Basic Description[edit]

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]

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
  • Dark Dawn

Equipment[edit]

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]

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 Claw 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 Method[edit]

In The Lost Age, the drop rate of many rare items, including the Mythril Silver, can be guaranteed by taking advantage of the game's Random Number Generator. This involves taking certain actions during a battle in a specified pattern; once such method is detailed below.

First, go to Yampi Desert Cave, and do a hard reset by saving the game, then turning it off and back on. After restarting the game, walk around the the player should encounter a Soul Army and one other enemy. If not, reset the game until both are encountered. For this RNG method, the player should ensure that the attack order is Felix, Jenna, Sheba, then Piers.

Round 1

Felix casts Quake on Soul Army
Jenna casts Beam on Soul Army
Sheba casts Whirlwind on other enemy
Piers casts Tundra on other enemy

Round 2

Felix casts Quake on Soul Army
Jenna casts Beam on Soul Army
Sheba unleashes Whorl on Soul Army (Soul Army dies)
Piers attacks the other enemy (other enemy dies)

If performed properly, the player will acquire Mythril Silver at the end of the battle.

Trivia[edit]

  • Mythril Silver's description mentioning Dwarfs 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.
