As you've probably heard, Blizzard put an end to the
speculations about progressive itemization in Classic and the TL;DR is that we're getting item gating per phase but the item stats
will all be in their 1.12 state. While I strongly disagree with their decision as evident by the site going into mourning mode for the
past ~24 hours, I will keep it up and keep maintaining it for the community both for historical purposes and for searching and filtering
For now the only change I've made is that
has/with/is will only search the final version of the item instead of considering all the versions
like it did before. Once we start getting more information about exact nature of per-phase item gating (since this is also not 100% clear as
evident by this twitter thread) I will make the necessary modifications to be as
accurate as possible. For now, the phases and gating are still vanilla-like, meaning some T2 still drops in MC pre-1.4, the 1.5 MC drops are not
available in early phases, etc.
As for other future updates; I've been working on a little query builder UI that will let you select mods/stats/etc. with multi-select dropdowns instead of having to type all the search operators by hand. A little preview:
I encourage everyone to submit feedback with bug reports/suggestions/etc. in the GitHub Issues located over here.
