115 replies on “SWTOR Heroic Missions for Datacron Decoration farming”

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.

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).

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.

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

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).

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.

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.

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.

‘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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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.

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)

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?

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. 🙁

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!)

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

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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?

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

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

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

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

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 🙁

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.

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.

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.

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

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’

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

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

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.

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

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.

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].

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!

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 🙂

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.

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?

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!

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.

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

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?

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.

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.

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. :/

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?

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 ?

Supposedly the drop was changed after 4.0. You have to be in the planet’s level range to get the datacron. That, or I’m told they drop from Treasure Hunting Lockboxes that are either crafted or opened on the designated planet.
