So I need some help guys. I have quite a bit of a ton of different comms (planetary, warzone, black hole, columi, ect.) and I wanted to know what comms should I save until after 2.0 and which ones should I spend now? I understand say spending comms on columi will be a waste since they will become obsolete. Is there a guide for this stuff anywhere? I want to be as prepped as I can be for once 2.0 hits. Thanks!

Only keep black hole imo. Here's a link to a comm converter and more info to help you.

I've noticed a lot of questions about the upcoming changes to Commendations. To help you make your spending decisions before Game Update 2.0, here are a few of the patch notes:

  • Commendations from individual planets have been converted into a single "Planetary Commendation" type. Vendors that previously traded items for specific planet commendations now trade the same items for Planetary Commendations.
  • Tionese Crystals have been converted to the new "Planetary Commendation" type and no longer drop from any content.
  • Daily, Tionese, Columi, and Black Hole Commendations have all been converted to Classic Commendations. Missions and loot that previously awarded these commendations will now award Classic Commendations instead.
  • Daily, Tionese, Columi, and Black Hole Commendations in your inventory will be converted to Classic Commendations at the following ratios:
    • Tionese Commendations - 6:1
    • Columi Commendations - 4:1
    • Daily Commendations - 4:1
    • Black Hole Commendations - 1:1

Please keep in mind that these aren't all of the notes with regards to Commendations, but I hope the info above helps anyone who is confused and trying to make sense of what's going to happen.

Yeah, AmberGreen's post does not have the limits / caps, the converter linked above has the ones we know of from the PTS.

As others have mentioned, I am concerned about the caps on the number of comms. I do not want to lose any and would rather spend some than get them cut. Is there any way we can get some confirmation as to what the caps might be? Or will all transfer no matter what?

Thanks

The last numbers I could find were a total cap of 100 planetary commendation and 800 PvE commendations. Those numbers already include a "special" changeover cap (the normal, displayed caps will be lower, e.g., 50 planetary commendations). All commendations beyond those limits will be lost.

It would be nice to see some up to date numbers, so that people can maybe spend excess currency, if only to convert them to a few credits.

It would be really nice if we got official complete guide to changes from 2.0 that affect all old stuff disappearing/chaning. Like PvE quests going away, old pvp comms(centrurion etc) disappearing into thin air, and so on.

Also you can keep 100 planetary comms when 2.0 releases but you will then be limited ( after you spend the excess ) to 50 total. No weekly cap either.

Cheers,

Another question about commendations:

- It is worthy to keep them (any type) and wait them to be converted into new type, or buy items with them ?
