You might as well call them Outlaw's Den Chest commendations, because that's the only way to get them in the game, and even that is a long shot.

Just get rid of them, increase the cap on Warzone commendations and adjust prices accordingly.

Or increase the ways to get Mercenary comms. Reward kills in World PvP. Increase the Chest drop rate (it is ridiculously slow right now, which is why nobody ever goes to Outlaw's Den.) There are a thousand more ways. Make it a fun commendation to get, not a conversion sink.

The whole system really makes no sense.

He referred to them as a "conversion sink" so I think he knows that.

Oh, so there is a way to get Merc Coms? I thought it was unimplemented and only avaliable by conversion.

The chests that spawn bi-annually in Outlaw's Den drop 20 Merc commendations. But it's pointless due to the fact that:

A - You'll be very lucky if you find one every 15 minutes.
B - You don't earn any Valor from this place, whereas you could be doing Warzones.
C - No other incentive to be in Outlaw's Den, especially since PvP is non-existant.

So why Mercenary commendations exist is beyond me.

You have terrible reading comprehension.

Merc commendations need to be granted on PVP kills on Ilum.

That's a great idea.
