SWTOR Tython Blue Matrix Shard Location Guide

The Blue 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 11: The Tionese Face the Hutt Empire. There are 3 Datacrons in total located on the planet of Tython.

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: -107, 806.

This Datacron is located in the west side of The Forge Remnants in the very south of Tython. As you go south towards your class story mission you will see a gap in the wall to your right.

Run to the end and turn left and follow the path. There will be several groups of Flesh Raiders in your way.

When you reach the end of the path you get to a Flesh Raider Camp, where you will find the Datacron at the far right corner, worshipped by a Strong Flesh Raider War Leader.

This will grant you a Blue Matrix Shard, which is no longer useful, but is simply part of the Legacy achievement towards Datacron Master, along with the codex: Galactic History 11: The Tionese Face the Hutt Empire.

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:

Seeking to expand his territory, the ancient Tionese despot Xim began exploring the Si'klaata Cluster--and for the first time, encountered a force that could challenge him. This region belonged to the Hutt Empire. Although young, the Hutt Empire had already grown immensely powerful through its criminal enterprises, helped by the long lifespan of the Hutts.

The Hutts correctly assessed the threat Xim presented and poured resources into fighting him near the planet Vontor. Despite their strength, the Hutts were not certain of victory until they discovered the Si'klaata Cluster was home to several other powerful species, including the Nikto, Klatooinians and Vodrans. In a typical gambit, the Hutts managed to persuade these three species to sign the Treaty of Vontor, which bound them to the Hutts in perpetual slavery.

With these additional forces, the Hutts overwhelmed Xim at the third Battle of Vontor. Xim died a Hutt prisoner, leaving his vast holdings and territory free for the taking.
