What Is a Starlight Shard?
A Starlight Shard is a non-craftable Consumable that restores 120 FP in 60 seconds (2 FP per second). You can only find up to 23 Starlight Shards per journey in Elden Ring. But don’t worry, you can carry them over to your next playthrough.
How to Use Starlight Shards
You can only equip 10 Starlight Shards at a time. Simply follow these steps:
- Open your Inventory
- Select a Quick Item slot
- Select Starlight Shards
While you may have the freedom to use a Starlight Shard anytime, here are the three best ways to use it:
- A Trading Item for Preceptor Seluvis’ Spirit Ash Shop during Mid-Game
- As emergency FP when you run out of Cerulean Tears Flasks
- An Item for Multiplayer Trade
All Starlight Shard Locations in Elden Ring
Only five of the nine regions in the Lands Between have up to three Starlight Shards to be found. Most Starlight Shards are placed near a Scaphe Sundial, which is an ancient device used to indicate the time of day. The following are all their locations:
|Region||Starlight Shard Locations|
