Just checked out the PTR, and there's an ilvl486 requirement to enter the new LFR.
Now, there's no new 5 mans to buff our ilvl, so for non-raiders... exactly how are we supposed to reach this without PvP when the current LFRs drop 476 and 483s?
Am I missing something here? Do you expect non-raiders to spend months (to the point the raid after thunder king is released) getting valor to buy that gear for ilvl?
I know it's PTR, and it might just be inflated for testing purposes, but it seems a bit weird that you would place the ilvl requirement for the new raid above the ilvl of the gear that drops in the previous LFR.
If all you do is LFR? VP upgrades on your LFR gear.
If you do dailies like a normal person? Rep gear, which can get you 489-496 pieces.
The requirement is very, very easy to meet. Incredibly easy.
