Scrap Magnetite


Magnetic ore mined in Ashina,

Base material commonly used in Prosthetic 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.

      Seems to be a very rare drop from normal Ashina troops if you have Demon Bell on. I farmed the two by the Ashina Outskirts Stairway idol and they would give me one every now and then.

        The two scary dudes outside Senpou Main Hall. Without bell, you get Scrap Iron and rarely Scrap Magnetite. With Bell, Scrap Magnetite and rarely Adamentite. Results will vary depending on how far you are.

        There are multiple strats here:

        Noob strat: sprint in a straight line to the point between the two. Backstab the right one, collect items while going back to Idol.

        Normal strat: Blood smoke Ninjutsu. If you have, use Ceremonial tanto to save on emblems first. Then do the same as above, but activate Ninjutsu and backstab the second one.

        Peace strat: Golden vortex. Use tanto if you have. Ready the vortex at the door, sprint and release. Backstab one if possible, collect items and retreat.

        Chad strat: combine Golden vortex and bloodsmoke ninjutsu. Sometimes it can fail to get a backstab but you still get the items from vortex.

          Can be farmed after killing the boss of Ashina castle without demon bell from blue-robed sword enemies between the Ashina castle anteroom & dojo sculptors' idols. Killing the ~8 enemies on the same floor as the anteroom idol gives around 2-3 per run for me without mibu possession balloon.

            Best spot to farm: Senpou temple - Main Hall. You need the bell demon on you to have it as a guaranteed drop from the twin blade guys just outside. Lock on to the one to the right, RUN to him. You will have to time the R1 buttonpress to backstab him. But you'll get the hang of it. Then use the bloodsmoke ninjutsu, sneak behind the second one, backstab and run back to idol. Rest, repeat. Nets you LOTS in a few minutes. You even earn spirit emblems, which you can improve further by using that ceremonial blade to give you +5 spirit emblem for vitality.

              My favourite spot wit up to 5 Scrap Magnetite per ~35 seconds Setup: - Late Game - Castle has been invaded - Ashina Castle - Old Grave idol - Spear Monk - Use of golden Vortex - Bell Demon active The run: 1. From Old Grave idol turn around, up the stairs, kill enemy on the left first 2. Charge Vortex immediatly 3. Avoid Monk's Perilous Attack 4. Use Vortex from behind, then kill Monk My Stats: Vit 17, Attack 8

                There are three mobs outside Senpou Temple - Main Hall wearing grass outfits and big hats (1 patrol, 2 back-to-back). With both Virtuous Deeds, or one Virtuous Deed and the Demon Bell, they drop mostly scrap iron with a rare chance of scrap magnetite. With both Virtuous Deeds AND the Demon Bell, they drop mostly scrap magnetite with a chance of scrap adamantite. Their drops can basically be "toggled" via the Demon Bell.

                    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.

                            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.

                            • 02 Apr 2019 14:17  

                              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?!
