Destiny 2 ascendant shards are among one of the most difficult materials to collect. Destiny 2 is known for its expansive collection of materials and currencies, each with their own purpose. However, while there is an importance to each, the ascendant shard may be one of the most vital materials for high-level players.  But what exactly are ascendant shards used for? And how can you build up your supply? Let's get into the how and why of Destiny 2 ascendant shards. 

  • If you'd love to look the part as much as have the gear to back it up check out our guide on Destiny 2 bright dust.  

Destiny 2 Ascendant Shards: What Are Ascendant Shards? 

Use Destiny 2 ascendant shards to buy exotic weaopns.

Destiny 2 ascendant shards are, as mentioned, crucial to the late game. That is because they are needed if you want to stock up on exotic weapons or gear. Amongst other materials such as the Exotic Ciphers and glimmer, the ascent shard is crucial to purchase exotic weapons from the vault. 

However, this isn't it's only function, as Destiny 2 ascendant shards are needed to upgrade your certain weapons and gear to masterwork level. You'll also need a bunch of Destiny 2 legendary shards and enhancement cores, so be sure you are stocked up on them before trying to masterwork your gear. 

Destiny 2 Ascendant Shards: How To Get Ascendant Shards

Play Crucible to earn Destiny 2 ascendant shards.

Despite being a relatively difficult material to stock up on, there are a number of ways in which you can earn Destiny 2 ascendant shards. You can only hold 10 ascendant shards at a time in your inventory and further 10 the Postmaster. However, the following activities should reward you with Destiny 2 ascendant shards: 

  • Crucible, Gambit, Vanguard Strikes, and Trials of Osiris Resets
  • Master and Grandmaster Nightfalls
  • The Destiny 2 Season Pass
  • Augmented Obsession Triumph
  • Dismantling Masterworked Exotic Armor
  • Season of the Lost Memorial

Completing any of the above events should gradually and eventually reward you with ascendant shard materials. However, if you have a horde of materials an additional solution is to purchase ascendant shards off of either Ada-1 or Banshee-44. We wouldn't entirely recommend it since it will tear through your resources, but if you are in the need for a final ascendant shard then the option is always there.

That's all you need to know about the Destiny 2 ascendant shards. Get collecting and maybe you can masterwork the Destiny 2 Epicurean when/if it returns to the game.
