SWTOR Taris (Republic) Green Matrix Shard Location Guide

The Green 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 27: The Great Hyperspace War. 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: 1062, 1067.

This Datacron is located in the Abandoned Power Plant in the very south part of the Tularan Marsh. Turn left as you enter the Power Plant. As you travel further inside you'll pass a big open area to your right. When you get to the second open area, jump down to the clickable control panel. You will need to bring a friend along.

Your friend stays at the console to be able to click, while you move on top of the grid covering the exhaustion pipes.

As your friend clicks the panel you will be jettisoned up in the air and land randomly (hopefully) on top of the pipes above.

As soon as you land on one of the pipes, make your way towards the narrow pipe above the platform where the Datacron is located.

Once you stand above the platform, I recommend jumping down to the right one. The jump from one platform to the other is easier to make than from the pipe. From the pipe, there's a risk of simply gliding off.

Get your freind to deal with the Rakghoul NPC below, otherwise you'll be slowed in your jump from being in combat and therefore miss the jump. I recommend using force speed or Rocket Boots for the jump.

This will grant you a Green Matrix Shard, which is no longer useful, but is simply part of the Legacy achievement towards Datacron Master, along with the codex: Galactic History 27: The Great Hyperspace War.

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 Sith had never forgotten their first exile from Republic space. With a trail unwittingly laid by the hyperspace explorer Jori Daragon, Sith Lord Naga Sadow saw a chance for revenge and to expand the borders of the Sith Empire. He had tricked the Sith Council into believing the Republic was about to attack and united several Sith factions into a massive invasion fleet.

Meanwhile, Jori Daragon had done her best to warn the Republic of an impending Sith invasion, but only the warlord Empress Teta believed her. Teta was still gathering her armies when Sadow's entire fleet arrived in the Koros system and opened fire.

Jedi and Republic forces rallied quickly, but strengthened by Sith sorcery, Sadow's attacks were unpredictable and devastating. The conflict quickly spread throughout the galaxy, until even Coruscant was threatened. The Great Hyperspace War became the first conflict on a truly galactic scale.
