There's more than one balloon.
If you follow one that doesn't despawn, from the datacron site, to the climb-on point, and you get on that one, you don't have a problem.

If you're on a bugged one, and head straight back to the climb on point, and grab the next balloon, you'll always be on a bugged one.

It's not exactly optional.

For bounty-hunters the blue shard is needed to get the best in-game Relic right now.

Maybe it's an option to suck, I s'pose.

I laughed my *** off yesterday seeing two Imps fall out of the sky while I was stalking them. Killed them a couple times after for funnies.

Right now I'm riding the Jawa Balloon with fingers crossed.

And it looks like it's my turn. It disappeared at exactly 8:30 am server time.

Throwing my hat into the ring of frustration. Going to try the strategy posted above, following a balloon that didn't "pop" back to the boarding point. What else do I have to do for the next hour or so huh?...

Happened to me as well with a couple other peeps in the balloon at same time. Went again solo and got the datacrons. seems to be hit or miss. Definetely a bug.

Got to the crawler the next try using that tip above, now my frustration is with the red datacron, I can't drop to that platform to save my life becasue it can't drop straight down, it always moves forward and overshoots. But I guess that is off-topic.

as of 8:35pm PST it just went poof also about 15% way to go to the Blue Shard datacron. I have a hunch the path it's taking has a dead zone mid air. please CSR fix this
