    Whatever you're looking for, XP, loot, commendations, etc, the kings forest is THE WORST PLACE TO GET IT.

    For commendations, the easiest would be: deal & demon 1st chest (until ransacked) druid's deep casual end reward (4 heroic casual quests for 3 comms of any chosen type).

    Default jaytrons comm. tips

    Actually I have had good luck in Kings Forest sometimes leaving with 6 total comms at end of run. The trick is make your route with the map open. An encounter may not show up on screen when close but will show up on map. Like most people said I run to Millers then down the west side of the map til you cross the river and if no green dragons rares are at either spot I recall. I get usually 2 to 3 encounters a run......sometimes more sometimes none.

    Yep. If you can get 5 friends to help, Deal & Demon is 48 random comms in about 30 mins. Too bad they're taking the chest away in U17.

    If you want to run slayers for comms, High Road is much faster and you can run a +2 gem for +4 tomes while you're at it.

That is a ridiculous length of time and I will be maxed out on my epic destiny and at level 25 long before I can get the loot I'm looking for.

    So what am I doing wrong? There has got to be a better way to get commendations.

    Do the random encounters always spawn in the same places? So I could run a normal route through the forest to check for them?
    Do the U15 and U16 harper chain on casual. Each chain end reward has 3 accomendations (of all kinds). It's the quickest way of getting the specific accomendation you want.

    Farm the demonweb for comm's- Trial by Fury has 4 optionals close to the front, takes about 5-10 min to do on EH on a sorc, and you'll come out with ~2-3 comm's a run if you can knock opt 3's chest (the spider). Then, ransack the Deal with the Demon's first chest on EE, can be done in 20 min, gives about 5-8 comms. I took an hour on my sorc last night to get the comms for his greenscale, and got around 20 comms in that time.

    I have to agree with Turbine on this: that chest is downright embarrassing. I have only one epic toon (bard 23 Sensate), and with a fighter hireling he can solo this chest on EE. Not easily -- requires some careful play, hireling usually dies, and Sensate died couple times, -- but still, five minute chest on EE solo should not be possible!

    Good thing Sensate has no use for most Commendation rewards. He already got Purple Dragon Helm and Lenses of the Woodsman, and however much I wracked my brains every other reward is either useless, or takes place of something worth to him more than the reward. So I need not ransack Deal and the Demon chest

    You don't have to kill the spiders. Just run past them and quickly loot the chest, then jump off the side or Dimension Door away. It's more of a 30 second chest than a 5 minute chest.

    Yep, thats a 15 min farm to ransack ^^

    And other uses for comms- pots?? I always want more comms! 2 min haste/ 20 min GH/ 20 min Deathward/ SP Regen/ HP regen/ Restoration pots- who WOULDNT want more of these??? Great for when grouping with casters who wont haste, soloing, or EE CitW when SP isnt for buffing ^^

    Sorry that you are having a hard time getting comms OP. I would recommend posting LFM's and duo quests to farm them.

    I'm sure in 2.5 years OP either managed to get comms and learned how to farm them rapidly, or no longer cares.
