Taris Datacron Locations

The Sinking City – Ruins of Dynamet General (Emergency Exit) – +4 Willpower

  1. Start in the Ruins of Dynamet General, you’ll need to find the Emergency Exit.
  2. In the large room full of Rakghouls, enter the lower part and search near the right staircase for some crates. Jump over the crates to find a door into the Emergency Exit.
  3. Follow the path through the exit all the way around to find the Datacron.

Republic Resettlement Zone – +4 Aim

  1. Find this Datacron just east of the Skull Eater, itself in the central northern section of the Resettlement Zone. Start at X: -1364 Y:-197 to find a ledge along a wall, follow it to a walkway.
  2. Skip that walkway, jump up and continue on the ledge until you reach a metallic platform. Below you’ll be able to find another crumpled metal platform to jump down onto.
  3. On this ruined metal platform, it splits down two paths. Follow the narrow left path, until reaching a structure to jump onto.
  4. Look for more pipes below, and jump down onto them, moving right until finding yet another ledge to jump to. From this ledge, continue following it until you can see a structure will an hole in the roof below.
  5. Jump to the structure, drop through the roof, and you’ll finally have this Datacron.

The Tularan Marsh – Derelict Swoop Track – +4 Cunning

  1. Start at Brejik’s Run Outpost, or east of Camp Lytle. This Datacron involves lots of jumps from pipes and platforms.
  2. Look for a big orange pipe behind an enemy base, then look for a brown-ish path, then jump to a larger grey platform.
  3. Follow the gray platform until you can find a second gray pathway near an enormous tree. Continue until you see a ledge, angled so you can nudge yourself up. Go around another edge right, and you’ll finally spot that Datacron.

Transport Station 5 – +4 Strength

  1. In the northernmost square room you’ll find this Datacron in the northeast corner.
  2. Look north of the Remote Field Lab (Republic Phase), and look for a hill near a flat ruined building. Climb the hill, fighting the Rakghouls and get to the roof of the structure.
  3. Look for a pipe to jump onto, follow the ramp upward, and you’ll find the Datacron.

Abandoned Power Plant – Green Matrix Shard

  1. You’ll need two players to find this Datacron in the Abandoned Power Plant. Enter the lower levels, you’ll find the Datacron itself above in the pipes, around the northeastern corner of the large split room with two ramps.
  2. Inside, look for a switch and a platform. Activate the control panel while one player stands on the platform to shoot him or her up into the pipes above.
  3. While in the pipes, move right until you can hop down to another pipe below. Follow the pipe until you reach a platform, jump down to it, then jump to the adjoining platform to find the Datacron.

Could use some clarification on the hospital datacron – terms like right and left don’t mean too much without a reference point as to which direction you should be looking, and a coordinate reference to the “large room full of rakghouls” would also be welcome.

(In the interest of providing said clarification by the way, the coordinates for the crates mentioned are x=-363, y=-219. You have to be in the research level, which is beneath the main hospital and can be entered through a large pipe fragment under the main hospital floor. It’s coordinates are -445, -352.

The one in the Hospital is Republic only, since the entrance to the underground is for an Imperial Agent on the Empire side

Few things wrong here, first off some of those stats are not reflecting what they actualy give you. The +4 Aim is instead an Endurance datacron. The Transport Station is a Presence datacron. Not sure quite what I’m suppose to do still for the Willpower datacron, do I have to bring an Imperial Agent on that quest phase so that I can get inside the phase at -445,-352?

Hey Niki,

Don’t worry about getting up ontop of the wall ledge, just follow the ledge and you’ll eventually reach a catwalk and another wall that you can follow left that leads to a grated metal floor. From there, you should be good to continue following the instructions above.
