This currency is bind on legacy.
You use this currency to increase your reputation with the Shadow Syndicate.
How to increase your Reputation with the Shadow Syndicate
You use Underworld Syndicate Plans to increase your reputation with the Shadow Syndicate. You turn them into Qi’us Dnar, located on the Lower Promenade on Nar Shaddaa. Here’s a map of her location.
When you speak to her, the dialogue options allow you to choose how many Underworld Syndicate Plans you turn in. Here is a table showing how much reputation you get for turning in Underworld Syndicate Plans.
|Underworld Syndicate Plan||Reputation Trophy||Reputation Points|
|1||Shadow Syndicate Note of Appreciation||25 Points|
|5||Shadow Syndicate Note Commendation||100 Points|
|10||Medium Shadow Syndicate Commendation||250 Points|
|20||Large Shadow Syndicate Commendation||500 Points|
|100||Large Shadow Syndicate Commendation x5||2500 Points|
Once you turn in a plan/s and gain some reputation with the Shadow Syndicate, you will be able to see the Shadow Syndicate Reputation Track in your Legacy.
The weekly reputation cap is: 5000
There is a Jawa found in the Cartel Bazaar on your factions fleet with whom you can trade Jawa Scrap for Jawa Intel. Jawa Intel is a boost that increases the chance of Underworld Syndicate Plans dropping from mobs. Jawa Intel costs 500 Scrap: Jawa Scrap (Purple).
You can find the Jawa Brrazz on the Cartel Bazaar of your Factions Fleet.
If you have Fen Zeil with you when you talk to Brrazz you get some additional dialogue.
The only known rewards associated with this reputation track are the Legacy Titles.
|Master of Shadows||Hero|
|The Shadow’s Veil||Legend|
A reputation vendor was not found on the PTS even by a player who got Legend Rank, sadly. Whether Bioware will add one on live servers remains to be seen.
Lore: Who are the Shadow Syndicate?
The Shadow Syndicate are an underworld organisation that has existed for a while but fell on hard times. Now led by Fen Zeil, they are trying to rebuild with the help of powerful allies.
Here is a current description of the organisation from the official SWTOR website.
Once a prominent organization on Nar Shaddaa, tensions between the Shadow Syndicate and the Exchange, as well as unchecked infighting, led to their downfall. Fen, who has a long history in the underworld scene, has established himself as the new figurehead and is looking to bring about a new Shadow of the Underworld–with your help.
