Dragon's Dogma Wiki

Wakestone Shard is an item available in Dragon's Dogma.


"A fragment ensorceled with arcane magick. Gather three together if you would restore the dead to life."

Wakestone Shards are red heartshaped fragments of the life restoring items known as Wakestones. Three Wakestone Shards are required to form a Wakestone and will magically assemble in the Arisen's inventory, but will not combine while in storage.

Duplication at The Black Cat will yield a non-functional Wakestone Shard Forgery.



Several Wakestone Shards are found in isolated locations around Gransys - the Shards will be renewed at their location if the made Wakestone is used. Using the magick item Dragon's Gaze will reveal Wakestone Shard locations on your map.

The possible locations are (only around six locations will have shards) :

A Shard appears near the Flameservant's Throne during the quest Reaper's Scorn.

Wakestones and Shards are common drops in The Everfall (Post-Dragon).

Bitterblack Isle[]

Shards are quite common on Bitterblack Isle, as well as being found in Chests throughout the Isle they can occasionally be found in broken boxes, and sometimes found lying around :

  • Duskmoon Tower, resting in a skeleton's hand in an elevated open cave area on east side of the open space.
  • Duskmoon Tower, head left of Barroch's initial location and climb to the very top ledge. Past the two weapon/armor piles and at the very end of the ledge. (May be inaccessible without a Double Vault or better.)


Shards are also sold by :


  • The Gransys shards appear randomly at only a fraction of the possible locations. Within one Arisen's questline they will only appear at the original locations.
    • Though Shards found in Gransys do not usually renew unless used, they will do so during Post-Game, even if they weren't used by the Arisen.
    • In New Game Plus they may appear at a different set of locations.
    • Some such as the heart at Hillfigure Knoll seem more likely or guaranteed.
  • In the The Everfall (Post-Dragon) creatures drop both Wakestones and Wakestone Shards - carrying Dragon's Tears gives more of these rewards, though the effect may only to be to increase the number of Wakestones dropped, not shards.
