+3 Cunning - worth driving myself crazy for?

So, I spent about an hour last night leaping around rooftops and drainpipes in Mos Ila last night trying to get to the +3 Cunning datacron there (the long way, because someone put a rock in front of the easy way) and consistently failing to the point that I finally just gave up and kicked myself for spending so much time on it.

But as tends to happen, not being able to get it is irritating as well.

I may try again, but my question for those of you with more of a mind to game mechanics is: Am I really going to miss 3 cunning points? Are they likely to make a world of difference?

Two ways to look at it.

Will 3 Cunning make much difference at 50 (or 55)? Probably not.

But if you don't go for that 3 cunning, why would you go for any of the other little 3ish cunning increases? Which together add up to a lot of cunning.

I helped someone get this last time I went through, took about an hour (they kept falling off). I'd say it's worth doing. You get the little cunning boost, training in controlling your toon, but mainly the satisfaction of knowing you succeeded.

And if it's really a problem for you, find an agile PT or inquisitor friend who can jump there and haul you up from the ground - lateral thinking and teamwork wins where brute force fails.
It's a small world and it smells funny, I'd buy another if it wasn't for the money.

Datacrons can be frustrating....I usually feel happy once I figure out how to get them, though. The Mos Ila was by far not the most frustrating one I went after. +3 isn't much, but I think there's about +40 all stacked together if you get them all, which does make a difference.

Well, I have Friday off work so I may devote some more time to it then. I suppose I got a bit spoiled by the previous planets where finding the datacrons was more finding and less jumping around nimbly-bimbly from roof to roof to gutter.

As long as I have a thread on this anyways - is there still one in Anchorhead as well? Is it accessible to Empire players without essentially rez-walking all the way to it, getting offed by NPCs the whole way? For the record, unless something changed from the videos on getting to it, it sure looks a lot easier to get to

That one is horrendous. It is one of the two that I don't even bother going after b/c of all the laggy, unresponsive jumping (the other one I hate is on Nar Shadaa).

I hate getting datacrons, I wish they would have a device you could buy, even if it was 1million credits, or 500 daily coms, that you could use to pull yourself to a datacron. Wonder if someday one of the business types will offer this on the cartel

I just wish datacrons applied to your entire legacy. It's even worse when you have to do it on all your characters.

On the harbinger server a very generous powertech managed to get up there and then hauled like 10 people up after him. Couldn't thank him enough!!!!

I really enjoyed getting to this datacron. I used a website that showed a picture guide on how to get them all, and with that I managed to get it first time. That said, without sounding like an ***, I consider myself a pretty good 'jumper' in this game.

I enjoy getting to those hard to reach places. This datacron will challenge you, but it is not impossible.

I was never that good at even Mario-style jumping

But you sure are right about the challenge. I know its possible to do with enough time devoted, but what can I say, I'd rather be questing or running FPs. I did try some more the other evening, kept falling at the same spot, that damned right angled pipe after the scaffolding.
