low item level
I'd go back and quest a bit (should also be able to get atleast one piece of 450 gear (bracers)from Klaxxi in Dread Wastes if you do the quest chains) and it should work out for you easily enough.
Blizzard, 440 seem pretty arbitrary considering how easy heroics are. I think it could have been 430 and no one would have noticed. Either way there should have been a better transition from normal instancing to heroics in terms of item level requirement. And why do the quests in heroic only instances reward 440 items when the bosses drop 463? Why are JP rewards only 450 for that matter? And a lot of blue quest rewards in later zones are under 440. It's really all over the place. :/
If you want to avoid PvP gaming, you can buy crafted 450 (?) rings from JC, and killing Corin Direbrew should net you a few 470 trinkets.
