Remnants of powerful items. Used to improve gear or trade for other items.
Legendary Shards are a type of currency which is obtained by dismantling Legendary and Exotic gear.
- Dismantling a piece of Legendary equipment yields 3.
- Dismantling a piece of Exotic equipment yields 5.
- Dismantling a Legendary cosmetic item yields 1.
- Legendary Shards may occasionally be obtained as an additional reward from Faction Engrams in quantities of 2 to 7.
Legendary Shards can be used to buy Exotic gear from Xûr, Legendary armor and weapons from destination vendors, mods and upgrade materials from Banshee-44 and other items.
Aside from that, Legendary Shards are consumed for upgrading weapons and armor, and restoring a Legendary or Exotic item from the player's collection.
