Prismatic Shards in Clash of Beasts is an item that you can use to unlock a specific beast when you perform a summon. If you do not use a Prismatic Shard you will be randomly rolling on a beast summon to try and get them to unlock, which can take several attempts and waste precious Soul Shards in the process. This How to get Prismatic Shards guide will tell you how to get them.
As Prismatic Shards guarantee you summon the beast you want they are worth your while tracking down. The most effective way of acquiring them is to work through the events in Clash of Beasts, specifically the quarterly Seasons. These will enable you to obtain Season keys which you can then use to unlock Mythic Beasts, which are the best creatures available in the game. As you work your way through a season you will be rewarded with Season Tokens, the further into a season you progress the more rewards you will earn, and one of them will be Prismatic Shards.
Another way in which you can get Prismatic Shards in Clash of Beasts is to participate in the Events when they appear. Events are only available for a limited time, so you need to access them as soon as possible. This means being attentive to the in-game notifications you receive, so you know when they are happening.
You will be able to make use of the Prismatic Shards you earn at the Forge providing you have the correct beasts unlocked, and they are at the appropriate level.
