Unfortunately, the system was not setup very well and makes it very easy to "game" the system with out even realizing it. The system doesn't look at gear you have equipped right now or even the best gear you've ever equipped for a slot but actually looks at any gear you could have equipped. This leads to several possible way that a class could end up with a higher score than what they are actually wearing and I haven't found any in-game way of telling your currently equipped average i-level. I'm sure there are add-ins that could do it for you but I haven't bothered looking for one.For example, I've been leveling as resto/elemental but was enhance/resto for most of wrath so I have picked up decent enhance gear as I get the chance since I may end up switching back. This has lead to several situations where I had higher level gear for enhance than elemental/resto and at first I didn't realize how this was affecting the ilevel score. When I did my first couple heroics I was probably 3 or 4 ilevel below the requirement in the gear I actually had equipped. Not because I was trying to game the system but because it just happened and I hadn't realized it.
