The quickest and most common way to get the star fragments is by observing them from the Dualing Peeks. Fast Travel to the Shee Vaneer Shrine. On the right side of the shrine is the Dueling Peaks.

Now, get to the top of the peaks and light a fire regardless of what time you visit. Sit by the fire to wait until the morning. Now, again light the fire and sit by it and wait till the night falls.

When night arrives, the star fragments in Zelda BOTW will start to fall toward the east end. Star fragments will randomly fall into the different locations between 9:15 PM to 2:55 AM. This will happen every night regardless of the moon’s phase or color.

Star fragments will fall where the direction of your camera is. Wait for the star fragments to fall in a location. Once you see one fall on the ground, immediately turn your scope and mark the location of the star fragment on the ground.

Moreover, the star fragment will produce a huge burst of golden light before it impacts the ground so keep tabs on its drop site by using your scope in Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

It is important to note that the Star fragments falling into the water will disappear immediately. To avoid that, keep your camera frame to the right so that star fragments will fall in the Hyrule Fields in Zelda BOTW, away from the water.

Now, go to the nearest shrine to the star fragment’s marked location and collect it. Remember to collect the star fragment before 5:00 PM; otherwise, they will disappear. Collect as many star fragments at night until 5:00 AM and repeat the process.

Using this strategy, you can farm as many star fragments as you want in The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild.

So once you have acquired the star fragments you can earn some quick buck by selling these for 300 each. You can even use the Star fragments for cooking purposes as using these in your dishes will result in increasing the value of those particular dishes as well.

However, the star fragment will serve you well if you use them in other things which would include upgrading your armor in Zelda Botw. 

These include different items such as the Ancient Greaves, Topaz Earrings, Ruby Necklace, Diamond Tiara, Sapphire Circlet along with other amiibo items in Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild.
