Ancient Relic Crystal Shards are valuable because they provide a method to obtain Memory Fragments.

 

Each Relic Shard gives about 1 Memory Fragment, when used to create a boss scroll.

 

Ancient Relic Crystal Shards are found on mobs in Calpheon territory. You can also obtain them from fishing in both fresh and sea waters.

 

Ancient Relic Crystal Shards are often called “Relic Fragments” and “Boss Scroll Pieces.”

 

Easiest Boss Scroll Piece

Of all the boss scroll pieces, Relic Shards are the easiest to obtain for new players. A bit of AFK fishing or low level mob grinding will give you 5 pieces to craft your first boss scroll.

After you have obtained 5 Relic Shards, you can arrange them in your inventory to create a boss scroll.

Make sure you have Auto Arrange unchecked.

Scroll Time Limit: 7 days

Relic Storage: Relics can only be stacked inside the Warehouse, consuming 1VT each. Scrolls do not stack anywhere.

Arrange Relics in a + pattern.

Ancient Relic Crystal Shards From Fishing

Get 5+ Relic Shards from AFK fishing overnight.

For those with low fishing skill and small inventories, it is best to fish where there is more low grade fish, which can be automatically deleted. (Make sure the option to throw away low grade fish is selected.)

If you have max inventory space, you can maximize your profits by fishing in areas that give more high grade fish. Max inventory allows you to AFK fish the entire night and make more silver because you can keep and sell the higher quality fish.

You can reduce your AFK fish bite time by utilizing “Abundant” waters and items like the Balenos Fishing Rod.
