Please do not post until I have finished posting. Thank you.

Greetings, folks! Having trouble finding some of the lightsaber Holocrons? Gathered here in one handy-dandy topic is a listing of the locations of all 18 lightsaber color crystals and the 7 lightsaber power crystals (you start with 1 of each, so really itĎs 19 and 8). Color crystals are listed alphabetically according to color, and power crystals are listed alphabetically in the section after color crystals, followed by a brief FAQ.

In order to quickly find what you need, press [ ctrl + F ] on your keyboard and type in the corresponding number (i.e. [ 2.2 ], [ 7.3 ], etc.), then press [ enter ] to jump to that part of the topic.

Please be aware that minor <SPOILERS> are present, in order to best describe certain locations.

1.1 - BLACK - Stage 9 - Death Star:

Found high atop a metal beam in the final area where all the laser beams come together. Drop all the way down, defeat the AT-STís, and use Force Grip to put the nearby generator in place to activate the anti-gravity lifts. Ride either one all the way to the top. Look above the ring of the highest central laser and youíll see the Holocron on top. Perform a double-jump, dash, dashing blast [ X X L1 (hold L1) O ] to jump to the top of the platform (the curved part) on either side of the Holocronís location (depending on which lift you rode up). Head up the metal beam and grab your Holocron!

5.3 - PURPLE / unstable - Stage 8 - Imperial Raxus Prime

After entering the large hangar, ride the elevator up in the back. Proceed a bit, enter a circular room, go up the ramp on the right and through the hole in the wall for this Holocron.

After progressing along the ramps and walkways in the carbonite area, look above you a bit before the final ramp to see a large pipe with a piece of machinery moving along it.

Section C - Frequently Asked Questions
==========


9.1 - How do I change the color and/or power of my lightsaber?

For Colors, press [ select ], choose [ Lightsaber ], move the d-pad or left analog stick left/right to scroll through the available colors. Press [ X ] to select the desired color. Press [ O ] to return to the previous menu, then [ select ] or [ O ] to return to the game.

For Powers, >, press [ select ], choose [ Lightsaber ], press L1 or R1 to go to the Power Crystal menu, move the d-pad or left analog stick left/right to scroll through the available powers. Press [ X ] to select the desired power. Press [ O ] to return to the previous menu, then [ select ] to return to the game.

9.2 - Whatís the difference between normal/compressed/unstable?

Normal - The standard style light saber.
Compressed - Has waves, or rings, of energy that quickly move along blade.
Unstable - Has a sort of blurry look to the blade, as if energy is slowly seeping off of it.

All three styles have the same power level. None are any stronger nor any weaker than the others. There is neither an advantage nor a disadvantage to using any particular color, so use whichever one you like most and donít be afraid to switch colors as often as you like

9.3 - I read your instructions but I still canít find color X or power Y. Where is it?

Are you sure you followed the directions properly? Certain locations were a bit tricky to describe, but I did my best to make them all understandable without giving away too many other details. Some environments didnít have any really distinct features to make them easy to describe, so I apologize if you found my directions to be lackluster.

Are you sure you donít already have it? Double-check your lightsaber inventory to make sure you didnít pick it up without taking notice.

Still donít have it or canít find it? Either make a topic asking for further clarification or check some videos on YouTube. If I failed to be of any help (sorry >__>), surely someone else can fill you in.

9.4 - Can I combine power crystal X with color crystal Y to make a new color?

No. Combining a red power crystal with a yellow color crystal will not make an orange colored lightsaber blade. Sorry.

9.5 - Is there a limit to how many times I can use any color or power crystal?

No, they do not have a limited number of uses. Change them around as many times as you like.

9.6 - Do they carry over to a New Game+ or do I need to collect them again?

Yes, all lightsaber color and power crystals DO carry over. After completing the game, select [ continue ] at the Main Menu to start a New Game+ with everything you collected in your previous playthrough, as well as all of your powers and abilities!

Well done, although elaborating a bit on the power crystals would be nice. For instance, someone may not immediately realize that Lorrdian increases automatic deflection, not just the chance of reflection when blocking.

Also, I demand you let people know that Sigil increases the power of non-saber lightning attacks as well, which makes it awesome. >.>
