In game update 5.1, when we return to the desert moon of Endor, we will find out moose companion waiting for us to carry our Klingon logicians to Azeroth, all the while shouting Muad'Dib.
Do you think they'll ease the iLvl restrictions in patch 4.2 for heroics and so forth since the difficulty is getting toned down?
No. The heroics are relatively easy right now, given the average gear level has increased quite a bit from what it was at the beginning of Cataclysm (at which point I contend they were actually overtuned a bit, or at least not in sync to what the majority of the player base was able to do). If you're having problems in heroics (non-ZA/ZG), it's likely because your group can't execute the fights properly, not because there's not enough DPS, HP, HPS, etc. Blizzard lowering the iLevel requirements would make DPS, HP, and HPS all become a big factor -- and I don't think many people want to play with folks in greens.
Getting an average of iLevel 329 gear isn't hard. I finished a few weeks ago leveling a warlock, and I was running heroics about two hours after I dinged 85 without buying any gear off the AH or crafting any of it. Run some normals, get the rep gear, and you'll be at 329 very, very fast.
Will you be able to upgrade crafted items to their heroic equivalent using the heroic upgrade drops in Firelands?
There are no upgradeable crafted items that I've seen in patch 4.2.
Best gray item ever?
