I found the worst thing to get hold of is the shards, any good places to get those?

I'm having the same nightmare with shards as well. I got one yesterday for doing my 2nd public event on the moon and you can get 2 for breaking down legendary gear (but not the queens stuff).

Ascendant Shards are a pain to get.

There's certain things that give you a chance at getting Ascendant materials, which would be Ascendant Shards or Ascendant Energy:

Doing your first Gold tier public event for the day gets you a reward at the post master, which has a chance of being Ascendant materials.

Completing any further gold tier public events grants you a chance of receiving ascendant materials as an instant reward, but these aren't common.

Breaking down Legendaries is a good way of getting them....weapons give energy, armour gives shards (other than your class item)....I would also suggest wearing said armour and levelling it up, right up to the point where you need to use ascendant shards as I think it gives you more shards, I've certainly had 3 shards for a piece of armour a couple of times.

Buying and breaking down Exotic armour is also a good method as you're limited on what you can buy with all of those Strange coins and you can only wear one exotic piece of armour at a time...so buy up additional exotic armour, level it up and break it down for shards!

Another guaranteed method of gaining Ascendant materials is to do the daily missions and weekly strikes, but you only get the rewards for the first time you do it and you need to increase the difficulty....still, a good solid method of getting the materials and the higher the difficulty you can manage the more ascendant rewards you get.

You may also get Ascendant materials dropped when killing bosses or completing missions I think, but the other methods are far better.

And remember, this stuff is required for the highest level armour so don't expect it to be easy to get, it's not.

And for anyone out there who goes chest farming, keep your eye out for the MIDA Multi-Tool with its special side radar for locating loot chests when not in ADS (Aim Down Sight) mode.

The only thing I get out of any chests I open are green crap. Need helium filaments, spirit bloom and ascendant shards so will probably be fannying around doing patrol missions tonight.

Don't forget to do the daily/weekly missions on hard too, you can get more coins and ascendant materials from the harder levels.

Best method of getting ascendant materials!!

Daily on the hardest difficulty will give you two ascendants.

Weekly on hardest will give you nine coins which can be used to buy weapons/armour that can be broken down into ascendants.

I get at least one ascendant part a day when I play with @Skarpar he's like a good luck charm.

I do the Venus cave circle normally gets me all the other parts for guns and armour.
