But yesterday I saw someone looking for other people for a flex run, I whisped him and told him my ilvl, he said I'm too low as 496 is the minimum to enter LFR.
I know that, but one ilvl shorter makes total difference in a group? Would I be the one slowing the group down just because I can't do crits like 496? Also, if I were to join a flex group, I would probably get some loot that jumps my ilvl to way above 500.
So my question is: is it mandatory for a flex run to be 496 as a minimum? Or is people just that picky and let's face it, "elitist" on how they choose people for the group? Kinda reminds me that guy that said others were asking for the "Ahead of the curve" achiev for ToT.
