks :) It's nice to see that someone working to fix this transmog issue -)

    Would be nice to have an option to not scan while in combat to avoid communications spam during fights.  Or does it do that automatically?

  • #90

    It shouldnt scan in combat, the cached tooltip will show up but no scaning is being done. I need to do a little cleanup of what can/can't be done in combat.

    I was using Athene's Gear Check but have recently switched to SiL as AGC was causing a huge delay on loading screens. One feature that SiL doesn't have that I would love it automatically scanning people in range that you mouseover.
    If you could add this functionality in a future update I would be most thankful!
  • #87

    I've done that in test builds and it doesn't work so well. 2 issues I ran into:

    Unless you heald your mouse there it wouldn't work as expected. This is due to difernt ways of identifying data sources/targets. rInspect Request is done via UnitID but inspectready is a GUID then the final inspect is UnitID. Therfore I need to hold onto UnitID<->GUID information and UnitID mouseover can change fast.

    You also as meowgoddess stated you run into the inspect limit vary fast and there is no way to tell that you hit it. There isn't a published number (last i looked) but that can be messed up by other addons also inspecting people.

    I really wish there was a proper libinspect that all addons could share and offered some basic caching of data.

    GS did that before, but Blizzard decided to block the function.
  • #84
    Is it possible to add functionality to (auto)exchange your DB with other guild members that use the addon - as it was with Gearscore?
  • #88

    That is something I would like to do. It mostlikely would be another addon. I'm going to start working on repacking the addon to be more of a Recount/Skada/DBM file structure as in have SiL-Core, SIL-PvP, SIL-Reporting, SIL-Social etc..

    Adding possibilities to see if people have PvP gear equipped into this addon? Now when you can easily get 371 ilvl gear from PvP, people starts equipping them to get their Ilvl up so they can "cheat" and join raids, whatsoever. So would love to have a feature to be able to see if a person has any PvP items equipped. Thanks!
  • #83
    Sorry, I'm on a little bit of a wow break right now..

    I have a plugin for SiL that shows the % of PvP gear requires latest SiL beta (I will prob re-post the beta as release today tho). I looked into giving a raw resilience number however discovered that the enchant/gem api is next to non existent for stats.
