So you want to earn commendations without having to kill freeps, right?
Map deeds are pretty much your best and only bet. Focus on quests that fall under a given keep in your quest log, rather than ones under 'ettenmoors'. 10 quests for a keep gets you 500 comms and a 'crude' map, 25 total for a keep is 1000 more comms and a 'poor' map, 50 total is another 1500 comms and a 'good' map, so earning all 3 maps for all 5 keeps gets you 15,000 comms in total, plus the quest rewards. Getting these maps (aside from good Isen, which is kinda useless) is a huge part of becoming an effective creep player, as the mobility they provide is invaluable.
