View Full Version : Comms on Sagas!

Here's a suggestion--add a sizeable chunk of commendations of valor as a saga end reward. That way the people who want to farm comms can forego the XP or similar to get a boost to their comms total.

Heh, that was their original idea. And there was a HUGE uproar on the forums about it because people don't want to do sagas. They want to cherry pick 2 or 3 high xp/comm quests and run those, then hop toons and do them again, every day.

There are people that run only EE impossible demands, and then EE rusted blades, and complain about how long it takes to get comms...

The only reason there was an uproar about it was because that was the ONLY way to get Comms originally. I don't think they should have removed the Comms from the Saga rewards, personally. That way, those who actually do the sagas could also have that option as a reward if they wanted to take it.

The accountant in me tells me - run EE HoRB and ED on 3 Characters, everyday! And also, run this list of quests as well. And also, go through and complete the saga, you MUST finish an almost done saga BEFORE repeating overlapping quests in a completed saga!!!

But thankfully - I do this on maybe one character a day, if I remember, and I do mostly what I want the rest of the time.

I really do understand the need for a grind to make us stay with the game for forever - but I also feel a larger variety of options would be good.

Playing in a different destiny than you want to, a lot. Doing quests because of the XP or the Comms, a lot.

I feel a COMM option in the Saga would be a positive change - understanding that this is an additional source - for turbines benefit it should not so many that people feel they must grind SAGA for comms -
but it should be enough comms that people are tempted to upgrade their reward for 15 shards. lol

I'm shocked this hasn't happened yet, but I'm hoping it's just a matter of time.

I could see a COMM option as a nice benefit, it would sure beat the 50 Guild renown that sits right below the 5-15K Guild renown option

Originally Turbine recieved a major backlash to the idea. Thus, they did not implement it.

However, the backlash was not caused by the fact comms were in sagas: They were caused by the fact it was the only source of comms.

Adding comms to sagas was originally the idea, but i'm sure Turbine is still a bit wary of them, as an angry backlash leaves deep marks.

Regardlessly, /signed.

(Epic hard saga... should I take the 41k exp on a level 28, or renown?)
