Commendation of Valor
 Commendation of Valor
 Drop locations
End rewards for epic quests offer Commendations of Valor as one of the reward options. You must not have a Quest ransack XP penalty when completing the quest. The amount depends on the difficulty of the quest (see below).
Doubleclicking a Commendation of Valor brings up a Barter UI with the following options:
|Potion of Insightful Ability (+2)||Bound to Account||40|
|Potion of Spellpower (+25)||Bound to Account||35|
|Potion of Prowess (+2)||Bound to Account||35|
|Iconic True Heart of Wood||Bound to Account||4200|
|Epic Heart of Wood||Bound to Account||4200|
|Heart Seed||Bound to Account||100|
As of Update 20 Patch 1, Heart Seed option has been implemented. 42 of these can be traded in for Iconic or Epic Heart of Wood. In the other words, players are now able to accumulate their Heart Seeds account-wide, towards the Heart they want. See DDO Forums CoV Dev Update.
 Amount per quest level and difficulty
The amount of CoV rewarded upon completion depend on the quest level (modified by the choice of difficulty) and the difficulty the quest was run on. The amount is given by
- Multiplier*(QuestLevel - 17)
- Multiplier is 2 for Epic Normal, 3 for Epic Hard and 5 for Epic Elite.
|Epic Normal||Epic Hard||Epic Elite|
The graph below shows the amount of commendations of Valor given based on base quest level. It is also valid for raids that can be ran on epic difficulty.
As of Update 21, The XP bonus found on Experience Elixirs, VIP bonuses, Guild Airship amenities and items now also increases the Commendation of Valor return found in End Reward lists.
 Bonus Days and sever-side parameter
DDO Bonus Days event can increase the amount given per a reward list. This means that above number is not hard-coded and can be changed by sever-side parameter.
However, 100 CoVs is the maximum per an reward list (due to stack size limit?). ex. During a +100% bonus event, running a quest above level 26 or above on EE will not return the calculated amount of CoV.
