Barronite shards are shards that can be collected throughout the Ruins of Camdozaal, below the Ice Mountain. They are the fuel for the Sacred Forge and are thus currency for Ramarno's Shard Exchange store, which grants several different kinds of buffs while performing actions inside the ruins.
Four to six shards are gained per mining action. While Mining Barronite shards, you occasionally will get Barronite deposit as well which can be crushed on the anvil near Ramarno.
Barronite shards can also be used to fuel the Sacred Forge to allow entry to the Camdozaal Vault. Players can use the shards on Ramarno, and he will add a desired amount (player input) of the Barronite shards in one's inventory to the Sacred Forge. When players enter the Camdozaal Vault, 750 Barronite shards are deducted from the Sacred Forge.
A Barronite mace can be crafted by handing a Barronite guard, a Barronite head, a Barronite handle, and 1,500 Barronite shards to Ramarno. Note that the shards already stored with Ramarno in his shop will not count towards these 1,500.
