Let's clarify a few things here:1 - 'Only to see the gear became useless just days later'This is hardly correct. The jump in stats between the ilevel 365 and ilevel 371 items is minimal. Yes; it is technically better, but not to the point of making the 365 stuff completely redundant.2 - 'I think this is a pretty good compensation package for players'Fair enough, you're entitled to your opinion like everyone else, but for me personally - and I know a lot of guildies like me - 4000 honour is a drop in the ocean compared to what we actually grind out that weekend. I personally went from hitting 85 on the Tuesday to having full 5/5 holy paladin set, neck, back, bracers, belt, boots and 1 of the rings - not to mention the weapon and shield - by the following Monday. That is a total of roughly 21, 630 honour points in 6 days. 4000 'compensation' isn't 'pretty good'. Don't misunderstand; I'm grateful they've acknowledged the error and I'm grateful they're offering anything as compensation because, let's face it - they don't have to.3 - I spent an absolute fortune on best in slot gems and enchants for that gear once I had acquired it, which is my other bug bear of this situation. Given the minimal jump in stats I mentioned earlier, it doesn't sting *too* much, but it's still a PITA!Fair play to Blizz for doing something, boo for not doing (imho) enough.IroncrustHoly PaladinRavenholdt EU

You only could have carried 4k over anyway, more if you capped JP as well.TBH, i wouldn't have been terribly upset if they had done nothing (more than apologizing for the issue anyway) at the very least, it affected everyone equally, both you, and your opponentspersonally, i'm more annoyed by the honor that was lost since they cut off the cap early than the gear change.
