The Codex is a bugged mess and has been from day one. It is full of unobtainable entries, deleted entries, incorrect entries. There is not a single planet in this game on which you can collect all Codex entries. A lot of Codex-related achievements are bugged as a result.

Any plans on fixing the horrible mess the Codex is?

Here are the bugs I discovered in the Codex. The list is by no means full, more entries will be added in the future but even like this you can see the astounding number of bugged entries. Some developer response would be appreciated since the codex has been like this since launch.

Planetary entries:

Balmorra - Persons of Note - Lieutenant Major Pirrell (Bounty Hunter)
Balmorra - Species - Colicoid (This entry is unobtainable by Imperial players as the creature that grants it only exists in the Republic version of Balmorra.)

NOTE: BELSAVIS LOREMASTER IS UNOBTAINABLE BY IMPERIAL PLAYERS
Belsavis - Lore - The Inifinite Empire (unobtainable for Empire players as it's granted during a Republic-only quest)

Corellia - Persons of Note - The Real Darmas Pollaran (Smuggler)
Corellia - Persons of Note - The First Son (Jedi Consular)
Corellia - Species - Drall

Dromund Kaas - Lore - Lord Parnax's Lost Recordings
Dromund Kaas - Lore - Blade of the Sith Executioner
Dromund Kaas - Lore - The Phobis Device
Dromund Kaas - Organizations - Revanites

Dromund Kaas - Species - Duros
Dromund Kaas - Species - Selkath

NOTE: HOTH BEASTMASTER IS UNOBTAINABLE BY IMPERIAL PLAYERS.

NOTE: ONE OF NAR SHADDAA'S ENTRIES IS ACTUALLY LOCATED ON DROMUND KAAS.
NOTE: NAR SHADDAA HAS INVALID ENTRIES FOR THE REPUBLIC.
Nar Shaddaa - Bestiary - Gundark (unobtainable for Republic players; the Imperial entry is granted on Dromund Kaas; there is one Gundark in a Smuggler instance that does not grant the entry)
Nar Shaddaa - Bestiary - Vrblther (unobtainable for Republic players as all Vrblthers are in Imperial-only instances; there are several Vrblthers in a Smuggler instance that do not grant the entry)
Nar Shaddaa - Persons of Note - Drooga the Hutt (Smuggler)
Nar Shaddaa - Persons of Note - Halidrell Setsyn (Warrior)


NOTE: ORD MANTELL LOREMASTER IS UNOBTAINABLE FOR 2 CLASSES.

NOTE: THE RECENT FIXES HAVE ENABLED SEVERAL ACHIEVEMENTS TO BE OBTAINABLE BUT THE CODEX STILL HASN'T BEEN UPDATED TO REFLECT THE RECENETLY REMOVED ENTRIES AND AS SUCH, SHOWS MORE ENTRIES THAN THOSE THAT ARE CURRENTLY OBTAINABLE IN THE GAME.

EPIC ENEMIES THAT WERE CONVERTED INTO ACHIEVEMENTS:
NOTE: EPIC ENEMIES COUNT AS ACHIEVEMENTS NOW (SAVE FOR SOME FLASHPOINT AND WORLD BOSSES) BUT THEY STILL SHOW UP AS UNOBTAINABLE ENTRIES IN THE CODEX. HERE'S A FULL LIST OF THEM.

This sub-forum is for bug reporting not ranting. Without specifics your post is useless.

Are the Makeb Datacrons showing up yet in CODEX? Last time I checked they had been MIA still.

I will keep bumping this thread until you fix the Codex, I swear it.

Oh and thanks to its bugged nature, nearly all related titles and achievements are bugged and unobtainable.

Is there literally nobody on the dev team who ever bothers to check on these things?

Also, considering you bother investigating issues such as Cartel Item colors not unifying properly....any chance you could look into this as well?

It's actually really sad how they left this bugged for this damn long... Hell, hire me for cheap pay and ill fix the damn bugs by myself.

Agreed. This is something I could fix in a single afternoon. It's absurd how long these things have been left bugged.

Saying that Dromund Kaas Loremaster is unobtainable is false. I have that planet on 100% completion.

....Apparently you don't need those 3 lore objects that you list to get that achievement...didn't notice that.

My apologies I removed that statement. I'm collecting Codex entries with Republic characters mostly, so I did not check if I had the Dromund Kaas Loremaster achievement or not. I automatically presumed that the bugged Lore entries precluded it.

However, I do know for certain that it's impossible to achieve 100% completion on Dromund Kaas because of the three bugged species. So saying that you have the planet on 100% completion is equally false.

EDIT: Here I meant Dromund Kaas under "Planets" in the Codex. Not the Dromund Kaas achievement under Locations in the Legacy tab.
