So I have read numerous threads around the interwebs asking how to obtain these but no real definitive answers.
I started in Girdania and over the course of a week have amassed a total of 43 lightening shards no crystals.
24 of those came in the 1st 2 days of leveling then 19 in the last day when I jacked all points into lightening element and started minning.
Is there any suggested areas where lightening is better dropped so I dont have to go spend my afternoon in a crap market looking for shards so i can level my crafting?
Im sure any feedback will help more than just me on this question.
