For the First Time, I’m Out of Legendary Shards in Destiny 2

Inflation is hitting everyone pretty hard lately, and it turns out it’s extending into video game economies, too. Once a currency you couldn’t run out of if you tried, Legendary Shards have become scarcer and scarcer in Destiny 2 as of late. The culprit? Increased prices to focus gear. In Season…
