In this guide, we provide you with maps and complete directions to each of the datacrons hidden throughout Coruscant in The Old Republic (be sure to check out our Tython Guide too). Datacrons are ancient devices that will provide you with permanent stat boosts, or matrix shards that can be combined to create items for your 'relic' equipment slots. On Coruscant, there are a total of 4 stat boosts, and 1 matrix shard - complete details on how to find each can be found below.
Presence + 2
The first Datacron you’ll run across on Coruscant is located in the Old Galactic Market district, just past the Concourse staging point. After crossing the bridge covered with guild thugs take the ramp to your left. At the top and to your immediate right will be a lift that will take you up onto the platform containing the Datacron.
Be on your guard though, there is an elite mob by the name of “Abiss Sol’Oras”, so be ready for a fight.
The Endurance Datacron can be found in Black Sun Territory within an area called Graffiti Square. As you enter Graffiti Square from the north you should notice a large pile of shipping crates and smaller boxes to the right. To the rear of the boxes you can use some of the smaller debris to make your way to the top of the pile. After reaching the top, jump over to the nearby balcony (long platform with railing) and follow it until you come across a pipe. Use this pipe to cross over to the adjacent balcony, to your left will be another pipe you can drop onto that will lead you onto a neon sign. Jump off the end of the sign and on to the final ledge, there you will find your green Datacron.
Justicar Territory is where the third Coruscant Datacron can be found. More specifically the Justicar Shipping Dock sub area around the top centre of the Justicar Territory map. Between the two main paths entering the area are some golden brown shipping crates; jump your way to the top and then onto the nearby pipe. Once on the pipes simply follow them up to their conclusion, a platform containing the Datacron.
Yellow Matrix Shard
This Matrix Shard is located in The Works, an area you have to traverse on your way to the Jedi Temple. Although the Datacron itself is located in the west, the beginning of the path that will get you there is in the most north easterly passage. You can get to the passage by travelling south through the primary junction room, at the end will be a ramp that circles back around east towards the passage. After fighting your way through various types of Cythons, and before the passage takes a left hand turn, you’ll find some boxes against the wall that lead up to a pipe. Follow the pipe along the wall and it will lead you back over the primary junction room. Here you’ll find a fork in the road; take the pipe leading left to the opposite wall and follow that series of pipes. These will lead you along the left hand wall and up to a couple of platforms; the second one holds the Datacron.
Remember to take your time as it’s a long walk back to the start, and odds are you’ll be falling into a group of enemies.
Upon first entering the Jedi Temple Ruins look right for the huge tipped over column serving as a ramp to the upper level. After climbing the pillar hang a left and follow the narrow ledge until you come across a meditating Dark Sith by the name of “Anev Xydes”. The Datacron can be found to the right of him, perched at the end of an extended piece of wall jutting out from the ledge.
