When you complete enough quests on Belsavis to start the Bonus Series quest line, it will unlock and send you to a set of small quest hubs where you can complete quests each day for these commendations.

They are primarily single player, but there is one [Heroic 2+] quest and two [Heroic 4] quests that award not only daily commendations, but a choice of one of several high quality items mods upon completion(each time you do it).

The daily commendations can be turned in at vendors in the starting hub for a selection of somewhat mediocre implants/earpieces (120 apiece), two mounts for 200 apiece, and power rank/rating 126 barrels/hilts/armoring (8 apiece). The implants aren't much but the mods are amazing and you can't craft anything that high at this current time.

The vendors of the items you get for these commendations, are on Illum.

NOTE: The below information is from a reddit post I found that may be useful to some. Original post found here.

Poisonous Strategy (Heroic 2+) - 3 tokens and artifact Enhancement 22
A Tightened Grip - 1 token
Defend the Shipment - 1 token (note: this is frequently bugged)
Rightful Owner - 1 token
Operation Shatterstorm - 1 token
Sabotage - 1 token

Belsavis (bonus series must be completed to unlock these)
Old Enemies (Heroic 4) - 3 tokens and artifact Armoring 22
Lights Out (Heroic 4) - 3 tokens and choice of level 49 orange companion weapons
Freeing the Fallen (Heroic 2+) - 3 tokens and artifact Mod 22
Deadly Mutations - 1 token
Ancient Transmissions - 1 token
Found in Translation - 1 token
Invisible Threat - 1 token
The Carriers of Xenovirus Prime - 1 token
Reluctant Volunteers - 1 token
Unintended Consequences - 1 token
Droid Malfunction - 1 token

I count 25 available tokens per day. A few notes on the heroics:
-Poisonous Strategy can be fairly difficult with two players if neither has CC. You must defeat two elite Jedi at once, they hit hard, and they love to use AOE which will kill your companions quickly.
-Old Enemies can be easily 2-manned with a healer, and would likely be soloable by a healer and a well-geared companion (mine isn't quite there yet). The trash on the way to the boss is harder than the boss himself; stealth helps a lot.
-Lights Out is very easy to solo if you don't mind dying a couple of times, or if you have an instant in-combat stealth escape button. The objectives are guarded but can be clicked while in combat.
-Freeing the Fallen is the easiest of all of them. The Jedi Master's damage is very low, and most classes can probably solo this with the appropriate companion.
-The artifact-level components granted by the heroic quests are BoE, and if you don't need them they do sell pretty well on the GTN. The credit rewards for the quests themselves are 7k-14k; the total for doing all dailies is around 150k/day.
-All dailies reset each day at 7:00AM EST.

As of the 31/1/2012 patch you also get 2 daily commendations for the space combat missions:
Operation New Eclipse
Operation Ascendant Pride

I'm not sure why you think the implants you get aren't amazing, they have VERY high stats on them. and you CAN craft the purple mods.

I had a nightmare finding dear Doctor Everis so for those who wan to do the [Heroic 2+] A Lesson is Learned:

Doctor Everis is located in the Melt water Outpost, south-west of the High Security Section in Belsavis.
Coordinates: 1308x325

By Akusala at 2012-11-02 14:50:06

thanks of all this very useful info.
Could anyone help me understand how to get Daily Commendations through Flashpoints? When I open Group Finder it shows me five normal mode flashpoints that reward Daily Comms but no where online does anyone mention Flashpoints in their guides.

If someone could share a link or make a list of normal mode Flashpoints (if any) that reward Daily Commendations? That was be fantastic!

By eefertank at 2012-01-29 15:46:53

I have found:
[Heroic 2+] A Lesson is Learned and
[Heroic 4] Open Communications
to be easy to solo as a Jedi Shadow. For "A Lesson is Learned" each piece of weaponry that you need to destroy is guarded by one elite and 2 strong NPCs or one champion. I sneak in, mind maze the elite, then kill the two hard NPCs. They are usually both dead by the time the elite recovers, then the elite is relatively easy to solo. Once they are dead you destroy the weapons cache and "talk to" the prisoners to release them. I can just mind maze the champions and then release their prisoners and destroy the weapons. I've only died once on this when a "hard" mob that pats around got into the middle of a fight. I usually take him out now after the first group.

"Open Communications just requires you to sneak into a dead droid and recover a "passkey" off it. Once you recover the key a mob of elites spawns, but I have no problem doing a "force cloak" and booking out of there. The hardest part of this is not aggroing the mobs when sneaking in, so I just mind maze one on the side of each group and sneak by with no problem.

This total does not include Flashpoints.

For Imperials you can spend these at Sergeant Fereden and Lieutenant Plodd at Domination Outpost on Belsavis.

btw it's -1308

also this quest is for the republic

By Vuetee at 2012-05-09 16:04:01
The black hole quests give you commendations too. I think the ratio is the same - 1 for solo dailies and 3 for the heroic daily.
By francis2559 at 2012-02-02 11:15:39
No one mentions how to spend them, I know you can spend them like so:
Captain Jaden
Sergeant Koep
By Kaevik at 2012-03-03 21:15:25
You can also get two for the final daily space battle Ascendancy Barrier.
By Kessdona at 2012-03-01 02:18:35
Note for the Empire collection of quests:
Storm Chasing, the bonus series of quests from Operation Shatterstorm, gave two Daily Commendations upon completion. First day I've done it, so I'm not sure if it's repeatable daily as well, but it may be worth checking that and the bonus series tied to Poisonous Strategy as well.
By jilted at 2012-02-01 20:35:53
As of the latest patch, you now get 2 Daily Commendations for completing Space Combat: Ascendancy Barrier.

There are a lot of dailies that you do in the Signal Monitoring Center area in Belsavis. More than Calthaza listed in his otherwise useful post.
By Rundin at 2011-12-27 08:41:23
The only planets that currently have quests for daily commendations are ilum and Belsavis. There are a total of 17 daily commendations available each day; this total includes Heroics.

Found one of these as a drop off a level one mob in the starter area for Smugglers. Still not 100% sure what they are used for, but that is where I got mine from. Hope this helps!
