The 斷裂英雄劍 is a 困難模式 製作材料. It is not itself a weapon and therefore, cannot be swung, reforged, or placed on a 武器架. It is dropped by certain 敵怪 during the 日食 事件 that varies by platform. On the 電腦版, the Broken Hero Sword has a 25% (30.94%) chance of being dropped by 蛾怪, which starts to spawn after all three 機械 Boss have been defeated. On the 主機版, 移動版, and 3DS版, it is instead dropped by 科學怪人s and 沼澤怪s, with a 0.4% (1/250) chance.
- Given the drop rate, it can be a good idea to use 水蠟燭s and/or 戰鬥藥水s during a 日食, to increase the chances of having multiple Broken Hero Swords dropped.
- As of 184.108.40.206 it is more profitable to craft excess Broken Hero Swords into 原版斷鋼劍s, as long as you have a surplus of 神聖錠s.
