    What's Next?

    Becoming a Master Smuggler does not mean that your journey is over, and in fact, opens up new gameplay opportunities to advance your character and carve out an even greater name for yourself amongst the denizens of the galaxy. Following your mastery of the Smuggler profession, the Underworld Smuggling Missions will become available, allowing you to gain a reputation with the Underworld, additional stat bonuses, and further rewards by running contraband across planets and through space.

    You can also set up shop as a spice crafter, churning out the finest, purest substances for the galactic markets, or personal use if that suits you. If crafting itself is not your favorite task, you can easily establish yourself as a slicer-for-hire, with individual players, as well as established armor- and weaponsmiths, paying to squeeze just a little more power out of their goods. You may be able to establish a long-term income base by working out an agreement with a crafter to pre-slice their goods in batches prior to sale.

    It is also recommended to begin working on the various Contraband collections such as Counterfeit Credits and False Information. Finishing all 5 collections will grant the schematic for the DD6 Pistol, a powerful Smuggler-only weapon.
