How does War Hero vendor work?

I know you need a Valor rank of 70, but it says you need Battlemaster Gear too. Can you trade the gear? Or do you need BOTH the BM Gear AND $XXXX Ranked Warzone commendations?

If so how do you get Ranked Warzone Commendations? I know Dailies/Weeklies give you small amounts but can you buy them?

It depends on the War Hero piece but for most you need the BM equivalent piece + the Ranked Warzone commendations. So for a War Hero Vindicator chest piece you would need the 3200 ranked Comms + the BM Vindicator chest piece. You are trading the old piece for the new so you can not keep the BM piece. You can however pull out the mods before trading it in if you want.

To get ranked comms you have to queue with a group of 4 for ranked warzones or you can trade in warzone comms for ranked comms through the PVP vendor at a 3:1 ratio.

So can I craft a piece of BM gear to exchange? Or does it have to be Purple?


Thanks for the Ranked Comm info too.

It has to be the purple, which you buy from the Battlemaster PVP vendor, it cannot be the orange crafted ones.
