Crystal shards are items that can be obtained through participating in various activities within Prifddinas. These are necessary to create and charge various crystal equipment through crystal singing, and also can be used to create enhanced crystal keys for the Elven Crystal Chest. Each crystal shard added onto a piece of crystal equipment provides 100 charges, up to a maximum of 20,000.

Value[edit | edit source]

Although crystal shards and crystal dust are not tradeable, divine potions created from crystal dust are tradeable. Each shard provides 10 dust, and one dust is used per dose of potion created. While a high Herblore level is required to make each potion, only 0.5 Herblore experience is granted per dose created. Note that the current prices of these potions may not accurately reflect the actively traded price due to extremely low creation and supply volume of certain potions and thus are frequently used as scam items.

Another way of getting value out of crystal shards is to use them to upgrade a crystal key into an enhanced crystal key, which unlocks the Elven Crystal Chest. Upgrading a crystal key requires level 80 in Crafting and Smithing, requires 10 crystal shards and gives 500 xp in both smithing and crafting. The chest will on average return 45/16 crystal shards and give 52,751.03 in loot. This means that the average profit per crystal shard is 4,277.29. Compared to Divine super combat potions, you are spending -91.14 Gp/xp in smithing and crafting combined, or double that for one of the individual skills.

Obtaining shards[edit | edit source]

If a player receives a shard along with a collected resource, while only having a single free inventory space, the crystal shard will be dropped to the floor instead.

Exchanging seeds[edit | edit source]

Players can also obtain crystal shards by exchanging various crystal seeds with Amrod, who is found in the Hefin Inn.
