    In general, normal items have no level requirements, exeptionals have lvl 25 and elites start at 42 or so, and varies up to 66 or so.

    Rares and magical items have this "base" requirement, and if they have any affixes with a higher requirement, the req is set to that.

    Crafts are the same way, but crafts with 4 random affixes (ilvl 71 items and higher) get a +22 to that, sometimes making life leech rings clvl 96 to use.

    Sets and uniques have their own level requirements, which do not change.

    Now the upgrading comes in. Upgrading from normal to exeptional will give a +5 on the required (base) level (which 25 if the old level was 24 or less).

    If the item is upgraded from exeptional to elite, the same rule applies, but now the base requirement is not always 25, it is something between 42 and 66 based on the item type. The upgrade will also give +7 on the required level instead of +5.

    Items upgraded twice get +5 +7 on their requirement.

    But of course, you _could_ use the calculator :D:D:D:D
