Hey everyone, your old Champion/Battlemaster/Centurion are no longer being used in patch 1.2. They do not disappear, you just can’t use them to purchase armor anymore (they are no longer obtainable either). So the question is – what are they being used for now?
March 27: As of march 27 PTS patch, the exchange change between Warzone and Mercenary Commendations is now 10 Mercenary Commendations for 10 Warzone commendations. (Previously it was 30 Mercenary Commendations for 10 Warzone Commendations)
March 29: As of March 29 PTS march, Ranked Warzone Commendations can no longer be exchanged for normal Warzone Commendations (i.e. you can’t skip unranked warzones now in your PvP gear progresssion)
March 29: New expertise Crystals added to the PvP items vendor, price for Longspur Recon changed to 1500 Warzone Commendations
- Centurion PvP gear is no longer sold by vendors.
- Champion PvP gear is no longer sold. Instead, vendors now sell a set called Recruit which is blue quality with a rating of 126 (essentially Champion armor downgraded in stats but has more expertise). These pieces no longer have any moddable slots and can be purchased from vendors for credits. Your existing Champion pieces will remain the same (fully moddable, including the armoring)and not changed to Recruit.
- Warzone commendations now caps at 2000 and is used to purchased the Battlemaster gear, which no longer have a valor requirement. You can still purchase the Mercenary Commendations at a rate of 10 Mercenary Commendations per 10 Warzone Commendations but they no longer have any use in directly purchasing PvP armor.
- The new tier of PvP Armor – War Hero – is purchased via Ranked Warzone Commendations, which are obtained via playing warzones.
So the question you are probably wondering, what are your Champion/Centurion/Battlemaster commendations now used for?
There are now two PvP vendors near the PvP Terminal, the vendor for PvP items is the guy/gal you are looking for. He/she will exchange your old PvP commendations items. The exchange rate are as follows.
