SWTOR Taris (Empire) Purple Mastery Datacron Location Guide

The Purple Mastery Datacron increases your aptitude in combat, allowing you to do more damage. It will grant you Mastery +4 to your permanent stats along with codex: Galactic History 50: Basilisk. There are 5 Datacrons in total located on the planet of Taris.

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: 367, -908.

This Datacron is located very high up on a broken platform in the Jedi Excavation Site [Heroic Area] in the Sinking City. Your starting point is in the area filled with Dread Corruption.

As you climb this extremely steep beam, stay on the right side, do not run up through the middle, because there will be sections that's even steeper and you can't get above them. However when you get to each of these sections, go into the middle as you pass the steepest part, cross the incline and back out to the right again. Repeat this until you reach the top.

At the top, jump down to your right to a large beam below.

Turn around and walk along on the part to your right until you reach the end of it.

At the end, jump onto the broken upright wall and follow it left. Use a mount, if you find it easier.

At the end of the wall, on the metal beam still attached, jump to the next broken beam. Aim for the left part.

Follow it up to more stable ground, then move to the right side. Turn right at the upright pillar, the beam is attached to.

Move onto the middle part of the beam (orange coloured) and get to the end of the pointy bit.

At the tip, jump to the metal beam below on the right side. A mount is not needed for this jump.

From the left side of the pillar, jump to the next broken beam. Use a mount if you find the jump easier.

When you reach the wall, turn left.

Continue on the broken platform, you will be able to see the Datacron from here. Be careful! There is a gap midway.

This will grant you Mastery +4 to your permanent stats along with codex: Galactic History 50: Basilisk.

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:

Since their grueling campaign against the Nevoota, the Mandalorians had only grown in power, cutting a swathe through the galaxy in search of worthy opponents. When the Mandalorians besieged the planet Basilisk, the Basiliskans--reptilian droid-builders and legendary technologists--learned that the stories of Mandalorian battle prowess were true.

Realizing they couldn't win even with Republic aid, the Basiliskans chemically poisoned their own world, hoping to take their conquerors with them. But the Mandalorians were victorious nonetheless, enslaving the Basiliskans and eventually turning them into mindless beasts of war.

More importantly, the Mandalorians captured many of the unique droids that the Basiliskans created. After this conquest, they were able to mass-produce the droids for themselves. Centuries later, the Mandalorians' Basilisk war droids would become a legendary terror during the Mandalorian Wars.
