    How long would it take for someone fresh to gear up?

    Because of several reasons I couldn't exactly dive right into MoP like I could with Wrath or Cata. I could do a dungeon or so a day, maybe knock in some dailies of one faction, and that would be it.

    Now that things have settled down for me, I can play more WoW. Unfortunately, I'm really far behind as well. I was wondering how long it would take for one to get to raid ready ilvl (480-485?).

    I would say it depend on quite a lot of factor, your ammount of valor currently, your rep, your profession, your luck on rolls, and your time commitment ... according to you getting extremely high luck, i guess you could achieve it in one week ... but that's with a shit ton of luck lol

    Getting 460 is pretty easy. 470 will require at least a few raid drops. 480 is pretty much wearing mostly epic gear. It depends a lot on if you can cap valor every week(for upgrades and valor gear), what your reps are like(for 2 free 489 pieces and access to valor gear), and your general RNG luck with drops in LFR/raids.

    Luck isn't a thing I have really. From all of my runs of LFR on my two toons I've gotten 1 thing. I've run LFR maybe 7-8 times total.

    Back in Cata 3 of my friends got geared to be raid-ready in less than 3 weeks because me and 3 other friends helped them chain run dungeons and DS LFR and need stuff for them. Alas, that was previous expansion.

    Now, in MoP, My brother and I did dailies together with them whenever they are online. One of my friend has bad luck on LFR loot but he does daily sets around 3 times a week. He's not ready for pugs but I don't think he's ready for guild alt runs either because his ilvl is ~470 and he has 0 exp in normals. This has been over 2 months too when he was a fresh 90.

    You'll be able to reach 470 by doing heroic dungeons & capping reputations (epic-quality rewards.)
    You'll be able to reach 480 by purchasing gear for Valor Points.
    You'll be able to reach 485-490 easily by purchasing gear for Valor Points & running LFR.
