Blade Shards

The other night after fractal daily/recs were done, I was opening my chests when I noticed I had 133 Blade Shards in my bag (https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Blade_Shard) and I have no idea how I got them. Aetherblade was one of the daily fractals, but the wiki doesn't mention them dropping in that instance, and of all the times I've done Aetherblade, I never got shards (or at least this many). The Druid in my group said she got 99 shards as well.

Has something changed? A bug? Queue twilightzonetheme.mp3

    To quote the wiki:

    Dropped by Aetherblades: 1-2 (small chance of 10)

    You may not notice them because they get deposited into your material storage, along with most other crafting materials.

    I guess? I have the sprocket node in my instance so I've been accumulating them from that, but I never noticed these coming off the NPCs in that fractal. I'm not complaining really, as I discovered I now had almost 700 of them, so I went and crafted the bladed back piece up to exotic. When I get 500 more I'll turn that into ascended so it can look pretty in my bank (lol)

    That's CM only though, and while we did 99 last night, it wasn't CM.
