Example[]

  local r, g, b, hex = GetItemQualityColor(i)
  print(i, hex, _G["ITEM_QUALITY" .. i .. "_DESC"], hex:sub(5))
end

1 Common ffffffff
2 Uncommon ff1eff00
3 Rare ff0070dd
4 Epic ffa335ee
5 Legendary ffff8000

Details[]

GetItemQualityColor() was added in 1.9.1
If an invalid quality index is specified, GetItemQualityColor() returns white (same as index 1):
r = 1
g = 1
b = 1
hex = |cffffffff

Changes[]

  • Quality 7 was added in version Patch 3.0 for heirloom items
  • ITEM_QUALITY7_DESC is now defined as of Patch 3.1.1
  • Patch 6.1.2 introduced quality 8, WoW Token.
  • Patch 7.0.3 changed the Heirloom color from Heirloom ffe6cc80 to Heirloom ff00ccff. This was likely done to avoid confusion with Artifact ffe6cc80.
