SWTOR Bioware Explains Commendation changes in 3.0

SWTOR Commendations system will be getting some changes in 3.0 with the removal of planetary and classic commendations.

Commendations in 3.0 | 10.27.2014, 05:15 PM

I wanted to explain exactly how the Commendation stuff will work in 3.0 as I know I still had some questions I was unsure of on the stream. Here is the basic layout of what will happen in 3.0.

  • Planetary and Classic Commendations no longer exist. All current Planetary and Classic Commendations will become Basic.
  • All Elite and Ultimate Commendations that you have will become Basic Commendations. Elite and Ultimate Commendations still exist but you will need to earn them anew in 3.0.

I know there are a few followup questions; what will the cap be, is there a conversion rate, etc. We are still working out details like that in testing but as soon as we have it nailed down I will let you know!

    So, basically all commendations players have when 3.0 launches will be converted into Basic Commendations.
    Did I understand that correctly?

    What about com limits? If all elite and ultimate coms are converted to basic, is the current limit on basic coms going to be removed?

    So how will commendations work whilst levelling? Do we have to spend basic commendations at the equipment commendations vendors?

    Does that mean that mobs on all planets will be dropping basics, and they will be as rewards on quests an all planets as well?

    in other words: spend your elite and ulti comms today as they will not be available past 3.0 for new / better stuff anyways…

      I wouldn’t do that myself.. Considering the recommended gear for lvl 60 SM ops will be 186 (according to swtor_miner) basic comms will probably be used to buy 186 gear.

            But your elite comms will be converted to basic at 3.0. You start from scratch on elite and ultimate comms. That’s the point of the article above.

              @Seph: The point people are trying to make is this:

              Right now, basic buys 162; elite buys 168; ult buys 180.
              In a month, all elite and ult are converted to basic. However, the gear that you can buy with comms also changes. The currently presumed gear levels for post patch are: basic buys 186; elite buys 190; ult buys 196.

              That being said: basic in 1 month is better than ult right now. Conversion ratios pending, lets say you spend 140 ult comms on a 180 rating chest right now. In one month, 140 basic comms will get you a 186 rating chest. Accordingly, it is best for the long term to not buy anything right now, as the same amount of comms will get you better gear in only a month.

              That being said; the entire argument on either side is dependent on a lot of unknowns, such as what the actual new tier ratings will be, the conversion ratios, and if the costs per piece stay the same, etc.

                I doubt basic will buy 186. Last level cap raise the classic comms bought 146 gear, not even the top level 150, and you had to earn 156 gear which was entry level. I’d expect similar this time.

              What i meant by elite comms buying gear better than 168s was that the elite comms, which will become basic comms, will probably buy at least 180 gear.

        You can’t in a month (after 3.0), that’s the whole point. Any elite comms you have will be converted to basic comms, and not usable on the level 60 gear. You’ll have to re-earn end game comms after 3.0, as it should be.

    I’m glad I’ve maxed out my planetary and classic commendations, at least…

    Not sure why they would get rid of our current Elite and Ultimate commendations if they’re still a viable currency. That seems like a dick move on their part, unless there’s going to be a way to convert them up or down (Basic to Elite, Ultimate to Elite, etc.) through some conversion ratio.

    Is this an update that’s coming in with Shadow of Revan?

      “Elite and Ultimate Commendations still exist but you will need to earn them anew in 3.0.”

      They aren’t removing them, just making it to where people can’t stock pile ultimates on a bunch of toons so they can get a full set of top tier com vendor gear the first day.

      That’s the entire reason that I stockpile commendations. In case something new comes out that’s an improvement. Being prepared isn’t an exploit, it’s a great strategy. Making that impossible is a dick move. Should they get rid of all of our credits too, so we can’t buy new things on the exchange when they release?

        It’s not a great strategy. Because now people have top tier gear without having a single clue how to play their newly leveled toon. Earning gear has to be a process, not instant gratification.

        They did it to force people to actually learn how to play their role. It’s the smart decision.

          Ten levels will not make that much of a difference in play style, just like the five from Makeb didn’t either. Plus, obtaining improved gear has nothing to do with play style. In fact, it would make it easier for a newly leveled player to learn how to play well.

          It still is a process, just one that we have already done. I’ve got a good amount of commendations, probably enough to get one or two pieces of the new set. I earned those just as much as anyone else, so why can’t I keep them? It makes no sense to set certain players back by what could be months of commendation grinding in preparation for getting new top-tier sets!

            This will be applied to all players, not just you, and it is being done to make people play the game instead of complaining about how lame the expansion was because they got all their gear on the first day. Also, the weekly cap on ultimates is 150, and the max cap is 300. By that simple math you are being “set back” two weeks…. not months. If it takes you months to get a simple set of com vendor gear you honestly should look into how to get commendations faster rather than complaining about losing the few you have managed to save over the years…. I would recommend one of Dulfy’s amazing guides ;P

        yea like not making Rakata/columi/exotech gear & named weapons etc. drops from old raids ..and now mpossible to obtain – Dick Move yes they are capable of “sealing us off and releasing the airlock” so-to-speak so better to be prepared, i agree. Wow allows old armor to be obtained ..may have hairpulling drop rates and long drawn out old raids that mechanically may need more than 1 player but still obtainable and becomes a trophy in and of itself.

        In a game that’s frankly very “pay to win”, an equal chance doesn’t matter. People will still get the commendations one way or another, people will still get taken apart in PvP because some people got them extremely quickly, so having an equal chance at the beginning of this is like giving someone a head start on Usain Bolt. It won’t matter in the end, you’re only making it worse for the guy who already had them…

            Well, for one thing, artifact equipment requires you have to either subscribe, or buy one of the most expensive unlocks on the cartel market to use it. As a subscriber you have no credit cap; everything (including remodding) costs less; your max crew skills in use at 1 time is 5 as opposed to 3, and you can craft 5 items per comp as opposed to 1; you have 10 times the slots on the gtn; unlimited warzones, flashpoint loot, and operations; increased rewards in GSF and Warzones; and your EXP isn’t cut in half after level 20 (in fact, subs get a total of 4 times as much from kills compared to a non-sub due to rest EXP). Just to name a few.

              Yeah…how about no? That isn’t pay to win…not at all…not even remotely close.

              F2P not having the same perks as P2P isn’t P2W. P2W would be if you could only attain the best gear, off the cartel market. Or if you could buy things of the CM that bypassed a lot of things. Which, you cannot do. The only time something was close to that, was the space mission gear for ships.

              This game is not P2W, there are many Asian MMOs which are.

      Not likely, but it is all speculation. My money would be on basic comms buying 162’s, and/or the lowbie mods that planetary comms used to buy. Elite and ult will be for the new level 60 tiers.

        Oct 28, 2014 @ 09:20:00

        Basics already buy 162s. You’re saying you really expect them to turn people’s current Elite and Ultimate comms into the lowest of lvl55 gear available when they’re raising the cap to 60?

        The new Elite and Ulti comms being for the new lvl60 tiers sounds rather obvious, but the lvl60 tiers aren’t going to equal the lvl55 tiers, otherwise there’d be no point in upgrading at all. So if 186 is the highest now and gear gotten with Elites and Ultis will exceed that, and Basics would only get 162s, where did the rest go? That’s an awfully big gap.

        My initial guess was that 180 gear sounded logical, since at 2.0 the new classic comms gave gear just one step below the best of pre-2.0 and it would also mean that current Ulti comms won’t actually become less valuable. 174 or something in that region also sounds plausible, but 162.. that makes no sense to me.

      The original end game sets were tionese, columi and rakata. Rakata was the best from nightmare modes and it was 146.

      When classic coms were put in, the sets you can buy are equal stats and set bonus, they are 146 rakata equals, they just look different.

      I have the original tionese, columi and rakata to compare.

      It is likely that when they collapse the current end game sets they will once again make the “top tier” be the default that you get with the basic coms at level 55

      Its just all going to be level locked. The level 55 “planet com” now renamed “basic com” vendor will simply hand out 186 gear; the level 50 will hand out 146 gear, and the planet vendors will keep the crap they have

      And all the models for those removed sets in between will get recycled into cartel armors

        Again Rakata was only 140 rated gear, and dropped from hardmode EV, KP, and Story EC.

        1.2 gave us Campaign gear that was 146 and dropped from HM EC

        1.4 gave us Dread Guard gear rated at 150 and dropped from NiM EC and HM TfB.

        All prior to 2.0 which introduced blue 148 gear in lvl55 HM FP’s, 162 gear in lvl 55 ops TfB & SnV, and 168 gear from HM TfB and SnV.

        Which was again revamped and updated with the release of Oricon planetary, DF, & DP operations. the loot tables for all intro 2.0 content got changed throughout the 2.X releases.

    If it’s anything like the 2.0 overhaul, then basic comms gear will be better than the high-end pre-patch gear. So Basic comms will probably buy stuff that is better than 186 gear. Then Elite and Ultimates will be for level 60 stuff.

      I disagree. The 2.0 release took all the comms and made them “classic comms” to buy 146 gear, 150 was the high end at the time. You then had to go earn “basic comms” to get entry level 156 gear. Basic comms are now the new classic comms. I’d guess basic will be there just to get some 162 or 168 gear (maybe 180 I suppose) and you’ll have to earn your entry level gear like you did in 2.0.

        Rakata was 146 which was the highest tier. Classic coms buy 146 gear with the rakata set bonus on it.
        What was removed was the two end game tiers below that (tionese and columi were less than 146)

        I have a set of the original Rakata from the original nightmare mode ops and aside from the looks it is equal stats to classic.

          Wrong, Rakata was not the highest tier prior to 2.0!

          Before 2.0 we had 1.2 which released Campaign and Black Hole gear both of which were rated (146) higher than Rakata (140). Then with the release of 1.4 they introduced Dread Guard & Hazmat gear to operations loot tables rating (150).

      When 2.0 hits and all comms become classic all you could get was 146 gear, that one was already in game, and was the second best level 50 gear at the time, 150 been the best. If they do the same you should be able to get 168 or 180 for level 55 with basic comms and them start to get the new gear when you get to 60

      If you have more than the cap on you, it will not hurt you. you will not lose them.

      The cap only prevents you from “earning” more, it does not stop you from physically holding more than the cap if you already have them.

      The same thing happened when they converted the original planet com system. You used to need named planet coms that were unique to each planet and planet com vendor.

      When they changed over the system where all planet coms were made to one singular planet com type and could be spent on any planet com vendor there were people with 1000+ planet coms.

      Your only limitation is you will not be able to earn more coms until you spend the ones you have and drop below the new cap.

    Pretty standard stuff, it looks. I do like the implication that if you’re shrewd with planetary comms while levelling, you’ll be able to buy at least a few pieces of entry-level gear at level 60 immediately.

      They’ll keep that gear because there are people that haven’t purchased either expansion and are still 50. Most likely basic comms will buy both the level 50 and 55 gear.

        I imagine that only the Dread Forged will stay. Arkansan, Underworld, and Kell Dragon will be removed and become future Cartel Market sets.

    What if you complete a bunch of weeklies but don’t go to the terminal to get the reward only until after the expansion? What kind of commendations will you get then? 🙂

      I would take a guess that the weekly missions will be changed also, so that wouldn’t be of much use

      They often reset after an update sadly, otherwise good idea!

    Okay, did I understand this right – if I want, say, the funny Zorro mask (PVE gear) for my shadow and I start to farm those comms now, will I still be able to buy it (with the converted comms) after the patch hit?

    if classic comms will be converted 1:1, then i guess that farming section X is a great deal

    Hi there,

    since the Elite and Ultis will go I would guess, as many before me the Basics will grant 180 level.

    That would also make sense with the conversion since currently Ultis grant 180 level.

    Doing an assumption I think that Ultimates to newBasic will convert 1:1, Elite maybe like 2:1, Basic maybe like 4:1 and Classic at a 8:1 ratio. That would give a whole lot of Basics but allowing to get the 180 equipt for current 55 levels to get into the new planets.

    Just my two coppers

      Wrong. Basic gear will grant 186 rating.

    “All Elite and Ultimate Commendations that you have will become Basic Commendations. Elite and Ultimate Commendations still exist but you will need to earn them anew in 3.0.”
    You had wanna not be able to buy 180 gear with basic comms!

    Anyone else notice that this is starting to copy WoW more these days. They did an item / level / gear squish and now swtor is doing it. I play swtor cause i like it being different from wow

      Sometimes things just make sense. They did the same with the planetary commendations before. And well I get tired of all the different types of commendations, especially classic ones that are completely pointless. I don’t see this as copying wow but just a logical step.

        For once I actually agree with EAware on something. They did a great job by consolidating the planet comms. And as you say, classic comms are nigh worthless so get rid of them as well.

        I don’t mind them merging my ultimates and elites because after a short while, elites become worthless and as long as I can buy 180 gear or better with the comms I already earned then no harm, no foul. I don’t mind earning new comms for new gear.

      The alternative is having 40 different kinds of tokens like those asian MMORPG’s have, with 200 defunct vendors offering broken gear with subpar stats. It’ll become so confusing that you’ll end up earning the wrong tokens before you know it. A reset is good.

      It’s not copying WoW, it’s following a working concept. Now we’ll know basic commendations get you leveling and non-competitive stuff.

    So, if Planetary and Classic comms are being removed in 3.0, does that mean that the vendors who took those comms as currency along with all their merchandise will be removed as well?

      The planetary vendors won’t disappear they will just take basic comms. You will get basic comms in place of planetary comms from missions. The classic comms seemed point less because buy time you got enough to buy anything you were moving on to the basic suff anyway.

        True, but a lot of the armor and weapon shells from the Classic Comms vendor are cool and I don’t want to lose access to them with 3.0. Besides, level 50 toons are still a thing!

    When 2.0 released you could buy 140 gear at level 50 and then 156 gear at level 55. 140 was good gear for leveling a fresh 50 to 55 and 156 was needed for the story mode ops.

    The devs have come out and said that 198 gear will be the reward for HM ops, 192 gear will be the reward for sm ops, and 186 gear will be the “basic comms” gear required for sm ops that you can buy when you’re level 60. I’m guessing you’ll be able to buy 168/174/or 180 gear with basic comms at level 55 for leveling to 60… but that is just a guess.

    This is all logical, Classic comms were basically useless anyway, they had to do something like this… except for ending planetary comms. I mean, won’t it be the death of dailies as we speak? In case I’m wrong please do correct me, but I think we’re gonna see A LOT of high lv players heading to low level planets to get comms, who needs to endure stuff like Makeb when you can just hop down to Tatooine and get lots of comms lol?

      not necessarily…basics after 3.0 may buy better gear than elites or ultimates do now. if that’s the case, hang on to them and get the conversion.

        They will. Ultimates can only get 180s and I think basics will be getting 186s in the expansion.
