The 断裂英雄剑 is a 困难模式 制作材料. It is not itself a weapon and therefore, cannot be swung, reforged, or placed on a 武器架. It is dropped by certain 敌怪 during the 日食 事件 that varies by platform. On the 电脑版, the Broken Hero Sword has a 25% (30.94% ) chance of being dropped by 蛾怪, which starts to spawn after all three 机械 Boss have been defeated. On the 主机版, 移动版, and 3DS版, it is instead dropped by 科学怪人s and 沼泽怪s, with a 0.4% (1/250) chance.
- Given the drop rate, it can be a good idea to use 水蜡烛s and/or 战斗药水s during a 日食, to increase the chances of having multiple Broken Hero Swords dropped.
- As of 18.104.22.168 it is more profitable to craft excess Broken Hero Swords into 原版断钢剑s, as long as you have a surplus of 神圣锭s.
