If you have spent much time in the GW2 Bjora Marches map, you have probably accumulated a lot of Eternal Ice Shards. You may even have earned an Eternal Ice node for your home instance. Now the question is, what should you do with Eternal Ice Shards?
Exchange Eternal Ice For Map Currencies
For many players, the best use for Eternal Ice Shards is exchanging them for map currencies from other maps. This is particularly helpful for anyone who is working on the Skyscale collection.
The karma merchant Anette Eymundrdottir sells:
- 25 Kralkatite Ore
- 10 Difluorite Crystal
- 10 Inscribed Shard
- 10 Lump of Mistonium
- 10 Branded Mass
- 10 Mistborn Mote
You can buy these for 2,688 karma plus 75 Eternal Ice Shards.
Unlike other map currency vendors, there is no daily limit for exchanging currency with the vendor in Bjora Marches. However, the exchange costs both Eternal Ice and karma. A small extra price to pay for the ability to exchange as much Eternal Ice as you want, any day, any time.

After you finish the Idolatry achievement, you can buy this stat-selectable ascended accessory from the karma vendor Humble Stone. The accessory costs 56,000 karma plus 375 Eternal Ice Shards.
