I think some people might be misunderstanding here...

You don't just go to the heroic areas and mill about killing mobs.
You do the heroic quests. That'll drop them alot more often.

I got three dark willpower on Belsavis just by completing the Imperial Heroic 4 at the Remote Imperial Outpost in The Tomb area. One from a random elite, one from the champion in there, and one from a security chest in there.

The Light Datacron (Strength) from Balmorra can also be easily obtained from Imperial characters by taking Project Hexapod (H2) and killing the Champion in one of the rooms.

That explains a few things on the GTN, haha.

Blasting through Joint Training on Hoth (Imperial side, Dorn Base, from the Chiss chap) and I got the (Light) Aim Datacron from the storage case given as a quest reward. Nothing dropped from the mobs that time round, and honestly I'm a bit lazy, so I'm only going after one of each just so I can have them for myself

I received the Light Datacron (Presence) on Taris doing the Republic Mission Fall of the Locust (Heroic 4). The Locust Guard Captain inside the Locust Hideout drops it.

Do they drop on repubic Taris and imperial Balmorra? If yes, is it still better to farm the higher level world on the opposite side or stays the drop chance the same?

I had this drop yesterday on Taris - and I was nowhere near that Heroic. Surprised the heck out of me.

I did the Voss rep weekly and got about 12 datacrons. The drop rate is crazy good there.

Well I just completed the H2 mission on the Imp side and as the reward I chose the lockbox and low and behold I got the bloody Dark Datacron (Aim). So for sure it works on the Imp side still haven't had any luck on my Shadow though, but i'm going to keep trying but if it works for one side it should for the other, just have to do the daily Heroic it seems and take the lockbox, and just hope you get lucky!
