5.1 Site Features: New Tooltips and Item Upgrades
Over this past week, the Wowhead team has implemented new site tools reflecting 5.1 changes: many Item Upgrade tools and redesigned tooltips!
Upgrading an item via currency is a unique feature added in 5.1 in which players can
permanently upgrade all ilvl 458+ gear by 8 ilvls
. It's not really obvious to calculate how an item will scale up, so we designed a bunch of tools to help you out!
Item Comparison Tool
now supports Item Upgrades. An "Upgrade" option has been added to the item menu (click on the icon to access), which will automatically adjust the tooltip and all the stats. Go to
to get started!
Search results now display an "Upgrades" column between "Req." and "Side." This column displays icons if the item can be upgraded, and mousing over an icon shows an upgraded version for easy reference. There is also a new search filter:
Can Be Upgraded
Item Upgrades are now available in XML: Just add &upgd=X after &xml, where X is 1 or 2.
Toggle options on all item pages display an approximation of the upgraded stats, including trinket procs, which aren't displayed in the in-game UI. Quick Facts displays the currency cost for all upgrades.
We added an option to our advanced tooltip code to display upgraded items instead of the basic version. Adding "upgd=" and specifying the upgrade amount (1 or 2) will display the new version. As an example,

Blizzard extensively redesigned their in-game tooltips for 5.1. While the new layout takes some getting used to, the information is presented in a more organized fashion. We've remodeled Wowhead's tooltips to match Blizzard's new layout.
The ilvl and upgrade level of an item is now shown in yellow near the top.
All secondary stats are displayed in green as "+" rather than "Equip: Increases your ." This information is also higher on the tooltip.
Based on user feedback earlier this month, we also enhanced our tooltips to display some additional information. While nothing beats reading Wowhead comments and browsing screenshots, sometimes it's helpful to see little things like at what level you learn a revised ability in MoP. We've tried to keep the tooltips as tidy as possible and relay the most essential information, since having a huge tooltip cover the article you're reading isn't fun.
Achievements: Number of points rewarded, faction-specific, account-wide progress
Abilities: Class, required level, required specialization, new layout highlighting ability changes per spec, race.
Items: Account-wide mounts, required ilvl for gems, stackable amounts, drop location, drop percentage.
Battle Pets and Daily Quests now marked as such on top right.
The tooltip code for external sites was also updated to include
more customization options
for icons, link colors, and link names.
