Coruscant Yellow Matrix Shard Datacron Location

This Datacron unlocks the codex entry - 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.

How To Retrieve This Datacron

Coordinates: X 949, Y -2262

Jump up onto the boxes and then the pipe nearby (Screenshots 1 & 2) . Run up the pipe and jump to the other pipe right in front of you once you reach the top. After you make the jump follow this pipe down (be careful of the drop) until you reach the intersection. At the intersection you will need to jump to the southern pipe (Screenshot 3) and follow that further down, around the corner and to the next jump (Screenshot 4). This jump is a big one so watch out, it's easy to fall here and if you do you're going to have to start allllll over again.

Once you make it to the other pipe follow it up until you reach a pipe right on top of the pipe you're on (Screenshot 5). This is the hardest jump in my opinion, try to stick yourself against the wall and jump/run up the pipe in front of you. But be very careful, one mistake and you have to start over! At the top of this pipe is a little hop to the pipe below (Screenshot 6). This jump is a bit difficult too but only because your camera angle will be wonky up here.

TIP: Don't Run off, I tried that my first time around and my foot caught something on the pipe and I fell. I was mad.

Follow this small pipe up until you reach a large platform (Screenshot 7). From here you will be able to see the Datacron! Homestretch! Alright, now is a really annoying jump, mainly because it's the last one. Take a look at where I am in Screenshot 8 to line yourself up perfectly with this jump and then hold your breath and SPACEBAR! After you make it across the final pipe give yourself a pat on the back. You deserve it!

Yellow Matrix Shard Datacron Hunt
This is one of the scariest jumps. Try to jump into the wall while running up the pipe.

Yellow Matrix Shard Datacron Hunt 2
Make sure to actually jump here and not just fall. Falling could make you run off due to getting stuck on one of the pipe's thingies.
