Blade Shards to Watchwork Sprockets.

I have about 3000 Blade Shards.
Can we get a reverse mystic forge recipe to turn them into Watchwork Sprockets?

    The opposite would be better, Since the blade shards are account bound and you can buy sprockets at will.

    @Bravesole.2684 didn't know the recipe. Thanks.

    You can buy equipment bags 1 item in each from the fractal lobby.
    They cost100 each and you can buy 5 a day so thats less then a weeks worth of blade shards you have there mate.

    I'm not seeing the recipe to actually turn them into sprockets there?

    What sleep is here? What dreams there are in the unctuous coiling of the snakes mortal shuffling. weapon in my hand. My hand the arcing deathblow at the end of all things. The horror. The horror. I embrace it. . .

    That's the opposite, it makes more blade shards, not less. I too would like some practical use for Blade Shards.

    100 shards for around half a sprocket :)

    I just drop them as i mine them
    I mean, when you're done with the backpack its just clutter.
    I wish anet would give them 1c value so i can sell all junk on the vendor instead of personal destroying them
    Edit: you can trade them for 1 green item per 100 now, so thats about half a copper per blade shard in value.

    Do people not read responses anymore.
    There is a value to them now for 100 of them you can buy a bag with 1 random gear inside it from one of the cat golems in fractal lobby.

    Equipment Bag

    Double-click to open. Contains a single piece of masterwork or better gear.

    Now that they can be deposited I would only need to deal with them every couple of months.

    With so many blade shards you can make another backpiece.
    Though i'd like a way to turn them into sprockets too, that would be nice.

    Wow, that'll help me a lot as I have several stacks of the things.

    Yeah, but changing them into sprockets would be far more useful. You can craft runes and whatnot with sprockets.

    Maybe ... ANet being ANet means the recipe would probably be something like 250 blade shards, 1 mystic coin, 1 master salvage kit, and something else that gives maybe 30 sprockets.

    Haha maybe. :sweat_smile:
    Or better yet... Timegating!!! Anet loves needless timegating. :smirk:

    Change shards into bags, open bags, salvage, sell the mats. Use the funds to pay for sprockets.
    Oh right, I hear the objection already:

    Buh buh buh... it will take 500 shards to afford just 3-5 sprockets!

    Sure, and any direct shard → sprocket exchange will probably be less generous still.

  • Just a comment. The merchant won’t exchange Blade Shards for an equipment bag unless you’ve first done the Nightmare Fractal

    Be careful what you ask for
    ANet might give it to you.

    Good point.
