      why is this game so stingy with these? You have to stick with a weapon early game... if you find a better one you're screwed because you can't upgrade it!

        It lists a crystal lizard as dropping them, but not ogres... does that mean that it is possible to farm them from that crystal lizard? Or just the ogre's drop rate is so poor that it's not worth mentioning?

          Got one to drop from the ogre in the river in the Forest Of Fallen Giants, near The Crestfallen's Retreat bonfire

            Why do they have more enemies that drop large shards than ones that drop regular ones, makes no sense to give so many ways of getting tier two when they’re supposed to be rarer

              Keep finding weapons I'd love to test out, but can't upgrade them because I'm not able to buy more yet. Was mislead into using more titanite shards to try out different weapons since I was able to buy large titanite shards so early on.. I played DSR and DS3 extensively and in those ones it's actually incremental which shards you can buy. The way it's set up in DS2 is annoying and doesn't make much sense. Why let people buy as many large ones as they want and then limit how many regular ones can be bought until way later in the game? Oh and farming isn't too reliable either unless you want to use a bonfire ascetic

                In SotfS at the "Crestfallen's Retreat" Bonfire. The Big Ass Troll drops Titanite Shards. Guranteed on the first kill. About 10% probably.

                  I think you missed an area in majula that contains 3 titanite shards, in the map keepers home in majula, there is a chest upstairs that contains 3 shards.
