Use a tek strider it is much better than any other thing on gen 2
Fjordur Ab Cave
Normalish rocks drop Shards. Magmasaurs do not seem to be able to havest them tho.
Can you actually substitute element shard for element??
Do not inhale this stuff,unless you wanna become Rockwell…
just asking if its possible too change the shards too element on ark. does the tek replicator help?
Fjordur , aberation cave , use mining drill on normal looking rocks . Thank me later
A great way to get this on Fjordur is to get 2 people one rides a giga in the front and the 2nd rides a strider behind the giga go down into the magmasaur cave and collect all of it with the strider it’s dangerous but works well. (get a dedicated storage box and link the strider to it before going to get element)
Mining drill does hardly anything. Use the Anky; or, if you have to use equipment, use a metal pick.
Example: mined the same area with each - leveled Anky and journeyman pick do about the same, but mining drill does about 40% less.
You can also find element shards in the abyssal depths where long ass skeleton looking thing is. Entrance is close to the swamp biome. You will need scuba gear or some way to maintain oxygen. Not recommended if you have thalassophobia.
On Fjordur in the Abberation cave are stones that drop Element shards, and the loot drops there are insane as well
On Fjordur, you can find it from the pink/red crystals in the magmasaur cave. Good luck!
Probably the best way to get shards is in Genesis 2 in that space area, just get a stryder and link it to a dedicated storage box and farm away.
In case of gen 2 ues magma its the best, it has a chance to get raw elements each time they hit.
For Crystal Isles, the mining drill does work but it’s very minimal. Tek Stryder is the best since it collects the most and has the best range so you can hit the crystals up high. I collect about 100 element worth in a short run.
Crystal isles use a stryder get thousands vs hundreds with an anky
It works on isles just gotta be right crystal but ank is still better
Using the strider to harvest shards on gen 2 in space will easily net you 1 million shards in about an hour. Using any other method of element grind is an absolute waste of time.
Mining drills do not works for element shards on crystal isles.
Mantises doesnt work on CI anymore. Why does WC hate CI so much. Mining drills, striders, and now mantises don't work. Sounds like they are forcing to get the broken map gen2
Stryders on gen 1 and gen 2 differences: on gen 1 you can farm element 24/7 but not much on 1x maybe 200 hard element per run (converted from shards). And with gen 2 you can only farm element when there’s purple drops but when you do you can farm easily over 1000 hard element on 1x(converted from shards) your welcome! - From T8 DumbDinosaurClub
