The LFR interface wouldn't let me select ICC 25 or TOC 25man last week, however, I have been upgrading since and now I no longer have a locks next to them. Did it change? I assumed it was because I didn't meet a gear requirement.

You said you upgraded. In which you meant gear right? You did meet the gear requirement for them.

He's asking because the article says there's no gear check for the raids, so there's a contradiction.

My death knight had the lock next to ToC and ICC and it said it was specifically because her gear wasn't high enough.If that isn't intentional, then Blizz should look into that.

Yeah, the comment in the article about raids not having a gear requirement is false.My priest started 3.3 with a gearscore of about 4400. When I first opened LFR, I couldn't queue up for TOC25 or TOGC10.I picked up a battered hilt (go go broken drop rate on the first day), and completed my Hammer of Purified Flame, bumping my gearscore to 4530. I could now queue for TOGC10, but still not TOC25.I upgraded my shoulders from naxx shoulders to Tier 9 (232) shoulders. With a new gearscore of 4600, I could put myself in LFR for TOC25 as well.I can now (with a gearscore of 4900) put myself into LFR for all TOC, and I believe ICCs. (no more locks next to the entries.)So, although you can always invite whoever you want to a raid -- the same way that you can invite anyone you want to a dungeon, if you want to fly there yourself -- you can't put yourself in Looking For Raid until you have more gear for some raids.

I think the comment in the article is referring to a premade raid group that is looking for more, not an individual raider looking to join a raid.The raid leader can invite and queue people who may or may not be adequately geared for the raid and the LFR interface won't check those people's gear. However if said raid is still looking for 2 healers, the LFR interface /will/ be checking the individuals' gear.
