"I'm having trouble imagining that this would really be an issue. I mean, if buying the Awesome Chestpiece of Ultra-Coolness +1000 granted you the item level equipment achievement, wouldn't that mean that it was better than whatever you had before, pretty much automatically?"iLevel doesn't necessarily mean an item is better. This is particularly true for classes that use relics in their ranged weapon slot. For instance, I got the epic achievement on my prot paladin by equipping the iLevel 213 libram that buffs consecration by a pitiful amount, and promptly switched it back out for the iLevel 200 libram that buffs my block value as it is superior to the consecration one in nearly every conceivable scenario.Another likely candidate for lower iLevel being superior are trinkets.Comparing iLevel of gear is fine for a quick comparison, but gearing for it doesn't mean you have best in slot unless you are doing a silly vehicle encounter that scales specifically with your iLevel.
