How to get Shaper’s Orbs?

Players acquire Shaper’s Orbs by collecting Memory Fragments and giving them to Zana. Memory Fragments are found by killing the bosses of Elder-influenced maps circled in purple on the Atlas. To acquire the final five Memory Fragments, you must defeat the four Elder Guardians with the Elder occupying a red-tier map, then defeat the Elder.

One Elder’s Orb can be obtained from the Epilogue quest after collecting all 15 Memory Fragments and defeating the Shaper. It upgrades a map of any tier into a tier 16 map.

The Shaper must be kept alive.
  • The more common memory fragment is always given first, e.g. completing a T13 map with an Elder Guardian before completing a T13 Elder-influenced map will drop fragment 8 (VIII) instead of the Guardian specific fragment.
  • Memory fragments are collected in the Book of Memories at The Templar Laboratory (Epilogue). The page numbers correspond to the fragment numbers in the table above.
  • There is currently a bug where the map tier of the Elder also defines the status for all Elder Guardians, so only the red tier Elder is the deciding factor for being able to get Memory Fragments from Elder Guardians, not the individual map tiers the Elder Guardians actually spawned on.
  • Please note that the quest tracker simply displays the amount of memory fragments you’ve found so far, it does not tell you the (roman) memory fragment number you will find next. The fragments are numbered based on the Shaper’s Orb they result in, which does not correspond to the order you find the fragments in. In particular, if you’ve only collected the ten fragments from Elder-influence, you have collected fragments number 1-8, 10 and 13, and the quest tracker will show 10/15.

End of league transfer Shaper’s Orbs

  • Shaped maps will carry over if the equivalent level Shaper’s Orb hasn’t been used on parent league; if you already shaped a map of the tier the parent league takes preference.
  • If a specific level has already been used in the parent league, it will be removed from the character’s inventory.
  • If you have the same in both parent league and temporary league, both Shaper’s Orbs will be removed when you use either.
