Legitimate question but probably ending up not being posted in the right thread; if Blizzard is using iLevel averages to lock people out of certain content (HCs, Raids etc), does anyone know if said iLevel will increase with whatever raid patch 4.1 will bring us?My thinking is that if they do increase it, then people who joon the raiding game late will have a hard time playing catch up, as they'll have to run Outdated content first of all, just to be able to step foot in the current stuff. Obviously, they may be able to increase their average iLevel with vendor bought token gear, but that wouldnt get them a fully kitted out toon.On the flip side though, if they DON'T increase the average iLevel, then Little Johnny just-dinged-85-a-minute-ago is going to get carried through the new, 'current' content by those who were available to raid the previous tier.

They're not going to increase it. It's one of those things they liked about the Wrath model of raids, how it allows you to catchup.

Hmm, I guess I can see that side of it too, but coming fresh out of raiding ICC (having completely missed Ulduar and ToC, and being pretty well Naxx geared) - on a personal level at least - I couldn't help but feel like I was holding the group back due to being under-geared.Blizzard obviously know what they're doing though, so I guess I just shut up and carry on :3
