Sword Art Online MD: Shards, Crystals and Holy Farming Locations


Here's a list of locations where you can farm Shards, Crystals and Holy Crystals, used for upgrading a character's attributes from the Attribute Matrix, and for upgrading Weapons, Armors and Accessories as well.

Daily Quests (Extra Quests)

Normally, you can farm them through Daily Quests, but since this event will only occur once a week, then you might want to consider farming them from the Story Mode for now (refer below).

Guaranteed Drops!

Non-Highlighted Item Drops

   - These are additional guaranteed drops that you can also get along with the highlighted Shards, Crystals, and Holy Crystals.
