What are the WoW Classic WotLK Heroic Dungeon requirements?

WoW Classic WotLK Dungeon

Like Burning Crusade before it, World of Warcraft: Classic's latest expansion, Wrath of the Lich King, comes with new dungeons, each with two difficulties, Normal and Heroic.

At first, players can traverse through the dungeons on Normal difficulty, whereupon mobs, trash, and the dungeon as a whole are not as difficult to take on, even being able to enter some of them at non-max levels. However, Heroic Dungeons, on the other hand, are a bit different as not only are they max-level exclusives but are also harder overall. Higher health pools, more damage, and new abilities all make dungeons more difficult to complete.

Because of this, Blizzard locks Heroic Dungeons behind some requirements in order to enter them. Here's what they are

REQUIREMENTS TO ENTER: Heroic Dungeons in WoW Classic WotLK have minor requirements

First, you have to make sure you're max level, in this case, level 80. Once you reach max level you unlock all of the Heroic difficulty for all of the dungeons. From then on, you'll want to grind gear in order to not just be able to complete the dungeons in a timely and efficient manner but also to meet the item level and gearscore requirements.

Item level is the universal metric that the game uses to dictate whether you have the appropriate amount of gear or not for any given dungeon or raid. It takes the average level of all of your equipped items and gives you a number. Gearscore, on the other hand, is similar to item level but instead of it being an in-game feature, it's a player-made system that puts number values to each piece of gear and adds them up.

When it comes to entering Heroic Dungeons in WoW Classic WotLK, you'll want an item level of about 180 and a gearscore of about 3,500.
