Does an item with its level requirement reduced only affect the item with the affix, or does it affect all items?

It affects only the level requirement of the item its on, and its already factored in when you hover over the item. So if you see a level 45 weapon with -15 level requirements, its actually originally a level 60 weapon.

  • Note that when searching in the auction house, you would not see the level 45 item if you were e.g. searching for items level 40-50. You need to search for "Reduced Item Level Requirement" specifically and look for items higher than your level.

yx's answer is entirely correct, but this sale post demonstrates its potential for twinks.
