The fruits you find randomly in Blox Fruits aren't useless; they are essential to the gameplay. Apart from awakening Fruits, obtaining weapons is also an integral part of the game. The problem is that many players do not know what to spend to acquire new weapons.
This is where Fragments comes in.
Shards are a new currency introduced in Update 11 (2022). Not only do you need shards to get new weapons, but you'll also have them to thrive in the Second Sea and complete other tasks. With this massive need for shards, you'll need a reliable way to farm them.
Read on to find out different ways to get more shards in Blox Fruits.
What are shards in Blox Fruits?
As mentioned, Shards are a currency introduced to the game in Update 11. Shards are used to:
Some items or weapons can only be purchased with shards. These items include the Kabucha gun, the Flower Ship, and the Dragon Breath fighting style. According to the article, you may also need Beli, the main currency of Blox Fruits.
- Wake Up Your Fruit Blox
You need to spend over 10 shards to fully awaken your Blox Fruits, depending on the fruit. You can get Blox Fruit from random drops or buy them from certain NPCs. By awakening them, you unlock new abilities to use in combat or exploration.
You can reset your stats by finding Plokster. He is usually on the bridge between the Green Zone and the Kingdom of Rose. However, you have to pay him 2 shards for the reset. Additionally, you must be over level 500 and be on the Second Sea/New World to qualify for a stat reset.
In The Café, you can pay 3 Norp Fragments to change races. The change, however, happens randomly and you cannot choose one in particular. You can become Human, Skypian, Fishman or Mink. However, you cannot switch for the same race, so you have a one in three chance of getting the race you want.
Microchips are for playing in the Order Raid and have a cooldown each time you buy one. You can buy them from the Smoke Admiral for 1 shards.
- Buy the Death Step fighting style
This new fighting style was released in Update 13. It's an upgraded version of Dark Step, but you need to spend 5 shards and meet other requirements before you can purchase it. Phoeyu the Reformed sells this fighting style.
Sharkman Karate is the humorously named fighting style sold by Daigrock the Sharkman. It costs 5 shards, and that's after completing several tasks before you can buy it.
- Buy Enhancement Color Layers
Talking to the Enchantment Master lets you buy colors to layer on your upgrades. Regular colors cost 1 shards, while legendary colors have a price of 500 shards.
- Change your race to Cyborg
The Cyborg race will become yours if you pay an invisible NPC 2 shards. It is a defensive and energetic race. Before getting the Cyborg race, however, you need to beat the Law Raid.
Crews are similar to clans or guilds in other games. Any crew can have a maximum of 25 members, and slots don't disappear if a member leaves. However, if your crew is running out of space, you need 2 shards to buy more slots.
How to get shards in Blox Fruits?
Getting shards when you reach the second sea and reach level 1 should be your priority, although you can get them before. Let's take a look at the different ways to get shards.
Blackbeard is a Boss you summon using a Fist of Darkness. After dealing damage equal to 10% of his health, you will gain 1 shards. You can only fight him once every four to six hours.
Since Blackbeard is level 1, we recommend that you prepare before fighting him. Losing does not reward you with shards at all.
Sea beasts are an enemy summoned by the Tide Keeper boss. Each sea beast you kill earns you 250 shards. That's half of what it takes to awaken a Fruit's first skill.
Grind raids can yield up to 1 shards if you win. Running out of time will still give shards, albeit a lower amount.
- Beat anyone with a YouTuber title
If you happen to defeat a YouTuber in battle, you get 250 Beli and 000 Fragments. However, they must first have a bounty on their head, and not all have this reward for losing.
Sometimes events allow you to get more shards more easily than usual.
If you own Robux, you can exchange them for shards in the in-game store.
The grind never stops
Fragments allow you to purchase essential items or awaken your Blox Fruits. This is why many players above level 1 tend to spend most of their time in the game working for themselves. The rewards you can get from shards are worth it.
