Scrap Magnetite


Magnetic ore mined in Ashina,

Base material commonly used in Prothetic Tool upgrades of intermediate and higher rank.

Forging with magnetite produces a hard steel: a precious commodity in Ashina. Bedrock offering up this ore is constantly mined out, making it a rare one at that.

Scrap Magnetite is a special Upgrade Material in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. Scrap Magnetite is required for upgrading Prosthetic Tools, and the player will need to defeat specific Enemies in order to find it.

      With bell I got one in Hirata Estate from a guard on the first bridge. Maybe a fluke? It definitely happened.

        I think the earliest it drops is from the white monkeys in sunken valley. Its the only place where it is dropping for me right now. It is not dusk yet. I have killed genichiro, butterfly and folding. I dont have the bell but I have the 2 skills that increase drops.

          [spoilers removed] Go to the Old Grave Idol and turn around. Turn right and on the bridge is a spear monk. While using golden vortex (use the tanto if you wanna save emblems) I consistently get 4 scrap magnetite. Occasionally I'll get an adamantite scrap.

            > Near-guaranteed drop from the two spear mobs right outside the Main Hall idol in Senpou with the demon bell on (easy to farm with backstab and Bloodsmoke Ninjutsu) only drops scrap iron.

              It seems there are only drops of scrap magnetite in late game, because i try in all places where the people and guides say and only get iron scrap.

                I tried farming the purple guy by the Old Grave Idol, the run to the bridge is quick and as he jumps on another enemy from the roof i could get a backstap on him consistently. I used a mibu possession balloon for better drops, dont remember how many i got, but i got 6-7 slightly inefficient runs in, i think a more efficient balloon could get 8 or 9 runs in.

                  The spear monk near the Old Grave Sculptor's Idol drops two Scrap Magnetite every time I kill him. Spoilers below I have the Bell Demon buff active, no item drop bonuses from anything else, and have picked and finished the Shura ending.

                    I just farmed the blue samurai in ashina castle for at least an hour now, even with demon bell on, there were no magnetite scrap droped. Sure they don't only drop it later, when I got further in the game?!
