Chaos Dungeons

Completing Chaos Dungeons will get you plenty of Harmony Shards, in two different ways. First there are the daily rewards, which you can claim twice a day. But even after you're done with those, you can keep playing through Chaos Dungeons, which will grant you certain rewards that you can exchange for useful and valuable items at the Chaos Dungeons Exchange NPC.

That means that you can trade items like Perception Shards for Harmony Shards. However, this feature is also time-limited.

Chaos Gates

Pay attention to world events like Chaos Gates. When one of them appears, immediately head over to a Chaos Gate that is close to your gear level as completing them will reward you with Harmony Shards.


Exchange Pirate Coins & Bloodstones for Harmony Shards

Like we said earlier, you can exchange items and currency for Harmony Shards. The best ways to do so, are by exchanging Pirate Coins & Bloodstones for Harmony Shards. You can use Pirate Coins to get Harmony Shards at traveling merchants in port towns. Bloodstones can be exchanged for Harmony Shards at the Bloodstone Exchange NPC in North Vern. BUT: you need to be in a guild for that.

Do Your Dailies

As usual, this is our number one tip. DO.YOUR.FREAKING.DAILIES. This goes for any MMO and Lost Ark is no different in that. In Lost Ark, the dailies are called Una's Tasks and doing them will grant you just so much stuff, we had to write a dedicated article on Una's Tasks in Lost Ark. Of course, completing certain tasks will also reward you with Harmony Shards.
