Alderaan Datacrons


Aim +4


X: 1107, Y: 80

Additional information:

This datacron is on an island that you can get to only via a small “damaged lift” (starts at 1091, -10).

There is additional and much simpler route to the Aim +4 datacron without the Lift. You can jumped up from the rocks on the SE side of the island.


Your hike to the damaged lift begins via this small snowy path.

Local map of the start of the small path.

Globbal map of the start of the small path.

Following the path will get you to this platform

You can see the damaged lift at the bottom here. The island below is where you want to get.

Local map of where the damaged lift’s platform is.

Global map of where the damaged lift’s platform is.

You need to wait for the damaged lift to arrive (it is quite slow and makes a pause at the bottom)

I jumped onto the lift very, very carefuly

Datacron is in sight. Only thing left to do is wait.

ANOTHER ROUTE without the Lift

Just jump on the rocks.

Additional information:

There are two ways to get this datacron. One involves buying an item from a vendor for 10.000 credits and other invloves skill with jumping.

Use the item route

You will need to buy a Magnetically Guided Grappling System (MGGS) at a vendor located at 1867, 1088 (south of Tarlarn Outpost). Next to the datacron there is a blue glowing Magnetic Stabilizer. Use your MGGS and hook onto the Magnetic Stabilizer to slide over to the datacron platform.

You need to buy Magnetically Guided Grappling System (MGGS) that is 10.000 at the time of this guide being written. (game version 1.0.1). There is also another item for another datacron you can buy here.

The datacron is located on the Lerantha Dam. Nice vista shot of the datacron’s location.

You need to have this item in your inventory.

You see that square extrusion with a blue circle glow in the middle? Hover with your mouse over it and you can see it is usable.

Once you “use” the square at the datacron you will grapple onto it and be pulled towards it.

Once at the datacron just jump to unhook.

Additional information:

You need to get a Red Detonite Actuator at a vendor south of Tarlarn Outpost (1869, 1091). There is a cave (entrance at 2373, 2449) you need to go through (group area) to get to the datacron. The datacron itself is behind a cave wall. You will see a red light flashing and that is where you use the purchased item to blow the wall and expose the datacron.


To get this datacron you will have to purchase the item Red Detonite Actuator at a vendor south of Tarlarn Outpost (1869, 1091).

The item costs 2000 credits as of patch 1.0.1 and only one in your group needs to have it.

Entrance to the cave

The area is full of level 40 elites. Not a pleasant place for my lowly lvl 25 assassin, but the Spy goes where you want him to go.

Once you get to the datacron location there is a wall guarded by two lvl 40 elites that has a Blast Pack on it. You can activate this blast pack if you have the item from the aforementioned vendor in your inventory.

As soon I managed to blast open the wall I died from the elites. I had a 10 minute cooldown on my medical probe and the wall closed on me so I couldn’t get to the datacron 🙁 In a few levels though.

    Just a general comment on the list of datacrons page, as there is no commenting there.
    I think you shuold list the name and number of the datacron. So peopel can compare vs their list of Codex to find out which ones they are missing. There is room for it 😉

      Great idea! 🙂

    For Endurance 3, one way that can help is queuing for warzones, then making your next “suicide sprint” as it queues and accepting it before you die. Also helps reset your probe cd

    • Comment by Nick made on April 15, 2012 at 6:03 pm

      This is quite possibly the sneakiest most awesome method I’ve come across.

      • Comment by Neptuno made on May 23, 2012 at 2:01 am

        lol, ty. it kind of happened on accident with a long queue forgotten.

        another thought on Presence +3:
        if you go down into the water, its very visible on the left as you pass under the foundation of the bridgework high above.

  3. Comment by Overlord made on March 29, 2012 at 12:22 am

    For that first datacron Aim +4. I would like to point out that getting on that lift isnt fully needed. I just jumped up from the rocks on the side of the island where the lift goes over.

    • Comment by Kuthax made on June 30, 2015 at 4:42 am

      The jumping way is rather picky about where you must be standing but it’s totally doable.

  4. Comment by Illusmar made on March 29, 2012 at 11:00 am

    Strenght on Alderaan? Just use the ladder. It is there for a reason 🙂

  5. Comment by Skunkmeister made on March 29, 2012 at 11:48 am

    You dont even have to be a decent jumper to get the str datacron. Use your mount and its cake

  6. Comment by Skunkmeister made on March 29, 2012 at 12:20 pm

    Aim datacron. Start at the SE corner of the small island, 1127, 166. Jump up the rock, then continue to jump up and diagonal to the ne to get to the area that has the datacron.

  7. Comment by Pastie made on April 2, 2012 at 2:06 pm

    How about showing a map for each world with all the datacrons for that world marked on it so that we can plan a route, as it is we have to move the mouse over the map to try and find each one and that is just the location of the datacron and not where the path to it starts. This would help a lot of players who end up having to zig-zag across the map getting each one.

  8. Comment by Leng made on April 6, 2012 at 9:05 am

    For those still having trouble with the willpower datacron, I could not get my type 3 bounty hunter through using any of the solo suggestions. However, set autorun against the crack and then select “send companion to sell trash” popped me straight through .

  9. Comment by Triggerboy made on April 9, 2012 at 11:56 am

    You can make it to the Aim+4 without the Lift. At the opposite side of the isle you can climb the wall.. its not that easy but much more easy then this frustrating lift-jump

  10. Comment by bigblackbubbaprisonbuddy made on April 10, 2012 at 8:48 pm

    the easy way to get on the lift is to take sprint off and go to the other side, its closer to the landing, easiest jump i ever made, aim for the big square on the center of the lift

    strengt was bugged for me, had to jump, could not use the grapple thingie. Used it and got teleported back to where i was standing.

  12. Comment by Skits made on April 14, 2012 at 9:19 am

    Is it just me, or is the ladder for the Strength datacron no longer working after the latest patch? 🙁

    • Comment by nitefightr69 made on April 15, 2012 at 3:57 am

      Not able to get up the ladder after the update.

      • Comment by Mr.Trick made on June 15, 2012 at 11:27 am

        It was surely top priority to fix this. Ways to get around bugs in the game must immediately removed!!

    Update for the data cron on alderman:
    When getting the streagth datacron you can no longer jump up the ladder. You must purchase the mggs now.

    • Comment by Jen made on April 21, 2012 at 8:53 pm

      I can confirm this

  14. Comment by Nemo made on April 15, 2012 at 4:17 pm

    There is an easier way to get the aim datacron, go to the small island by the lake, then you can jump on a series of rocks from 1126/98/166 -just southeast of the island up to the platform where the lift would arrive.
    I can provide a couple screenshots but looks like I can’t attach them from here 🙂

    • Comment by david coll made on April 29, 2013 at 5:25 pm

      Lift appears to be disabled at this time. Rocks, with difficulty, is the only way I did it.

  15. Comment by Jakk Frost made on April 15, 2012 at 6:43 pm

    Need the MGGS for a couple of other datacrons, (including +10 to all), so it never hurt to get it anyways.

  16. Comment by Kdog made on April 17, 2012 at 5:36 am

    for whatever reason- perhaps video card the ladder isnt working- but Im republic so I cant get the MGGS in that Imp town… the question is… Where else can I find a MGGS?

    • Comment by Jen made on April 21, 2012 at 8:51 pm

      The MGGS is not in an imperial held area. It’s actually just south of an Imp base, all alone. You should be able to go there and get the MGGS no problem (as long as no Imps are around)

  17. Comment by mobious made on April 18, 2012 at 11:53 am

    You dont need to use the lift to get this datacron. on the backside of this island you can jump your way up using your speeder.

  18. Comment by Jen made on April 21, 2012 at 8:50 pm

    as of at least patch 1.2, the ladder for the Strength+4 datacron no longer works.
    You MUST buy the MGGS.

  19. Comment by Evgen88 made on April 22, 2012 at 3:56 am

    A comment for the whole Datacron section
    The listing page should say the Galactic History number. If you are only missing one or 2 on a planet that would really help figure out which one.
    Great reference though!

  20. Comment by Nidhogen made on April 25, 2012 at 7:59 pm

    I’d like to confirm Overlord about the Aim +4 not too hard to jump up to from lake

  21. Comment by Syce made on April 26, 2012 at 4:34 am

    one tip: for the Strength Datacron, i highly suggest buying the Magnetically Guided Grappling System (MGGS) because you will need it for a datacron of Coreilla so might as well get it now.

  22. Comment by angelturbo made on April 26, 2012 at 7:05 pm

    I guess this is another location for an Unusual Egg nest? I only know of 2 places, for me this will make a third.

      204 is Z coordinate not Y .

  25. Comment by teldor made on May 8, 2012 at 12:59 am

    I was able to speeder jump up the back part of the island for the +4. Took alot of effort but I used the landspeeder first then half way up switched to xeno.

  26. Comment by Doug made on May 11, 2012 at 2:10 am

    For strength datacron on the dam on Alderaan: jumping on the ladder does NOT let you climb it. I tried MANY times on two characters. Also, will someone PLEASE correct “than” to “then?” Whoever wrote these articles apparently doesn’t speak English as their first language.

    • Comment by Christian made on May 12, 2012 at 9:06 am

      The jumping technique no longer applies after 1.2, they fixed it so you’re forced to buy that part.

  27. Comment by Vilhelm made on May 13, 2012 at 3:33 pm

    Looks like they fixed the jumping route on the strength datacron.

  28. Comment by Neptuno made on May 23, 2012 at 2:05 am

    Strength +4 appears to need the grapple (which didn’t even work for a while) as you can no longer jump up the ladder as far as i can tell

  29. Comment by Brustvergrößerung günstig made on June 14, 2012 at 5:59 pm

    Hello, yup this paragraph is truly good and I have learned lot of

  30. Comment by D'Awg made on July 14, 2012 at 11:20 pm

    After 1.3, the Strength datacron requires the MGGS.
    You can no longer use the ladder.

  31. Comment by Winniebago made on July 15, 2012 at 10:05 am

    After you have got the strength +4 you can run along the dam and pull youself up to another ledge in the sameway as getting the datacron – there is a small chest on the ledge containing a Alderon Commendation and random drop. 2131,379 you can see both ledges from either ledge.

  32. Comment by xkizdit made on August 7, 2012 at 6:28 pm

    Seems as though most of these require you to either be near or get something from around “The Juran Mountains” region of Alderaan. I would suggest starting there and picking up the items before heading out.

  33. Comment by thejynxed made on September 10, 2012 at 3:17 am

    As of 1.3.6, it appears you can no longer jump up the rocks on the back for the Aim datacron – the surfaces are more angled and you slide back down.

    This was not the case prior to the patch of September 2012, when you could still do it.

    • Comment by Nb made on October 5, 2012 at 5:49 am

    Tarlarn Outpost is an Imperial zone. Is there a republic side vendor who has the item?

  35. Comment by Thaladar made on December 14, 2012 at 9:23 pm

    For Endurance +3 Datacron, you do NOT need the Red Detonite Actuator. I just walked right up in the cave and got it.

    • Comment by Crystalgirl made on February 15, 2013 at 3:50 pm

      i did it today and this was not the case, i needed the detonator.

  36. Comment by Crystalgirl made on February 15, 2013 at 3:50 pm

    once you finish with the MGGS you can take it back to the vendor and get a full refund.

  37. Comment by GamerIncognito made on April 10, 2013 at 3:16 am

    So my Codex is telling me there are 7 datacroms on Alderaan. Yet there are only 5 listed here. Are there more then 1 at some of these locations, like at the sand crawler on Tatooine?

    • Comment by Mikro SWTOR Spy made on April 10, 2013 at 7:25 am

      Since the release of the Makeb expansion they added 2 new datacrons to Makeb, but for whatever strange reason they assigned them to Alderaan in the codex. It is a bug.

      • Comment by Jean-Pierre du Bois made on May 27, 2013 at 11:01 pm

        Is there even another place you cam use it or is it just to get this one Datacron I think it is B.S. to buy equipment we are going to use once there should be a battle for the grappling hook not just go up and buy it from Apooh may be you can buy some Duff beer that will raise your number one ability.

        • Comment by Saracin made on June 2, 2013 at 7:13 am

          The MGGS has a use on the Fleet to get the +10 to All Stats Datacron and also I think one of the datacrons on Corellia.

  38. Comment by DH made on January 27, 2014 at 4:57 pm

    There is an hour refund for Magnetically Guided Grappling System (MGGS) so I used it then returned it. Got the full refund for 12,500! 🙂

    • Comment by Rebecca Coles made on April 26, 2014 at 2:37 pm

      Having hard time even getting to outskirts of heroic zone let alone making it though zone to cave entrance for endurance +3 on Alderaan. other problem at the time when I was playing Moines wanted to group for this datacron and i can’t solo it 🙁

  39. Comment by Matt made on December 27, 2014 at 10:14 pm

    How about, not sticking a flipping watermark over the fucking point, it’s wound me right up.

  40. Comment by Kuthax made on June 30, 2015 at 5:01 am

    For the Aim, jumping on the southeast corner is doable just picky as hell about where to stand. For the Presence the Thranta is also the Codex and seems to be really the only way to it.

  41. Comment by Kirstyn made on September 4, 2015 at 3:37 pm

    Look u monkeys: next time write coordinates for that f.. vendor well, bcs u wrote FALSE ones, and bring me back lost credits spent for guarding droid at outpost bolym. IDIOTS

    • Comment by Bacon made on October 28, 2015 at 7:27 am

      Coordinates on your map are bugged and have been since Beta. The coordinates for your cursor are not the same as for your character. Cursor coordinates are incorrect. Next time use the map to locate rather than blindly following coordinates.
      Would you follow the GPS in your car if it told you to driver over a cliff? No, I think not. The coordinates are correct, if you look at the right ones.

  42. Comment by Minthy made on April 10, 2016 at 4:46 pm

    Not sure if it’s just me but detonating it does not remove the boulder, It just explodes and nada.

  43. Comment by HayleyGeek made on January 8, 2021 at 3:25 am

    Aim datacron on the island, can confirm that today you do not need to jump the lift.

    Standing at x: 1125 y:86 Z:166, there is a sloped piece of rock, do a little run up to it, your arrow on the mini map will be pointing south west and at the bottom south east of the island, Run up to the tip of that slope. Climb up as far as you can go. Now face the north east at coords x:1123 y: 92 Z: 174, you will see an additional ledge just ahead, run up and jump to it. The datacron etc is below. Takes a few attempts, but no travelling back if you miss the lift.
