Obtaining the Stones

New Vaults that can drop Stones

The new Seneschal Stones are obtained from a variety of sources. You can obtain them during your progression of the Season Questline. There are ways to craft them (more on this next). There are new Dungeons, called Vaults, that can reward them as well as the new Overworld activity - Arcane Tremors. Lastly, there is an Uber version of the Seasonal Boss, Malphas, that can drop Uber Unique Tuning Stones.

Crafting Stones

Shattered Stones are found while participating in the various new activities. Combining Shattered Stones with other materials at the Jeweler gives you an Uncertain Seneschal Stone Cache that rewards a single Governing Stone or Tuning Stone. If it is a new Stone, great, if you get a duplicate, it contributes XP towards leveling up that Stone. Each Governing Stone or Tuning Stone can level up to Rank 10.
