What can I buy with daily commendations?

So far all I've seen are purple hilts/barrels, mods (or armor, can't remember atm), and some pve items. Oh and the speeders. But is there anything else you can buy with these, and if so, where are the vendors?

So, other than armor, weapons, enhancements, mods, and speeders, you want to know what else there is to buy?

What else do you need to buy?

Um, have you actually looked at the selection? It's very limited. That's why I'm asking. Maybe you're thinking of the commendations from doing quests on specific planets, but I'm talking about the ones form doing the quests/dailies on Ilum and Belsaris at 50. As far as I can tell, all you can get are earpieces, implants, armoring, barrels/hilts, and 2 speeders. No weapons, no proper armor, no mods, no enhancements.

LMAO was literally wondering the same thing 2 minutes ago (just logged out in Ilum). The choice is very poor imo. Then again, it was my first time there and there may be another vendor I don't know about?

I checked Balsavis quickly and found the same stuff. And couldn't find the answer on Torhead either. Not really worth grinding out 120 tokens for the implant or ears, but at least the armoring might come in handy at some point.

I hope you are joking right.

Those daily quests are extremely rewarding.

Purple Barrel and Hilt better than anything crafted, same for armoring, excellent implant and ears, also better than anything crafted.

Not to mention that those daily mission gives a ******** of money, you can make around 200k a day doing them.

Also the 2+ on Belsavis gives a purple mod and the 2+ on Ilum gives a purple enhancement.

Basically you can full slot all your orange items in purple mods better than anything crafted with minimal effort.

It is just the perfect and really easy way to gear yourself for Hard Flashpoint and Operations.

I've tried to find the answer to this elsewhere, but as I haven't yet I thought this would be a good place to try.

Seeing the implants and earpieces mentioned as rewards for the daily commendations, are there separate vendors for these or have I just been blind so far in seeing them in the vendor list along with the hilt/armor/barrel/speeder rewards? Or are they rewards for some of the heroics?

Any help would be appreciated.

In short, the answer is no. But that does not make these missions pointless.

The best things to buy with these Daily Commendations are the Implants and the Earpieces. They each cost 120 Daily Commendations but as far as i know, they are the very best PvE pieces of gear for those slots (Rakata). Do not buy anything else from the vendors as you're just wasting the Commendations. The item mods are given as rewards for the heroics anyway and the speeders are pointless.

For Republic there are a possible 25 Commendations available per day (8 on Ilum, 17 on Belsavis), so in just 5 days, you have a top tier PvE gear sorted. 2 weeks and you're done with the Dailies except for cash farming, and you'll have 3 Rakata gear.

You will get 50 Epic Armourings, Mods and Enhancements, and a choice of Companion weapon from doing the Heroics on Belsavis and Ilum. All the Heroics on Belsavis can be solo'd in about 90 seconds average if you have stealth; not sure of the difficulty of them if you don't have stealth. You will need 2 for the Heroic on Ilum which gives the Enhancement.

I am a Shadow Tank. I do all the Daily missions everyday in about 30 minutes and i've got 2 Rakata already and i have more epic mods than i know what to do with, tonnes of credits too. Definitely worthwhile. Everybody should be doing these everyday.
