Yes, that's right. You can get shards from the accessories tab on the marketplace. A lot of accessories can be melted, and yield some really great loot. Here are the main six accessories you can melt for shards, plus the other stuff you can expect to get from melting them: Ancient Guardian's Seal 1-2 Sharp Black Crystal Shard, ~0.67 Pure Gold Crystal, ~10.90 Melted Gold Shard Necklace of Good Deeds 1-2 Sharp Black Crystal Shard, 2 Hard Black Crystal Shard, ~10.92 Melted Platinum Shard, 1 Polished Opal Witch's Earring 1-2 Sharp Black Crystal Shard, ~3.45 Melted Gold Shard, 1 Resplendent Ruby Ancient Weapon Core 1 Sharp Black Crystal Shard, ~0.71 Pure Gold Crystal, ~0.73 Pure Silver Crystal, ~8.58 Melted Gold Shard, ~11.10 Melted Silver Shard Bensho's Necklace 2 Hard Black Crystal Shard, ~11.83 Melted Platinum Shard, 1 Resplendent Sapphire Scarla Necklace 1 Hard Black Crystal Shard, ~1.05 Pure Platinum Crystal, 10.96 Melted Platinum Shard, 1 Resplendent Sapphire Here's my melting data. Bonus is the average value of the bonus mats without taxes (non-shard stuff from melting). Hards are valued at 1.6m despite the current price being lower. In addition to the above you can melt Ogre Ring. AFAIK it gives 2 guaranteed sharps, however I lack the sample size to confirm that. Also, you might be curious about Mark of Shadow. Don't bother, it doesn't give shards at all.
