- 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) (Possibly only late game or with item drop skills. Tested with an hour of farming while mid-game and they drop roughly 1 Scrap Magnetite every 50 Scrap Iron and no Adamantite whatsoever, even with rung bell.) (Confirmed to require the first item drop skill. Farmed without and got scrap iron, unlocked and got magnetite/adamantite. Additionally, using a Mibu possession balloon seems to significantly improve adamantite drop rate.)
- Rare/Very Rare Drop from Infested Seeker (Parasite). Requires Mortal Blade Deathblow.
