EQ2 Icon Void Shard Guide for Tradeskillers

Adventurers have daily missions available to them in new dungeons and these missions have Void Shards as rewards. The Void Shards can be used to purchase armor and jewelry from merchants in the Moors of Ykesha but there’s a cheaper way.

Far Seas Tradeskill Missions have recipe books that have a chance of dropping from the final chest of the mission instance. These recipe books are not the same as the faction recipes for sale by the Far Seas Faction Merchant. The books are scribable by all tradeskill classes at tradeskill level 70 and offer level 79 recipes to craft the adventurer items using fewer Void Shards. Thus, there is a great incentive for adventurers to have their items crafted rather than to purchase them from the merchants.

A warning from the Denmother:

You must finish these items to pristine in order to receive the items. You must finish them to at least crude to have the void shards returned (and the base armor, when making greater pieces). If you cancel before the completion of the crude progress bar you will lose your void shards! Don’t cancel before you hit crude, even if you find out you’re making the wrong item for the customer. Finish the crude bar, then cancel, if you have to stop the creation process, or you will lose the customer’s void shards and have a VERY unhappy customer on your hands.

The Base Void Shard Armor and all Void Shard Jewelry is crafted using T8 harvests and Void Shards.

The Advanced Void Shard Armor requires the appropriate Base Void Shard Armor as well as additional Void Shards. The base Void Shard Armor must be unequipped in order to commission the items.
