Golden Sun Universe


Golem Core.gif A Golem Core is a piece of forgeable material in Golden Sun: The Lost Age. It is described as "An Earth Elemental's heart". It is found in various areas after the Great Western Sea is accessed, such as in Loho, and it can also be dropped rarely from a Bombander in Anemos Sanctum (fell it with Mercury Djinn to increase drop rate by four times). Being an Artifact, it can be sold and later repurchased. It can be bought for 1500 coins and sold for 1125 coins.

Golem Core weapons are strong, though ideally you would have even better weapons than those by the endgame. The Chronos Mail and Titan Gloves can be worn for their strong defense ratings and good HP increases but there are far better endgame alternatives.

Random Number Generator methods[]

Here is the RNG method for how to get the Golem Core.

Golem Core can be dropped by Bombanders in Anemos Inner Sanctum. Standard rules apply.

Party order: Felix, Jenna, Sheba and Piers. Order of attack: Sheba, Jenna, Felix and Piers. Save the game anywhere in Anemos Inner Sanctum, turn off the Game Boy through and reconnect it. Stay runarounds site. You must first find a Bombander and another monster, if you do not find a Bombander, turn off and turn on the Game Boy again and keep trying until you find one.

Round 1

Sheba casts Shine Plasma! Large arrow: Bombander

Jenna casts Aura!

Felix casts Mother Gaia! Large arrow: Bombander

Piers casts Glacier! Large arrow: Other Enemy

Round 2

In the second round, put Jenna and Sheba to defend.

Felix attacks! Large arrow: Other enemy

You felled other enemy!

Piers unleashes Gel! Large arrow: Bombander

You felled Bomband!

You will receive the Golem Core.
