I had this problem where I couldn't join a random heroic. I got three items, and the final one took me from an average ilvl of exactly 177 (counting each slot equally, including trinkets and staff) to 178.56 by replacing 162 green pants with 187 blues, and as soon as I had that last item the random heroic choice went from grey to white. I was left with one green item on, a trinket. All of my highest gear was the gear I had equipped (no better stuff in my bags).I know this still leaves a lot unknown, but it's just another data point may help figure it out. Even if they, say, don't include trinkets, mine were both 174 so they would have had little impact on this average.The gear requirement is probably higher than it really needs to be because once you meet it, you are eligible for all ilvl200-dropping heroics, up through the hardest ones like UP and HoL, rather than allowing you to run, say, UK and Nexus, which any fresh 80 in questing greens could do.The best solution is probably to run regular random dailies after you hit 76 or 77. A friend who recently hit 80 did this and he didn't run into the heroic gear lock-out.
