Datacrons already obtained

How can I identify which datacrons I already have? I was going to go back to planets and collect the datacrons I didn't already get.

Is there to see which I already collected?

You can use your codex to figure out which ones you already have. Each datacron has a Galactic History entry number specific to that datacron... its a bit of work, but I don't really know any easier way at the moment.

There is a way.

In-game, press "L" to open up your Log. Then click on the "Codex" Tab, and then click on "Achievements: Datacron".
Then, cross-reference all the "Galactic History" codex entries you have, with a list here

Every Datacron offers a codex entry, except the 2 on Makeb. So it'll be easier for you to know which ones you have, and which ones you don't after a bit of cross-referencing.

Good luck.

BTW, does fleet cron have a codex entry? I can still use the actual number of the bonus without gear but that would be easier. Too many alts to remember which ones have gotten it.

Fleet crons don't have a codex entry which drives some members mad when we do fleet runs as they can never remember which characters have them.

The way I do it :

- Codex -> Planets -> select one -> details. It will say (example) 3/5 found. So now you know you are missing two on that planet.

- I go to swtor-spy and look at codex by planet. They have all datacrons there. By looking at the list and the codex list under codex -> datacrons I figure out which two are missing.

- Go get them

Besides that, since I have 12 toons, I keep an xls on a laptop where I keep track of special things like who has the +10 in fleet. But another way to keep track of it : when you go to Corellia get the crystal you need there. As long as it is in your inventory, you haven't done the +10, no? And if you do the +10 and don't use the crystal (possible on big runs) then throw the crystal away as an indicator that you got the +10. There is no other use for it.

Makeb : Note that Alderan now shows 2 more DCs, which I think are supposed to be the Makeb ones (since there is no planet Makeb on your codex list). Yet, when you get them the DC count for Alderan does not change (bug?) But the achievement on Makeb planet DOES update. Of course this indicates one toon got it, after that, no way to track for other toons.
I don't know if this is a Sith thing, but at the beginning of every game conversation my first thought is "You are so dead"...

Even easier than that. There is an achievemrnt for getting all the datacrons on a planet. Open your Achievements and go to Locations and select the planet. Find the datacron achievement and it will tell you which ones you have.

Only works the first time though, since achievements are legacy wide. If you get them all on your main, the Achievements will still show that you've "gotten" them on your alt. So you'd still have to use the Codex.

Someone made a chart and posted the link in a thread somewhere on this forum which I am unable to find at the moment. The chart includes the planet, codex entry, datacron type and datacron location. There's a Republic and Empire listing available through the first 2 tabs at the bottom of the page. I find it extremely useful for cross-referencing the codex list with acquired datacrons.
