A few other things re: gearing up - 1) If you're going to spend all that time in dungeons, you may as well get some reputation for it. Fox wrote a great column on pre-Heroic gearing, so I'll spare you the details; the point is that each faction offers a useful level 359 item at Exalted; use these to fill the gaps in your Justice and Valor gear. 2) Patch 4.2 added two reasonably short questlines that unlock level 365 items. The "Call of the Earth-Shaman" chain takes about an hour, is reasonably easy for a new 85, and rewards you with the Mantle of Desire, a 365 cloak. The "Firelands Invasion" chain leads you to the Molten Front daily quest hub, and you'll have an opportunity to buy a 365 necklace, the Nightweaver's Amulet. You can get both quests from the Hero's Call / Warchief's Command board once you're 85 and have completed about half of Hyjal.3a) Random and holiday battlegrounds provide another avenue for gearing up.Honor and Conquest points are reasonably easy to earn, and can be exchanged for Justice at a 33% penalty. 375 Honor buys 250 Justice, or 375 Justice buy 250 Honor. 3b) If you plan on PvP'ing, you'll need to buy or craft some PvP gear, and it's probably going to be a heck of a lot stronger than your leveling gear. If you're mostly outfitted for the next level of content, but one or two slots are lagging behind, use the PvP gear -- sparingly and temporarily -- to fill the gaps. Just don't abuse it; PvP gear doesn't need nearly as much hit as PvE gear, and resilience is worthless in dungeons, so running Heroics in full PvP gear is not a good way to make friends.
