Sort of reminds me of the artifacts in Rift, though it sounds like the character impact is going to be bigger. I will collect as I level, pickup what i missed once Im maxed.
Ahh the rich lore is overwhelming before I even play.
I'll try to find them while I level (as others said), but if I can't .. I'll come back, no doubt.
I think with Datacrons, I'll probably go with the flow of my guild. I'd like there to be a "discovery" feeling... kind of like when we were looking for holocrons in SWG. It's nice to get that nice shock when you stumble upon something cool.
We'll see, though. Depends on the effect that they have.
I'll be picking them up when I can while leveling. Once I reach max level I'll venture out again to try and pick up ones I missed.
I'll be picking them up after I hit max lvl, and keeping track of the ones that I've aleady collected just by chance so I don't waste my time!

"The crystal is the heart of the blade. The heart is the crystal of the Jedi. The Jedi is the crystal of the Force.
The Force is the blade of the heart. All are intertwined. The crystal, the blade, the Jedi. You are one.
I'll snag all of the ones that apply to my SI, because I love free ability boosts
I also think that people will eventually find out where datacrons are on neutral/open world pvp planets and try to fight that spot. Personally I think this is an added bonus on open world pvp planets.
The Codex is going to be amazing, it would be nice if there was a released video on the codex too. 100k+ words ...
I sort of wonder how long it took a (team?) group of people to collect that info and incorporate it.
Codex? What is that exactly? Unless its under DNA, then just PM me where you hear it Karteli. <3
I did ;-; I skim too much, that and a sinus headache makes for fun times.
Don't use non-native English speakers for a video you intend to have a mass audience. Her cadence and lack of sophistication with big words was stilting and choppy, and difficult to listen to.
personally im going to collect them while leveling so I can find them all by 50.

Also, thanks Karteli for the kind words <3
Relating to datacrons, Larry Everett of Massively gave a beta review / reveal of TOR, including some information about datacrons, exploration, and how they are found. One location that is talked about is somewhat of a spoiler but gives some insight to what players would be doing. I like the idea.
I expect to grab the datacrons and what not as I find them, but I don't think I'm going to research them too much. I'm looking forward to exploring the galaxy, learning the lore, and just having fun with the game.
Maybe when I hit level 50, and so do guildies I'll go for endgame content or for some of the more intricate campaigns. But the Datacrons and related are to be found as I come across them, I don't think I'll search them out until I've played for sometime.
BTW, I like the video, nicely done.
I really hope they add more stuff like the Datacrons but with less impact on player power and more as collectibles, just like Rifts artifacts. If you get all artifacts in that game, holy shit! Anyway, I have absolutely no problem with Datacrons affecting player power, as long as it's a non-issue getting them all. It will just be one of those "collect all in an hour or two when max level using a guide and then forget about it". That's not collectibles, that's just running around the world getting them all, not by choice since it affects player power and it'll be expected you got them all for high-end raiding guilds. I really wish they add something like the artifacts in Rift. It's an incredible system for vanity.
Loved the video btw, keep up the good work.
