Not to be confused with Brilliant Eidolon Shards and Radiant Eidolon Shards.

The Eidolon Shard is a crafting component introduced in the Plains of Eidolon update. They are used in the crafting of The Quills' Magus, Virtuos Arcanes and Paracesis.

10, 20 and 30 Eidolon Shards are required as a sacrifice for Rank 3 (Adherent), Rank 4 (Instrument), and Rank 5 (Architect) of The Quills, respectively.


The Eidolon Teralyst, Gantulyst and Hydrolyst will drop one, three and five Eidolon Shards respectively regardless of whether they are killed or captured.
