Magical Shards are used to upgrade Jetina PEN Boss Gear and Jetina PEN Accessory. They are also used to craft other items like Manos gear and crystals.

Magical Shards are primarily obtained by heating Sealed Black Magic Crystals and certain yellow-grade Black Magic Crystals.

As of patch 5/25/2022, yellow-grade Black Magic Crystals now drop as Sealed Black Magic Crystals. Sealed Black Magic Crystals are stackable in your inventory, making them easier to store and process.

Jetina insists on using up all Magical Shards! Perhaps a little fire from my BMC melting will warm up her cold greedy heart! haha! 🙂

Magical Shard via Grinding Spots

Many grinding spots drop Sealed Black Magic Crystal, which can be heated to obtain Magical Shards.

Since Sealed Black Magic Crystal is a rare drop, don’t forget to buff Item Drop Rate. For example, use an Item Collection Increase Scroll.

Centaurus Herd (Lower AP)

Centaurus Herd is one of the best grinding spots for Magical Shard for those with around 180 AP because it has an above average drop rate for Sealed Black Magic Crystals, which you can melt for Magical Shards. But it also has other desirable traits.

  • Sealed Black Magic Crystal: 17 / hour
  • Yona’s Fragments: 9 / hour (3 Yona’s + 1 Centaurus Belt)
  • Scroll Written in Ancient Language: 16 / hour
  • Black Stone: 84 / hour
  • Caphras Stone: 24 / hour

Unfortunately, Centaurus Herd does not drop Atanis Element, the pity drop for Infinite Pots. However, it makes up for this by having other decent drops and good silver per hour for its difficulty level.

Primal Giant Outpost (Mid AP)

Primal Giant Post is the best grinding spot for Magical Shards if you have around 280 AP. But it also has other desirable traits.

  • Sealed Black Magic Crystal: 20 / hour
  • Crystallized Despair: 6 / hour
  • Scroching Sun Shard: 8 / hour
  • Black Distortion Earring: 1 / 3 hours
  • Black Stone: 204 / hour

Primal Giant Outpost offers good silver per hour just from the trash loot. Crystalized Despair is used to upgrade top tier Alchemy Stones like Vell’s Heart. Scorching Sun Shard is used to upgrade Godr-Ayed Weapons and Marni Sniper Rifle.

Cyclops Land (High AP Dehkia)

Cyclops Land is the best grinding spot for Magical Shards. However, this location requires high AP and DP.

  • Sealed Black Magic Crystal: 28 / hour
  • Dawn Earring: 1.5 / hour
  • Black Stone: 192 / hour

The greatest benefit to Cyclops Land is the Dawn Earring that drops here, which really boosts its silver per hour. This is one of the best places to grind for silver.
