You cannot get any Shimmering Pearls, or upgrade materials that will upgrade your Weapon or Armor to VII as a Sellsword :(

Kinda lame. Sort of kills the whole point with multiplayer. :P
anyone knows the location of a pearl? I think theres one to get as a finding item. the drops are ridiculous hard to get.
You know, these cords would be usuful if I could actually know where those are, someone needs to change the whole cords thing and just type up where the hell they are

The wiki is correct: the best farming spot is indeed Mal's Floating Castle. But you need to invest into Willpower to increase the drop rate because it is incredibly small.

On my character with 120 item discovery (30 Willpower) I got 3 Pearls + some King's Orders in like 30 minutes. On a character with basic willpower I farmed at least for an hour and got no Pearl. The difference is huge.
Farmed with 139.6 drop rate got over 450k of salt. No pearls. Im calling bs.
I got two something pearls within 45 minutes from the two big guys at the bottom of the crypt of dead gods. I had on the choral ring and kisnet ring and minimal will pretty investment,.not too rare imo.
~200 runs on mals floating island crypt keeper at 97 item discovery (kismet + brightcoral ring)
around 400k salt

NO PEARL

Whoever reads this: dont fall for the same bait like me.
I have tried to have three pearls drop within the same seven consecutive kills of the Crypt Keeper (in Mal's Floating Castle). Along with farming about 250 total salt, I have gotten six-seven pearls and two King's Orders.
The drop rate on this char is 106 when wearing the Jester's hat. (103 without the hat)
Unless you want to farm salt and orders too, the best way to get this is to create an alt account, learn the Unspeakable Deep's move set, kill him as your alt, then summon your alt as a sells word on the char you want to give the pearl too, and just drop the pearl.
hey it can be found too near the boss fight with jester there is a down plate form where there is one O .O
The best spot is NOT at Mals fortress. The best spot is in the crypt of the dead gods, right before the Kraekan Dragon boss fight. There is a shrine (not the sanctuary) above the Crypt Keeper. Getting to it is tricky, but I'll try to write out the steps the best I can.

0) Stock up on bells of return.
0b) Put some offerings at the sanctuary. I recommend guide (item find), leader (salt boost), and merchant (gold boost)
1) Unlock the shortcut to the left of the sanctuary.
2) Go down that short cut and keep going left.
3) You will be right above the ledge that leads to the Forgotten King boss fight. Do not get confused and think I meant to go into the screen that the boss fight takes place.
4) Walk off the ledge then dart to the right. You will have to do this fast, or you will fall to your death.
5) Head right through the room with the two gravewalkers
6) Continue right and jump/dart to the platform with the item sack in the middle. Jump and dart right again and you should jump right into the shrine.
7) Rest at the shrine the fall to the left and you will be face to face with a crypt keeper. Kill it then bell back.

This is the fastest turnaround time to get to the crypt keeper. It is also an excellent place to farm gold, salt, and orders.
Ok, that's wierd. I farmed in the Mal's for Lord's Orders for like 15-20 minutes. I got only 1. But I got 2 Shimmering Pearls... But for now i don't have use for them
