ItemLevelDKP is an addon for calculating DKP based on the item's item level, quality and slot. The result is a price tuned to an item's worth based on what Blizz gives the item of stats. The calculation is based around the fact that the quality of an item will decide some of the price:
     Blue      = (itemLevel - 1.84) / 6.4
     Epic      = (itemLevel - 1.3) / 5.2
     Legendary = itemLevel
ilvl 359 gives:
     Blue      = 55.8
     Epic      = 68.8
     Legendary = 359
This is the factor which you base your cost on. Secondly you have a slot mod which is a factor that deal with items getting less item budget based on slot.
     head = 1
     neck =  0.54
     shoulder = 0.74
     chest = 1
     waist = 0.74
     legs = 1
     feet = 0.74
     wrist = 0.54
     hand = 0.74
     finger = 0.54
     trinket = 0.68
     cloak = 0.54
     weapon = 1
     shield = 0.65
     2h weapon = 1.5
     MH weapon = 1
     OH weapon = 1
     off hand = 0.52
     bow/xbow/gun = 1.5
     wand = 0.50
     relic = 0.30
This is multiplied with the base cost from item level and quality. A epic, ilvl 359 2h sword will be:
     DKP = (itemLevel - 1.3) / 5.2 * 1.5
     DKP = 103.2
Pricing is limited to armor and weapons, but stuff like tabards and thrown weapons are not included.


  • Make a config panel to edit some factors and numbers.
  • Support lists of item priority?
  • Work out a formula for Legendary Items (Just using item level isn't going to work anymore)


Send me patches on either of the channels listed below. I cannot guarantee all modifications implemented into the addon, but I will do my best to expand ItemLevelDKP.
