In this guide, we provide you with maps and complete directions to each of the Imperial datacrons hidden throughout Balmorra 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 Balmorra, there are a total of 4 stat boosts, and 1 matrix shard - complete details on how to find each can be found below.
This datacron is located within the Gorinth Canyon subarea of the map, to the south-east of Outpost Victory. After passing the outpost take the eastern most path south, eventually you will come across some rocks blocking your path. Jump up the rocks and continue down the path, passing some Zeldrat Scavengers and Flockrunners. The datacron is located at the end of the path.
The Green Matrix Shard can be found in the lower level of the Neebray Warehouse, the entrance of which is located in the most South West Point of Gorinth Canyon. At the rear of the main level will be an elevator that will take you down to the lower level. There you will find your datacron trapped behind a force field. To drop the force field you’ll need two players to activate the switches on either side of the room simultaneously.
After travelling to the Okara Droid Factory in the southern Markaran Plains, fight your way through to the elevator on the western side of the factory which will take you to the Assembly Line Area. Enter the main room with five assembly lines and jump down beneath them. The second one from the bottom (if looking at your map) will have a hidden doorway located in its eastern support beam with a friendly porbe droid in front of it. Inside the door will be a hole you can jump down onto a series of pipes. Carefully make your way down and on the last pipe you will find your datacron.
The Balmorran Arms Factory holds this datacron and it is located in the most northern point of the Sundari Flatlands. Once you enter the factory you will have to fight your way through to the elevator that will take you to level 2. This level will quickly open up into a large open area called the Power Center. There are two docks located to the east, each with a starship on them. Underneath the northernmost dock you will find your datacron.
This datacron is located in the Farnell Research Facility (Bugtown), which can be reached by taking the Vanguard Outpost Skyhopper. Vanguard Outpost can be found in the Mideast Markaran Plains.
As soon as you step off the skyhopper head east. This will take you across the water where you will find a path that leads up a ramp and to a vendor by the name of “ba ‘teil”, who holds the ‘Lost Code Cylinder’ you’ll need to buy in order to access the datacron.
After grapping the cylinder, head back to the Bugtown Outpost and follow the path north until you come across a broken bridge (appears broken on map). On the northern portion of the bridge will be a “Space Chest” which can be opened with your Lost Code Cylinder you previously purchased. Inside the chest you will find your datacron.
