Collected all lore objects on corellia – but still one is missing: corellian blood lines
Any idea where I find that one?

Thanks for doing this… I already finished but it’s great for others
maybe the devs will see how much people like these achievements
and decide to fix the Beastermaster one too

Awesome Guide! I’m certainly gonna use it!
Hey, if there are any fellow Ebon Hawk players reading this, I’ve started a Global Channel channel for hunting codex entries and earning Achievements. The Codex Channel, please come join by typing /cjoin Codex.

The channel exists on both sides, imp and republic but I mostly play on the republic side.

Yo, you still have the channel up? I know it’s now Star Forge, but if you’re still playing and you have it up….

You missed one on Belsavis that is Republic only. The Infinite Empire is gotten from Completing the Sleeping Rakata mission.

I’m loving this and I’ve been working on it all day. So far the only issue I’ve run into is on Quesh. I’m trying to get Quesh Venom on the Imperial side. Does it really have the same requirement as Atmosphere of Quesh or did that get copied over?

Anyways, thank you very much for another excellent guide.

I already got this lore object before I started the guide so i can’t verify but from what I looked up it does to appear to have the same requirements. Is this not the case for you?

I already had the “Quesh Venom” one as well. That’s kind of why I got confused. I didn’t realize there were two that had quesh venom in their name. It probably is true.

nvm. I see I was getting confused between the map showing “Discovering Quesh Venom” and the section explaining how to get “Quesh Venom”. All was good once I saw the other pic. Thanks again Dulfy:)

Hi Dulfy, I think they’ve changed the requirements for Imperial War Strategy: Quagmires on Hoth. I only got it from completing the bonus series, not starting it.

Yeah, I can confirm this is the case (post 2.0) as well, as I had to complete the bonus series on Hoth before I got the unlock.

And otherwise, thanks for this. Would have been glad to help as I got this the first day it was available (when you were taking pictures of my Praxon Aether), but I guess you got it covered.

Now if they would only fix Beastmaster.

Acutually since there is no more bonus series anymore, now you just need to complete the mission “Revenge of the Bane Brigade” granted by Captain Graich in Dorn Base to gain this codex entry.

I think that you missed one shared Lore in the Dune Sea (Sand People), is on Motesta Oasis, where you do the Imperial quest “Thirst for Glory|”, Cord -2446,417

No, I am not missing any lore in the dune sea. Please make sure they are actually required for the achievement. Loremaster of Tatooine only have 4 lore objects and it is all covered in the guide

I abandoned the Corellian questlines eons ago, and picking up the quest again requires access to instances that are no longer available for my toons. As finishing off the Corellian lore items is all I have left, is there any way to reacquire the questlines, or do I need to level other toons just to get the Republic and Imperial lore objects?

I am not aware of any way to reacquire these quests once you have abandoned them. I am missing the World Razor one from Belsavis myself since it appears I abondoned the questline about 1.5 years ago hah. You can try contacting the CSR and see if they can help you with it.

Thank you so much, Dulfy for this site and all the information you’ve provided!

Wanted to let you know that the “list” you referred to under Quesh “Military Adrenals” (Republic) is no longer valid.

I decided to take my Level 55 back and get Quesh Lore Achievements and found on “Military Adrenals” I had to start the Quesh quest line beginning from “Republic Commando” NPC on Quesh: Republic Orbital Station.

Thanks for all your work Dulfy. I could not have the lore objects on Ilum without you! Of course, I did fall over, I mean find the “Deep Drillers” by myself, right in the middle of two others you pointed out…

I am afraid to be a pain to you, Dulfy, but I’m afraid all the awesome work you put into this guide hit a huge, nasty pothole. I know that you know closed their doors leaving a lot of broken links. This sucks…

Hi Dulfy. Thanks for the great work, but what about planet, which have been added with SoR and Ziost? 🙂 Thanks!

Maybe a stupid question, but under Exploration it says x/200, but the 4 Archivements net only 175. Anybody know what the missing 25 pts are?

Can’t finish Ord Mantell lore objects because it’s not giving me the quests – Rebublic Roulette and Buying Loyalty… ;((

When I enabled option -show exploration missions-, I was able to talk to Corporal Dregg and finished Republic Roulette. But there is no npc for H2 Buying loyalty.

I cannot obtain Sleeping Rakata daily quest to finish Belsavis. :/ In the outpost, if I try to click the terminal it says it appears to have been deactivated. Will try on various characters and try to finish any quest I see to see if it appears then. But thank you for the extensive guide, Dulfy!

Esh-Kha Culture isn’t lit up for me, when I click it nothing happens. It’s the only one I’m lacking on Belsavis. Republic, finished all story/class quests on Belsavis, etc. Did this change to Imp only? Any ideas?

Having problem locating the battle of ilum lore object, its not where your map says it is unless im missing something
