SWTOR Datacron's

SWTOR (Star Wars The Old Republic) has datacrons which are fun in a PiA way to get as they add to your stats, and you can make a relic which is useful.

Here are different links to them. is my favorite for the walk-thrus.  I waited until 50 to start going back and getting them, as I was always thrilled to stumble across them out in the world.

I lost the thread on the datacron locations, so starting one with a variety of links.

Datacron - mixing shards:

>>Matrix Cubes function as relic-type items, and are equipped as a part of the player's gear that grants a passive stat boost. Depending on the color combination, the Matrix Cube will give a different statistic boost and will also vary in level requirement. The level requirement has no relation to the current level of the player assembling the cube, but rather the colors of the three shards. There are four tiers of cubes at levels 15, 24, 32, 50 [3]. Though it's not always the case, usually the more of a single color shard in a cube the higher level it is. Therefore a cube made with Red, Blue, and Yellow, some of the first colors acquirable, you will have a very low-level cube.

TOR World Boss Tour

World Boss Tour

The guild I’m in Hammerfist Clan’s (Star Wars The Old Republic ) TOR Republic team does a weekly World Boss Tour for fun on Wednesdays.  The purple drops are great as they're BoE, so those with alts can pass the gear along versus everything being BoP and useless to the higher levels.  It's great fun having 15-20+ of us in vent at one time, running through the different planets.  

We start at Coruscant (SD-0) if we have enough low level players that need/want it.  

Otherwise we start at Taris (Subject Alpha), proceed to Tatooine (Trapjaw), Nar Shaddaa (Battledroid R4-GL), Alderaan (, Quesh (Rogue Cartel Droid) and the two on Hoth (Snowblind and Gargath). 

Gargath on Hoth has eluded us, and with the two hour timer (approximately) for the World Bosses, you never know if they were recently killed or will respawn shortly. 

Nar Shaddaa fight Battledroid R4-GL

Quesh fight Rogue Cartel Droid

 We've been lucky to get a bit of world PvP in on Quesh, Alderaan and Tat a few times which many of us enjoy and annoy the few anti-pvers as they get flagged too!

Some of the World Boss fights are a hike for lower level players that do not have the taxi/speeder points, and we've had a few running as a guild to pick those up for people.  It's all fun as it's an enjoyable guild event that is always well attended.

We’re working on the Belsavis boss, Primal Destroyer, in the next couple of weeks now that we have enough 50’s to make up the required group.
