Is item level cap changing?

Right now, item rating is capped at CP160. Is that increasing since the CP max is changing from 501?

    I hope not, I'm not grinding out more mats after just gearing 5 characters with all Gold gear

    Unless your CP160 gear gets changed to CP170/180 etc

    That's my thought as well, though I'm quite sure they won't upgrade equipment automatically - the better to keep us grinding!

    Max item level is not being increased in update 11.

    Safe guess is that eventually in a future update it will be increased.

    No it will remain the same.

    Yes definitely. But not with the next dlc. I think it will be December/January it will get raised, perhaps maybe all the way into next March
    "Did Ahmed not deserve a life?
    Ahmed never hurt a fly
    Ahmed never knew the politicians he was murdered by
    Certain times Ahmed wished that he could be a bird and fly
    Beyond the sky
    Escape the curse of birth that he was burdened by
    Ahmed never grew to let your racism internalise
    Water poured from every pore in his corpse while the nurses cried
    Ahmed was a beautiful person like you or I
    But are we?..
    Ahmed could have been a doctor, lawyer or an engineer
    Could have been a superstar but his life ended here
    Guess he was a shooting star burned bright and disappeared
    To some he seems to represent a menace in this hemisphere
    Let me here make the very essence of this message clear
    He was precious, many die like him every year
    Ahmed was a victim of resentment and relentless fear
    Now his soul surfs the waves I wish we could have kept him here"

    I didn't really believe that there would be 501 gear, but I thought they might bump it up to 170 or 180 gear to give us two more tiers.

    ZOS already has created CP180 mats (per a recent datamine) ... but hopefully it's well into next year before the actually raise the gear cap and use them.

    To be fair to Zenimax, it has been a year at this point since the 160 materials were produced and will be a year by Q4 where an entire zone was created to farm them. Introducing a new material in the next 6 months would not be a terrible horrible betrayal on their part and I wish more people would keep that in mind. Don't get me wrong, I want them to make sure their One Tamriel business (of which I am massively pessimistic) works out first before they go mucking with gear cap again, but it's not out of the question to expect it may happen with the Q4 update.

    We aren't necessarily betrayed by getting higher level items, but we are betrayed by the monotonous soul sucking gear grind that is most likely going to be attached to such higher level items.
    Don't tank

    Of all the things that I loved about Oblivion, the scaled content was not part of it, I'm from a "keep on the borderlands, Temple of Elemental Evil, Tomb of Horrors" mindset, I believe that people being stupid enough to go out into the world to do whatever they want should suffer consequences of getting their sorry butts killed in the most horrific way imaginable. They should have to pay massive repair costs and be forced to limp home in shame for daring to go where they were unprepared to go. The idea that scaling will allow anyone to go anywhere is so easily mucked up by even a single bad idea that I'm just not comfortable with it.

    That being said, I don't shout doom and gloom, I'm just pessimistic about the upcoming change on a personal level.

    I wish they never increase the gear cap, but instead introduced new materials with other properties like lower cost, higher dmg, higher regen and faster sneak etc. But keep the same gear tier so we dont have to craft all new gear
    Altmer Sorceror, magicka
    Bosmer Nightblade, stamina.
    Imperial Templar, stamina
    Redguard Warden, stamina

    I think that's the way it should be too. But, there's also something to be said for being able to do more content at your level. I'm not sure how it will end up, but hopefully it will open the doors for future expansions to be played by all players.

    I'd peg item level going up once a year but not by much like 20 -50 cp increments
    I'm everything that doesn't belong in the pact but i'm there anyway...
