Clearly its not that simple. That's assuming that every item is exactly the same item level, which it isn't.

1. you thought LFR would be available at 450
2. you misrepresented the story
3. I am wrong about the 460 requirement of LFR
Or 4. I said the highest chest was 450. She had higher item level items - which probably caused some kind of gap like that. I am not lying about the story, there's no need to.

But the story seems unlikely, simple math tells us her average-ilvl should have gone up with 2 or 3.. Not 1.
That's exactly the reason why we bought it, it was surely going to give at least the needed 2 - But it didn't!

2. If you have a few weak items they drag your score down massively. It is an average after all.

3. wait, so items in your bags effect item level?
I should probably put Shadow's Edge back in the bank then...

4. Thats not quite true.

I have a glaive (legendary) in my bag along with maladath from BWL. My score is 470 something on my non equipped items.

I think the system takes into account items with a value over x amount to be counted towards your score when they are not equipped.

It uses the highest level item that you own for each slot. If you're carrying around lower level gear, it won't count against you as long as you have appropriate-level gear for that slot as well.

6. ilvl is the average of what you've equipped and what is your highest ilvl set if I'm not mistaken.

There are two average ilvl values. One for only the items you have equipped in each slot and one for the highest ilvl items in each slot that you have on your character (either equipped or in bags). The latter is what is used to see if you can enter dungeons or raids in Dungeon Finder and LFR.

This is obviously a load of crap. You gained a net 59 ilvls. 59 would give you way more than a single ilvl.
