Seasonal theme of Season 25 - Shards of Souls and Sparks of the Hellforge

How does the topic work?  You can carry two splinters at the same time, one in the head and one in the weapon. They work like gemstones, but are much more powerful than any gemstone you have known before. Because they combine effects. 

  • There are three Soul Shards of the Great Evils that fit into your helmet sockets 
  • And four Soul Shards of Lesser Evils that fit your weapon sockets 
  • You can upgrade each soul shard three times, this works with exclusive seasonal items “Sparks of the Hellforge” - these are consumable  items
  • By upgrading you unlock the additional properties 

Where do you find the soul shards?  The new soul shards and also the sparks of the Hellforge can drop anywhere. With bosses, the chance of soul shards is greater. You cannot trade the splinters with other players, but you can recycle them at the blacksmith or use them in Caldesann's desperation. 

After the end of the season, you cannot take the Soul Shards or the Sparks from the Hellforge with you into the non-season.
