  • Light aim seems to be a common drop? cause there is and abundant stock in tofd server GTM, being so very, very cheap to buy. And looks nice for all purposes.

    • memem

      it’s random i got 3 so far from random drop, and no one in 4-5 hc i have done

  • Darth Rassilon

    Dulfy, thank you for putting this list together

  • gog

    Been looking for a list like this, thanks! If there’s a possibility to add which quests that have a boss in them, like Hunger of the Vrblthers, it would be even greater as it seems like those bosses have a close to 100% drop rate on the datacrons. Did that one and Blood and Sand and got a datacron each time.

    • Sean

      The elevated drop rate appears to be for champions that are behind an instance ‘door’; I didn’t get a single decoration from any champions that were in ‘open areas — the three nekghouls in the heroic area on Taris for ‘Knight Fall’, the champions in the heroic area on Nar Shaddaa for ‘Mandalorian Rage’, etc. Additionally, the end boss for ‘Mandalorian Rage’, who appears when you destroy their relic, drops a mission token, not loot, so he likely won’t drop a decoration (he didn’t for me).

      • gog

        Yeah, it seems to be the end bosses in instances mainly. The champion vrblthers doesn’t drop any in “Hunger of the Vrblthers”, however the boss that you summon at the end does, not 100% sure that one in instanced though. Was the same on Voss, but that planet has a lot of bosses at the end, think I got 4 datacrons from the imperial quest in the Nightmare lands as an example.

  • Johnny Wright

    So do the datacron decoration drops relate to the datacron rack decoration, is that tied to the old datacron achievement?

    • The datacron rack is tied to datacron achievement, the individual datacrons are not

    • Rikal

      The racks of 5 comes from the old achievements as far as I can tell. The new ones appear to be individual decorations with one datacron each (at least the ones I’ve gotten so far are).

  • Audemus

    I’ve found several datacrons inside chests around the HEROIC areas as well. I’m not sure if they can be found in all lockboxes on the planet, but they definitely drop in HEROIC areas.

    • Infernus

      Good info…thanks

  • Vodorlo

    Man, Dulfy… don’t like leaving anyone in the dark with anything, do you?

    Great work, as usual!

  • Dan Barr

    I looted 4 from just leveling a character on Hoth, I didn’t do any of the heroics, got them from normal mobs and some strong. I got one on Voss too so far from a normal as well. I didn’t get any on Belsavis though.

  • Kero

    I know a spot for Quesh for the Imperial side

  • Mac

    On Voss Empire, the mission “Cleansing the Corrupted” is your best bet. I got a total of 6 from running the weekly on Voss, 4 of them came from that one mission.

    • Sean

      ‘Total Elimination’ on Taris got me two; it seems as if the drop rate is fairly high for any champion-level mob inside an instanced mission; I’ve received one from an elite (out of approximately 200) and seven from champions (out of about twelve), and have not yet received a decoration from any champion _not_ inside an instance — I killed the named champion over in the bonus area of Nar Shaddaa four times as a test, and the champion Geonosian near the Sarlacc on Tatooine twice, as well, without getting a decoration. Every time I defeated a champion inside an instance and didn’t get a decoration, I got another blue-grade drop, which strongly suggests that they’re in that loot table for the RNG to pick up.

    • irongut

      I ran all the Republic heroics on Voss and all I got was… not even a lousy T shirt. :'( Wheras on Nar Shadda and Tatooine just running one heroic was enough for multiple drops.

  • Winto

    I must disagree…
    You can loot datacron on ANY strong (or higher) mob. Not only heroics 😉

    • Read it again – The bosses inside each Heroic mission and the lockboxes that are granted as rewards have a HIGH CHANCE to drop the datacron decorations.

      • Magsel

        HIGH chance my hiney :p 5 crons out of 9 heroics4 and 2 heriocs2 🙁

        • SpideyBry

          You got 5 datacrons out of 11 heroics. That’s 45.5% drop rate. What would your term for that be, Magsel?

  • Rikal

    Imperial Belsavis, Ava Seldin gives [Heroic 2+ “A Rock and a Hard Place”]. And many thanks dulfy, great resource as always!

    • Oops, fixed ty

      • Rikal

        You are most welcome

  • Meta Ray Mek

    Thank you for this list: I have a mighty need for these decorations, so this gives me much needed help in tracking them down!

  • Dread

    So where does the Light Cunning datacron drop on Quesh?

    • Vincera

      I had one drop from Foreman Telleon so I presume it could be any Champion mob. Same thing happened to me on Ilum too.

  • darkfather

    I would like to add for your info Dulfy that the Dark Datacron (Aim) drops in False Emperor when you loot the chest at the end after killing Malgus. I got it in one of the blue random roll boxes after looting the chest (10 min ago). I farmed Ilum Heroic and Heroic area for over an hour and it never dropped. So, It seems False Emperor is one way to get it if you are having on luck that way.

  • Pyre

    It is worth mentioning the GSI heroic missions will NOT contribute to your conquest. I figured I might as well dust off the GSI terminal and grab the lot of them while farming heroics on alderaan, and the assassin quest did not give conquest. (and of course did not give any datacrons)

  • ODST_Parker

    Is there a good way to get the Light Cunning Datacron decoration from Quesh, for Republic? To my knowledge, there are no heroic quests, so does it just come down to a random massacre of anything that moves until you find one?

    • Hachiman

      I have been grinding Quesh like mad for the last 4 hours, and havent had any luck on getting the “Light Datacron (Cunning)”, and there arnt any for sale on the market either. 🙁

      • Vodorlo

        If they’re aren’t any on sale, it’s a safe bet Quesh is bugged, or a PITA.

      • Fractal_Eye

        I finally came across a Light Datacron (Cunning) on Quesh by simply killing stuff for about 2 hours. It is possible, but not as easy as the others because of the absence of Heroics on Quesh.

        (That said, though, Belsavis’ Light Endurance gave me more trouble than the Quesh one did. I did about 15 heroics over 2 days before I got that one. So, I guess all I can say is keep at it and good luck!)

        • Fractal_Eye

          Sorry, edit to add that I play on The Shadowlands servers, for what it’s worth.

      • Ethior

        I did a datacron run on Quesh and around the Endurance we fought some mobs. I think a Lobel dropped the datacron for me. Might just been lucky as I think it was a normal mob

      • Yaki

        Killed the first gold I saw, right off the first base and got the datacron.

    • Arby

      There are 3 or 4 bosses spread out around the planet, wish I could give you their names and locations but I can’t remember. I used to farm them long ago for orange/purple gear, they would probably be the best bet for dropping the datacron. As I remember they were all on short (5-10 min) respawn timers.

    • Sunko

      The best thing to do is buy the blue boxes from the vendor (planetary comms) and you have a better chance of getting them.

  • Jakubas

    Kinda offtopic but what achievment awards the Voss Shrine? I was unable to find it anywhere.

    • Jha

      Voss reputation vendor, need top tier reputation & 1 mk2 universal prefab.

      • Settesh

        Thats the Ancient Voss Sarcophagus.. not the Shrine

  • Etahn

    I managed to get the Dark Datacron Presence during the Sith Warrior Class quest “Protect Vowrawn”, on Corellia, when I killed the Sith Elite there

  • Arby

    I picked up the Dark Endurance datacron somehow, somewhere on Makeb during a very fast Staged Weekly run. I don’t know if it came from one of the boss-type mobs that are mandatory kills or if it was just off a trash mob, but I definitely didn’t do any heroics and probably only killed 20-30 trash mobs and maybe 5 silver/golds in the whole time. May have a world drop chance and I just got lucky, don’t know.
    The market is so flooded with these things already it’s hardly worth leaving the stronghold to farm them when you can buy most of them for next to no credits at all.

  • Darkojin

    Fix for Alderaan Imperial Heroics. You have 1 and 2 backwards. Lanar is over to the West near House Cortess, Droid Reposession is over by the Dam.

  • idnewton

    This guide is great for us lazy bums who don’t have the Galactic Hero achievement yet.

    • Arby

      Go figure, I just did a bunch a few weeks ago to get the achievement myself. If I would have only waited…. two birds, one stone. But tbh, I’m grinding 2 lowbies now and these things seem like they’re falling out of the sky and I’m not even doing heroics.

  • Styrka

    Just to confirm you don’t need to do anything before hand other than complete the heroics for chance of the datacron drop? Done quite a few and no drops just crappy armor pieces

    • Stanley White

      that’s all you do is the quest and choose the lock box for the reward and the datacron is in there.

    • Jonathan Parker

      It’s fairly random, or so it seems. I got one almost instantly when I started the first heroic on Taris, and then I went to Alderaan and got nothing after every single heroic. The only one I have left to get now (I’m only getting the “light” ones at the moment) is from Quesh, which is the toughest one to get due to the lack of heroics. It all comes down to a massacre of anything that moves, for pretty much every planet. Heroic mission enemies just seem to have a better chance of dropping them. I haven’t gotten one from a heroic lock box yet, only loot drops.

  • alaurin101

    I don’t know if this has been mentioned or not, but I got the Dark datacron-willpower twice just doing regular missions on Belsavis. They dropped off of regular mobs on two different days. I have no idea if the others drop like that or not, but I figured I’d let people know.

      The datacron decorations appear to be in the loot table for Prototype-quality drops, so if you see a blue-grade loot indicator on a defeated mob, there’s a chance you’ll get a datacron. The chance is higher as the grade of mob goes up, and the named Champions in heroic missions appear to _always_ have a blue drop, although that can get you a datacron, a Prototype-quality item, or an orange item. They just have a much higher drop rate for the datacrons than any other mob, because they’re already rolling on a prototype-or-better loot table.

  • Jamo

    Can I confirm if these are just cosmetic drops, or are they dropping actual datacrons that add to your stats like the old datacrons you went hunting for in hidden places? ie an endurance Datacron adds to your total HP?

    • Just cosmetic drops

      • Jamo

        Thanks Dulfy, thought that was the case. Im not interested in the whole flagship thing so was keen not to waste time on these.

  • Oliver Röppnack

    Corellia Datacron can be looted quite easily from “Prototype Rk-4Sentinel” in Labor Valley

    • Matt Man

      empire or republic

    • Koen

      not so easily, 3 kills no drops sofar 🙂

  • espiegle

    Took me several days but I got all of the light and dark datacron’s. was fun to re-visit all those heroics.

  • Sean

    Fix for Imperial Balmorra: You missed [Area 4] Assembly Line and [Area 4] Research & Development, both in the Okara Droid Factory.

    • Sivis

      Dulfy hasn’t missed them. This guides heroics only and the lockboxes/champs that came along with them.

  • Matthew Cox


    Light Datacron Willpower
    1 and 2 quests markers are backwards I believe.

    • Chad Cloman

      Yes, quest #1 and #2 are switched between the map and the table. Also, quest #2, [HEROIC 4] The Lanar Question, is level 28.

  • Seth Kamins

    I’m very confused. What if you have already finished all of the heroics?

    • Heroics are daily repeatable

      • Seth Kamins

        I looked for them on Balmora and couldnt find them. Ill take another peak. Thanks D.

    • Hattina

      They all reset every 24 hours

  • Gancento

    I did NOT do ANY heroics, but still I got those decorations, guess how, dulfy?

  • TJWoo

    Some of the heroics have planet quest/bonus series prerequisites. Sucks to get to an oupost and find that out.

    • Yup, I tend to mark them with a *. Not sure if I catched them all though

      • TJWoo

        [HEROIC 4] The Mandalorian Terror has some kind of pre-req.

        • Caligari

          The prereq for [HEROIC 4] Hit’em Where They Live is given out by Sneed (sp?) standing close by. Do his one quick mission and then you can talk to Cheed. I still haven’t found out what unlocks [HEROIC 4] The Mandalorian Terror, tough 🙁

          • TJWoo

            Pretty sure Sneed didn’t unlock Hit’em for me. Doing the first mission of bonus series (picked up just off the planet shuttle when you land) did it for me.

    • Arby

      why would you have not done the planet mission first? How the hell did you grind your toon?

      • TJWoo

        I have 8 55s. KDY runs almost exclusively for 3 of them and didn’t touch planet quests. They were okay the first time…not so much after that.

      • christine0984

        if you level too fast doing FP, warzones, or During the double xp weekends, you can skip the planet quests alltogether. i know i have on a few toons.

  • You Know Who

    To clarify Dulfy’s list here…. MOST all of these are REPUBLIC heroics.

  • claude1864

    I know there are no heroics on Quesh but! The lights side cunning drops there. I got mine from an ornate box from the equipments comm vendor impside

    • Arby

      I recommend just killing everything that gets in front of you. I was killing in the families stronghold area near the north end of the map and decide to move locations and just randomly attacked a cat thing standing in the middle of a field and viola’

    • christine0984

      I got mine off of the mobs at the very bottom right side of the map. I have heard others get it from there too

    • Magsel

      Confirmed! My 3rd Ornate Prototype Storage Box (the blue one) contained [Light Datacron (Cunning)]. Strange however I bought this on my Merc from the Empire vendor “Qurrom” on Quesh. Well done BW :p

    • Pinello

      Hi! After spending one day on Quesh slaught….. …, I mean, bringing peace and order to the planet, I got one of the from a Sith Commander in Broga’s Palace. Before leaving the planet, I also bought three ornate boxes (those from 10 comms each) and got another one.

  • Yoshua

    Just had one drop from a Resistance Assault Trooper in the Balmorra Firestar mission. Strength Light Datacron. Drops from trash too. It was a gold trash, but still trash

  • Matthew Ottoson

    The Champ Master Saryta on Quesh at 904, -836 dropped the Datacron after about 8 times for me and then twice in a row. takes about 5 min for respawn.

  • Ceniza

    I picked up a Dark Strength Datacron on Tattooine from a chest. It wasn’t any of the Heroics, but the mobs there gave credit for the bonus for [HEROIC 2+ Reap the Whirlwind].

  • baldylox

    makeb heroic missions need updating.

  • Matthew Ottoson

    Check out Achievement under location, general, exploration. There is a list of achievements under each planet that need to be accomplished, this does not look like it will be easy!

  • Arby

    Hehe… oops, wrong topic. Exqueeze me.

  • tourviell

    I was on Alderaan, sending companions for low lvl Treasure Hunting. Vette made critical on mission with lvl 1 lockbox and I got willpower datacron from it 🙂

  • Nic

    The pre-req quest for [HEROIC 4] Jawa Trade on Tatooine is New Threats, obtained from Commander Vilos.

  • iturnrocks

    Would be helpful if you used a Republic toon when making maps for Republic missions. I’m speaking of Belsavis, haven’t checked the others.

    • Yes it would, I got lazy there and didn’t want to spend an hour to explore the map fully on my pub toon hah.

      • Never Fail Purple

        Thats why your guides suck. Do you know you still have people failing purple phase of the Operator IX fight because you’re to lazy to update it. If you and your crappy group didnt suck so bad you wouldve never had to fail in the first place. Is that why you put it in your guild because you didnt want people to know you sucked SO bad you had to fail so you said “Yea fail purple its good” in your guide?

  • Telanis

    Gezda, not Gazda.

  • Telanis

    The Alderaan map for Imperials has different numbers than the table.

    • Chad Cloman

      Yes, quest #1 and #2 are switched. Also, quest #2, [HEROIC 4] The Lanar Question, is level 28.

  • Telanis

    [HEROIC 2+] Reinforcements does not require the Bonus Series.

  • Telanis

    I can confirm that [HEROIC 4] Static requires the first mission of the Hoth Bonus Series to be completed beforehand. However, [HEROIC 2+] Pirated Lockbox ALSO requires this!

  • Telanis

    [HEROIC 4] A Traitor’s Punishment requires [HEROIC 2+] Taking the Heat to be completed first.

  • Nez

    The Nar Shadaa missions [HEROIC 4] Lab Animal and [HEROIC 2+] Hired Guns are part of the bonus series and need to be marked as such otherwise they are not available.

  • John Travis

    No listing here for Light Datacron of Cunning, which supposedly drops on Quesh. Any confirmation?

    • It is a random drop I believe off the mobs

  • insomnia

    What i read somewhere else, is you go to the planet, and buy those boxes with random loot in them. There are 2 versions, and its the most expencive of them. I recall its 10 basic commendations. That is how i got mine

  • Magsel

    I killed every single elite on Makeb (empire) where the 2 heroics (mentioned in this guide) are and not 1 dark endurance datacron deco dropped. I’ve done every other heroic for the cron deco’s and all of them dropped except this one. Anyone got any insight on this?

  • D’aeon

    [Heroic 4] The Mandalorian Terror does not appear to be repeatable on Balmorra (Republic).

  • R

    Damn girl thanks

  • Chad Cloman

    On Belsavis, for the Republic
    [HEROIC 2+] Open Communication (mission-giver Agent Hextal), there is a prerequisite mission that you have to do to unlock it. The prereq is for Doctor Fash, who’s standing in the same tent as Agent Hextal, and is named “The Perfect Carrier”.

    Very easy to do, only takes a few minutes.

  • kalebspot

    On Belsavis, for the Empire:
    [HEROIC 2+] Lights Out requires you to finish ”Scientific Endeavors” first, wich starts nearby with Major Locke at X: -943 Y: 2234.
    Also, the heroic itself wich starts with Corporal Hadron, has the wrong coordinates. The right ones are: X: -906 Y: 2198.

  • Erudius

    Where is Light Cunning? I don’t see it on the list.

    • Magsel

      Try the search feature of your internet browser on this page 😉

      • Erudius

        yep, I did. The only light cunning is the one in my comment.

    • ConstitutionalRepublican

      It’s from Quesh which has no heroics.

  • Valethar

    Did they nerf this too? Been doing the heroics on this list for several weeks now, and not a single datacron drop from any of them. :/

  • Armyjarine Dean

    I keep doing these dailies and don’t seem to be getting any of these dark datacrons… I had one from a long time ago, but I don’t get lockboxes anymore… I only get the locked supply crates… Are these the ones that the decoration has a chance to appear in? Or is it not attainable while doing the Command Quests?

  • Naitô Gui

    Still no datacrons… I’ve heard sb say you can only get them while doing the H2 with a new character and never again after that. Is it true ?
