Additional information:

This Datacron is located on Taris, in the Abandoned Power Plant. Unlike most other Datacrons so far, this one REQUIRES two people in order to acquire it.

You can see it from here.

This Control Panel activates a burst of air that will launch your partner upwards, and (hopefully) onto the pipes you need to be on.

This works! I can see the Datacron, I am on the large pipe, and I can make my way…

To this small pipe right here. (A map view won’t help – because at this height, all you will see is the outside map).

Make your way down to the end of this pipe.

Drop down to the right-side platform. Don’t try jumping to the left one from the pipe.

Now on the platform, you can turn around and make a running jump to the other platform – a fairly easy jump.

And there we go – on the 2nd platform, with the Datacron within reach.

Additional information:

This one takes a lot of well placed jumps but it is not as hard as some (unless you have a fear of heights). There is actually a break in the floor you have to watch out for once you are really close to the datacron. Check out the screenshots below marked with warning.

To get to this datacron you will first have to climb this huge fallen beam.

Local map of the location of the fallen metal column

Global map of the location of the fallen metal column

Make sure you climb on one of the edges not the middle of the column.

Once at the top you will want to jump to the right.

Once you jump down you will want to keep to the right and walk over to that other beam/wall.

Just jump over the wall onto that perpendicular second beam.

At the end you will see an extruded beam, than nothing and an extruded beam from the other side. You need to jump across.

The other side feels safer NOT.

You will get to a big column and you need to walk around it onto a perpendicular beam. You get the first glimpse of the datacron from here.

What follows is a jump down onto that small gray beam. In this screenshot you can see the exact angle I took to make the jump. The first time I tried , not using this angle, I missed the jump and died.

“Safely” landed

Local map of where we’re at right now.

Just follow the general direction towards the holocron and you will have to make one more small jump over the chasm. Not as terrifying as the previous one.

Once across this section go left.

WARNING There is a small break in the floor that might crush your dreams of getting that datacron.

Good things come to those that persist.

Additional information:

You should really be good at jumping if you want this datacron to be an easy one to get to. The datacron is located inside the Republic Mines, which are the lower level of the Abandoned Pirate Cave. The Entrance into the cave is at -766,1192

You need to get to the elevator at the end of the cave which will take you down below to the Republic mines.

Once you get down, if you are a lowly level like I was or don’t want to fight, you can go behind the crates to avoid a lot of mobs.

You can see the datacron in the distance.

To get to it you need to jump onto this bulldozer.

From the crates onto these pipes.

From the pipes onto this platform with crates.

Jump on top of the crates on the platform to make the next jump onto these containers. (there’s a small ledge there). I suspect you can get onto the container using the pipe on the left but I never tried it.

Once on the container ledge you can actually jump onto the small part of the container to make it on top of the container itself.

Once on top of the container jump onto the top of the crates. You must have sprint on and stealth off to make the jump

Once you make that jump you will have to jump onto that pipe on the left. The pipe is a narrow target and it is easy to miss and fall …

Once on the pipe take the time to high-five yourself. You deserve it.

Just jump across the rest of the platforms and containers. Nothing spectacular here to report. Just make sure sprint is on and stealth is off.

The final jump onto the datacron platform should be timed nicely. You do not want to jump off of the very edge, but rather a bit sooner.

My precious.

    Chech the Green Matrix Shard datacron, that datacron is for Republicans and Imperials because there is no shard datacron specific for imperials on this planet and I did this datacron also as imperial.
