Useful Trooper Datacrons

Aim / Endurance / Matrix Crystal Shards / Cunning* / Presence*

So for some reason I'm awake super early, and I decided to play SWTOR but the servers were down for maintenance. So I decided to do some prowling on the forms to see if I could find something interesting. I stumbled upon the Bounty Hunter area. There I find a Useful thread telling people where to find Datacrons specific to their class, which would be the same as ours(except for a few changes). I looked around our forum to see if something like that would be here and did not find anything. So I decided to replicate that thread here with the necessary changes of course.

*You will notice that I also added cunning datacrons. These are not a necessity, but they add some Tech Damage Bonus and Tech Crit Chance to a few of our skills.

*Presence is useful with your companions. It makes them heal better, do more damage, and it increases their health.

The planets are ordered based on when you get there. Such as Ord Mantell datacrons being first and Ilum being last. I also put Tython in here so that will be right after Ord Mantell datacrons if you want to go there.

Planet :

Ord Mantell:
Nar Shaddaa:

Alright now that you have your extra stats lets get into making some Matrix Cubes(Relics). If you come from playing Wow like me the easiest way to think of Relics is that they are trinkets. You click them and they give a boost for a couple of seconds. Below I will show you what shards you need to make these Matrix Cubes and where you can get them. There are 4 levels of cubes that you can make that start at level 15 and of course end at 50.

Once you have all your shards follow this guide to assemble your Matrix Cube.
Shard types:
R = Red
Y = Yellow
G = Green
B = Blue

Level 15:

RBG= 15 Aim / 10 Endurance

Here is where to get the Matrix Shards:
R: - Ord Mantell
B: - Tython
G: - Taris

Level 24:

BYY = 19 Aim / 24 Endurance
You should already have 1xBluefrom Tython. Others Needed:
Y: - Coruscant
Y: - Nar Shaddaa

GBB = 28 Aim / 14 Endurance
You should have the 1xBluefrom Tython and the 1xGreen from Taris. You will need one more Blue and you can find that below:
B: - Tatooine

Level 32:

GRR = +39 Aim / +23 Endurance
For this one you already have 1xGreen from Taris and 1xRed from Ord Mantell. You will need one more Red and you can find that here:
R: - Hoth

BGG = +29 Aim / +33 Endurance
You already have 1xBlue and 1xGreen from Taris, that means you need 1 more Green. Find it right here:
G: - Belsavis (Read the description)

Level 50:
3x Blue Shards: Matrix Cube = +58 Aim / +50 Endurance / +24 Crit
3x Yellow Shards: Matrix Cube = +52 Aim / +60 Endurance / +18 Defense

Here is how you get each shard:

Thanks for reading the guide and if you have anything that I missed or need to improve on please let me know. Hopefully we can get this stickied, because I believe this can help out all troopers.

Suggestion: Add the codex entry name next the Stat (Like for Ord Mantell have Aim +2 - Galactic History 12: The Birth of the Republic)

Would make it easier for people trying to identify which ones they don't have.

Wow, awesome thread! Thanks so much for putting this together. Also makes me realize i should have been datacron hunting teh whole time. At level 39 I could really add some oomph to my Vangaurd with everything up through Balmora..

Glad you did this! This will be very helpful to fellow troopers.

I had to write down on paper all the Datacrons I wanted so I didn't waste time getting the ones with stats I could not use... This would have saved me time.
