"FYI, in no way can "competency" be determined by someone's armory. You could easily have someone decked out in epics under 2 dangerous circumstances:1. PvP welfare epics (no competency required)2. Genuine PvE epics obtained via gearing up (not paying attention in the raid/instance and just looting)"Um actually a great deal about competency can be determined by ones armory. PvP gear isn't an automatic disqualifier as many of the PvE-ers I know have PvP gear as well. Additionally, many (not all) of the PvPers I know have great situational awareness and are not likely to stand in fire, void circles, poisons, etc. For regular 5 mans my standards are more lenient than for heroics--but in both cases that armory tells a good story, including gearing (which demonstrates knowledge of class--you don't have to be in purples, but if you have a best in slot pre raid blue or even green, that speaks volumes), as well as the rep sheet which tells me how much of the content you may have seen to date.A couple of days ago a friend was in a tortured 5 man with a demo lock sporting AP and other melee stat gear, mixed with healing gear and some actual spell damage gear. Quite honestly, the complete lack of understanding about gearing was so profound it was shocking. This person was swapped for someone who knew how to play their class.
