How to Farm Blood Shards in Diablo 3?

Defeating Rift Guardians from Normal to Torment I difficulty will drop the same amount of Blood Shards, and this chance increases with every difficulty above Torment I. For extra Shards, you can hunt Blood Thieve, a version of Treasure Goblins that can only drop Blood Shards. In Greater Rifts, the amount also increases with Rank and is generally higher than in normal Rifts, so this is by far a more reliable method for farming Blood Shards.

You were usually able to carry a maximum amount of 500 Blood Shards, but after Update 2.2.0, you can extend that limit by 10 after you beat a new rank of Greater Rifts. This extension can stack up infinitely.

And that’s it! While you’re here, you can check our Diablo 3 Tier List and our Season 25 Release Date guides.
