Star Wars: The Old Republic Datacron Location Guide (Belsavis, Corellia, Ilum, Quesh, Voss)
- Dromund Kaas
- Nar Shadda
- Rare Datacron (Sith Empire)
- Rare Datacron (Galactic Republic)
And thus we come to the end of the guide. At least, as far as standard Datacrons are concerned. Here are the last few planets on the list. Here's hoping it helped, and we'll be updating it to keep with changes in location or new content. In the next entry, we'll show you how to get your mitts on the Rare Datacron, which'll give you a hefty +10 to all stats. Nice! Anyway, let's begin.
Faction: Galactic Republic (Accessible by Empire)
Number of Datacrons: 5
Reward: Aim +4, Galactic History 68: The Mandalorians Return
Coordinates: 784, 126
Directions: This one's located in the western region of "The Tomb". Start at -704, 126, and look to the West. There'll be an opening in the rock face, which leads to a small outcropping that extends about five or ten meters across a pool of lava. The datacron's below, on an island on the other side of the pit. You're going to need to make a precision jump down to a nearly-invisible bridge (zoom in as much as you possibly can). There's a good chance you'll just fall through the bridge - if you're having trouble, move around the lava pit until you're to the right of the Datacron's location. Either sprint or use a speeder to jump down to it. Once you have the Datacron, you'll see a Rakata transport that'll take you out of the pit.
Reward: Endurance +4, Galactic History 69: The Mandalorian Wars
Directions: You're going to need to fight through several elites and a champion to obtain this one. If you're not over-leveled for the area, bring some friends, because if you don't, you will die. Start at -1559, 269 in the Maximum Security area. Move from the Maximum Security Area into the High Security Area, following the road. When you reach -990, 27, turn left and go straight north. Eventually, you should reach a hill leading to a cliff- go up the hill, then turn and go south again, keeping on top of the cliff. At the end of the cliff, there's a small chasm, leading to the cave that hides the datacron. Watch yourself-the cave's populated by elites, and the Datacron itself is guarded by Long Claw, a level 41 Champion Ravenous.
Reward: Presence +4, Galactic History 70: The Covenant Acts
Coordinates: -1900, -475
Directions: This one's in the Maximum Security Section. Starting from the Republic Ops center, head southwest. You're going to want to follow the main road (the one that cuts through the entire section) until you come to around -1881, -208. From there, head northeast and up a nearby hill. Eventually, you should come to a small opening in the cliff face to your right (at -2135, 293). Go through the cave, and follow the path on the other side all the way to the right. You'll find your Datacron on a cliff face overlooking a lava pit.
Reward: Green Matrix Shard, Galactic History 71: The Muur Talisman
Coordinates: -315, -2173
Directions: This one is almost more bloody trouble than it's worth. The actual Datacron itself is located in The Tomb area, in Cave Under Tree (the elevator leading down there is located at -547, -2172). Of course, it'd be way too easy if you could just pick the Datacron up and be on your way, right? In order to access this Datacron, you need to activate a machine with four Rakata cubes(white cubes that are a little smaller than Datacrons), which spawn at random, hidden locations all over Belsavis. You should probably bring friends- the more people you've got, the more likely you'll have four cubes between you. In all likelihood, this'll be the last ‘cron you pick up on Belsavis- just keep your eyes peeled as you quest. Some of the following locations tend to spawn cubes more than others (credit to Yoshihumpjon on YouTube for the co-ordinates):
Oh, and these cubes don't glow. Have fun.
Note: Word is, this Datacron's currently bugged- when you activate it, you receive the codex entry.
Reward: Willpower +4, Galactic History 72:
Coordinates: -507, 786
Directions: Yet another Datacron that can be found in the High Security section, this is another particularly straightforward artifact to acquire. Start at -831, 780, and go around the north end of the rock structure that's there. Once you reach a canyon, follow it- you'll eventually get to the Datacron. Compared to Belsavis's White Datacron, this one'll feel like a walk in the park.
Faction: Galactic Republic (Accessible by Empire)
Number of Datacrons: 7
White Datacron 1
Reward: Green Matrix Shard, Galactic History 61: The Brotherhood is Broken
Coordinates: 701, -1890
Directions: In order to obtain this Datacron, you need to have acquired the MGGS on Alderaan. Refer to the Alderaan Datacron Guide for purchase information. If you're planning to get this Datacron, best set aside a bit of time- you're in it for the long haul. First things first, you'll need to take the underground tunnels from the Republic Safehouse to the Coronet Zoo, and then from the zoo into the southwest sector of the city. There's a museum there, located in the Corellian Museum of Starships (The entrance is at 411, 24). Once inside the museum, take the first right turn you can to reach an elevator. Take it to the rooftop Shuttle Pad, and climb up to the top of the first shuttle you see. Use the wing of the ship to reach the edge of the rooftop; then hang an immediate right. When you reach a ledge at 338, 63, jump down onto another roof, immediately in front of you. Follow the lower roof around to the opposite side from where you start, and look up - there'll be a MGGS grappling point on the building opposite you. Jump to the roof immediately to your right once you've grappled up, and enter the Deserted Thoroughfare - the Datacron's waiting for you at the end.
White Datacron 2
Reward: Blue Matrix Shard, Galactic History 62: The Great Sith War Ends
Coordinates: -2423, -763
Directions: This one's pretty straightforward. In the very southeast area of Labor Valley, you'll find a hologram door. Go through that door, follow the path, and nab your Datacron. Simple, right?
Reward: Aim +4, Galactic History 78: The Sith Triumvirate
Coordinates: 3143, -1793
Directions: This one can be pretty tricky- to get it, you're going to have to blow yourself up. In the Government District, at 3118, -1843, inside a dilapidated, ruined building, you'll find a large pillar with several pistons circumventing it. One of those pistons is moving slowly up and down, called the Damaged Line Rail- that's your goal. You're going to want to jump onto that piston, and ride it up to the top. You'll find an explosive crate. Angle yourself so that you're facing the Datacron, and detonate. If you did it right, the explosion will send you sailing to the ledge on which the Datacron rests.
Reward: Willpower +4, Galactic History 79: The Conclave at Katarr
Coordinates: 703, 1718
Directions: Start at the intersection at 1141, -35 in the Southeast corner of the Blastport shipyard. From there, go up the nearby ramp, turn right, and follow a narrow overhang around along the side of the building. Eventually, you'll reach an angled metal support beam. Jump onto it, then use it to jump onto a crossbeam that extends over the support. Turn left, and follow the beam all the way to the next one. Go right, towards a brown power conduit. Use that conduit to jump onto a nearby platform, then use the crates on that platform to get on top of the ship. From the ship, jump onto a nearby shipping container, using that container to get onto another brown piece of machinery. Go around the tower that the machine's pipes connect to; then jump onto a nearby pipe. From there, you'll want to jump up onto a thick segment of black pipe, and then from the pipe down to another ledge. At this point, you should be able to see the Datacron's glow- just keep going straight, and watch your step-it's easy to fall off, particularly in the last segment, where you'll be moving across narrow support beams. One last angled jump, and you'll have your Datacron.
Reward: Presence +4, Galactic History 80: A Return From Exile
Coordinates: 3426, -3610
Directions: Yet another Datacron that you'll find in Corellia's government district, this one will be under the catwalk in the freight region of Port Pevaria. This one's probably going to be quite a bit more difficult for Imperials to obtain, since it's located in a Republic quest hub. In order to reach it, squeeze your way through a narrow opening in a wall of crates, then make your way towards top corner of one of the docks, located at 3418, 258. Jump down onto some pipes (they should just be visible) then hang left, hugging the wall. Careful, because this area's more than a little glitchy- avoid getting too close to the wall, or else you may fall off. The Datacron's located near the end of the path, on an invisible platform.
Reward: Cunning +4, Galactic History 81: The Battle of Telos IV
Coordinates: -2662, -3116
Directions: Back to Labor Valley you go! You'll need to start at -2493, -58, and jump up onto the first overhang. Loop around the edge of the building until you reach a large, black pipe hanging over a large duct. Use the pipe to get up onto said duct, and follow it forward. Here's where it gets complicated. You're going to jump from the duct onto the top of a ruined tunnel, then jump from the tunnel onto the piping. From the pipe, you'll have to make a rather difficult jump- turn off sprint, and jump from the pipe down to the piece of the tunnel's floor that juts out the most. The Datacron's straight ahead.
Reward: Strength +4, Galactic History 82: Darth Traya's Return
Coordinates: -2755, -2005
Directions: The final Datacron on Corellia is also located in Labor Valley. To reach it, start at -2900, -2075, and jump up on top of an overhanging sail. There's a bent pipe attached to the sail- climb up it, and then wait for the Sith Fighter to arrive. Hitch a ride on it, and remain there until it reaches the other end of the yard. Once you reach the scaffold at -2800, -2075, drop down onto the containers just to the East. Move from these containers to a second stack, using a nearby crane, then from the second stack, climb onto the roof that holds the Datacron.
Faction: Independent (Occupied by the Sith Empire)
Number of Datacrons: 5
Other Notes: For those of you playing through the game solo, Ilum is an endgame location.
Reward: Aim +4, Galactic History 83: The Republic Rebuilds
Coordinates: 924, 1076
Directions: To get this Datacron, you're going to need to dip into the exhaustion zone a bit- don't panic, you won't be in there for long enough to take lethal damage. Start at the cliff located at 1004, -10 in the Eastern Ice Shelf zone. What you're going to want to do is set out and hug the left side of the cliff. Travel all the way around, and you'll eventually come to a ‘safe zone' which houses the Datacron.
Note: This Datacron might currently be bugged. If it is, just return to it later.
Reward: Endurance +4, Galactic History 84: The G0-T0 Coup
Coordinates: 103, -78
Directions: Probably one of the most straightforward Datacrons on Ilum, this one's located in a canyon towards the center of the Eastern Ice Shelf. Situated at 190, -19, there's something akin to a set of rock ‘stairs' that you can drop down to get into the canyon without plummeting to your death. Republic players, watch out for the imperial mobs along the way- they won't take kindly to you wandering about their turf.
White Datacron 1
Reward: Red Matrix Shard, Galactic History 85: The Purge of The Dark Council
Coordinates: 543, 544
Directions: Hoo, boy. While Republic players pretty much get this Datacron handed to them on a silver platter, Imperials are likely to have a bit tougher of a time- it's located in the upper area of the Republic Base Camp on the Eastern Ice Shelf, in a domed tent located at 543, 544. You can literally just walk in and grab it.
White Datacron 2
Reward: Yellow Matrix Shard, Galactic History 86: The Empire's Revenge
Coordinates: 311, -380
Directions: A lot of Imperial players might be a touch frustrated that the previous Datacron was so difficult to get. Not to worry, my friends- this one's a ‘gimme' for the Empire. Just like the previous White Datacron was located in the Republic Base camp, this one's located in a large building in the Imperial Base Camp. Republic players will have to fight their way past a lone guard- it shouldn't prove all that difficult, so long as you don't have any run-ins with Imperial PCs.
Reward: Willpower +4, Galactic History 87: A Wayward Apprentice
Coordinates: 304, -1569
Directions: Starting at the Imperial Base Camp, follow the road North to a Heroic area. Republic players are going to have a pretty easy time of this, since the mobs in the area are allies. Imperials…not so much. Anyway, once you get to the center of the area, you'll want to hang right towards a large canyon located in the Barren Frost. At about 940, -10, there'll be a ramp hidden just over the edge. Take the ramp down to the canyon floor, and follow it all the way to where it terminates in the north. There, at 309, -94, you'll find a cave entrance. Enter the cave, and go straight through- towards the back, hidden behind a stalagmite, you'll find the last Datacron on Ilum.
Faction: Independent (Occupied by the Galactic Republic)
Number of Datacrons: 3
Reward: Cunning +4, Galactic History 58: Ulic's Trials
Coordinates: 425, -132
Directions: Starting at 325, 70 in the Republic mining camp, make a right, and go up the hill, then down the other side, through a small hole in the wall. Follow the path at the foot of the hill until you reach 559, 119 and then make a right and use the pipes to jump up to a platform. Walk until you find a hole in the fence. Go through that hole, around a large brown pipe, and to your Datacron.
Reward: Endurance +4, Galactic History 59: Aleema's Fate
Coordinates: 207, 773
Directions: Hey, guess what? For this artifact, you get to gas yourself! Make sure you bring a healer.
First thing you're going to want to do is enter the Yuna Crosscut (the entrance is located at -9, 715.) Once there, follow the cave as far down as it'll take you, until you come to a door with a panel. Walk through, and rotate your camera so that you can activate the panel from inside (or bring a friend along to do it for you). Once the gas is flooding the chamber, look around- you should see two pillars, each with a console on it. Activate the one nearest to you first; then activate the other. A door to the south will open, and you can GTFO to your Datacron.
Reward: Strength +4, Galactic History 60: The Destruction of Ossus
Coordinates: 558, 1422
Directions: The third and final Datacron is located just north of the Three Families War Camp, on the approach to Broga's Palace. At around 508, 1810, turn right and hug the wall. You should eventually see Quesh's third and final Datacron on a hill to your left.
Faction: Independent (Occupied by the Galactic Republic)
Number of Datacrons: 5
Reward: Endurance +4, Galactic History 73: The Battle of Malachor V
Coordinates: -1948, -2228
Directions: Believe it or not, this Datacron is actually a quest reward. There's a questline on Voss called Trials, which ends at the Shrine of Healing. Get the first quest in the series, "Roadblock," from Suva-Rak (1770, -854). Once you're in the shrine, use the green crystal in the northeast corner of the room to gain access to the Datacron. Simple, right?
Reward: Cunning +4, Galactic History 74: Revan and Malak Fall
Coordinates: 514, 175
Directions: This one's going to be a bit difficult, if only because it's located in The Nightmare Lands' heroic area, The Boneyard. Before making the trek to acquire this Datacron, make sure you pick up the shield decoder no the corpse at 443, 206 (it's right next to a ruined walker). Right overtop of where the Datacron's sitting, there'll be a concrete platform with a red forcefield covering it. Use the shield decoder on one of the nearby terminals. The forcefield will drop and activate an elevator that'll take you down to the Datacron.
Reward: Presence +4
Region: Nightmare Lands
Directions: Northeast in the Nightmare Lands there is a small oblong lake with an island in it. On the island are 3 mystics chanting at a stone tablet. Activating the tablet will put you in a dream state and place you inside a cave with mystics and a Datacron. Claim the Datacron and return through a 2nd stone tablet.
Reward: Presence +4, Galactic History 75: The Jedi Civil War
Coordinates: 2000, -940
Directions: In the far northeast of the Nightmare Lands (directly west of Ghen's Overlook), you'll find a lake with a small island in the middle of it. On this island, you'll find three mystics meditating at a stone dais. Activate the meditation tablet on the dais, and you'll be sent into some kind of trance, where you'll somehow manage to find the Datacron. Come back to your senses by activating the Meditation Tablet inside the cave.
Reward: Strength +4, Galactic History 76: Revan is Remade
Coordinates: 654, 2050
Directions: To reach this Datacron, first travel to the Gormak Lands. The entrance to where you want to be starts at 401, 207. From that point, go up a nearby incline that hugs the side of a mountain. When you reach what looks like a dead end, hang right- you should find yourself in a tunnel leading through the rock face. From there, it's pretty straightforward- the Datacron's more or less out in the open, next to a pillar of stone.
Reward: Willpower +4, Galactic History 77: Return to Unknown Regions
Coordinates: -29, 372
Directions: This Datacron can be found in a valley right next to Voss-Ka, surrounded by a Stonehenge-esque circle. To get it, take a taxi to Ken-La outpost, then go to the southeast corner of the area. First things first, you'll want to climb the nearby mountain- the path leading up starts at -442, 405. Once you get to -436, 185, climb up a couple rocks to reach the entrance to a cave, at -385, 134. Go through the cave, and you'll eventually wind up in the valley, right near the last Datacron on Voss.
