We were chatting in guild about this last, and as I'm working (lol) I'll explain about Pvp gear and commendations. For taking part in warzones you get warzone commendations. These cap at 1000 and fairly easy to get, like 70 per game. The better you do on the game (not dps or max healing) the more commendations money and exp you get. To judge how well you do in pvp zones they award you a 'medal' which not a physical medal but for e.g killing someone 1v1, guarding more than 2k damage, doing more than 75k damage. If you 6 or more of these medals you've done well and will get more commendations. Once you have your warzone commendations you can buy mercenary commendations from the pvp vendor at 30 war coms for 10 merc coms value. There are some gear which you can use for both of these types but it's not the best pvp type gear. When you save up 200 of each you can buy a centurion pvp box from pvp Item vendor which goes towards centurion gear which is good shit. Each box you buy for 200 200 contains 2-6 centurion coms. You rinse and repeat this cycle for armour weaps etc. Apparently this is the same process for battle master gear using centurion coms but I'm yet to see this in game. Also, the centurian boxes are unique an cannot be opened till 50 so those like me farming now can't stock pile. However you can have 1 box and 1000 merc 1000 warzone coms which is around 70 warzones + which does give you a headstart. TLDR: for pvp gear Farm 200 war coms Buy 200 merc coms Buy centurion boxes Rinse and repeat till you have enough for centurion gear.
