Lucius buys shards for 1000 gp (tested on Antica just now after the update). I can't update the article however because the article is linked from the main page. Pimpo 11:10, November 16, 2010 (UTC)
Price at 2011
Must be discussed, this year you can give twice.xXxXx 07:10, November 15, 2011 (UTC)
Experience as of 2010 (need testers)
I added that it was 300*L but it apparently is not a linear function at all: a level 349 traded 15 to get 240k experience (80 experience per level per shard if we consider 200 to be the max still).
Could other players please check in-game? We need your level and experience gained per shard.
Note that you don't need to sell it, Lucius says something like "Do you want to trade your shards for X experience points?" so you don't lose them (and can test on multiple characters!) -- Sixorish 05:39, November 13, 2010 (UTC)
I used 10 Shards with my EK 184 ang got 552,000 exp, (52k exp per shard), so yes, its 300*L the formula. BUT mirade saids that L>200. So, if youre lvl 200 or more, L=200. That's why a lvl 349 got less points.
EDIT: O i see now, the lvl 349 should won 900k exp. Maybe this guy trade bugged shards, or maybe he reached the limit of shards and only changed 4 for exp and the rest for money. 4 shardsa at lvl 200=60k exp, *4 shards = 240k exp.
Anyway, im buying more shards and i post here the results :p

I think that for premium players with full stamina there is $ 300L*1,5 $
Well Sez i am level 220(40 shards gave to me lots of exp)
First i gave 30 shards(i'm not sure how many were in all chests, i lit every basin) at 219 level(i've got 1,8kk exp on green stamina as pacc).
At level 220 i gave 10(?) shards(from ms) and i got 1,2kk exp(still on green stamina)
I can't create any formula for that. I've got misguided on my calc, sorry.
I've tested it before. On lower levels there are $ 300L*shards $
However, if formula $ 200L $ for higher levels is correct then i've gained 1752000 exp
Anyway i've gained a bit more than 100% on my level bar

Ok, I tested it myself from 22 - 32, it is indeed fixed at 300L for some range. Let's assume that it's 300L for $ 0 \leq L \leq 200 $. We need testers for levels 201+ to figure out if it is linear or not above 200. -- Sixorish 22:35, November 15, 2010 (UTC)
Trading if event fails
Is it possible to trade midnight shards for experience points while the event is still running, or if the event fails? This page doesn't specify that.
Does that mean anyone can trade shards for exp, even players who didn't participate in the event?
Yes, I think so.
Confirmed: only players who lit at least one basin can enter the reward room and trade midnight shards with Lucius. :(
Mathias, you mean the Lucius that found in Kazordoon. Premium players that didn't participate in the event can still trade shards with the Lucius that is found in Yalahar (or Temple of Light?).
