    5.4 LFR ilvl requirement.

    If following the first 3 "tiers" requirement (460-470-480), it should be 490.
    But if consider the ilvl of the previous tier gears it should be 500ish (476 gears for 483, 483 for 502, 502 for 521), any speculation or confirmed report about which it is?

    edit, ptr shows it's 500.

    It will likely be 496 or 500.

    Well, MSV required 460 (previous "tier" was 463), HoF and ToES required 470 (previous tier was 476), and ToT required 480 (previous tier was 483), so between 495 and 500 seems most likely. If I had to guess, I'd say probably 498.

    Probably 500 would be my guess

    500 would require almost full Throne of Thunder gear. It's probably just gonna be 490 so you can get into it with minimal upgrades from Throne.

    ptr shows it's 500, time to spend more time gearing up alts....

    It should be 500 especially since they put upgrades back in. It'll still be 2 weeks of smart play to get a fresh alt up there with new honor gear and increased ToT LFR rates.

    Well we have at least 3 months before the next tier drops and that should be enough time for people to get to ilevel 500 without taking into mind that once it does drop Throne of Thunder loot will drop easier. Beyond an off hand and a trinket from lei Shen there is litterally nothing left for me to collect in LFR and I have all the Valor gear and I am ilevel 515.

    Shouldn't be hard for other people to get 500 ilevel in the next 3 months.

    Also you won't get access to LFR until 2 weeks after 5.4 hits so the hardcore world firsters can put down bosses first.

    ToT gear is 502. it's easy to get loot from Nalak and Oondasta at this point, and you also have the 522 valor vendor. heroic scenarios also reward 516 gear. It's also likely you'll have another way to get gear in 5.4. I have never killed a boss in ToT normal, have 1 nalak and 1 oondasta item, still 4 pre 5.1 items, 1 scenario item, 3 valor items and rest 502 LFR gear, and I have 507 itemlevel.

    it's not hard to get 500 itemlevel. through scenarios, you get 516 gear. through scenarios, heroic scenarios and LFR, you get valor for 522 gear. through world bosses, you get 522 gear.
    Because I want to say this every single day but don't want it to get a drag:
    1) The ingame store will only sell timesaver items. It won't affect balance.
    2) No, getting to 100 in half the time isn't pay2win. raids don't start until the second week, everyone has time to get there.
    4) getting charms faster is also not pay2win. getting those is easy, but not everyone has the time or want for dailies.

    With upgrades back in and 516s from scenarios, I don't see them making the requirement less than 500. I think it's safe to say there will probably be a few pieces of easy to get 500+ gear when 5.4 launches to help out, as well.

    edit: Current 522 valor gear will probably be reduced in price and 496 valor gear will be moved to justice or even further reduced in price. 496 gear + 8 in upgrades gets you over 500 already.

    Hope its 500, that way I can get away with only having killed 5 ToT bosses

    Is there updated information about the ilvl requirement of LFR in 5.4? Any confirmation whether it will be 500 or below?

  14. #14
    When it was open for testing gear was scaled to 496.

    What did they finally settle on? I can't seem to find a straight answer anywhere.

    I recall a interview, being summed up with them saying 495.
    Trying to find it :P

    Edit:
    Oh well. Remembered one ilvl wrong

    "To access the new Raid Finder wings, you’ll need a minimum average Item Level (ilvl) of 496 or higher."

    Moar edits:
    Is even on the frontpage of mmo now. Just search for 496 (what i did to find it), and you get there

    It's 496.

    Closing this, though, as it wasn't necessary to necro. That information was available in our news stories over the past few weeks.
