Galactic History 09: The Force Wars

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:

On the planet Tython, an order of philosophers and researchers arose, studying the mysterious energy that permeates all things--an energy known as the Force. However, disagreements developed within the order about how this energy should be used, leading to the Force Wars that eventually engulfed the planet. A faction comprised of those who followed a more peaceful path left Tython and established itself on the planet Ossus; later, this faction called itself the Jedi Order.

At their new enclave, the Jedi refined a code that would guide them. They became a monastic warrior people, devoting themselves to the pursuit of peace and knowledge, rather than personal power.

In the wake of the Force Wars, the Jedi also had a new understanding of the Force. They saw that the Force, while naturally light, could be used for corrupt ends. Those who did not respect its power risked falling to the dark side.

-33,-36 on the main Tython Map
This datacron is a lot harder to find than the empire equivalent. The above location is up on a ledge that appears to be inaccessible. You have to go around behind the datacron and the entrance to the cave that leads to it is at -34, -29.

You can actually reach this by climbing your way up the rocks in front of it from the outside of the cave. It can take a few tries to jump up the rocks but it might be easier in the long run than going through the whole cave.

Tython: Datacron - Galactic History 09: The Force Wars located at -33, -35 which is accessed by going through a cave located at -28, -30 (to be a little more literal, on your map the cave is underneath the "F" in "Flesh Raider Territory")

If you're coming back and doing this after you've gained a few levels, going through the cave at -28, 30 is simpler.

If you take the main path from the flesh raider territory toward the ruins of Kaleth head south off the path at 44, 38 dropping down into the stream area. Turn towards the right once you hit the stream and you should see the cave.

Datacron: 09: The Force Wars X:-33, Y:-102
Enter the cave at the end of the river flowing from the waterfall, near Flesh Raider Territory.

LOL I didn't know that and Just Jumped up the side of the cliff (the one with the river beneath it.) at level 4 and avoided the higher level mobs in that area.

Pour les Francais qui n'aiment pas l'anglais, vu que torhead n'a pas encore mis en place un support multilingue.

Pour acc?(C)der a ce datacron il faut vous rendre ? l'entr?(C)e de la grotte situ?(C)e -29,30, tuer quelques b?tes, et vous arriverez en haut de la chute d'eau.

Bonus : +2 Endurance
