All beta testing had gear scaled to 476, so that was the data they likely did most of their tuning around, and I'm fairly certain everything got at least a small HP buff since those tests.10/03/2012 08:26 AMPosted by ThorivIt's tuned for 476. Either compensate with player skill or wait until LFR comes out next week.
Where you get this number?
Plus LFR is intended to be a step in gear progression for fresh 90s (heroics > lfr > current raids).
No it's not. That's why blizz postponed lfr a week (which saddens me).
10/03/2012 10:34 AMPosted by Goblisno, they postponed it so the progression chasers didn't have to rely on the RNG of a single LFR run to gain or lose advantage in the race. LFR is very much still a part of the progression.

Yah where did you get that number? Definitely made for somewhere around 460. You're supposed to progress from Heroic dungeons (463) to normal raids (476). LFR is just there as a middle step. There's very little opportunity to get 476's before you actually raid.
If you're counting heroic dungeons as 463, then normal raids are 489+

This is just wrong. LFR was intended to give players who are either not good enough, not committed enough, or don't care enough to deal with even normal mode raids a chance to see the raid content. Blizzard didn't want to go through allllll the trouble creating content that not everyone had the chance to see.
It just so happens that it CAN be used as a stepping stone to raids, but it is not a necessary or intended "second step" from heroics to raids.
This has become a completely different question than the original question then. The average ilvl required to START MV is tuned to heroic dungeons. It is not necessary to have ever done LFR to get through the first 2 bosses IMO.10/03/2012 01:09 PMPosted by DroodhealzUnfortunately it has become quite necessary based on the my statement above. We're jumping 2 tiers.
