What are Night Shards used for in Disney Dreamlight Valley?

Night Shards are primarily used to complete quests. You will be asked to find them often but usually, it’s a smaller amount. Sometimes you will need to craft Purified Night Shards for a quest but that’s a rare occasion and shouldn’t be done as a common gift as it’s a waste of precious Dream Shards.

Thankfully, due to the smaller amount required for quests, you don’t need to hunt for Night Shards regularly. However, it’s always useful to have some in your inventory for when the time arises.
