People have asked for stacking for 4 years but... it isn't needed.Shards are based on a trickle in, trickle out mechanic. Stacking would ruin that entirely and truly reduce them into merely a waste of bag space. Also, by enabling hoarding, it would encourage farming even more, which is not where we want to be headed. Having a limit to how many you can hold is integral to the mechanic.I'm not saying that more tweaks aren't welcome. There are situations where the "trickle in" breaks down a bit, or is at least more difficult. Changing Drain Soul to have a bonus when the target is under 25% is a good step. I'd like to see Drain Soul give an initial tick of damage when it is cast, or at least have it tick every 1 or 2 seconds instead of 3. There could even be additional ways to obtain a shard. But it should fit in the replenish-as-we-use-them mechanic.As for the Ritual of Summoning revamp. Great for raids, but I agree it will be awkward for single summons and should be an additional spell. I've also always thought meeting stones were kind of lame (maybe I was just envious of them competing with our summoning power). It would be cooler if graphically this spell appeared as the same portal graphic rather than a stone pillar.
