V Rising: How to Get Stygian Shards & Greater Stygian Shards

The full release of V Rising has several new additions including some new resources that are essential for various purposes. A couple of these new resources that players can get from a certain area are Stygian Shards and Greater Stygian Shards.

This guide will provide you with information on how to get Stygian Shards and Greater Stygian Shards in V Rising.

How to Get Stygian Shards and Greater Stygian Shards in V Rising

The Stygian Shards and Greater Stygian Shards are both rare resources and obtained from participating in and completing the Rift Incursion Events. These are the brand-new repeatable world events that become active every hour for 30 minutes in the new region called Ruins of Mortium. There are two tiers of these events and each tier rewards with a respective type of Stygian Shards.

  • Tier I Rift Incursion Event (Orange Rift) rewards with Stygian Shards.
  • Tier II Rift Incursion Event (Red Rift) rewards with Greater Stygian Shards.

The Tier I Rift Incursion event requires Level 57+ and as you clear each rift area with a flying shard, the shard will be destroyed and drop several Stygian Shards on the ground for you to pick up. Similarly, clearing rift areas with a flying shard in the Tier II Rift Incursion event drops Greater Stygian Shards. 

As you complete each event by defeating the final boss at the end of the event, the final shard will break and you will get a ton of Stygian Shards/Greater Stygian Shards depending on the tier of the event.

What to do with Stygian and Greater Stygian Shards in V Rising

The Stygian and Greater Stygian Shards are mainly used for various purposes. One of the main purposes is to trade with the new Vampire Merchants in the Ruins of Mortium region who will accept Stygian Shards/Greater Stygian Shards as currency. These new merchants sell ancestral weapons which can be turned into legendary weapons at the Ancestral Forge.

Apart from using the Stygian Shards as a currency, they are also used as a resource in the new structures called the Stygian Summoning Circle which allows you to summon a boss inside the Castle, and the Altar of Stygian Awakening which allows you to increase the passive bonuses for your learned spells.
