Dungun Finder Gear scores for Cat?

Dungeons, Raids and Scenarios
Is there a gear score requirement to use Dungun finder to enter the Cataclysm dungeons normal and heroic? Or is it just based on you character level? If so can some one tell me what the requirements are or post the link?

Thanks in advance.
Heroics require level 85, and are said to require an average item level of 333.

Normals are based on character level, and 85 normals require a gear level of 305 (which is markedly easy to get)

EDIT: Updated with 85 normal requirement. Thanks Rubica!
Tier 1 Cata raid content is ilvl 359, correct? Just curious.
Yep. 85 Normals give 333, 85 heroics give 346, and T11 raids give 359
There is an iLevel average score of about 305 to get into level 85 dungeons, 333 for heroic dungeons.

305 is very easy to get -- a couple of weeks ago, I took a third copy of my main and leveled to 84 - ran one instance, and completed Mt. Hyjal and Deepholm, and had average 314.
If it helps at all the Gear required to use the LFD tool is decidedly lower than what other players would expect to see if the LK 5-mans are any indication. You could get in the reg dungeons with mostly blues and a green or two. If you even had ilvl 200 epics you would be fine to go into the heroic version of those instances.


The gear requirement varied from H FoS, to H PoS, to H HoR. Before they nerfed the requirement H HoR required an average item level of 219. In practice you needed quite a few 232s, since it was tricky replacing all the sub-219 items (trinkets in particular).

Considering that normals only drop 333, it will be a little tricky getting an average item level of 333. That means you will probably need a few items over 333 from crafting or archaeology.

It's only 329 required to get into heroics, but normals drop 333 + there are several 346/359 rep/craftables. It shouldn't be too bad to get into heroics.
