They changed recommended level a while back. you still see red stats if you are too low to wear it, which would imply that you could wear it....but you can't. You will get the standard error " Your race and or deity combination cannot equip this item" or whatever it is. And I KNOW it has nothing to do with race or deity. My druid has a prelates lantern which is recommended level 51 and he got that error from 48 through 50. Finally when i dinged 51 I could put them on.
Please don't flame unless you have tried this.
As a side note. My War was wearing some Fierce when they changed this and he can still wear it evan though he in only 41. Can't wear the legs anymore though cause I took them off to test my theory. once ya take em can't put em back on. So if you're wearing something above your level? Take my word! don't take em off till you're high enough.
Then, if your curious? Make a mule and try to equip em.

Just wanted everyone to know how it's workin on both Ayonae Ro and Stormhammer right now.

I just put fierce heraldic BP, Greaves, Vambraces, Boots and a bracer on my 37 warrior, Yesterday. So for the crafted armors, what you're saying is wrong.

I do get a reduction in stats, but even so, they're such a big upgrade over acrylia bp/legs and cobalt in the other slots, that I am thrilled.

The prelates lantern is a different situation. It came from the revamped temple of Cazic Thule. ALL recommoneded level items from the temple are actually required level. My cleric has a prelates rubicite helm. Could not equip at 50, could at 51.

Most cases, recommended just means reduced stats, but for cazic thule loot, it really is required level.

When an item without an effect has a recommended level, does that mean that anyone under that level cannot equip it? And if not, then what does it mean?

When you equip it while you're under recommended level it will have a penalty now. I've seen it on my 49 warrior when some high level friends showed some of their gear to me. Like the ac would normally be 26, but to a 43 it'd be 24.. the further away from recommended level the bigger the penalty on the ac.
