Soul shard limit

Postby Meneltel » Thu Jul 27, 2017 8:03 pm

Ive noticed a limit to the number of soulshards I can have. 32. I remember in classic and early TBC on retail of no limit (was needed in the early 40man raids on MC when I had to summon late people SS the cleric and hand out healthstones one at a time to people who didn't use them). Was wondering if that was put in by Blizzard or if something you have done to help limit lag or something. I have a smaller 12 slot soul bag in the bag holding 12 shards (in case I run out and forget) which leaves me only 20 I can carry (have a 16 slot soul bag on me). Since I only get them from mobs that give me exp or honor and they tend to hit hard and all demons BUT the imp cost a soulshard and even Enslave Demon uses one, It would be hard for me to solo to gain a soulshard if I don't have a tough demon to tank for me.

So curious as to why the 32 shard limit that wasn't there before in classic time. Would you clarify why the limit, if you can?

Hello Meneltel!

Are you saying that you are limited to 32 soul shards because of the amount of space you have between your soul bags? Or that you can only have a total amount of 32 with all of your bags?

I believe you can make bigger soul bags with the tailoring profession. You can get the pattern for a Soul Pouch (20 slot), from "Shreev and Vizzklick" <Tailoring Supplies>, in Gadgetzan.

At 375 Tailoring you can learn to make the shadoweave soul bag (28 slot), from "Lina Bruder" <Shadow Weave Tailoring Specialist>, in Dalaran.

Hope thats what you were referring too!

32 is the limit shown on the soulshard itself as they are unique (so a limit of 32). I had 12 in the bank and so could only make 20 to be carried on me in my personal bags. Any more and I was told I could not make anymore. I ended up moving the 12 in the bank onto my bags so now I can hold them ON me instead of in the bank. But I would like to be able to have more than that if I need them. I know there are larger soulbags, even though not a tailor, but I plan to pvp with my lock and so I will need to carry LOTS of soul shards for my better spells and minions require them. 32 wont be enough until I get the hang of pvp as a warlock again.

Used to PvP as a warlock. 32 is more than enough unless you keep summoning your pets over and over again for no real reason. And better spells....Hmmm...enough for "those" too.
Besides, farming shards is not that hard, most of the time it can even be done out of convenience during pvp or let's say, in a "duel" while waiting for an arena que.
Simply put, i don't see a reason for an increase as the current 32 shards is more than enough for anything within reason.

I feel the same way. I like to keep backup in the bank as well in case I am in a hurry. So it would be nice to have more.

Soul shard limit to 32 was set by blizzard, not wow-mania so it's unlikely to be changed. I think it favors warlocks in the long run, as this way, their guild/raid leaders can't demand them to carry more than that.
