- Completion of Mender Ramiel's story arc (1 Incarnate Shard)
- Completion of the following Task Forces, Strike Forces, Trials, and Raids as a reward:

- Conversion of 150 Vanguard Merits into one Gr'ai Matter
- Random drop of Incarnate Shard from any even-con or higher enemy, of which four to eight can be used to form a new Component. Because the drop roll is per enemy, per person, an enemy might drop a Shard for every member of the team, making it possible (but not very likely) that a single enemy could drop eight Shards. Note that Shards do not drop from enemies defeated in the streets of or story content of Dark Astoria.
Destiny, Interface, Judgement, Lore

Components may be earned in Incarnate Trials as follows:
- Any enemies defeated during an Incarnate Trial have a random chance to drop Incarnate Threads.
- Successful completion of any objective during an Incarnate Trial awards all participating characters with an Astral Merit.
- No more often than once every 20 hours, successful completion of the entire Incarnate Trial awards all participating characters with 1 or 2 Empyrean Merits. Additional rewards during the 20 hour window will be reduced to an equivalent number of Astral Merits, or in the case of TPN Campus Trial and Minds of Mayhem Trial, 1 Empyrean Merit instead of 2.
- Upon successful completion of an Incarnate Trial, each character will be presented with an award table allowing them to choose one reward. The options available will either be all common Components, all uncommon, all rare, all very rare, or 10 Threads. There is a participation threshold that must be met in order to receive a component table instead of the 10 Threads "consolation prize". If a character surpasses the threshold, the Component reward is a random roll.
Additionally, components may be earned from the story arc reward window at the end of story arcs in the Dark Astoria content.
Threads can also be earned through successful completion of the following non-trial content:
- Apex Task Force (10 Incarnate Threads)
- Tin Mage Mark II Task Force (10 Incarnate Threads)
- Enemies defeated on the streets of and in any content for Dark Astoria
- Completing story arcs allows a choice of 10 Threads in the story arc reward window
Any of the Components may also be broken down into Incarnate Threads with the number of resulting threads varying according to the rarity of the Component being broken down. Threads are also available as conversions from Shards, at a 10:10 ratio plus 2.5 million inf once every 20 hours, and at a 10:5 shards to threads ratio plus 2.5 million inf at any time.
