How to get into 5.2 LFR?

I thought the 5.2 LFR had only an iLvl requirement (various sources seem to agree that this was lowered to 480 in mid-January on the PTR). My choices there stubbornly refuse to light up ("hey gnomie - you don't meet the minimum requirements for this raid") despite having over 480. A couple of people in general chat told me there was some achievement necessary - izzat true? Anybody know what's needed to get into those things?

Thanks. *sigh* - life is just an extended conspiracy of loot-denial...

Or they just didnt want people blowing through LFR before most guilds even had a chance to walk into normals.

Wait - have I misunderstood something? LFR is the weenie version of raids, yes? Ppl will gear in LFR and then graduate to normals? I must confess I haven't done a grown-up Pandaria raid at all yet, much less anything out of 5.2...

They gave a schedule of opening for Normal/Heroic and LFR it's not really a surprise.

Well, for the benefit of those who were surprised anyway because they didn't see that, I'm gonna paste it here...

With the release of Patch 5.2: The Thunder King, the vast Throne of Thunder raid will become available. As in previous raid tiers, Raid Finder wings and availability difficulties will be staggered.

To access the new Raid Finder wings you will need a minimum average item level (ilevel) of 480.

This is our current schedule based on a planned patch release date of March 5. If the patch is delayed, or if we determine any change is needed, we'll update this article.

March 5 – Normal Throne of Thunder

March 12 – Heroic Throne of Thunder and LFR Wing 1 "Last Stand of the Zandalari"

March 19 – LFR Wing 2 "Forgotten Depths"

April 2 – LFR Wing 3 "Halls of Flesh-Shaping"

April 16 – LFR Wing 4 "Pinnacle of Storms"
