Get a new 489 necklace and ring for free! Well, maybe not for free 100% but with a little invested time, you could get a level 489 ring and necklace if you grind your way to exalted with the Klaxxi and/or the Golden Lotus.
Many people don’t know this, but once you hit exalted with the Klaxxi and/or the Golden Lotus, you get an epic (almost legendary feeling) quest line for each faction. This is a very cool addition to the Mists of Pandaria that makes all those rigorous dailies seem worth it. Item level 489 is great starting gear for raiding and it will take you months to get a drop from your regular 10 man and 25 man.
Take the Klaxxi quest line at exalted: The Empress’ Gambit
Starts at: Malik the Unscathed, he’s just to the east of the big tree by the Heart of Fear in the Dread Wastes
Take the Golden Lotus quest line at exalted: The Might of Three
Starts at: Sun Tenderheart, at the Golden Pagoda in the Veil of Eternal Blossomes
Get one of these rings when you hit exalted with the Klaxxi. They are level 489.
Get one of these necklaces when you reach exalted with the Golden Lotus, they are level 489

I know that grinding to revered is tough enough and that these rewards aren’t hugely helpful. However, if you want to have the BIS gear right now, its a small price to pay to have the best gear available in the game.
