So much DOOM!
I'm ok with this. My personal opinion: Sagas were an added EXTRA for doing what we do anyway: Quests. Bonus exp, guild renown, or tome on top of the rewards we already get for doing the quests needed for the sagas. It certainly isn't as though we do not have enough heroic content to keep us busy and get us enough exp.
TY for the nice extra saga in 3bc Turbine. I'll grump at you later when you mess up something serious (speaking of which, any new word on when the in-game bug reporting tool will be repaired?)
That said Cordovan, an announcement to the effect prior to changing the repeatability of heroic sagas would have been appropriate and appreciated; wouldn't have stopped all of the doom, but it would still have been appropriate.
