Just hit 90. i439 or whatever bullshit, quest greens and blues. I would prefer to skip heroics.
1) Timeless Isle
2) Open random chests / kill rares.
3) Get i496 loot.
I use _NPCScan.Overlay to show me the relative positions of rare mobs on the map, there's probably a better one for timeless isle but it works great for looking for rares in general.
Don't you have a geared main that has a bunch of pieces from timeless isle that you could just mail to the alt? if not go to battle.net and restore all of the pieces you need for the alt that you sold on the main. That's the easiest way.
Then buy or craft some epics for the alt and you'll be ready
Each character can open each timeless chest once (aside from the five weekly chests). The items you get from the chests are fully account bound (cross server and faction), so your other characters can help you with gear pieces your alt might not have gotten from the chests.
You cannot get a weapon from the chests (you can buy a 489 weapon for 20k timeless coins, or do the Arena of Annihilation scenario that gives you the 450 blue weapon from the quest). You can only wear one trinket from the timeless isle chests, unless you're able to make one for two different specs...say, tank and dps.
If you're not at 496 by that point to enter SoO, you could try getting enough honor or JP to convert to honor to buy the last pieces you need for ilvl, the honor PvP gear is 522 ilvl.
I use this guide for timeless isle chest locations.
timeless isle + crafted stuff including helmet and boots
just to clarify, the tokens are BoA. Once you turn them into armor items the items soul-bound. Also, if you use a Burden of Eternity (which are soul-bound) the resulting armor is also soul bound.
Also, as you are running around TI, try to get a celestial kill. They have removed 'tagging' on celestial so it doesn't matter who started the fight, as long as you do damage to the celestial you can get loot. The only restriction is that you can get loot from any of the celestial once per week (i.e. you kill Yuan and have an opportunity to get loot, any other kills of _any_ of the celestials will not give a shot at loot).
The soulbound nature really only has implications if you're on a, for instance, paladin or DK and you plan to send overflow plate drops to a warrior (or any combination of main+alt plate). You want to just send the token. You can't convert two chest pieces, for instance, decide which one you want to wear on the main and send the other piece to the alt. Gotta send the un-activated token.
You vendored tokens. Go restore that shit!Yep! Got gold like usual :/

Can I hijack the thread slightly: What is the best way to gear once 510+ WITHOUT LFR? Is it only BOE's, flex and world bosses then?

I hope you didn't just vendor the Timeless Mail/Cloth/Leather/Plate items when they were only 5 gold a pop :P. I got a whole bunch on my alts and I send them to the respective armor wearer.
Have them turn the pieces into spec specific gear and then sell that piece.
Make the 5g vendor price go up to 11 gold to 35 gold depending on the piece.
My mage gets all the cloth so i can get sha crystals for nothing and then sell them for like 100g a pop :P
