Just a quick tip if the same thing should happen to others like it did to me.
After raceleveling toon to 80, abandoning all quest to clear bags etc then leaving them in a city either for professions or just to see how quick I could level, I found myself coming back to some of them later on and wanting to gear them.
This happened with one of my druids. I started gearing him and wanted to complete the Sons of Hodir questline. After hours of trying to figure out what quest I left at, I still couldn't find any NPC with a quest. Started killing random mobs behind Dun Niffelem(big elite stone guys and the elements) and saw http://www.wow-mania.com/armory/?item=41556 drop. Now I already had that in my bank from when I leveled and didn't think of it as any use. Ended up going back to dalaran and picking it up, starting the quest and ended up getting 22000rep with Sons of Hodir and continuing the questchain.
Just a tip if it should happen with anyone else.
