Enchant IDs

See list of EnchantIds and SpellItemEnchantment.db2

Example: Item enchanted with  [Minor Stamina].

"|cff0070dd|Hitem:80921:4721:::::::36:103::1:::::::|h[Saboteur's Stabilizing Bracers]|h|r"

Gem IDs

Gems are listed by itemID for each socket.

Example:  [Helm of Elemental Binding] socketed with  [Perfect Brilliant Bloodstone] for only the 2nd gem slot.

"|cff0070dd|Hitem:87451:::41438:::::53:257:::1:6658:2:9:35:28:1035:::::|h[Helm of Elemental Binding]|h|r"
4: 41438 -- gemID2

Suffix IDs

WoW Icon update.png Item suffixes in Classic are given to items that get randomized stat ratings e.g. "of the Bear" and refer to (multiple) enchantIDs.

Example: Suffix with a positive ID from Burning Crusade Classic, obtained during Classic.

"|cff1eff00|Hitem:9849::::::776:661453184:33:::::::::|h[Conjurer's Hood of the Owl]|h|r"

Example: Suffix with a negative ID from Burning Crusade Classic.

"|cff1eff00|Hitem:6267::::::-9:1379794946:33:::::::::|h[Disciple's Pants of the Owl]|h|r"

Bonus IDs

BonusIDs can adjust item levels, modify stats, change item quality, add item titles, append words to item names, add sockets, adjust appearance, adjust required equip level, and possibly many more. They can be looked up in ItemBonus.db2.ParentItemBonusListID

Example: Timewarped Warforged  [Gauntlets of Vindication]. If say you want to find all possible Warforged Bonus IDs, look up the ItemNameDescription IDs for "warforged" and filter for IDs 11428|13220.

Other details

  • Any Transmogrification info is not supplied to item links.
  • Item links obtained from the Void Storage will give a generic GetItemInfo() link which only contain the itemID, linkLevel and specializationID since all modifications will have been removed.

Examples

/run SendChatMessage("\124cffffffff\124Hitem:6948::::::::54:257:::::::::\124h[Hearthstone]\124h\124r")
The first number is the ItemID for a  [Hearthstone]. The next 7 values are empty, which tells the client it has no enchants, gems and extra stats. The 9th number means that the link originated from a level 54 character. The 10th number 257 (SpecializationID) specifies the character to be a Holy Priest.


/run SendChatMessage("\124cffa335ee\124Hitem:18832:2564:::::::::::::::::\124h[Brutality Blade]\124h\124r")
The first number is the ItemID for a  [Brutality Blade]. The second number (EnchantId) denotes that it is enchanted with +3 agility.
