    Is it just me or are crystal shards almost impossible to get? Sure you can come across them sporadically from rats in the Cavern of the Discarded, but not reliably. I went to Ter Mur with my GM lumberjack and didn't get ANY after a couple of hours of felling trees. About 150 luminescent fungi, 500 bark fragments, 30 parasitic plants, a dozen brilliant amber, and ZERO crystal shards. I realize it's supposed to be a "rare" drop, but it seems a little too rare. Am I not doing something right? It's going to take weeks to get 10 of them from ratmen.

    But yeah, given the number I have, they must not drop very often.

    It's no problem I can get them on Baja. I've had more of them in the past but sold them every time I got to 10. Now i'm just trying to get a few in my stock of imbuing ingredients so I have them when I need them, but man- they're hard to come by! I think I actually have a better chance killing millions of ratmen in SA.

    I didn't even know you could get Crystal Shards from LJ?

    Rats drop so many different things it's hard to collect any one thing except Essence of Balance. I think I have about 280 of those :/ lol.

    I've spent countless hours lumberjacking in Ter Mur on 2 or 3 different Lumberjacks and have tried Gargoyles, Elves and Humans and find that it's near impossible to get them from chopping Trees....

    Agreed I gave up chopping wood after the first hour or two. The caveran is a much faster way to aqcuire the crystals, plus alot of other usefull items for imbuing.
