Sloth Shard is one of the 7 nether shards from Forbidden Magic representing the 7 deadly sins. It is dropped by mobs that die in Nether due to fall damage, traps, or are killed by "fake player" entities such as Combat Golems, Autonomous Activators or Melee Turtles. Various traps or grinding mechanisms can be set up to achieve this, the simplest of which is to set up a large platform in the Nether over solid ground and push mobs off it.

Thaumonomicon Entry[edit]

"Strange energies swirl through the Nether. On occasion, they have been known to solidify into crystal shards when certain sympathetic events occur.

These crystals are imbued with different vices and have many uses for more unscrupulous Thaumaturges.

There are seven documented types of nether shard, each attuned to a different "deadly sin".

Wrath Shards crystalline around acts of violence. The more excessive the physical force used, the more likely it is for a Wrath Shard to appear.

Sloth Shard congeal when proxies and accidents are used to collect resources without effort.

Envy shards are taken from those who have them by those that covet them.

Pride shards materialise when a creature of truly great power is cut down to size.

Gluttony shards crystalline when someone feasts.

Greed Shards appear when enchantment is used to turn a profit."
