If a Codex bug is fixed, but the entry was something obtained in a story instance, like, say the Agent's Red Blade entry, when the bug is fixed, will it be possible to get the entry?

From experience, some Codex entries have been granted retroactively, such as the one below:

Darth Angral (Knight)

There's another one for the Jedi Knight, recently fixed, that hasn't however. I submitted a ticket to the CS about it.

We'll see how it goes I guess.

Speaking of Codex bugs, I have spent the last couple hours killing every possible

Mutated Colicoid on Balmora that I possibly can. This is after already killing several when I went through my sith inquistor class phases months ago. I am trying to get the bestiary lore object achievement for the Imperial Beastmaster of Balmorra (Imperial Exploration). I even went as far as to find another sith inquist. at the phase of the story they can access the den and completed their storyline for them (my char is 60) so that I could kill every single colicoid in that hazerdous hole in the ground. ALL Failures.

According to swtorspy this is where you get the completion for this achievement, but nothing has worked (and did not work months ago when I first did it). Is this still bugged? Seems like the original poster mentioned it two years ago... I can't imagine such a simply fix wouldn't of been applied by now? Am I just missing something? Is there another area that the guide(s) don't mention that you can actually kill one to get this reward?

Any insight into this would be fantastic; I only like going back to a planet once for exploration achievements and it looks like that is now out the window.

My wife and I got the Mutated Colicoid last night, without using an instance. From what I read elsewhere, I gather the instance itself doesn't have the needed beast, but there's a way to exit from it that leaves you in an area with some. But we'd also read, and could see for ourselves, that there's one that pokes its head out above some rocks overlooking an area in the "back yard" of the Arms Factory. (Go through the factory, up a couple levels, and end up outdoors. Follow a path to the left up a hill to an area with some low domed structures.) Some people seem to be claiming they found the MC down among the domes, but we've only ever seen it atop the rocks. Even so, it's somewhat rare (slow respawn? roamer that only sometimes stands by the rock?); we had to switch instances to find one where it was visible.

We tried a while to climb the rocks, and failed. I read that an Agent's Exfiltrate skill could roll up the wall, but I wasn't able to make that work. But I did get high enough to make my companion appear above me, and then my wife's Juggernaut used Intervene to jump to my companion, from which she could reach the beast.

But then here's the last twist that I think has led to some of the arguments I see posted: She killed the one we'd been looking at, and we did NOT get the bestiary entry! So she explored and found she was in an area with four other Mutated Colicoids. She dragged a couple over near me (since I had no way to jump to her) and killed those, and we got the entry.

My guess is that the class instance I've seen mentioned, provides some way to exit into that area in the regular zone. In any case, my advice is not to worry about whether there's a colicoid visible above the rock. As long as you know which rock I mean (there are plenty of videos and other posts showing it) and have a Warrior available, you can reach the pack. Oh, and my wife says she saw screenshots that show the colicoids sometimes spawn down among the domes, or perhaps they used to but got moved. But we've never seen them down there.

Don't you think BW we're not waiting for Codex to be fully fixed!

Before I start, yes holy necro batman.
There are added characters to these planets that would be perfect for giving out the needed codex entries. Either the ones already added or putting an extra champion in place. For example on Imperial Balmorra, there is a uniquely named Collicoid in one of the Heroic Areas. It would be fantastic if we could get the Collicoid Lore Entry off of it. (Name starts with a K, that's all I remember about it.)
For Lore given from questlines, can it be possible to add said lore as a podium outside of the instance that is interactive?

Finally, it would be fantastic to add a reward of codex entries to all subsequent toons when Datacron Master, Lore Master, and Beastmaster on an individual planet. Add a flag that automatically checks all lore options. It is somewhat annoying that the datacron ones don't all get added on both sides, with big chunks of the list being limited to one side or another. Yes, I am aware that this usually doesn't reward the experience given to a toon for obtaining said lore entry, but that is hardly as important to completionists such as myself.

I'm not sure if there is anyone left at BW who knows about the original codex system. Sure, they still add some new ones from time to time, but I have the feeling no one dares to gid deeper into this system and they are just glad it's working somehow. Maybe it's a horrible mess of code from the days of old.
Bioware offers a friend referal system which gives referred players a couple of goodies (incl. 7 free days of sub and a neat free 10 x inventory slot for every character) and referring players some little shinies and cartel coins.
I would be happy if you choose my referral link to grab your free goodies.

But please note that the list in this thread is not updated for a long time and not actual any longer.

To check up bugged Codex entries better use that Thread: Codex Entries start fix in Patch 2.2.1 - 6 fixed, 309 still bugged (full list here)
