Yep, the shards have two uses, but seven achievements associated with them. They are used to purchase furniture in the Private Rooms and to give to Trina when she requests them. The achievements are Key Master and Ace Assistant (gathering Golden Keys and completing Trina Quests respectively), Cozy Cubby and Furniture Finder (unlocking items in the Private Rooms and purchasing furniture respectively), Wizard (converting items into shards), Magic Miser (obtaining shards by any means), and Celebrate Together (unlocking items in the Anniversary Room specifically).
Except for Celebrate Together, which gives you the Joyful Anabel avatar at the third level, none of these give you anything but diamonds, and they all take a really long time to complete. Some believe that if you have any desire to finish the achievements, especially Key Master and Ace Assistant, you should stop leveling up at a relatively low level and concentrate on fulfilling Trina's requests, since they are much lower at those levels. This same school of thought applies to the DQ achievements; the DQs ask for fewer Airship items at the lower levels.
As for the Private Rooms, they are added during seasonal events, except for the original room and the Anniversary Room. Now that all the seasons have two rooms, and we have enough rooms and furniture to complete Cozy Cubby and Furniture Finder, I don't expect we'll get any more, unless there is another significant milestone like the 5th anniversary. Some have advocated for a summer-themed room to finish the set. However, many don't want a full event to go with it; just the room itself with maybe an HOS and a couple of achievements, as we saw with the Anniversary Room.
Thank you Astra! - I do hope that they open the anniversary HOS at some point (maybe on their next anniversary?) since I unlocked that room the other day. lol
You guys have given me a lot to think about...
I appreciate all the feedback and help!
I do love diamonds, but I'm getting bucketfuls playing the puzzle game every day many times during the day. :) So maybe I will progress in game and work to level up and slowly do Trina's quests and possibly the DQs as I go. Thanks for the warning that they get significantly harder to fulfill! That explains why a lot of my high-level friends' wish lists ask for airship items! I had wondered if maybe that was the case...
Just catching up to this thread! I didn't want to put the IB on my list because I thought that was for exchanging. I did shard some smaller items to be able to get the gold key to open the new spring room.
I put it on Twinkle game now. Trina really does suck those shards at a lower level game! BUT don't get people mad at me because that game can't send them back right now.
Twinkle is struggling with coins right now.. I am really just trying to get that game to the level to get the destiny keys so I can get the pets. Yes, a little OCD about pets.. Then I'll bugging everyone for destiny keys..
