+10 datacron

Hey.

So this obviously isn't an urgent issue (considering all the other bugs in the game), but I was wondering if the +10 datacron will ever become "unbugged" for those of us that were unable to pick up the necessary blue crystal? At least that is what my issue was - others may have experienced something different - but I have tried every way suggested to "unbug" myself, I have gone about acquiring the datacron correctly- but when trying to pick up the blue crystal it states "Nothing Happens". This was the issue when I first started playing this game back in February. At the time I created an in-game ticket, which provided no resolution. I thought you guys would get around to it eventually. But no. I tried again last week and still the same bug. I again, created a ticket - and got the response of..we will forward this to QA and this matter will not be discussed with you any further. Ok Then! So I will ask here - and perhaps others are still having this issue -....Will this ever be fixed? Can you just place the item in my inventory so I can go about getting it? Throw me a bone here!

Have you already gotten the datacron on that character and now trying to get the crystal to assist others in getting it too? If so you can't, once you've gotten the +10 Datacron, you can no longer access that crystal.

Edit* If you need that Datacron, join a group and as long as one person in the party can get the crystal, everybody can get in to aquire it.

I've seen it bug out if someone uses the crystal too many times to lower the shield, it did it to us one night, about halfway through getting a large group of our guild the datacron. Now I'll go there with one of my toons that doesn't have it yet to preposition a character inside the force field room, so the shield can be dropped and log out. Then once we do a run were guarranteed no issues.

No. I never acquired it on my main character because I could never pick up the crystal. And I have been solo and in a group - you can't pick up the datacron unless you have the blue in your inventory. The red crystal is the one that only on person in the group needs. That one allows access to the area. I think in a later post you also said that if you try picking it up, or lowering the shield too many times - it buggs. This hasn't worked from the first time I have tried to pick it up in a group with my guild. So not that either. Still tried to pick up the datacron without it - even though everyone else in the group had it - but it was a no go.

hehe that's why you keep someone in that room or an alt toon there at all times, well at least til everybody has gotten the Datacron. Usually after a server reset the bug goes away, that is when I go preposition my toon and schedule a guild run for it.

I thought that too - surely after a server restart it would help. But there have been many since February..lol and nothing.

Strange? I've run many or our guild through and they never needed to get the blue crystal? it's only needed to lower the shield, once that is done anyone who has finished their class quest can get it.

you need both to lower the shield

Lowering the shield is the red crystal - something you pick up in another area. When you go in - you blow through one door ..everyone runs through the little tunnel to a Blue crystal - whether it's "blue crystal" that shows up in your inventory - I don't know....that's what it looks like. Then you come back out. Stick the red crystal in the other slot facing the other door...lower the shield. Two different things. I can Lower the shield for others because I have the red crystal. However - when we get to the datacron I am not allowed to pick it up due to the lack of blue crystal.
