Item IDs

API Discussion
How does Blizzard / the API handle item id's? Is it set ranges for specific types of items? Is there a list somewhere that explains the item ID system?

ItemIds are just arbitrary increasing numbers that are assigned to new items as they are added to the game. There is no guarantee of any continuity in the numbers (I assume items get added internally and then removed before release) and no other meaning to them than just an id.
