You can get Guardian Shards by doing Tier 2 Chaos Dungeons in this game. It is best if you level up your character to level 50 as it will allow you access to this Tier of the Chaos Dungeon along with the others. There is no particular task to do here, just focus on eliminating enemies and taking any Shards you get. Your goal should be to challenge the Tier 2 Dungeon at least thrice or more. As your attempts increase, other rewards you receive reduce, so the frequency of you getting Guardian Shards increases.
