    Like most of you I have been farming my ass off during these invasions, on my 29's and 19's, but I was wondering if you would lose out on the opportunity to get extra stats at certain levels if you hadn't gotten any WF'd invasion gear on that character. That's why I wanted to make a list of all the different twink levels to see if you actually need WF'd invasion gear at that level.

    Feel free to contribute with any useful information such as what ilvl you need to go beyond to start gaining stats (like ilvl 24 @19), the breakpoints from where you will actually see a stat change, what ilvl the WF'd invasion gear has at said level and how good they are compared to other pieces of gear you can get at that level.

    Level 10:
    WF'd ilvl: 25
    BiS

    Level 19:
    WF'd ilvl: 34
    BiS
    Base ilvl: 24
    First breakpoint: 41.x

    Level 20:
    WF'd ilvl: 35
    BiS

    Level 29:
    WF'd ilvl: 44
    BiS

    Level 39:
    WF'd ilvl: 53
    BiS
    Normal invasion gear is 44 ilvl.
    The bad kind of WF'd gear (by some referred to as Junkforged, Stage 1 WF'd etc) is 43 ilvl.

    Level 49:
    WF'd ilvl: 63
    BiS
    Normal invasion gear is 54 ilvl.
    The bad kind of WF'd gear (by some referred to as Junkforged, Stage 1 WF'd etc) is 53 ilvl.

    Level 50:
    WF'd ilvl: ??

    Level 60:
    WF'd ilvl 95
    BiS (but apparently not necessary)
    @Rob has told me that for 60's (and maybe also for every other bracket) there is a "ceiling" for ilvl. You wll not gain any stats after you've reached 75 ilvl.
    First breakpoint: somewhere around 40's? Can anyone confirm?

    Level 70:
    WF'd ilvl: 157 (@DeLindsay right?)
    Not BiS
    First breakpoint: 184 (unreachable according to @Fx)

    Level 80:
    WF'd ilvl: ??

    Level 85:
    WF'd ilvl: ??

    Level 90:
    WF'd ilvl: ??

    Level 99:
    WF'd ilvl: 680 (+10) and 690 (+20)
    BiS apart from from WoD crafted items.
    Lvl 99 Demon Hunters can proc a 710 Warglaive from their starting zone.
    Lvl 99 twinks might be able to get higher ilvl rewards from the Legion zones, and maybe also an Artifact Weapon.

    49s get ilvl 63 wf'd gear, dunno about the breakpoint yet but all above ilvl 54 is pretty much good since high ilvl gear is almost non existent for 49s. also the wf'd gear is way better in terms of power when it comes to pve and wpvp :)

    - Correct, LvL 70's Invasion +10 iLvL WF is 157 and not BiS (from an iLvL perspective for iPvP nor a PvE perspective for Main Stat).

    - Level 99 has 2 WF: 680 and 690 (+10 and +20). It is BiS unless you're using WoD Crafted in that Slot. The only caveat to that is DH 99's who can proc up to 710? Epic during their Starting Zone and can equip the 720 Warglaives that can be upgraded to 745 (must obtain said Warglaives on a Level 100 DH). It's also possible (at least on Beta) to obtain as high as 708 from the final Quest in each of the non-110 Zones and it might be possible to equip high(er) level BoE Greens from Legion Zones, but cannot confirm this. Lastly it's been said that 99's should be able to get (1) of their Artifact Weapons and upgrade it at least some from finite World Chests.

    Yes, if you get one to +20 Proc on a 100 DH it'll be 720 at 1 of 6 so can be upgraded to 745 with (5) Coelesced Fel's and then mailed to a 99 DH on your Account for a double Weapon equip of 745. Otherwise a 99 DH can still use the 725 variants (starting at 700) if you never get the 720 Procs.

    could you link his armory? .. are glaives the only weapons get warforged at lv100?
    and does that mean that weapon can be upgraded to 745? .. although description of the item that upgrades weapons say up to 725..?

    Correct unless once it's Live Blizz changes their minds and doesn't allow Characters below 100 to get even 1 Artifact Weapon.

    I'll see if I can find it, he only plays 1-2 times/week and on a diff Realm than me so I don't remember his DH's name. As for what it upgrades to, yes it would go all the way to 745 if it proc'd 720. Also, ALL Weapons have the same chance to proc 710 or 720, not just the Warglaives. Someone linked a 710 Bow in local a few days ago in Northern Barrens so it obviously happens, just rare as shit. Next time I see anything like it, any Weapon 710 or 720, I'll SS it for you all to see.

    I've now had two WF'd items drop on my 39, they were both ilvl 43 which is 1 ilvl lower than my heirlooms and the normal invasion loot. I don't know if these WF'd items were the 0+ or 10+. Have anyone experienced the same?

    It is the same for 49s, hence why the upgraded items are at 63 and not 64 :/ probably something wrong with the encoding on player in the 30-49 lvl range

    This just confused me:
    But anyway, normal and Stage 1 Warforged invasion gear has 53 ilvl while BoA has 54? And Stage 2 Warforged gear has 63 ilvl @ lvl 49?

    yes and it is the same at 39 I believe, kind of proves that Blizz has done some poor coding for the scaling on the drops from the chests from the invasions
