1. Hills of Barsoni

The first fragment spawns in the Hills of Barsoni. You can find it under the giant pink flowery tree in this region. Use Sorush to enter the inner root set of the tree to find the glowing fragment inside these roots. Stand near the tree before switching to Sorush because this gadget cannot move too far from its root.

2. Realm of Farakhkert

The second fragment can be found in the south of the Realm of Farakhkert. You can find a tree trunk on the ledge where you see NPC Zurvan you met in Vourukasha Oasis. This fragment spawns in an open place, close to the southmost Teleport Waypoint. Therefore, it's easy to spot the item after activating Sorush.

The Second Fragment
You can find the second fragment next to the teleport waypoint here.

3. Asipattravana Swamp

The third fragment spawns in Asipattravana Swamp. You can find roots and branches in front of the giant cavern. The targeted item floats under these big roots. There is a flower close to this fragment. You should stand right at the entrance of the cave. Use the teleport waypoint in the bridge connecting two mountain cliffs.

4. Tunigi Hollow

The last fragment floats above the tallest peak in Tunigi Hollow. You have to climb this peak from the right side. Then, switch to the Sorush to obtain the fragment. The distance between Sorush and its root is limited. Therefore, if you switch Sorush on the ground, the gadget cannot reach the highest altitude to catch the last lost fragment in this place.

The last fragment in Tunigi Hollow spawns in a high place.

Your characters cannot see the fragment with their eyes. Therefore, you need to use Sorush to spot these items.

Go to the inventory and equip the gadget before going to collect these items.
