Bungie will be phasing out Commendations along with the other changes to progression economy that are coming out with the 1.2.0 update, when the when the House of Wolves expansion releases.
For those of you that don’t know, Commendations are special currencies earned through leveling up Vanguard Commendation or Crucible ranks and can be used to purchase weapons or gear .
“Essentially, they’re going away,” David Dague, Bungie’s Community Manager wrote. “You’ll no longer need them to acquire new weapons or gear. If you have a bunch of them stockpiled, you can burn them for reputation. Gaining reputation will speed you toward your next promotion, thus earning you another reward package. To prosper and equip yourself with new stuff, just earn Marks!”
According to a recent posts, Iron Banner hits off at 10:00 a.m. PT on Tuesday, April 28. It was postponed so Bungie could monitor “the impact that Update 1.1.2 would have on the Crucible.”
Also, earlier this week, Bungie held a Destiny livestream to give players a run down on the upcoming House of Wolves expansion, and the updates that are heading to the main game.
