Hi there,

Thanks for contacting me. While we do know that there are Codex entries that are bugged, this is not something that belongs on the Known Issues. I've made a post here that clarifies what belongs there and why. Missing Codex entries do not affect gameplay, and we try to ensure that this list doesn't include issues such as this.

Nonetheless, I'll do some talking in the studio and will see if I can get enough solid info to post an update on the forums with regards to what's going on with Codex entries.

Thanks for understanding, and please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.

Let me jump in and state definitely that nothing is gonna be done about this. No progress and no updates on the codex for 18 months should make this fairly obvious to anybody that's been playing this game for a while.

I can confirm this, Rep side. The object is there, but not clickable. Invasion of Balmorra is broken.

With no insult or disrespect intended to AmberGreen, she's dead wrong. Missing codex entries DO affect gameplay. Some of us like to queue up for flashpoints while we can still get decent experience for them, and one of the benefits of completing said flashpoints at appropriate levels is being able to turn to the codex, and know that you didn't cakewalk over a bunch of grey mobs to receive the entry, mobs that had zero chance to stop you. That may be fine for repeated Esseles/Black Talon runs, but for others, it's frustrating.

If they don't intend on fixing it, I'd prefer someone just come out and say so, rather than stringing us along like a strand of beads. Much easier to know you'll never, ever be able to get a certain codex entry and be able to just forge ahead secure in that knowledge, than to wait and wait and wait and wait and wait for someone to FINALLY decide to give an answer.

thought as much :/
I noticed i had nearly cleard the tyhton achievements.. so i went to find the 4 things i needed..
i'd got it down to last one - Wingmaw codex.. after ages looking, i had to give in & search web.. i found its on Balmorra?

But thats not the bug... hear me out..
i went thro my achv/ list for Tython.. definatley only the wingmaw one left to get.. so off to balmorra.. found the thing, killed it.. won the final codex
Then, realiising i didnt get anything for acheiving 100% on the planet... (which also annoyed me ) i had another look in achv.list..
It says now all 96% complete.. but nothing is missing... 'general' is showing a gap in bar - but states its complete.. and when i check whats missing... everything is there ???
My stats stuck on 96% ... with no more items to get???
c'mon.. i spent a fair amount of time 'cleaning up' the planet after me.. its annoyed me like hell..
sort it out.. all thes 'minor' glitches do add up y'know...

There are hidden Achievements that don't show up until you complete them, which is why I assume some planets don't complete when everything on them is done. However, achievements aren't the same as the codex, which is what I want to be working.

The hidden achievement you are missing on Tython is the MCR-99 Espionage Droid Achievement. I just completed it and now have 100% on Tython. Follow this guide: MCR-99 Espionage Droid Achievement Guide.

@Wolfpackaw: Any chance we could merge this thread with known bugged achievements, because they need to be documented, and I can't see a better thread for it than this.

To be honest, considering this is a story-related game, I feel the lore/codex is kind of important to gameplay--not to mention it gives experience too so...

It makes me sad to see the Codex is kicked to the curb As it is, even with tickets the results tend to vary. A friend and I both wrote in and each got different codexes granted X__x
