As seen in the table above, the maximum number of commendations per week is 86 Black Hole commendations. To gain this maximum amount of commendations, besides the weekly quests, you need to do the specified operation in Story and Hard mode in one week.
To see how this translates to item costs, let’s go to the next chapter.

Item Costs:
As stated above, Black Hole Commendations are used to purchase Black Hole items that were introduced in the 1.2 patch – Legacy.
These items can be bought from the Campaign and Black Hole Vendors that can be found on Imperial and Republic Fleet in the Supplies Quarter.
The name of these items differ from the Columni/Rakata/Campaign ones as follows:



As you can see, 495 Black Hole commendations are needed to gear your character with full Black Hole equipment (except the main hand weapon and relics). This gear looks the same as the Campaign equipment, has different stats and doesn’t have set bonuses.
Doing a simple math, you can see that gearing you character with Black Hole items takes aproximately 6 weeks.
