Spirit Shards are a system of equippable upgrades found in Ori and the Will of the Wisps. Many are found by exploring Niwen, others can be purchased from Twillen, or or received as rewards for completing certain side quests.

Once found/purchased, some spirit shards can be upgraded to higher levels, providing more benefits.

Ori can only equip as many shards as they have Shard Slots. These too can be found throughout the game world, through completing Combat Shrines. Initially, the player can equip three Spirit Shards.

There are a total of 31 Spirit Shards for players to collect.

Lupo sells a Shard map for 4,000 Light which highlights the locations of all the remaining Spirit Shards on your map. Collecting all the Spirit Shards will unlock the Shard Hunter achievement.

+ indicates the Spirit Shard can be upgraded. Need about 13000 light total to upgrade all upgradable Spirit Shards.
