 Where can I get a shard? The primary source of shards is players using Dismantle Guide on good swords and getting lucky. A secondary source of shards is buying them from other players, although the prices are all over the place, generally being anywhere from 30m-50m upwards. Where can I get a shard?

-Currently people seem to assume that the blade needs to be made of vizorium ingots or better and be dusted with 50-100 blues and 50-100 red or white, and then fully aged - some also suggest that the sword needs to be expertised and fully aged again.<​fc #ff0000> Update by Thoth: The metal does not have any influence on the drop rate, and the process has to return dust. means that 20 dust should be okay.</​fc>​+Currently people seem to assume that the blade needs to be made of vizorium ingots or better and be dusted with 50-100 blues and 50-100 red or white, and then fully aged - some also suggest that the sword needs to be expertised and fully aged again.<​fc #ff0000> Update by Thoth: The metal does not have any influence on the drop rate, and the process has to return dust.

 Anything else to know about shards? They add the same amount of TD as a dust for smithing purposes, and the visual effects don't carry over between GS and Expertise - if you want the "​trail"​ on the expertised stage then you need to add another shard / the shard into the expertise materials. Anything else to know about shards?
