SWTOR Coruscant Yellow Matrix Shard Location Guide

The Yellow Matrix Shards are remnant relics of the Infinite Empire and no longer useful. Once they were used to create your first relics at the game's launch. Now it's simply part of the Datacron Master Achievement along with codex: Galactic History 06: The Infinite Empire Collapses. There are 5 Datacrons in total located on the planet of Coruscant.

Datacrons are collectables scattered around the galaxy in Star Wars: The Old Republic. Each Datacron contributes towards your Legacy's passive stats permanently. Furthermore, they also provide interesting Lore and Codex Entries about the Old Republic era.

Starting coordinates: 1176, 4431.

This Datacron is located in the Works. It's a little bit tricky to get to and you have to climb a bunch of pipes. You start by climbing the stack of crates to get up to the first pipe.

When you get to the top of the pipe, you have to jump to the next one. (Mind the gap)

At the end of this pipe you have to jump down to the next section. I recommend to jump, since gliding off can cause your character to land slightly to either side and therefore glide off the next one and fall to the ground.

Follow this section until you reach a new slimmer pipe running below and jump to this one. The jump here is a bit awkward, so take it slowly.When you land on the slimmer pipe you are on an upward angle. Walk until your character can't move further. Now jump first, then move forward a bit at a time until you reach the top. Then follow the slim pipe around until it ends.

At the end of this pipe you have to jump to the next one. I recommend a running jump.

Follow this pipe until you reach another one and jump on top of that one. I recommend a running jump, but stay close to the wall to the left to mitigate as much as you can of falling off. Get to the top of the new pipe and jump to the last one that leads upwards to a platform.

When you get to the platform you have to jump to one last pipe to the right to reach the platform where the Datacron is located.

This will grant you a Yellow Matrix Shard, which is no longer useful, but is simply part of the Legacy achievement towards Datacron Master, along with the codex: Galactic History 06: The Infinite Empire Collapses.

This datacron holds unheard of power and knowledge collected by an ancient race. You access its power and discover writings which are clearly only one small piece of a massive galactic history:

The Rakata species had created a glorious Infinite Empire with their Force-fueled machines, but cracks were beginning to show. The cruelty of the Rakata to their slaves and occupied worlds grew more pronounced. If a planet's population rebelled, that entire world would be burned to glass.

Despite this, more slave rebellions began to rise across the galaxy, forcing the Rakata to divide their forces to deal with them. A plague, either created by the rebelling slaves or by Rakata dissidents, began to decimate the Rakata population. The Rakata realized that, possibly due to the plague, they were losing their connection to the Force; without it, they were cut off from their technology.

The fall of the Infinite Empire, once it began, was swift. The slaves overwhelmed their Rakata overseers, who fled into the Unknown Regions of the galaxy. The Rakata degenerated into a tribal culture and even resorted to cannibalism. The Infinite Empire was gone; only its technology was left behind.
