SWTOR Tatooine Red Mastery Datacron and Blue Matrix Shard Location Guide

Starting coordinates: -2337, 0.

Both of these Datacrons are basically located at the same place, on a Jawa Sandcrawler in the far west of the Dune Sea. You have to ride the Jawa Balloon, which will take approximately 20 min, but much longer if you miss any of the jumps. The Balloon will complete its full circle in approximately 40 min.

As the Balloon is approaching, stay calm. It will actually stop and let you jump into the "basket" easily. Now just enjoy the ride, but do not go afk. If you log out, you will spawn on the ground at your last known location.

As you approach the next Sandcrawler, stay calm. Do not jump too early. Wait until the Balloon is literally above the Sandcrawler. Use a running jump from the center of the basket over the heightened ledge, use a mount if it makes you more comfortable, but do not slide off.

Jump down from the top where the Matrix Shard Datacron is located.

Shimmy along the side of the Sandcrawler on the narrow ledge until you are right above a small platform directly below. This is where your Red Mastery Datacron is located.

I recommend walking backwards, since you walk slower backwards and to disable sprint (right-click the icon on your buff bar). If you missed this fall, you have to start all over again. Lightly tap S to walk backwards, but be prepared to move forwards as soon as you drop down.
