    Where did u farm?

    I've done some farming in Stonetalon to see if I could get a blue and how it would scale. No luck with the blue, but with the greens I got the following, all farmed on a 20:-

    Armor
    (3) req lvl 16
    (2) req lvl 13
    (1) req lvl 15 [seems it did not scale?]

    Weapon
    (4) req lvl 15
    (1) req lvl 20

    Not sure why I'd be getting req lvl 15's & 13's in Stonetalon :(

    Would a lvl 24 toon likely get more req lvl 19 or 20 items?

    There seems to be a few factors, one there is a minimum level req for the zone (-4). So in WPL, that's 35-60, most things are dropping req lvl 31. Even though I'm farming on something that could and should roll lower (29s and 34s) I'm getting 31s+.

    Two, the req level is dependent on your character level. I think it's a range, but the majority of drops are 5 levels below current level. So farming on a higher level should net you something actually useful for your 20/29. What level that is, idk, trying to find that out. I thought it was 5 above, so a lvl 34 priest should get 29 greens, but it's not working out that way yet. The 34 farming was in WPL though, so it might still work in the correct zone. But yes, if you farm on the character you want the gear on it's way lower, which you see in stonetalon.

    Three, some items just straight up scale to your level. They seem to be items that don't end with a suffix. I got a staff on my 29, can't remember then name, but it was an older green, no suffix, just stamina and int, scaled to 29. Unfortunately the non suffix gear is pretty worthless since stats are so important.

    So farm I've been rare farming in Hinterlands and WPL. WPL seems out, because of the min level req. I got a level 24 plate helm on my 29, in Hinterlands, so plate wears have faith.

    I killed raptors/spiders in arathi highlands on a 29 warrior.. the mobs were 27-29 level... it did not matter for the below:

    Every piece of green armor that dropped was level 24.... every weapon that dropped was level 26.

    well it seems kinda stupid when uncommon item with the same ilvl as rares has more stats
    maybe blizzard finally fixing that in their own special way(by erasing x9 lvl greens from loot tables xd)
    inb4 gf'ed 29 greens became tokenworthy

    I farmed for over two hours in Wetlands with instant respawn. My level 20 (vet, no game-time) received almost entirely require level 13 greens, some 15 and some 16, and rarely 20. Since 13s drop like candy, my guess is that's the sweet spot for that toon's level. I'm guessing you might have to farm these drops on a toon of a different level. In this case, assuming this is true, my guess would be that if you want greens for a level 20, you'll want to farm on a level 27 or around there. Just my thoughts on what I saw, could be 100% wrong.

    Also, seems worth noting that my 20 didn't see any blues. My monk saw at least four, so take what you will from that. I'm not saying trials or toons without game-time can't receive blues but I heard talk about class trials not being able to get epic boes due to people exploiting that. Perhaps it's linked or I just got really unlucky. I don't know.

    If you farm scarlet monastery on a level 34 toon you get lv29 req greens but lv34 req blues
    If you farm on a level 29 toon you get lv21-24 greens and lv29 blues.

    I think it really depends on the zone and players level.

    Unlocked the 32 since all he could get was 26s, hit 33. First rare mob drops 29, great.
    Made a 33 on the correct server (was just testing on that one). 6 rares kills; items 26, 26, 26, 26, 26, 28

    If it's random, w'e I can deal with that. But idk what this is
