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.

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), and the more dangerous monsters in The Everfall will drop at least one Wakestone - carrying Dragon's Tears allow for additional Wakestones and Wakestone Shards to drop.

Shards are also sold by :

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.)



  • Not all the shard locations in Gransys will always have a shard - though some such as the heart at Hillfigure Knoll seem more likely or guaranteed.
    • 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.
