are small cubes that are hidden in various hard to access places.
Any player can interact with the Datacrons, it's not class/allegiance dependent, just a matter of finding them. Interacting with a Datacron will allow you to discover a new codex entry and/or permanently
buff your character with a base stat.
Keep in mind that certain Datacrons can give you a Matrix Shard
instead of a stat buff, which can be used to build a Matrix Cube
. A Matrix Cube can be equipped in one of your 3 relic slots.
Datacrons are categorized by colors:
: + Cunning
: + Strength
or they can be Shard Datacrons, which will give you a Matrix Shard instead. For more details go to the our Matrix Cubes/Relics guide
