The grind for PvE gear in SWTOR requires a lot of time and patience so we tried to create two detailed guides on how you can get Daily and Black Hole Commendations in the easiest manner possible.
The first guide covers all of the Daily missions available on Corellia, Ilum and Belsavis with pics, maps, tables and useful tips on how to complete them faster. We also tried to create daily routes, in other words, the missions are presented in a logical order that mean shorter travel routes and as a result, saved time.

Corellia The Black Hole (9 Daily Commendations)


1. [HEROIC 4] End of Torvix
2. [AREA] Asset Liquidation
3. [DAILY] Control the Battlefield
4. [DAILY] Hypermatter Directive
5. [DAILY] No Trace Left
6. [DAILY] Glow


1. [HEROIC 4] Chasing the Shadow
2. [AREA] Criminal Crackdown
3. [DAILY] Counter Eco-Terrorism
4. [DAILY] Forced Labor
5. [DAILY] Stolen Victory
6. [DAILY] Eyes and Ears

Ilum (8 Daily Commendations)


1. [HEROIC 2+] Poisonous Strategy
2. [DAILY] Defend the Shipment

8. [DAILY] Unheard Frequencies
9. [DAILY] Prison Repairs
10. [DAILY] Containing the Beast
11. [DAILY] Sleeping Rakata


Empire: [DAILY] Ascendant Pride
Republic: [DAILY] New Eclipse

By completing all of the dailies mentioned above you can get a total of 36 Daily Commendations/day ( be sure to check the Conclusions - section of our article for the tables that sum up the rewards from all of these missions.
The second guide presents all the missions and operations that yield Black Hole Commendations along with a cost study for Black Hole Gear. The two guides have a common area: completing the Daily missions in Corellia - The Black Hole. Those are a requirement for completing the [Weekly] Black Hole Crisis which gives you 6 BH Commendations as a reward, so you might want to pick up this weekly from the Horizon/Sentinel Outpost before heading out to do your dailies on Corellia if you also need BH Commendations.

Black Hole Commendations

There are 7 sources for Black Hole Commendations (that can be completed on a weekly basis):
1. [Weekly] Black Hole Crisis (6 BH Commendations)
2. [Weekly] Rakghoul Conflicts (8 BH Commendations)
3. [Weekly] Galactic Crisis Points (8 BH Commendations)
4. [Weekly] The Nightmare Pilgrim (4 BH Commendations)
5. Story Mode Explosive Conflicts (Denova) operation (20 BH Commendations)
6. Hard Mode Explosive Conflicts (Denova) operation (28 BH Commendations)
7. Nightmare Mode Karagga's Palace operation (12 BH Commendations)
You can find the full list of requirements and commendation rewards for each of the above mentioned sources here (

Black Hole Gear
1. As you may already know by now the name of the Black Hole Gear sets differs from their Columni/Rakata/Campaign equivalent, this issue being presented in the guide ( as a table that translates these differences.
2. Table with BH Commendations cost for each item.
To conclude, you will be able to get a maximum number of 86 Black Hole Commendations/week, while the full gear set costs 495 Commendations so you can get fully geared in about 6 weeks.
