Average item level (sometimes called by acronym, AIL) is a numerical value introduced with World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King Wrath of the Lich King and added to the Stats panel of the character window with the release of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm Cataclysm. It represents the average of the item levels of the highest equippable items for all equipment slots. It also includes items in the character's backpack, bags, or bank.[1]

Minimum AIL

World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King Wrath of the Lich King also introduced minimum average item level requirements for dungeons, primarily heroic mode dungeons. This restriction is primarily enforced in the Dungeon Finder tool. Later this was extended to the Raid Finder as well.
