    To get this you have to be rank 50 in Merchants, Order of Souls and Gold Hoarders. Once you reach level 50 and purchase all the individual promotions from each faction in the top left "promotions" from each of the three faction vendors for leveling up mission difficulty you need to speak to the mysterious stranger in any bar. After they complete their rhyme you will become a pirate legend and givin the base pirate legend outfit and a new shanty to play on your instruments. Playing the new tune in the bar near the left wall will open a hidden stairwell in the floor that grants you and your crew access to the legends hideout.

    edit: I did try to speak to the mysterious stranger without buying the final gold hoarder upgrade and he told me when I reach 50 to come back. I purchased last gold hoarder upgrade and spoke to him again and it popped right away.

    Friggin Grease This has been made SLIGHTLY easier because now you can buy a level of reputation with your desired faction with doubloons from the timed events. They cost 30 each, so Maybe skip the cosmetic weapons and items until you get this achievement.

    JackBlaise Been updated now so that you can be level 50 in any 3 of the 5 factions.

    mrbellek It should be noted that the 'letter of recommendation' has been nerfed. Before the September 2019 update, you could buy unlimited letters - now you can only buy one letter, per faction, per month.

    This was done because earning doubloons has become a lot easier since that update (and even easier since then), so they rebalanced that reputation boost.
