      Why can you hold so many of these? mind was already an undervalued stat, but this just makes it damn near useless when duping exists

        the one in weeping peninsula is just southeast of oridys's rise, up on a higher shelf of rock overlooking the sea, for those who can't/don't want to open the map. you should be able to see the astrolabe (the stone bowl looking thing) as you approach

        i promise i don't mean this in a *****y way, i'm sure the guide was just written when the game first game out and if it bothered me i could just make an account and fix it myself, but the description "near a cliff in the weeping peninsula" really tickled me. near *a* cliff. just, you know, the cliff they've got over in the weeping peninsula, there.
        the weeping peninsula is *all* cliffs. the entire peninsula is made of cliffs. there is not a speck of peninsula you can traverse that isn't somewhere near a cliff

          Should be able to buy as many as you want so normal players have a chance against cheaters after you've completed Seluvis Quest.

          Change my mind.

            I'm pretty sure I sold one of these early on because I just needed a tiny bit more souls to buy a new level or something... Really wish they wouldn't have let me do that.

                There are exactly 23 Starlight Shards in the world, and 1 is exclusive to Sellen's quest about Azur and Lusat (gained after finding the second one), making a total of 24.

                  Others mentioned it already, but these two are the same one:

                  "x1 Found in front of a stone astrolabe located in northeast Caelid. Close to Bestial Sanctum."

                  "x1 Found at a stone astrolabe northeast of the Farum Greatbridge Site of Grace."

                  I clicked the map link to make sure as well, the spot marked is the same place

                    "x1 Found at a stone astrolabe on one the cliffs in the east side of the Liurnia of the Lakes region, south of the Artist's Shack overlooking the fog-covered Academy Gate Town and Gate Town Bridge." It's way further from the Arists Shack than the Bridge site. Fast travel to the Gate Town Bridge site of grace. When you load in, look due east. The astrolabe this refers to is visible at the top of the cliff. There's a path nearby that can take you up there but be wary of the numerous white wolves all over.

                      I'm one of the suckers that used these to refill my FP when I was out of cerulean flasks but didn't want to reset at a grace checkpoint and do everything over. I just got lucky in that I happened to read the wiki for seluvis and his secret sex puppets before I used them all. I at least had enough left to buy the dung puppet ashes. I got the weird Y-Front wearing Jarwight for free and I can get Delores the sleeping arrow from Pidia's dead body after his puppets kill him so not a big deal.

                      Just because I got lucky though doesn't mean everyone will have learned there is a better use for the starlight shards than emergency FP refills before finding they don't have enough left to buy puppets from seluvis. There are ten listed as available a good way into Ranni's quest but I haven't gotten very far into that yet, and if access to that area is after giving her the fingerslaying blade it will be too late anyway, seluvis will be dead at that point. I can't see any good reason or excuse for not including any information about how rare these things are in their item description, or any hint about being currency for sorcerers. The description of "use to gradually recover FP" gives the impression that's all they are good for.

                      Just for some perspective, I have seven golden seeds that are worthless because I can't upgrade my flasks any further. Fair enough not being able to upgrade your flasks is a bigger deal than not being able to buy puppet spirit ashes, but how hard would it have been to leave a secret stash of these starlight shards somewhere for this eventuality, or just have a few more around to find before completing Ranni's quest line ?

                      • "special items", "non-farmable", "scarce currency", well, best I can do is 50 runes a piece lmao. Can they at least let us sell these once-per-run type of items at a reasonable price? There's so many items that can only be obtained in a limited number per run, but they're all worthless, price-wise. I wouldn't care about nascent butterflies, arteria leaves, starlight shards, etc. being obtainable in limited quantities per run if they would at least let us sell them at a decent price. I wager most players won't use the majority of these items anyways, why not let us turn them into a good chunk of cash? 10k per Starlight shard sound reasonable? Even that feels low, considering the supposed incredible scarcity of these items. It's kind of weird to see such a unique and rare item be on par with 2 1/2 regular arrows.

                        • "...these special items are also actually a non-farmable and extremely scarce currency for the special shop run by Preceptor Selvius."

                          So, if you are using them to restore FP, you are basically making a whiskey and coke with single barrel rye whiskey.

                            I believe the location of one of these isn't listed on this page. There is an astrolabe very close to where the Death Rite Bird spawns on the way to Castle Sol. It is on the cliff south of the Castle. On the northern part of the graveyard strip of land. I don't know how to get coordinates on ps4.

                                  It'd be nice if these gave FP based on a percentage of your FP bar, rather than a flat amount. It gives people with no FP investment infinite FP for stuff like BHS.

                                    Can't find the one in Farum. I don't see any astrolabe NE of the Great Bridge. Any Map Link or Screenshot?

                                      " It will automatically be taken back out of the storage chest and placed in the player's primary inventory when resting at a Site of Grace, so players intending to use them to purchase Spirit Ashes must take extra care not to lose them."

                                      or just, y'know, turn that setting off.

                                        With these being limited in terms of availability, this'll be the first FromSoft game where there was a magic bar and no way to permanently passively regenerate that bar. Demon's Souls had the ring, Dark Souls 3 had the gem you could mash into a weapon; neither of which gave good regen and in games where magic was a far less justifiable investment. I think the potential cheese in PvP could be easily enough remedied by making a fp version of the warming stone, or maybe have it apply a debuff to defence so it's way riskier to use in combat, perhaps both. As it is, it's a consumable that isn't worth consuming due to being puppet ashes currency. Even if you were never going to use them to buy the puppet ashes, they're not something worth factoring into a build because their limited availability disincentivises every relying on them.

                                          There’s a note there about how you can’t permanently store them in your chest because they auto-refill to your inventory.

                                          You can turn auto-refill off. When in “sort chest” just highlight the item and there’s a button for toggling it on or off. For PSX it’s R3.

                                            I feel like dlc will add a merchant with most of the currently non-renewable consumables. More incentive to purchase it.

                                              Today I learned these were free fp in my pockets. After all those times where things got hot and unnecessarily spicy when I ran out of fp. After I had already bought out Seluvis. Juat great. Now I have knickknacks and weapons and whatnot to restore fp. But man, sure wish I knew these were more than sex puppet currency.

                                              And yes, I am unable to read because my eyes and fingers were ripped off when I ran out of fp.

                                                If they made these unfarmable to hinder pvp use i feel like thats a stupid idea. I never got why these games that so heavily punish the player with death also has these kinds of items that are so rare you basically forget about them because theres never an appropriate time to use em. At least the rune things is awarded from helping as a summon, but with all the disconnection errors etc even that is a stupid way. Id say instead invadors cant use OP consumables but the host can, gicing the host some advantage against pvp veterans with builds tailored to obliterate in pvp. Make these kinda expensive but endless supply at some vendor.
                                                We already have wayyyyy to many consumables to keep track of. At leadt make the good ones reliable.

                                                  Organizing your builds/characters via save files and having a friend to trade you these is a decent way to get many of them. They don't really feel broken if used in most situations to me since they don't restore fp in a timely manner. If you chose to use these, they really only help you in dungeons or long invasions. In the case of invasions, they only really help you significantly when the player is able to be in a safe place and realatively passive. Being out of fp and under constant pressure is not going to make these very effective. Also the fact that people who dupe these will make it glaringly obvious that they had by using them poorly in the first place. Obviously ****heads will spam bloodhound step while abusing this, but these people generally aren't extremely troublesome if you have the tools for the eventuallity that someone is going to use this OU ash anyway, without duping starlight shards. I've used all 10 of my save slots for diffeerent ways to experience the game so I've just learned where they all are from replaying it. I give all my shards to a single character so that I streamline the use of the item. I don't see why such a useful item should just not be used.

                                                    Personally, I feel these are a bit too limited to make experimentation with weapon arts or sorceries worthwhile. I can understand the reasoning behind not wanting them to be infinite (Re Meta strats in PVP) however I do feel like it should be worth a bit more than a paltry 120 FP. I feel like a good balance between actually letting Mages or skill dependent players utilize these in PVE while not making them super commonplace in PVP would be to remove the duration. The effect lasts until you die, meaning you'll still be able to use it well enough in PVE scenarios, but relying on it too heavily in PVP will lead you to exhausting your supply

                                                      Gotta love invaders with a seemingly endless supply of these, Bloodhound stepping away to spell heal indefinitely. What a joke.

                                                      • DO NOT SELL OR USE THESE! They're used as currency with Seluvis for unique spirit summons, and they're otherwise utter dog fæces... Only worth like 50 runes and totally unrenewable, definitely recommend saving them in your chest until you reach Seluvis.

                                                            I really hate items like this in PvP, bc for normal players they are a strong but finite quantity item, but for others they dupe them infinitely and now have a limitless supply of what was meant to be a strong consumable that was balanced by being finite. I'd rather them solely be used for trading with Selevus and potentially other vendors.

Being able to access Manus Church means Selivus is dead, and you can't get the puppets from him, even his bell bearing wont allow you to get them. Don't make the same mistake I did.

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                • Anonymous

They should be farmable at Manus Celes that way they aren't farmable til you are finished with Rannis Quest that would make sense. Since they aren't farmable they just incentivize duping.

Rested at a site of grace about an hour later and I went from having only 4 to having 6 left. I didn't loot any of these during the dungeon.

                                                                                        • A consumable with limited supply per playthrough for the very basic function of restoring FP and also doubles as currency for an open world game. Terrible game design at its finest.

                                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                                            • I found two more that are not listed above: one is on the edge of the cliff south of Oridys's Rise, the other is on the edge of a cliff just east of the Hermit Village (nearest SoG is Primeval Sorcerer Azur, just head south-southwest-ish from there and look for the stone astrolabe).

                                                                                              • Anonymous

Since Seluvius becomes unavailable by the time you get to the Cathedral, you’re locked out of getting all of Seluvius’s ashes until NG+ if you used any shards as a consumable?

                                                                                                    Is there truly no way to farm or craft these?

                                                                                                    There are like 15 different ways for HP recovery in this game between spells, talismans, equipment, greatrunes, etc and only this, cerulian flask, a shitty FP recovery talisman and an axe to recovery FP.
                                                                                                    2 of which only work when killing multiple enemies.

                                                                                                    RIP any pure caster builds.
