|Quest item||Another Slice of H.A.M.|
|Destroy||Drop (You drop the artefact and it rolls back to its original place in the ground.)|
|Examine||A piece of ancient goblin armour.|
The armour shard is a quest item used during the Another Slice of H.A.M. quest. It is one of the six artefacts obtained during the first stage of the quest by digging in the unfinished train tunnel in Dorgesh-Kaan using a trowel.
When the artefacts are cleaned using a specimen brush one of them will turn into the armour shard. This must be given to Tegdak the goblin along with the other cleaned artefacts (a shield fragment, a helmet fragment, a sword fragment and an ancient mace).
Players cannot cast alchemy spells on them. If a player attempts to do so, the chatbox will state "This ancient artefact resists your magic."
