Ilum Datacrons Guide

Ilum has three datacrons and two matrix shards, all of which can be found by both Imperial and Republic players. There’s a purple datacron hidden in an exhaustion zone, a green datacron hidden down some elevators in a crack of ice, and a purple datacron hidden deep in a cave in an ice crevasse. The two matrix shards are hidden in the Republic and Imperial bases.
