Hey folks,

I wanted to give you a heads up on a change included with Game Update 4.7.3 on Tuesday. As we discussed last week, we are making changes to how gearing works in our upcoming expansion, Knights of the Eternal Throne. In support of our new Galactic Command system, we will be removing Warzone Commendations from the game on November 29th when Knights of the Eternal Throne Early Access opens. As a result, any new Warzone Commendation Grants will become bound and will Bind on Pickup starting on Tuesday, with Game Update 4.7.3.

If you have a desire to move Warzone Commendations around or have a stockpile of Warzone Commendation Grants, please ensure they are on the character you want them to be on before Tuesday’s maintenance. Please note, Customer Service will not be able to assist with any Warzone Commendation grants after Tuesday.

It is our intent that Warzone Commendations will convert to credits (as will Crystals) with Eternal Throne’s launch. We are still working out the conversion rates and I am hopeful that I will have that information for you later next week. To reiterate, in preparation for Knights of the Eternal Throne all Warzone Commendation Grants will become bind on pickup as of Game Update 4.7.3 on Tuesday.

Thanks everyone!

Would be awesome if we could get a ballpark on conversion rate before the patch goes through. Cause how high it is could affect how people want to shift commendations around and whether they want to use a lot now on certain characters, or save for the conversion.

I admit I may not be understanding the wording quite right, but I'm not sure I understand why they are being made BoP so soon, if they are being removed eventually anyway.

What about ranked season 6 comms? Weren't those supposed to be converted to Warzone Comms at the start of Season 8?

Are the crystal vendors, like those on the fleet that take commons for mods, going to remain and accept credits now?

This was already asked before, but what will happen to Ranked PvP tokens? Season 6 tokens will obviously be merged with Warzone Comms, but can players still use their Season 7 tokens to purchase the rewards with 5.0?

Season 6 Commendations will also convert to credits as they would have become WZ Comms, which are also becoming credits.

Correct, they are going to remain in place and accept credits.

You didn't exactly give us much notice to move these around now did you, what with the 100/500/1000 wz legacy containers taking 2 hours to unbind so you can transfer them to another toon or put them in your legacy bank!!

This needs WAY more than 24 hours notice.

How about the non-gear vendors?

Will grade 5 and 6 companion gifts become purchasable for credits? Will Alliance Crates? Will "rare" mats? (The Smuggled Good vendor on Odessen)?

Will the various mounts and decos still be available?

Will the TEC vendor even exist? What will they sell?

Will the "empty shell" PvP equipment still be purchasable?

Will the current Common/Radiant/Glowing vendors sell their gear? With or without mods?

I will be OK, today with "wait a bit." But these questions ought to be answered before 28 November.

Thank you! You sir (or madam), are a star. I had no idea the mail workaround was also valid for the wz comms crates. Still doens't excuse them giving so little notice, but at least I don't have to sit around waiitng for timers to come off.
