Mythril Silver.gif Mythril Silver is an advanced forgeable material found in Golden Sun: The Lost Age and Golden Sun: Dark Dawn.

Basic Description[edit | edit source]

Mythril Silver is described as "Legendary dwarven metal" in The Lost Age and as "Legendary phantasmal ore" in Dark Dawn. The resale value of the Mythril Silver is 1500 coins. The Mythril Silver can be rebought from a Vendor's Artifacts section for 2000 coins.

Locations[edit | edit source]

In all its appearances, Mythril Silver is generally found in areas that are only visited in the latter portions of the game. More specifically, Mythril Silver can be found in the locations listed below:

  • The Lost Age
    • Loho - When the cannon is activated, go to the south-west part of town where the dwarf use to be and use Scoop there.
    • Yampi Desert Cave - Requires Scoop
    • Dropped rarely by a Soul Army in Yampi Desert Cave. Felling the Soul Army with an offensive Jupiter Djinni increases the drop rate by four times.

Equipment[edit | edit source]

The Mythril Silver's main use is as a material that can be forged into highly powerful equipment by each game's resident Blacksmith: Sunshine of Yallam in The Lost Age, and Obaba of Champa in Dark Dawn. The range of potential equipment varies by game and is listed below.

Analysis[edit | edit source]

In all its appearances, Mythril Silver-forged equipment are fairly strong, with some pieces being among the best equipment in their games.

In The Lost Age, the Mythril Clothes are a slightly-toned down Valkyrie Mail, but can be worn by any Adept, while the Mythril Helm is an ideal piece of headwear for offensive warrior Adepts, and the Psychic Circlet has a very high PP recovery rate (sure to be useful to any Psynergy-centered Adept). However, the Levatine can be outperformed by weapons with unleashes that multiply attack power, and the Mythril Armlet is ultimately an inferior form of the Riot Gloves.

In Dark Dawn, Mythril Clothes retain their usefulness, while the usefulness of the Mythril Armlet has increased due to the lack of Riot Gloves. The Silver Longbow and Mythril Claws are fairly solid weapons for exploring the Eastern Sea, but are generally replaced by the end of the game. Meanwhile, the Levatine is now considered one of the most useful weapons in the game behind the Sol Blade and is generally the weapon of choice for Tyrell.

RNG Methods[edit | edit source]

As with all rare items, the Random Number Generator can be abused to guarantee a Mythril Silver after every fight. It is dropped by Soul Armies in the Yampi Desert Cave. They can occur in groups of one, two or threes.

For each of the possible scenarios, an example will be given.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Mythril Silver's description mentioning Dwarves in the English version of The Lost Age ("Legendary dwarven metal") is invented wholesale for the translation. The Japanese description (まぼろしの ぎんのこうせき, Phantasmal silver ore?) makes no mention of dwarfs.
