One of my favorite memories is that balloon with my friends :)


Made that trip many times, both before and after they fixed the Balloon de-spawn bug. Jumping off the balloon onto the crawler was always a heart stopping moment. Only to be followed up by the drop off the side onto the tiny ledge in order to get the red datacron.

What is really interesting is that you did not actually need to take the balloon ride for the two datacrons if you could get an Inquisitor/Consular to assist by pulling/pushing you onto the crawler. You could even help opposite faction people that way if you could get them to trust you.

I remember this taking a few attempts, either falling off if you stood in the wrong place getting to the end and jumping off at the wrong point.

These are now fond memory’s lol but hated it at the time.

Did they ever fix this thing? The random ‘suddenly appear on the ground after being on the balloon for 5 minutes’ was maddening back in the day.


I don’t know but I still have flashbacks.


Yes, it was fixed.
