For pugs? 40% higher than what's necessary.

40% seems a little low, maybe like 100%, with higher ilvl than the gear that drops in it.

The highest ilvl you can easily get in trade chat.

If you have random person A with ilvl of 510 and random person B with ilvl of 540 you're taking the person with ilvl of 540.

If you're wondering for forming your own group in week 1? I'd go with like 515-520.

It's Flex though, you can take both. You don't have to fill a set roster, just as many as you can nab

Its trade chat.
Its pugs
And its not LFR.
So its going to end badly.
(Unless you set high requirements to make it easier)

depends on your server's population/progression, though technically it's cross-realm doable

on a high pop/progression server like mal'ganis --> 600 required

on random dead zero heroic progression server --> 520 required

To answer your question, there is no requirement.
Thats not to say youll get into one with 463 gear, the Raid Leader will probably want a minimum of 500-520.

The ilvl of last tier's normal raid gear is usually a reasonable place to start for current tier normal raid gear requirements, and with Flex Mode supposedly being about 6 ilvls lower than normal, that should be factored in as well. All that being said, I think having at least a 510 ilvl is a reasonable start for SoO Flex. You can take anything lower than that, but performance issues will start to become apparent too far down the ilvl ladder.

Its cross realm for a reason.
And top raiders will more then likely run with their own guilds, and pug a few spots with high gear to prevent carry.
And then the pugs that dont want to fail will have requirements

Why on earth would top raiders downgrade and run flex? Disenchant everything? Serious question here. It's a lower ilvl than 10 or 25 man raids so unless they're just going after enchanting mats you're not going to see top raiders in there.

Atleast for the starting tier pov

They'd have to be full TF for nothing to be worthwhile, And then their the trinkets + setbonuses

off-specs: If they're hardcore their off-spec is going to be ToT heroic. Only a minor upgrade.

Alts: Not exactly sure a hardcore raiding guild would be doing flex for alts. If the alts have the gear for flex, they have the gear for reg.

Playing with friends: Only valid on I see here and it does not equate to flex being just for top raiders like the person I quoted said.

Eh maybe when the world and server first races are going on. I can see that. But that by no mean places flex as being for top raiders only.
