Question about RPPM mechanics

General Discussion
With 5.3 on the horizon, ilvl upgrades are back. I've been wondering about the effect of these upgrades on certain RPPM trinkets, and hope to get some clarification:

-If I upgrade a trinket which doesn't have an increasing proc value (Rune or UVLS, for instance) with VP, does the RPPM proc rate scale instead?
Yes. For these special trinkets like RoRO or UVLS the proc rate increases with ilvl.
Definitely worth confirmation!

Yes. For these special trinkets like RoRO or UVLS the proc rate increases with ilvl.

And here it is. :)

I have this bookmarked just for something like this.

Roughly, it ends up as something like:
502: 75% of normal chance
522: 95% of normal chance
528: 100%

And I didn't bother to figure out the Heroic and Heroic Thunderforged but the formula is there, so plug in the numbers.
For the nitty Gritty that people so love to ignore, the equation for RoRO and UVLS are as follow:

RoRO = .92 * (1.1)*(1/(1.15^((528-item level)/15)))

UVLS = .50 * (1.05) [if Boomkin, * (0.65)] * (1/(1.15^((528-item level)/15)))

I... I was quoted by Zarhym. I never thought I'd see this day.
Sorry, I don't know if this is the correct place to ask this, But i reallly cant find a definite answer on this. Does Horridon's Last Grasp rppm increase with ilvl and/or upgrading it.

^^^^
Any chance to get a blue confirmation on this? Wherever I check sometimes they say the proc chance increases with item level and sometimes that the only change are the stats that proc keeping the chance the same (BotH, Wooshulay, HLG)
