The token(s) are then exchanged at the Tionese/Columi/Rakasa vendors on the Imperial Fleet (inner side of Supplies Quarter, if I recall correctly... although I frequently get lost, but I am sure someone will correct me if I am inaccurate). Many items can be exchanged either for 1 specific token _or_ lots of Commendations (and/or Crystals), but some will only drop as a token from the FP/OPS bosses.
Thanks. I must say, once you start gearing up the game just becomes so much more fun. I've landed some gear for my mara and it's really helping. I don't like the PVE chest piece but right now I look ****** with a champ/columi gear mix. Only reason I'm using some pvp gear atm is because my orange modded gear has become useless/obsolete.
I think the columi helmet is the most awesome looking piece so far for my mara.
Again, great reference here, thanks for posting this. +1
