Fastest way to get a decent ilvl on your alt

General Discussion
Don't concern yourself with more then 5 dailies.

Your new 90 alt, provided you bought the commendations, will already be revered with the Klaxxi if you quest through Dread Wastes and honored with Shado pan if you quest through Townlong. (Unlocked right there 5 pieces of vp gear.) Then start Shieldwall/Dominance dailies to revered (maybe 2 weeks at the most opening 4 more pieces). Now you only have to earn the vp to buy them.

You also can buy 2 ilvl 496 pieces from the AH. They are right now rather expensive but might be worth it. And before you know it you can queue for LFR and start 5.2.
Amg that takes too long /rabble.
    Kill Sha and loot the quest item for ilvl 476 boots.
    If you have it, use your profession to craft 2 ilvl 476 items for your class.
Somebody could do the math to see how many items are actually needed to get to ilvl 480. I just wanted to point out that by the time you get to 90 on an alt (provided the main bought the commendations) you already can have 2 factions unlocked and don't need any more dailies unless you want the ilvl496. Of course vp accumulation takes time.
I ran up the ilevel pretty quickly just chaining scenarios on one alt.

496 pieces, on average, go for around 10k or more. Unless you are McMoneybags, you aren't going to want to spend upwards of over 20k for two pieces of gear.
Engineers can make a epic head piece for themselves, very handy.
So your advice for how to get better gear is to get valor points and buy valor gear after hitting the required reps....

Sure glad I stopped by this thread.
I see alot of players being concerned about getting their alts raidready and complaining about how dailies are required to do so. Of course there are other ways but they are RNG dependant.

BTW why don't you add your fastest way?
I was at 433 when I hit 90, without touching Dread Wastes or finishing Townlong. I immediately got a Sha group, which got me new shoes & I also got lucky enough to score ilevel 496 gloves. Those two pieces alone put me at 443. A few relatively inexpensive purchases from the AH put me at 446, & this morning a run through Gates got me a 463 necklace, raising me to 447.

My 429 staff & a 429 trinket are holding me back.
I can't get my rep for the Klaxxi up to revered to get the commendation in the first place. Suddenly they just stopped giving quests. Apparently I'm waiting on some Pandaren to make a brew out of kodo teeth. Seems to be taking a while.
You might want to do dreadwastes. Since you can fly questing there is not to bad. That 489 necklaces at honored might get you over. Just need 1250 vp.

You need to do the 2 extra questhubs to free 2 more paragons before they give you new quests. And first time you need a few dailies to get over. I said for alts with the commendation.

You have access to their necklace though if you have the vp.

Yea I know, I really should do DW, but ..... for the near future I'm planning to focus more on group content, because I've been soloing since 85th level & I'm just tired of it. I'll get back to DW eventually, once I get bored with dungeons & scenarios :)

Do the arena scenario.
There is a quest inside there that rewards a iLevel 450 weapon.

Could just que for Arena of Annihilation. Get quest first from Temple of the White Tiger. Auto 450 ilvl weapon for about 8min work. Or blacksmith make a 463 with an offhand 476 one from the scripters.

Also don't forget about the honor gear 458, It is basicly the same as JP ones with a bonus pvp power-res. just gem it to damage instead of pvp. The stats are so close for now.
Fastest way is do dailies. The new loot system has much lower drop rate and the RNG is bad.
I bought my alts the 458 PvP crafted gear and DMF trinket, got the 476 Sha boots, and if I have spare mats on my crafters I can make most 476 weapons/armor upgrades. It's really not that difficult, and running heroics with a healer/tank friend fills in the gaps easily enough to get into LFR.
