Guild Commendation Trader sells items that use this currency.
- Guild members earn Guild Commendations, while guilds earn Guild Merits.
- Guild Commendations are received at the successful completion of each Guild mission in a small chest that appears on the lower-right of the screen. Double-click this small chest to receive the Guild Commendations and additional loot.
- The small chest will not appear if Guild Commendations have already been received for the current type of mission that week, if you are not representing a Guild that has activated the current mission or if you have not personally fulfilled the minimum requirements (generally getting one or more hits on mobs associated with the mission).
- A larger chest will spawn at a fixed location upon your successful completion of each Guild Rush and Guild Puzzle, but not for other Guild Missions. The larger chest will contain additional loot, but not Guild Commendations. You may loot this larger chest even if you do not qualify for the smaller chest.
- A second larger chest spawns at a different fixed location for certain Guild Puzzles. It will contain additional loot, but not Guild Commendations.
