Datacrons are ancient fountains of knowledge that grant attribute bonuses or a matrix shard (blue, green, red or yellow) once found.
Total attribute increase (not including attributes from collecting all the Matrix Shards):
Step 1: Obtain items needed to access the datacrons
First item - MGGS in Alderaan
Second item - Red Crystal in Corellia. You need this to open the door to get into the maintenance shaft.
Third item - Blue Crystal in the Republic Fleet. You need this to open the datacron doorway. This part also shows you how to get to the Datacron location in Gav Daragon.
Step 2: Rally your friends. Minimum: 5 people. Slow and frustrating as you will have to rotate positions 1 by 1 if everyone needs the datacrons. Recommended: 8 people. Faster and less frustrating. 1 rotation only if everyone needs the datacrons. Make sure EVERYONE has the 3 items.
Step 3: Get in the maintenance shaft
Step 4: Get across the bridge
Step 5: Position all members (Position Map). Main positions are at A, D, B and E. Point E is the buggiest. Be patient. Just spam the grappling point.
Step 6: Grappling time!

- Ride the Damaged Lift at 1085, 2 (east of Wardpost Landa, in The Juran Mountains area) to the small island. Lift moves very slow. This is a rather easy Datacron to get to; the hardest part of reaching this Datacron is finding the path that leads to the Damaged Lift which you need to take down to the little island that the Datacron is on. The path is across the bridge at the very start of the "Organa Medical Camp". It can be found at the Coordinates 1161 , 230. Follow the snowy path down to the Damaged Lift which you will need to wait for. Once it arrives you need to jump ontop of it, carefully, and then slowly ride it down to the small island that the Datacron is on below. If you're having trouble making the jump wait until it starts down the wire towards the island and jump onto it diagonally. Once you're over top the island jump off the lift and collect the Datacron reward!

- -82, -268
- In The Glarus Valley, ride the Saddled Thranta at -412, -209. This is another extremely easy Datacron to get. In fact all it really requires you to do is ride a Thranta (the big white thing) up to the Datacron. The Thranta that you need to ride can be found around - 406 , -211. Once you right click the Thranta it will fly you up to the Datacron's location. You land next to a Thranta nest, with the Datacron a few feet away.
- +3 Willpower
- -2508, -427
- Located inside the Castle Panteer
- Go through a crack in the door at (-2489, -370)
- The datacron is on the 2nd floor.
- This Datacron is located in Castle Panteer which is located in far western Glarus Valley. If you're having trouble finding it, it is where the final quest of Alderaan takes place. In Castle Panteer there is a small little gap between the door and a wall which you can sneak through to reach the Willpower Datacron. Once you make it through the gap head up the stairs and follow the northern path around the room you come out into. The reason you want to do this is because there is a fallen pillar which blocks off the southern route.
- +4 Strength
- 2190, -2019 (on the face of the Lerantha Dam)
- Negotiate the rocks closest to the datacron (it is a very visible RED).
- Get to the feature below the outcropping then hop up the ladder. Better to get an MGGS (Medically Guided Grappling System) from a vendor just south of outpost Talarn, over near King's Pass
- There are two ways for players to reach this Datacron, the first is by buying an item from a vendor for 10,000 credits and the second does not require this item but requires a bit of jumping. This guide is going to cover the second option because it will save you the credits and because if you use the item... You don't even really need a guide. I will however show you where this vendor is located just incase you'd rather take that option. Note that if you do go to this vendor to buy the MGGS also buy the Red Detonite Actuator from him, it is required for another Datacron on Alderaan. The Coordinates for this vendor are (1869 , 1091). Whether or not you buy the item let's continue now to the Datacron. This Datacron is located at the Lerantha Dam in the Kaamos Territory which is in far northern Alderaan. To reach Kaamos Territory you need to travel north through the Juran Mountains. Once you reach Kaamos Territory you will need to go far northeast through it until you come across the Lerantha Dam
- If you have the MGGS then all you need to do is right click the Magnetic Stabilizer above the Datacron. Your MGGS will pull you over to the ledge and you can jump to drop down to the Datacron. E Z as 1 2 3. Jumping is too, all you need to do is run across the rocks a bit off to the side of the Datacron and jump down to the little metal ledge below the Datacron. From here jump up the ladder until you reach the platform with the Datacron and then... *Drum roll* collect it!
- +3 Endurance
- 2721, 2496
- You first have to purchase a Red Detonite Actuator from the vendor at the Tarlarn Outpost (1869, 1091)
- Enter cave at (2373, 2449)
- (You will have to go through a group area to get to this cave)
- Use the Actuator you purchased to blow the wall and expose the datacron.
- IMPORTANT: In order to retrieve this Datacron you will need to buy the item, Red Detonite Actuator from Lain-Ricie who can be found in southern Juran Mountains. Coordinates:(1869, 1091)
- This Datacron is located in southern Alderaan in King's Pass. Once you have the Red Detonite Actuator travel far south in King's Pass until you come to a cave entrance. Be warned that this cave is filled with elites, it is going to be a challenge and maybe even impossible if you're not at least level 50.
- Once you're in the cave go directly east until you come out. Here you will need to arm the bomb via the Blast Pack on the rocks. Once you blast open the wall run through into the room and grab your reward!
- +3 Endurance (Republic)
- 191, -346
- Inside the Colicoid Queen's lair, when you enter, along the left side of the main room where the Queen resides there should be a small gap. Follow the path killing several Colicoid along the way, at the end the datacron is there.
- +4 Willpower (Republic)
- -779, 2069
- Located in Gorinth Canyon, this is actually easy to get to.
- Start from Lower Markaran Outpost (upper), take the path leadin south to a destroyed bridge.
- Along the right side off the cliff(POV facing the bridge) there is a pipe leading across, take it.
- follow the path and keep an eye looking downwards for the datacron. Jump down and its yours.
- +2 Aim (Sith)
- -1017, 1514
- Located in the Okara Droid Factory in the Markaran Plains area
- Go to the Assembly Line level of the factory
- Underneath the 2nd Assembly line, at wp (-1027, 53), there is an opening that leads to the datacron
- The datacron is sitting on the bottom of the long pipe to your left. You will have to drop down on this pipe (it's a long drop, even longer if you miss. Just know it is inside the heroic area.
- Green Matrix Shard (Sith) - Requires a two player team

Obtaining MGGS for the Green Matrix Shard. To get the next datacron, you will need the MGGS. This can be found in Alderaan/King's Pass at coordinates (1180, 1109). This is the same vendor where you bought the Red Detonite Actuator for Endurance+3 in Alderaan.
On the way there, get the Red Crystal for the +10 all stats datacrons in the Imperial fleet.
7. Green Matrix Shard, X: 700, Y: -1890, Axial Park/Deserted Thoroughfare
- +2 Presence (old galactic market/shipping and receiving docks)
- 2318, 1072
- This is by far the easiest Datacron for players to find on Coruscant. It is located right off the very first quest hub you come out to while leveling through Coruscant and it is in such an obvious place that you practically trip over it while questing.
- +2 Endurance In Black Sun territory (start by climbing barrel at (-3773,133)).
- -3626, 151
- Much like the Yellow Matrix Shard, this Datacron requires a lot of jumping from object to object to reach. To get started head to the Black Sun Territory at around the middle of the zone. The first thing you will want to jump on top of are the barrels back in the corner. Then from the barrels to the crate onto more barrels and then onto the side of the dumpster. From here you will want to jump across the small gap to the crate. Also, so you have a good idea of where you're going you can take a look to your east and see the Datacron in the distance. Back to jumping, once you make it across to the crate follow more barrels up, onto the dumpster and then another crate, more barrels and then a large metal thingy. From up here you'll want to traverse the small little pipe and hop up onto the large platform that goes towards the Datacron. Towards the end of this platform you'll see three broken pipes, only one is within jumping distance so obviously that's the one you'll want to be jumping too! Once you land on that pipe follow it down to the large platform and jump up there. Travel a bit down the large platform to the second pipe that was out of reach before, now this time you can easily jump right on down to it, which you will want to do. Once you land on this pipe follow it across to the other platform on the otherside. Once you make it to that platform you will have the most difficult jump so far ahead of you. What you need to do here is jump onto the billboard. Sounds easy but the cache is that there is a few feet missing on the top of the billboard so you need to make it over that onto the slim board. Once you make it to and across the board though you're home free because the Datacron is right there!
- +2 Cunning In Justicar territory (start by climbing storage containers nearby).
- 1022, 3970
- To reach this Datacron you will first need to go to the Justicar Territory on Coruscant. From here you'll want to run almost directly west to about the middle of northern Coruscant, coords are 1034, -1061. Once you're here you'll want to scale the boxes directly in front of you up until you reach a pipe on your left. The jump right before was a difficult one. The only way to manage to do it without much trouble was to not stop running once you got on top the crate, jump to the box and then a running jump to the other crate. Make your way up both of the crates here and onto the small pipe that travels along the wall. Now it's the hard part of this Datacron. You'll see three pipes in a row, you'll need to jump to each one in order until you make it on top of the one running over the hallway below. Once you make it onto this pipe you'll want to follow it down to the very large pipe at the end. Once you're on the large pipe you can get a good look at the Datacron across the way! From here on out you really don't have to jump, from the big pipe to the other little pipe below you can simply just walk onto it. Once you're on the small pipe run across it to the ledge that the Datacron is on. Jump up then jump up onto the crate with the Datacron and bam, you're all done!
- +2 Strength In the Jedi Temple (start by climbing up the fallen pillar).
- -3087, 3031
- The Strength +2 Datacron is located in the Jedi Temple area of Coruscant. Compared to the other Datacrons this one is fairly easy to get to, it just takes a bit of patience and coordination as do the others. First you will need to find the Jedi Temple, once there you'll want to head over to a large fallen pillar which you need to climb. Once up the pillar you'll want to run around the broken rubble heading westward. If you take a look around up top you can see the Datacron already.After you run around the broken rubble you'll end up right near the Datacron. All that's left is a small fall onto the pillar which holds the Datacron and then a quick walk to the Datacron. That's all there is to it!
- Yellow Matrix Shard
- 948, 4540
- In The Works (start by climbing the up-slanted pipe near (1172,4422)it may look like the pipes are too steep but continue to follow the pipes until they end in a solid platform. At one point, you will come to a junction, stay on the left path.
- Jump up onto the boxes and then the pipe nearby. Run up the pipe and jump to the other pipe right in front of you once you reach the top. After you make the jump follow this pipe down (be careful of the drop) until you reach the intersection. At the intersection you will need to jump to the southern pipe and follow that further down, around the corner and to the next jump. This jump is a big one so watch out, it's easy to fall here and if you do you're going to have to start allllll over again. Once you make it to the other pipe follow it up until you reach a pipe right on top of the pipe you're on. This is the hardest jump in my opinion, try to stick yourself against the wall and jump/run up the pipe in front of you. But be very careful, one mistake and you have to start over! At the top of this pipe is a little hop to the pipe below. This jump is a bit difficult too but only because your camera angle will be wonky up here.
- TIP: Don't Run off. Follow this small pipe up until you reach a large platform. From here you will be able to see the Datacron! Homestretch! Alright, now is a really annoying jump, mainly because it's the last one. After you make it across the final pipe give yourself a pat on the back. You deserve it!

- +3 Presence (Republic)
- Red Light District
- Finally, an easy one. The Datacron is at X: 3341, Y: -3285 in the Red Light District. First take the elevator to the Gauntlet Gang Area; start at the top of the stairs at 3690, -1522. Jump onto the orange junk from the ledge, until you can reach a brown awning. Run up the awning. From the awning, jump onto a platform leading to an elevator. Ride the elevator up and the Datacron will be in view ahead.
- +3 Aim (Republic)
- Nikto Sector – Swoop Bike Drag
- Start in the northeast corner of the area map. What you want to find here is a stack of crates at about the same level as an awning. Use the smaller boxes to get up on the containers, jumping from container to container, until you find the brown awning. Jump onto the awning, then look for support cable anchors you can walk up. Run up them, passing a large pipe, and make a running jump to another pipe leading to a sign. Jumping onto the sign can be tricky, but once you’re on it, you only have one large platform to hop to. Get on the wide platform, and you’ll find the Datacron waiting for you at the end.
- +3 Strength (Republic)
- Shadow Town – Access Tunnels
- Next to the path leading into Camp 27, you’ll find some crates at about X: 2304, Y: 3071 on your area map. Jump up the boxes, and get up on the upper level. Once there, run straight forward and turn right when you spot an opening in the mesh fence. Ahead you’ll find even more boxes to jump on, leading up onto beams overlooking the plaza below. Continue forward until you reach a beam leading to a pipe in the wall to your left.
- Jump onto those pipes, then onto a large light. From this light, you’ll find an even bigger light to jump onto. Across from the larger light is a zig-zagging pipe you’ll need to make a running jump onto. On the pipe, follow it right, then hop down to the lower pipe below you. Follow the path, jumping from pipe to pipe, until you reach a ledge. Climb up, follow the path around, and you’ll find an elevator. Take the elevator down to the Access Tunnels, and you’ll have no problem finding the Datacron at the end of the road.
- +3 Aim (Empire)
- Corellian Sector
- To find this Datacron, look for some shelves at X: -3791, Y: -1668 in the Corellian Sector area. Climb up onto the roof, and wait for a floating advertisement projector to pass by the roof. It passes by every 5 minutes and moves REALLY slow. It will come extremely close to the platform so this is an easy jump. Jump onto the projector, and ride it for about five minutes. You should be able to see the platform with the Datacron. Wait for the projector to float by, then drop off onto the platform to collect the Datacron.
- +3 Strength (Empire)
- Network Access – Taxi
- Start at the Taxi Station, and look below you from above for a blue taxi you can’t normally reach on a lit purple-ish platform. Jump down to a pipe, then onto a large ledge below. Make sure to heal yourself, the second jump is going to hurt. From the large ledge, you can easily drop down onto the taxi’s platform, and use it. Use it, the taxi will take you straight to the Datacron.
- +3 Presence (Empire)
- Red Light Sector – Catwalks
- Begin at X: 1595, Y: -2671 and climb the nearby boxes. At the top, you’ll need to jump onto three beams leading you to yet more boxes, and a brown canvas awning. Cross the awning to a platform leading to an elevator, which you can ride up to the catwalks. Exiting the elevator, you can spot the Datacron ahead. Use the pipes hugging the wall to your left, then jump down to the canvas awning leading to the Datacron itself.
- +3 Cunning (Republic/Empire)
- High Security Lockdown – Incinerator Room
- Start your search at around X: 2030, Y: -1577 in the High Security Lockdown area. There’s a ramp nearby, jump up it and run onto the catwalks above. Ahead, you should be able to spot a computer console near a large round door. Run up to the door and use the console to enter the Incinerator Room. The Incinerator Room is small, but you’ll be taking fire damage while you’re there, so come prepared with healing. Run to the console and pick a code, the third option in the list — or it’s completely random and you’ll have to try them all.
- With the correct code selected, the flames will stop and the door will open to reveal the Datacron. To leave the area, continue on the path.
- After Patch 1.2, you have only ONE try. The correct code in the Incinerator Room is 326:3827. This is exactly the unit number of the maintenance hatch in the garbage room on Death Star.
- Yellow Matrix Shard (Republic/Empire)
- Network Security District – Maintenance District
- Before you begin, you’ll need a special item, collected while picking up the previous Datacron. Near the Cunning Datacron in the Incinerator Room, you’ll find an Old Prize Machine. Use it to collect the Slot Decoder. Begin your search in the area at the coordinates X: 1710, Y: 3090 where you’ll find the beginnings of a large stack of crates. Jump up these crates until you reach the top, where you’ll want to look for pipes running out from the wall. Get onto the pipes, and follow them until you reach another ledge with crates. Continue up into another small area, where you’ll need to turn left to find the machine. Use the Slot Decoder on the machine to get the Datacron.
