farming for stardust slivers (+1-3) tips?

I'm wondering if anyone else is having trouble finding enough slivers to enchant your rares at/near lvl cap (29) and if not, where you're finding them. i've got my chest at +2 and have plenty of shards to get it to +4 or 5, but i had an unlucky streak and failed to get it to +3 twice, so now i'm out of slivers. same goes for my weapon. anyway, i've been farming drasilmarsh solo trying to get more blues to salvage or slivers themselves, but i'm not having much luck. i'm a lvl 27 punisher, and haven't been able to kill the sub bosses in bitterstone core yet, so dm is all i got. i'd also be interested to hear what blues everyone is getting to drop in which dungeons and off which bosses, i'm still looking for some rare shoes too, and the ah prices are ridonkulous. any other farming tips would also be greatly appreciated.

you get 4 red and 5 green from questing a new class to lv20 (including lv15 puzzle reward which req. you to hit lv20 to get the red shard reward).
if you're lucky, you can get more from 4x card boxes from questing + random mob drop.
it takes 3~4hours max to hit lv20. so at worst case scenario, it is 1red+1green per hour @ 100% rate.

it might be faster if you can dual but im not going to discuss that.

calculate your own shard/hour rate in drasil/tunnel lv2 and see which gets you the best return compared to making a new character.

if you can make at least 10g+/hr by camping the AH, then you can opt not to make a new character and buy it in the AH since a green shard cost approx. 10g in the AH. im not sure about the price on red shard in AH

TL:DR
1 - make new class
2 - hit lv20
3 - mail main gear and enhance
4 - ???
5 - profit

On my server greens are around 10g and reds usually fetch about 20g.
I'd also like to find a good way to atleast procure base slivers and shard so I can upgrade my mount.

for 4-6 base, i have yet to find a good way of obtaining it.
im too lazy to get another class past 20. hopefully someone else would run the numbers.
the best choice of obtaining it at the moment is through supply box daily. but it is only once a day.

as for 7-10, AH is the best choice at the moment, it is dirt cheap @ 1g~ for green. not too sure what to do about red.

thanks for the input guys, one thing i'll add about the 4-6 (shards) there's a daily in caer (the open pvp zone) that gives a box as a reward that has either a red or green shard. i've only gotten green ones so far, so either i'm unlucky or the red ones have a lower chance of dropping. i don't remember which quest it is for sure, but i think its the escort that happens at 40 after the hour.

I later stages in the game their are some quests and dailies that give you shards.
