While leveling multiple alt characters, I wanted one place for matrix cube relics and shards. No success caused me to compile the data below, references included. Hope it helps you as well.

Also used my own reference notes, which may contain errors. Other datacron numbers for color shards can be used; but I tried to pick the easiest/lowest-level shard obtainable by someone attempting to create a current-level Matrix Cube relic.

- An example of this comparison is for Matrix Cubes requiring green shards; you must obtain the extra greens from Belsavis and/or Corellia... the green shard datacron on Corellia requires the MGGS, but may be easier than obtaining 4 Rakata Energy cubes for the Belsavis green shard datacron. If you happen to be in a group, this may not be an issue for you since only 4 energy cubes are needed to unlock the datacron for anyone nearby (until it resets; duration about 5 minutes).

Enjoy!

Nice! Thanks.


Note to BW: Why no lvl 15 cube for cunning, but 2 cubes for strength?

Good point. That may be an oversight; or maybe it is part of the character balancing.

Str matrix cubes at level 15 have either 8 endurance (likely for melee dps) or 14 endurance (likely for tank). An option for you could be to use the aim matrix cube Matrix Cube M2-W2, since both cunning and aim seem to help the ranged dps tech roles to increase damage/healing. Willpower users have the same issue with only one matrix cube at lvl15.

Are relics the only thing you can make from Matrix shards?

Currently yes. I do not know if this may change in the future. As long as you have the required shards, you may make as many matrix cube relics as you want. Only one may be equipped at a time though.

I am fairly certain I am not alone on this... BW should fix the level 50 matrix relics. Crit doesn't help healers as much as power. And a shadow tank (willpower/shield/absorb/defense) matrix relic is needed. There are probably other minor changes needed.

Added Imperial color combinations, coordinates formatting, and abbreviations (brevity).
