Honor pieces are seriously better than non-heroic (450) stuff from jp vendors, and only slightly worse than heroic (463) gear, depending on class/spec. For realz. It's strange, but true fact. They're itemized differently now.
They have made an effort to blur the lines between PvP and PvE gear to allow for some crossover. Right now the lines are really blurred in the favor of PvP gear. The nerf bat has been summoned and will strike shortly from my understanding.
Inspect my player, note all of the currently epic gear acquired from Honor.
Convert your JP to honor and buy that set of gear.
Did you know that they nerfed honor gear again like a day or 2 ago? They made it blue quality and ilvl is 450 vs what it used to be 464.
My advice to you, run regular lvl 88 dungeons get 450 gear then go do a world boss "Sha" in Kulnai - summit. Even if you don't win a piece of gear, make sure you LOOT the corpse of Sha because it drops 100% (for everybody) a quest item when you turn it it, it will award you with epic feral boots. Call them wealfare epics of whatever...still better than anything out there.
Start working on your reputations. Golden Lotus is the most important one because it unlocks another rep once you become revered with them (I know as crazy as it sounds) it's not easy to obtain vp gear where you can just face roll endless heroics and gear up in epics as it was in Cata.
Golden lotus rep is required (honored or better) to get some basic epic items such as valor points rings etc.

They are now 458. It's still a very variable alternative.
On top of getting the Golden Lotus, do the Klaxxi stuff too. Golden Lotus opens Shado-Pan and the Klaxxi have some awesome Guardian stuff.
