Returns RGB color codes for an item quality.
r, g, b, hex = GetItemQualityColor(quality)
- quality (number) - The numeric ID of the quality from 0 (Poor) to 7 (Heirloom).
- r (number) - The Red component of the color (0 to 1, inclusive).
- g (number) - The Green component of the color (0 to 1, inclusive).
- b (number) - The Blue component of the color (0 to 1, inclusive).
- hex (string) - The 4 character hex UI escape sequence for this color
for i = 0, 8 do local r, g, b, hex = GetItemQualityColor(i) print(i, hex, _G["ITEM_QUALITY" .. i .. "_DESC"], hex:sub(5)) end
- Will print all qualities, in their individual colors (example result from version 6.2.4).

- 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
- 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.
