Reputation is a Player Pirate statistic in Sea of Thieves that represents the Player's effort and dedication towards specific Trading Companies. Reputation with specific Companies can be seen through the Reputation Menu under the Pirate Menu.
How to earn Reputation
The main way of earning Reputation with a Trading Company or Faction is by completing achievement-like Commendations for these Companies. Commendations may reward players with Titles, Cosmetics or Currencies. All the different Companies and their Commendations can be found in the Pirate Menu, under the Reputation tab.
The other way is to gain Reputation with a specific Trading Company is to earn Reputation Experience with a Company. There are currently seven Trading Companies that have Reputation levels with scalable Promotions. These levels are gained through selling Company Representatives company-specific Treasure, completing tasks or Commendations for the Company, lowering high-grade Emissary Flags at the Company Emissary Table or purchasing single Levels via Letters of Recommendation from the Black Market in Taverns.
All Treasure items sold to a Company Representative while sailing as an Emissary for that Company will give Player Crews increased Reputation, with more Reputation given the higher the Crew's Emissary Grade.

- Reputation experience gains are tied to specific Treasure Items and not their Gold value or Emissary Value. This means that every item of the same type will always give the same amount of Reputation experience once sold to the respective Trading Company. Items with the same monetary value will also give different amounts of Reputation to different Companies.
- Voyages offered by Gold Hoarders, Order of Souls or Merchant Alliance will only scale with purchased Promotions and not Reputation levels. Therefore a level 50 Gold Hoarder without any Promotions will still get Voyages with single Islands.
- Players can only buy 1 Letter of Recommendation for each of the five Companies per update.
