    LFR Item Level 5.2

    So, I just saw the new gear for LFR/Normal/Heroic T15. How come the item level is so far spread apart from LFR -> Normal? It seems that it is has a difference of 20, versus 13 for the 5.0 raids. This isn't a QQ post or anything I'm just wondering why this is.

    Mogu'shan vaults lfr had an ilvl of 476 didn't it? That a difference of 20 with the 496. I guess Heart of fear and the terrace were 483 because they really were more difficult. Maybe they want the difference of 20 to be their base and when ther is only one raid...it means all the gear has a difference of 20

    Mogu LFR = 476 Normal = 489
    Terrace and HoF LFR = 483 Normal = 496

    If you knew how to add that would be 13.

    In addition to the 20 ilvl disparity, LFR has no thunderforged gear.

    Blizzard's usual ilvl pattern doesn't work in MoP like they did the last few xpacs. Their numbers are inflating more crazily.

    I guess this is what the Dragonball Z characters felt like when they started on Namek :P

    There was a blue post by a dev describing their intent. The ilvl jump comes from stat scaling.
    I'm on my phone atm, but if you check recent blue posts you should find it
