SWTOR Dev Blog Discusses Galactic Reputation System Coming in 1.7
The system will provide a new way for players to advance their characters, tracking your reputation with each of the galaxy’s major organizations. Players will gain Reputation Points and advance through six ranks — Outsider, Newcomer, Friend, Hero, Champion, and Legend — and there’s no way to lose reputation.
As your Reputation Rank increases, new rewards will become available to you, similar to with Light/Dark Side Points and Social Rank. Throughout the galaxy, you will find Reputation Vendors associated with each organization. Special rewards with Reputation Rank requirements can be purchased from these vendors. Items and equipment with a Reputation Rank requirement can only be purchased, used, or equipped if you meet or exceed the rank requirement.
When you achieve specific Reputation Ranks, you will earn a new type of reward called a Legacy Title, which can be used in place of your Legacy surname title. Reputation will be tracked across your entire Legacy.
