commendations of valor should drop in all epic chests and end lists, droprate scaled for difficulty.
as for BtC? yeah, the hate for BtC is strong, and also reasonable, from both a storage and usage perspective. commendations should be BtA just as epic tokens *cough* tokens of the twelve are now.
1anymore than they do right now. if turbine want people to run their new content, they should make content more people want to run, for *gasp* fun. because, y'know, it's a game.
