Eric Musco has informed the community that Bioware will be merging all the cartel bazaar vendor reputations into one come with game update 5.9.2.

As many of you in the thread already guessed, in 5.9.2 we will be combining all existing Cartel Market Reputations into one, the Underworld Exchange. Let’s talk about why we are making this change and how it will work. Why Combine the Reputations? Having all of the older Reputations wasn’t really serving a purpose anymore. Since we are direct selling most CM items and with the implementation of the Ultimate Pack we haven’t been bringing back embargoed packs.
