    You will need to complete a few quests for one of the factions until you are able to unlock level 5. Once you do, when you talk to the quest giver and look at their offers it will be the upper left option to buy an promotion. It will show unchained (unlocked) once you have earned enough reputation with the faction to unlock it.
    Apparently (as mentioned in the comments below, thanks peeps) you can earn rank by earning money, selling items like explosive barrels. You can also earn experience by purchasing 5 voyages. If you wish to do so quickly you can purchase 3, propose them in a solo game and then cancel so you can buy 2 more. Personally...if you are going to play this game, this should just pop naturally you don't really have to "work" at it. That is if it doesn't go buggy on you.

    Hopefully the bug gets fixed for those of you suffering w/ it.

    Good luck out there!

    Vandel BusterThe ranking is dependant on the amount of cash you get from things you sell. The gold received is basically XP. You could potentially rank up from selling a TON of explosive barrels.

    Basically, it might not be five quests for everyone if the things they turn in give them more gold, but it's a good estimate of the amount of quests needed.

    AussieBigfootYou need to reach level 5 (not complete 5 quests) with a faction to get the first promotion.

    KungFuStu72If you complete the commendations you also earn quite a bit of experience. There is a very easy commendation for purchasing 5 voyages, which cost no gold. So purchase 3, get on your ship, propose and cancel them then buy another 2 and you're more than half way to level 5 and your first promotion.

    KungFuMonk3yRare is pushing a patch out next week that they hope will fix achievements. You'll just have to play the game to have fun playing the game....or wait till next week and hopefully it'll be fixed.

    GRAND NOBLEI had already bought about 5 or 6 and this didn't pop. But it finally did today. Just keep moving forward, these achvs will pop (eventually).

    MortaigneStill not popping for me. Bought 15 promotions or so since launch, latest one yesterday. Bugged as hell.

    KungFuMonk3yIt finally popped for me after that last patch they did. I wonder if maybe you deleted saved info from xbox so that it pulled down from cloud if that would do it? Just guessing
