A Starlight Shard is a must-have emergency Consumable for Spellcasters. It can save you from running out of FP during a frustrating challenge. However, it also has other important uses that you’ll want to note.

    What Is a Starlight Shard?

    Starlight Shards.

    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

    Tarnished Equipping a Starlight Shard in the Quick Item slot.

    You can only equip 10 Starlight Shards at a time. Simply follow these steps:

    1. Open your Inventory
    2. Select a Quick Item slot
    3. 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
