Shards of a Star are a new high rank crafting material in Assassin’s Creed Origins. You’ll need them for all the gear upgrades in Curse of The Pharaohs. There’s no quick and easy way to earn enough of them – you’ll have to farm them for a while. Our AC Origins Shards of a Star farming guide will help you by showing several good locations where you can find them.
How to get Shards of a Star?
If you need shards, your best bet would be to hunt either the giant scorpions (which drop two) or the pharaoh’s shadows (which drop three). Our favorite method is to go to the Royal Palace in the south of Aten and kill the three scorpions there. After you’re done with them, open up the quest menu and use the “Reload quest objective” option, and they’ll magically reappear.
If you find this too bothersome, you could also go to Aaru and ride around the fields there. You’ll get to kill a whole bunch of scorpions before you have to reload the objective, but there will also be a bit more downtime between groups.
