Yup, found this out the hard way, heh. The game needs an internal 'refresh' of some sort. I wound up setting everything to 10 and then selling 1 of each to Dominique.LoreDood said:Guys, you're doing it the hard way.
If you want to modify the Grade/Stock/Amount of a shard, you can do so, but the game only recalculates if an event causes the amount of shards to change. Examples of such events would be acquiring a shard or selling it, and the game is programmed well enough that even if you were to have more shards than the cap, it won't crash of glitch.
So all you gotta do for most shards is set the value to 10 and sell 1 in the shop, boom, instant Grade 9 with proper calculation.
Some shards cannot be sold, so unfortunately there is nothing to be done about these unless someone manages to create a script to modify which shard we obtain when killing a monster or can trip the trigger that makes the game recalculate. That is the case with most shards obtained from beating bosses, however if you must have a grade 9 version of it, you can get another in NG+. So you'll have to set it to 8 and play again.
There is one exception to the natural rule of Grade 9 and that is Shortcut, that is the only white shard with an actual grade, but you can set it to OFF then adjust the grade to 7 and turn it to ON in order to immediately unlock all shortcuts.
One other thing you might want to watch out for is passive/yellow shards, when they go up to Rank 9 they turn into skills, which means you can benefit from them without even equipping them, however should you still equip the yellow version of the shard, you will benefit from double the effect, at least in the case of stat shards, some of them do not stack however.
Hope this info helps, and thanks for the tables.
Miriam really truly becomes BROKEN OVERPOWERED once all the Passive shards are mastered. Clearly it was never intended to be easily reached as this game w/o any cheats is Dawn of Sorrow tier grinding to 100% all.
