  1. Here are the locations of the all the Datacrons and Matrix Shard within Star Wars: The Old Republic. There are others out on the net, but they all are not complete. Some of them only showed where the Matrix Shards were on Empire Planets and I was a Jedi. Some have ones that others do not ect.... I've decided to compile them all here to make it easier on everyone. Matrix Shards Red Korriban: (-55, Y: 379) - Empire only This Red Matrix Shard is out in the open. Just head to the location and you cannot miss it. Ord Mandell: (778, 133) - Republic Only Hoth: (-738, 1738) - Requires Vendor Item First, you will have to buy an item called “Hydro-Thinner” from the Aurek Base Cantina Vendor at (-3533, -1382). Go to the Datacron’s location a little bit left of the Highmount Bluff’s entrance and use the Hydro-Thinner on it. It’s covered in ice and there is a large rock spike next to it to help with visibility. Illum: (543, 544) - Will PVP flag Empire The Red Matrix Shard is located on top of the Republic base inside. Yellow Coruscant: (905, 4557) - Republic Only Drumond Kas: (-187, 1738) - Empire Only A hidden path just east of the Datacron’s location is the entryway. There are a few elites nearby so be careful or bring allies. Nar Shadda: (1702, 3084) First go Coordinates (X:1708, 3090). There will be small crates which you can jump onto much larger unevenly stacked rectangular crates. At the top, look right and climb onto the pipes attached to the wall. Follow these pipes and jump until you reach a ledge with some crates. Jump up to the next area from here. Follow this path and make a left to find the Datacron. Illum: (311, -380) - Will PVP flag Republic The Yellow Matrix Shard is located inside a small building in the Imperial Base. Blue Hutta: (-9, 319) - Empire Only This Datacron is in the Sewer Maintenance Tunnels (Heroic Area)(X:-18, Y:12) which are the location of the “[Heroic 2+] Factory Recall” quest, as you have to fight elite enemies here. Tython: (-93, 925) - ?Republic Only Tatooine: (-2391, -1381) These two Datacrons are located in the same area. First, in the southwest corner of The Dune Sea there is a Jawa Sandcrawler. Get on top and wait for a balloon to appear. Ride this balloon. You will eventually see a Sandcrawler with a glowing Blue Matrix Shard Datacron. Jump down onto the Sandcrawler to obtain the Datacron. For the Red Datacron go to the edge of the Sandcrawler (the side closest to the Datacron) and carefully jump down to a small platform sticking out of it. There is a small compartment with the Datacron sitting inside. Corellia: (-2423, -1063) The Blue Matrix Shard is also Located in Labor Valley. It is Located at in the southeast corner of the map at -2307, -988. Green Balmora: (-505, 1990) - Empire Only, Requires 2 people to obtain Go to the far SW corner of the Gorinth Canyon map, to the cave complex located @ (-472, 1929). Inside you will find an elevator toward the rear of the complex. Go down the elevator. On the bottom level of the Neebray Warehouse is the Datacron and it requires two people to unlock the door to it. To open the shielded door two players must activate the “Shield Control” panels to the right and left and get the timing right. Taris: (1059, 10390) - ?Republic Only, Requires 2 people to obtain Within the Abandoned Power Plant go down to the lower levels and there will be a control panel to operate. One player must operate this and one play must jump onto to the area above. Activating this control panel will shoot the player on the platform up into the air onto some pipes. Go right then hop down to the next pipe. Follow it to the end and drop to the platform below. Make a jump to the platform right beside it to obtain the Datacron. Belsalvis: (-315, -2173) First find the elevator to Cave Under Tree on the Tomb map, the location is (-547, -2172). Take the elevator down and travel straight through to the far end of the room. The glowing cube is there with a quest reticule above it. Before the Datacron is a machine that is powered by 4 Rakata Cubes. Rakata Cubes are found all over Belsavis. They spawn at random hidden locations. Corellia: (701, -1890) - Requires Vendor Item First go to the vendor directly south of Tarlarn Outpost on Alderan and buy the MGGS. The Green Matrix Shard is Located in Axial Park. Access to it is through the Museum. Required Vendor Items Hoth: [Hydro-Thinner] - Purchasable at the Empire/Rebublic cantina on Hoth for 20k credits. Corellia: [MGGS] - Purchasable on Aldaran from vendor south of Tarlarn Outpost for 10k credits. Matrix Cubes are relics that can be created on your faction’s capital planet by using the Matrix Shards received from certain datacrons. Empire characters create Matrix Cubes in Dromund Kass’ Ancient Assembly Chamber, that is on the way to the Dark Temple. Republic characters create Matrix Cubes in Coruscant’s Lost Assembly Vault, the West room in the Jedi Temple. Each character may have one Matrix Cube in Mission Inventory or equipped at a time. Down from 4 during the beta. Matrix Cubes can no longer be stored in one’s cargo hold. Creating Matrix Cubes Matrix cubes grant a significant stat boost on equip. The particular stats per matrix cube depend on which three matrix shards were used in the assembler and if you are a force or tech user. There is a total of 12 Matrix Shards, three per color. The order the shards are placed in the assembler do not matter. The order the colors are listed in below is the way the game currently lists the shards. Matrix Shards: R = Red Y = Yellow G = Green B = Blue Tier 2 – Level 15: RBY — 18 Str, 8 End (M2-W3) BYG — 11 Str, 14 End (M2-W0) RBG — 15 Aim, 10 End RYG — 8 End, 18 Will (M2-W1) Tier 3 – Level 24: RYY — 19 Str, 24 End (M3-O1) BYY — 19 Aim, 24 End GYY — 28 Cun, 14 End (M3-L1) RBB — 19 Will, 24 End (M3-V2) YBB — 19 Str, 24 End (M3-J2) GBB — 28 Aim, 14 End (M3-A2) Tier 4 – Level 32: YRR — 14 Str, 33 End, 8 Acc, 10 Def BRR — 33 End, 29 Will (M4-V1) GRR — 39 Aim, 23 End (M4-B2) RGG — 26 End, 23 Cun, 16 Crit YGG — Bugged, gives YRR BGG — 14 Aim, 33 End, 8 Shield, 10 Def Tier 7 – Level 50: Force Users: YYY — 52 Str, 60 End, 18 Def (M7-Y3) GGG — 58 Str, 50 End, 24 Crit RRR — 58 Will, 50 End, 24 Crit (M7-R3) BBB — 50 Aim, 43 End, 26 Acc, 18 Crit (Possibly bugged since force users have no use for Aim) Tech Users: YYY — 24 Aim, 62 End, 24 Acc, 26 Def GGG — 50 Str, 43 End, 18 Crit, 26 Surge (Also possibly bugged) RRR — 48 End, 72 Cun, 7 Crit BBB — 58 Aim, 50 End, 24 Crit (M7-B3) Amplified Matrix Cubes Matrix Prisms, Matrix Emitters, and Matrix Amplifiers can be used to alter matrix cubes when they are being created. These components are currently not in the latest build of the game. Expect to see these amplifiers in a content update eventually. It is speculated that they can be used to create tier 5,6, and 8 Matrix Cubes. Disassembling Matrix Cubes Matrix Cubes can be broken down back into Matrix Shards in the disassembler which is in the same area as the assembler. In order to power it, you must use a Reconstructed Disassembler Core which can be purchased from a vendor on Tatooine’s Mos Isla or Anchorhead (by the north sand crawler), depending on your faction. The Reconstructed Disassembler Core currently costs 8k.
  2. When you say Star Wars, most people think of galaxies far far away. But all these exotic planets from the movies were filmed on earth. Four of the Star Wars movies were partially filmed in southern Tunisia (the planet Tatooine in the movies) and the good thing is that many of the locations are still in relative good state. You can stay in Luke Skywalker's home (now a hotel) and wander around the desert bumping into moisture vaporators and other Star Wars stuff around the Mos Espa set. Because Star wars is not well known in Tunisia, this article will introduce you to some famous locations from the movies and show you how to get there. So when you go on vacation to Tunisia, check out some of the locations over there. Sometimes you’ll think you are on Tatooine instead of Tunisia. Hint: Open a new tab showing Google Maps next to this page. Copy/paste the given Lat/Long coordinates in Google map's searchbox to see the Star Wars locations on a map. Djerba Djerba is a Tunisian island. It’s well known for its resorts and beach vacations. Two movie locations can be found on the western side of the island. Ben's hermitage and Toshi Station. Ben’s hermitage Lat/Long coordinates 33.740833,10.734951 This little house is actually used by fishermen as a storage. In Episode IV it can be seen as the house of Obi-Wan Kenobi. Ben’s hermitage (Photo by Hoylen Sue) Toshi Station Lat/Long coordinates 33.831411,10.747936 Sidi Jemour is a temple, located some miles north of Ben’s house. It was seen in the movie as Toshi Station in Anchorhead, in a shot where the landspeeder rushes into Anchorhead on its way to Mos Eisley. Toshi Station in Anchorhead (Photo by eckart1) Tozeur Tozeur is an oasis and a city in south west Tunisia. The city is located North West of Chott el-Djerid, in between this Chott and the smaller Chott el-Gharsa. With hundreds of thousands of palm trees, Tozeur is a large oasis. The dates that are exported from Tozeur are well known. From Tozeur you can make trips on a camel, explore the Sahara and get to know the Chott el-Djerid, where you can see fata Morgana's. Furthermore Tozeur is the place to be for Star Wars fans, because there are lots of movie locations around the city: the Lars Homestead exterior, the Mos Espa set, the Sith infiltrator landing site and Star wars canyon. Lars Homestead Exterior Lat/Long coordinates 33.842921,7.779071 Luke's home is located 35km out of Tozeur at Chott El Jerid. Chott El Jerid is part of the vast dry salt lake flats that cover 5,000 sq km on the West side of central/southern Tunisia near Algeria. The little igloo is standing here in the middle of nowhere. Because the Lars Homestead interior scenes were shot somewhere else, the crew had to dig some craters next to it, to make you believe there's actually an underground structure in the movie. Lars Homestead exterior(Photo by Hoylen Sue) The igloo was taken apart after the shooting of the first trilogy but was rebuilt for Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. Some memorable scenes were shot here, including Shmi Skywalker's funeral in Attack of the Clones, and the final shot of Revenge of the Sith. It's a good idea to visit this location near the evening. When the sun sets in the middle of the desert and with the little igloo as the only structure nearby, you'll get a spectacular view. Lars Homestead exterior sunset(Photo by Könczöl Gábor) Mos Espa Lat/Long coordinates 33.994296,7.842677 This set was built from nothing in the middle of the desert, and still stands. This is not a typical studio tour. Most Tunisians haven't even seen the Star War's movies, but they recognize that there's more value in just leaving the props alone and keep them in good state, than removing them. The Mos Espa set(Photo by Srdjan Djordjevic) You can see the whole town: the gates of Mos Espa; the Pod-racing arena; the gallery and the Mos Espa streets with Watto''s shop, the market and Sebulba's Café. Get there early in the morning and you could have the place to yourself. The Mos Espa set(Photo by maciekke) A few hundred meters away from the set you'll find the Yardangs: protruding bits of sandstone that look like shark fins peeping out of the desert. The Jedi duel between Qui-Gonn and Darth Maul in Episode I was shot here. Yardangs(Photo by Vitaliy Kebin) Sith infiltrator landing site (Oung Jmel) Lat/Long coordinates 34.015353,7.911444 About 6km East of the Mos Espa set lies Oung Jmel, better known as the camel head rock. This was the site were Darth Maul arrived on Tatooine and released the Sith Probes to search for Queen Amidala’s ship. The same location was used for Maul flying over the cliffs after having found Anakin and Qui-Gon. Sith infiltrator landing site (Photo by Jennifer) Juntland Wastes Lat/Long coordinates 34.033572,8.281771 23km North-East of Tozeur you can find Sidi Bouhel, better known as the Juntland Wastes in the movies. This canyon was used in 1976 for no less than 9 shots. Lucasfilm named it "Star Wars Canyon". Also the canyon was used in Raiders of the Lost Ark and in The English Patient. Star Wars Canyon (Photo by Roger Noguera Arnau) In front of the canyon entrance, you'll see the Sandcrawler parking lot. The inside is a narrow gorge walled by two hundred foot high cliffs and a wide, flat wadi that runs from Jebel Krefane down to the chott. In the gorge Luke was being attacked by Tusken Raiders, and met Obi-Wan Kenobi for the first time. Just outside the mouth of the gorge Imperial Stormtroopers attacked and massacred the Jawas who sold the droids on to Uncle Owen. Jawa Rock in Star Wars Canyon (Photo by Roger Noguera Arnau) Tataouine Ksar ouled soltane Lat/Long coordinates 32.788361,10.514989 Our next destination is Tataouine, located in the south of Medenine. The planet Tatooine got its name from this town, and that's about the town's only contribution to the movie. Most of the scenes were shot in the hills and villages surrounding the town. A little further south is located Ksar Ouled Soltane a beautyful ghorfa (grain storage facility) that was used to as a background for some of the Slave Quarters shots in Episode I. Ksar Ouled Soltane (Photo by Michael) Medenine Anakin Skywalker's home Lat/Long coordinates 33.347272,10.492051 Medenine is the major town in southeastern Tunisia. The main attraction in Medenine is Ksar Medenine, an ancient Berber fortified granary. North of Ksar Medenine is the granary that acted as the slave quarters in Episode I. It was used as the exterior the Anakin Skywalker's home in many shots. Skywalker Alley (Photo by Bernard Gagnon) Matmata Lars homestead interior Lat/Long coordinates 33.54253,9.967341 In Matmata you can actually sleep in Luke's home. The Hotel Sidi Driss served as the interior of the Lars homestead. Aunt Beru's kitchen is still there, but except for some fiberglass and wooden frames, and the fresco on the dining room ceiling, you won't find any props. Even so, it is easy to get excited when sitting in the very same dining room that the Lars family used. The hotel also has a well stocked bar with lots of Star Wars memorabilia and a Star wars inspired menu. Lars homestead interior (Photo by Jean-Marc Matthey) Tunisia Not only the Star Wars sites are worth a visit. Tunisia has lots of other things to offer. When you like to travel and want to see different desert landscapes, just rent a car and off you go. Tunisian desert (Photo by roger beau) Source
