I got a reply on a ticket:
My comments on this:
1. It is still not clear why there is no logical continuation, nor a total reset of the system, as e.g. it was with going from vanilla to Burning Crusade. Maybe I am stupid but I cannot see the logic here.
2. Referring to a wowhead post for info is a bit meagre. But better than nothing as I have searched wowhead repeated times to find that without success.
3. The choice to confirm I have read the ticket reply is either “Marked as resolved” or “I still have issues”. It’s not resolved, it is just a reply. I do have issues, but that of course is not resolvable. Because the system is what it is. I clicked “resolved” just to take away the reminder.
I realise I also have the title Bound by Honor. Another thing I will work on to achieve again! Pardon my sarcasm.
As I see it, it is not bad mathematics that made this situation, it is laziness on Blizzard’s part. This way they do not have to create new rewards. I think it is as simple as that. They could have given new mounts, or shirts, or some unusual appearance pieces or what not. Funny hats.
I think many things with BfA is great, but the meh things are piling up.
