— In-game description

Empyreal Fragment is a crafting material needed to craft ascended weapons and armor.


In most cases, characters must be level 80 to receive Empyreal Fragments from chests. Dungeons and some jumping puzzle chests (primarily those in level 80 zones, such as at Searing Ascent) award fragments regardless of level.
