item level of a drop (ilvl) ? "Item levelâ€ (Ilvl) = each item in the game has an ilvl. Itâ€™s a value associated with the item that allows the item to have different abilities or commonly called affixes. This ilvl is based on how the item was created by the game. Queston : what makes the item level ? I suppose it depends on the monster (monster level) who dropes it. What else ? Character level and/or quality level ? Is there and exact formula or is it just random ? For example : my hammerdin (character level = 90) kills Hell Mephisto (monster level = 87). He dropes a Vipermagi (quality level = 36 ?) What is the item level of that drop or is it just random ?
