Here are some ways to spend your thousands of Legendary Shards efficiently in Destiny 2 before they get removed.

Last year, Bungie announced that it plans to remove one of the major currencies in Destiny 2 — Legendary Shards, with the launch of The Final Shape expansion. The decision was made to level the playing field between veterans and new or returning players, as some have an abundance of shards while others struggle to obtain enough to purchase basic items in the game.

While this currency will be completely removed on June 4, 2024, Bungie started this process with the launch of Season of the Wish last year, removing the cost for this currency from certain vendors in the game. Check out our article going over the list of missions, quests, and currencies entering the Destiny Content Vault with the launch of The Final Shape.

In this article, you will find ways to spend your hundreds, if not, thousands of Legendary Shards in the game.

How to spend Legendary Shards in Destiny 2 before The Final Shape

1. Phantasmal Fragments

Phantasmal Fragments is a material that you can exchange for Glimmer at Master Rahool. The good news is that you can buy an unlimited number of these materials at the Lectern of Enchantment on the Moon, right next to Eris Morn.

  • 1x Phantasmal Fragment: 10 Legendary Shards

You can get a total of 10,000 Glimmer for every 10 Phantasmal Fragments exchanged at Master Rahool.

Raid Banners

Another great way to spend your Legendary Shards is by buying Raid Banners from the clan vendor, Suraya Hawthrone. These banners are essential for running raids, especially during the Contest mode.

  • 1x Raid Banner: 3 Legendary Shards
  • 10x Raid Banner: 30 Legendary Shards

Banshee-44 Weapons

Every so often, the Gunsmith vendor, Banshee-44, offers a weapon that comes with a Tier 5 Masterwork by default. If you dismantle this weapon, you’ll get a guaranteed Enhancement Core. This is one of the best ways to spend your Legendary Shards for Enhancement Cores. 

The price for buying Legendary weapons from Banshee-44 is 7,000 Glimmer and 30 Legendary Shards. If you are low on Glimmer, you can acquire more from Master Rahool using your Legendary Shards. Keep in mind that these weapons are not always available, so it’s best to check our Destiny Bulletin outlet for updates on their availability.
