Karazhan Requirements

Here is some information on miniumum recommended specs for Kara entrance:

Since patch 2.4 no attunement is required for Karazhan entrance, with the acception of one party member must have the Master's Key.
While this comes with great benefit, it is nice to know your level of experience and gearing will allow you the ability to compete on dps charts or the means to keep your party alive (as a healer) and these attunement quests, which are still available for completion, will provide you with the indication either way.

To mention the obvious: this is also a great way to abtain gear, run the instances in this quest chain.

1. Obtaining Master's Key

This is the guide to the questline to get this key (your attunement to Karazhan)
