I find it surprising to hear that there are in fact gear checks being done by the DF. I was involved in a PUG a couple of days back and we were ported to Forge of Souls. The healer appeared, stated that he wasn't geared for this heroic and left. We waited a few moments and a second healer was assigned to the group and ported in. I inspected his gear and was surprised to see an average iLvl score of 175. He was primarily geared in blues, but still had four or five green pieces. He admitted had just reached 80. He was up front about, and asked if we were comfortable with a healer who hadn't healed a heroic yet. Of course we politely declined, and we went on to complete the instance with a third, well-geared healer. I wonder then if gear level is ignored by the DF under certain situations, as in when four members of a pug are sitting in a dungeon already, with a recently departed fifth.
