DetailsEdit

If you have never seen the item that belongs to the Item ID or Item Link it will return nil.
All string returns (itemName, itemType, itemSubType) are localized. Prior to 1.9, itemEquipLoc was localized also.
As of Patch 3.2 the 11th returned value is the Vendor Sell Price for that item.
