Dismantle Items From Your Vault

You may have several Legendary or exotic rarity weapons when progressing toward the endgame. Selling these items after dismantling them yields 3-4 Legendary Shards based on their Ranks. Many players forget to check their Vault and clear the unnecessary Weapons or armor piling up in their inventory.

Season Pass Rewards

In the Premium track of Season Pass, when you reach Rank 20, you get a Legendary bonus Shard for Dismantling Weapons or Gears. Also, you get 25 or 50 Legendary Shards as rewards in Specific ranks with increasing Ranks. Above Rank 44, you earn 50 Legendary Shards; below it, you earn 25 Legendary shards. You can also make them by dismantling weapons or armor you made from Season Pass because these are primarily Legendary or Exotic tier items.

Decrypting Engrams

Another way of getting Legendary Shards is through redeeming Vendor Packages by increasing ranks with them, especially Tower Vendors. With every increased rank, each vendor rewards you a Legendary Engram, which on decrypting, gives you Legendary Shards. Additionally, decrypting Umbral Engram at Rahool rewards you Legendary Shards.

Trading Glimmer With Spider

Glimmers are another form of currency found in the game. You can exchange them for Legendary Shards from Spider, an NPC found in the game. Spider gives 20 Legendary Shards for every 100,000 Glimmers you sell to him.
