Gear Honing Sources


Introduction

Knowing where to obtain currencies and items like: Harmony Shards, Leap Stones, Destruction and Guardian Stone Fragments is crucial for progressing through item tiers. These materials are essential for the Gear Honing process. While Gear Honing Sources are scarce and easily depleted, there are ways to obtain them daily. So how does one go about farming these? Let's find out!


One Time Rewards

Clear story mode dungeons on Normal and Hard mode starting from Rohendel and onwards to get one time rewards in the form of Gherdia Elimination Rewards (Normal) and Gherdia Elimination Rewards (Hard). Utilize these to help your character growth. This can be done on all of your characters once.

Daily and Weekly Rewards

The main Gear Honing sources for most of these is provided through your daily and weekly tasks. Complete them every day to help build up the foundation of your character.

Chaos Dungeons

Each day you are given 100 Aura of Resonance, this is enough to get full rewards for two runs. Dismantle unusable leftover gear pieces and accessories for additional materials.
