It's what kids text each other each time they gain a level.

It's a background stat used to determine the quality of affixes an item can receive and why A4 inferno items can have better rolls than A1 inferno items, even though the items are both level 60 requirement.

It refers the the 'budget' that an item has for allocating stats.

A higher iLvl means a higher budget which means that overall more stats can be put on that particular item. Usually a higher iLvL item (when properly itemised) will be better than a lower iLvL item.

Imagine if you could level your item by killing stuff with it, then distribute stat points

ilvl determines the "budget" for stats. An item with a higher ilvl has higher min/max rolls for affixes, dps/armor, etc.

It's a new iPhone app that will help players level quicker. Android users are in an uproar about it.

Is ilvl the same as required level up to 59?

They should call it "epeen" instead. Makes more sense.

I'm not sure it works the same like in WoW, but I don't think its too much of a stretch to think it works in a similar manner.

Every item has what's called an item level. An item level basically dictates how much of spefic stats can be put on any piece of gear.

An example would be like this (Using made up numbers, this is just to explain the concept of item level). A chest piece has an item level of 20. Due to its item level it gets 200 Stat points to put on the gear.

So Let's say 100 Armor = 60 Stat Points.
Primary Stat (STR, VIT, INT, DEX) = 1 Stat Point.
Secondary Stat (IE Critical Strike, Magic Find, Resist All) = 3 Stat points.
Socket = 10 Stat points.

So the chest piece might have an set up of...
Random Chest (Item Level 20, Total of 200 Stat Points)
100 Armor (60 Stat Points)
+ 40 Strength (40 Stat Points)
+ 40 Vit (40 Stat Points)
+ 20 Resist All (60 Stat Points)

I'm 100% these aren't the actual numbers of what Blizzard uses, but you can grasp the concept. Higher Item Level = More Stats. Also generally as a specific stat goes up a lot, you may hit diminishing returns on stat value. So after a certain point it may not cost the same amount of Stat Points, and would cost more.

I hope this helps :3

Not necessarily, but I don't think Blizzard is going to expose those. Only the ilvl of the 60+ gear.
