You may have noticed that there are a few dailies in this x-pac. I dinged 90 and dove in - and have been faithfully grinding out 2-3 hours of quests a day to max my reputation gain in each of 4 factions.
I saw a video on Tankspot yesterday that pointed out how this is not at all necessary.
Taking advantage of rep gear requires that you have the requisite status with the faction and enough valor badges to buy it when you get that status. Because we are limited to 1000vp per week - you really don't benefit from rushing to revered with these factions all at the same time.
There are 2 available factions that provide gear, Klaxxi and Golden Lotus.
Neck 1250vp Honored
Legs 2250vp Revered
Waist 1750vp Revered
They also have BS patterns for slightly lower ilvl plate chest and hands at honored.
Golden Lotus gear:
Rings 1250vp at Honored
Shoulders 1750vp at Revered
Chest 2250vp at Revered
They have the LW and Tailoring patterns for the chests and hands at honored
It takes a few days to get to Honored - less on Klaxxi if you did the entire zone leveling.
About 2 weeks of dailies to get to Revered. BUT it takes a little more than 5 weeks to get the VP necessary to buy the gear from EACH factions quartermaster.
So, if you do the dailies from ONE faction each day (30 minutes maybe) - or at least the majority of days. You will open the items for purchase about the time you have the VP to take advantage of them.
This assumes that you will be having fun running dungeons, scenarios, LFR (starting this week), raiding, challenge modes etc - so you cap your vp each week.
Also, you want to do enough dailies so that you get 90 lesser charms so you can turn them in each week and get your 3 greater lucky charm things for when we start killing bosses. You can get 3 a week and have a max of 10 accumulated at any one time.
You will also want to do some stuff with the Tillers so you can feed yourself the highest stat food available - but that isnt that bad of a grind. Also, I think Chubbchubb has stacks of feasts that give slightly lower stats, but still good.
The other factions give cosmetic benefits and are up to you and what you find fun. I'm doing the dailies to get that cool serpent mount - but I'm afraid i may be seasick watching my toons ride him.
Also, some ppl will want to grind on to exalted for other cosmetic bonuses like mounts and stuff - but that isn't going to impact raid readiness.
