What I tried to describe here was maybe a bit misleading indeed. I just wanted to tell they didn't use this method (to set the same ID for different NPC versions) that frequently prior to BfA. In the Beta it comes for most quest giver NPCs in any given area/hub (which is a big difference). That difference led me to a question for how could the NPC versions be distinguished technically if not by their IDs from now on?
Actually I have data that shows at least 2000 different times prior to BfA where this is done, for NPCs involved in quest giving or turning in.
