Coruscant Cunning Datacron Location

This Datacron unlocks the codex entry - Galactic History 05: Rise of the Infinite 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:

The "Infinite Empire" was the name the Rakata people gave to their magnificent but ultimately flawed civilization--one that eventually encompassed more than five hundred known worlds. Their rise was fueled by their impressive technology, powered by what would later be called the Force. Using it, the Rakata developed the first known hyperdrives.

Slowly, the Rakata became corrupted by their power. They began enslaving entire species, including the peoples of Coruscant. The Rakata also attacked Korriban, ruled by the great King Adas. Although their attack failed to enslave the pureblooded Sith species, King Adas was killed. Without his leadership, Korriban was plunged into civil war.

The Rakata's slaves were put to work building monuments to the Infinite Empire's glory. Among the Infinite Empire's achievements was the Star Forge, a space station capable of producing endless droids and starships. However, the Star Forge was fueled by the dark side of the Force. Using it only hastened the Rakata's fall.

How To Retrieve This Datacron

Coordinates: X 1022, -1036

To reach this Datacron you will first need to go to the Justicar Territory on Coruscant. From here you'll want to run almost directly west to about the middle of northern Coruscant, coords are 1034, -1061 (Screenshots 1 & 2). Once you're here you'll want to scale the boxes directly in front of you up until you reach a pipe on your left (Screenshot 3). The jump right before where I am standing in Screenshot 3 was a difficult one. The only way I managed to do it without much trouble was to not stop running once I got on top the crate, jump to the box and then a running jump to the other crate.

Make your way up both of the crates here and onto the small pipe that travels along the wall (Screenshot 4). Now it's the hard part of this Datacron. This is the first Datacron I actually missed a jump on, I missed the last pipe a few times but once I made it, it was pretty much home stretch. You'll see three pipes in a row, you'll need to jump to each one in order until you make it on top of the one running over the hallway below. (Screenshot 5). Once you make it onto this pipe you'll want to follow it down to the very large pipe at the end (Screenshot 6).

Once you're on the large pipe you can get a good look at the Datacron across the way! (Screenshot 7). From here on out you really don't have to jump, from the big pipe to the other little pipe below you can simply just walk onto it. Once you're on the small pipe run across it to the ledge that the Datacron is on. Jump up then jump up onto the crate with the Datacron (Screenshot 8) and bam, you're all done!
