With the cap at 200 and most pieces costing between120 - 150 comms, just how are you 'just run dailies' people going to gear up yourself AND your companion, especially by Sunday?

At best, you will get one new piece of gear for yourself OR your companion without farming FPs - which with the cap might be difficult, especially if you are dps, as players like myself with multiple tanks won't bother to run FPs if we will lose comms due to this arbitrary cap.

This is why the cap is stupid and the change they have stated (dropping the cap) should be implemented as soon as possible.

It makes no sense to cap comms useful only for leveling / companion gear.

And while it is nice to see they are 'correcting' this, all of this same feedback was provided on the PTS, so the cap should never have made it live.

So what happens to the comms that were lost in the conversion? If the cap is being removed should I not receive my full conversion value? (Not to mention all the people who spent their comms before 2.0 because of the cap.)

They're removing the weekly cap not the storage cap.

Incidentally, there is currently a bug that causes the game to warn you that you've exceeded your weekly cap even when you are at 0 in your weekly progress (it's erroneously looking at your total commendations). Make sure you check the actual weekly progress value displayed in your currency tab.


Ahhh, thank you very, very much. Hopefully the cap on the Basics and other elder game comms will be removed as well or it will be pointless, as all the people here on my thread will be level 50+ and mostly 55 and will be collecting up basic's, ultimate's and elite's. However that is good news, even if you play many alts. I reached the cap in one day on my sentinel, if i had alts I'd have reached the weekly limit on those as well. I do help manage a guild and many of the people that help me run it have not run into the cap, because they are helping other guildies. In this manner I guess the cap is effective- most people don't run around helping guildies though.

Only the weekly ? sigh!
But still a move in the right direction.

There is a vendor in the Gav Daragon (or the equivalent for the Empire).

U only remove the cap from classic comms ? quite useless, no one will care for these comms in 2 weeks. basic, elite and ultimate comms need to be uncapped too....
pls stop coyping world of warcraft, slowing players down and force them to play alts. weekly caps are the worse u can do....
