I think I found the Endurance Datacron! It's in the Jedi Temple, in the Heroic Area (yes it's in a personal phase). If you go all the way to the end room/large library (where the 3rd Sith/Jedi and Boss bugs out currently), walk straight forward to the altar and flames. To the left of that, simply walk near the wall, and you'll be transported up to the second level. From there you see an Ancient Switch (I think this needs to be activated, but I haven't been able to kill the last Boss in that buggy room). You'll need to do some jumping, and make your way around the broken upper floor. You'll see the Datacron shielded in some way. Also, if you continue jumping to the other side, there is another Ancient Switch.

Edit: I did kill the last Boss with a comp healing, but had to position myself above, and then fall exactly where the companion would need to be (not inside of a wall). Comps work normally on the upper level, so just had to get my comp where I wanted him, and then jump off so the game thinks companion is still in that current spot (Boss will always run to where the companion last was, but only in relation to the X and Y Axes, Boss does not go upstairs). Boss ran over to the spot where the comp was "located" and I was able to kill him from there. I found out that killing the Boss and finishing the mission has no effect on the switches or the ability to unlock the datacron (in the current PTS patch). Oh well...

So 2 switches total, and 1 shielded Datacron. Images Below:

I figured out the Presence datacron on the bridge! No pushing or pulling required. Video here: https://youtu.be/vVWhbi14W0A

Starts in the Ancient Ruins section, you need to find a little cave where you can loot a grappling hook.

I gotta say I'm really enjoying figuring out how to do these datacrons, they're very cool. Some of the codices have been neat too, I found one of the Don the Exiled Knight ones in the Jedi Temple.

Cheers to the two people I was grouped with earlier trying to figure it out!

I'm not sure if it's related but I found 2 random tablets out in the world, right now they're just called "OBJECT HAS NO NAME" but you can click them and it makes a woosh noise, then you can't click again for a few seconds. You don't get any buff or item, but I'm wondering if maybe it's gonna be a 4 person thing where you have 2 people at the switches, 2 people at the tablets, and then when the tablets are clicked you get a few seconds to click the switches. Just a guess though. If anyone wants to form a group to try it out let me know.

First tablet location (circled in red) is in a little cave in Farms area: https://i.imgur.com/cBujtVv.jpg

Second tablet location is up along the mountain wall in Ancient Ruins: https://i.imgur.com/NiXcxeb.jpg

Really nice! Cheers! I was the Mercenary you grouped up with 😄 We tried everything - rocket boosting from the mountain, jumping from buggy textures in the air, etc. We managed to get to the pillar near the mountain, but that was a dead end 😅 It's really good you figured out how to make it without cheating with jugg push or anything like that.

That's awesome, thanks! Also, completely agree with the codices. I found one under a waterfall (Part One of the Exiled Knight)

That's a good theory, we should test it! I'll do that tonight here in a bit, actually...

Thanks a lot! I found and clicked both tablets, though that seemed to do nothing, cuz neither the ancient switch nor the datacron became active. Btw, guys, how do i get to the second switch? textures there are quite buggy so i cant make the jump.

And can please somebody tell me where the exiled knight is?

Well I found three of this tablets to push, so the 2 player switch/2 player tablet theory won't work out I guess.

Third one's located on the same mountain where the ruin with the red Datacron is.

I don't even get into that phase, where do you get the quest for that?

Edit: Found it. Npc had no quest symbol

Well, maybe they are related to Exiled knight? (need to check chievos tab to confirm/deny).
Btw do tablets still appear as "object has no name" ?
