Sacred metal fragments detail.png

Sacred metal fragments are items dropped in the Battle of Lumbridge world event. 1000 of them can be combined with rare equipment components dropped in the same manner to create cosmetic equipment overrides.

The fragments from The Bird and the Beast and these fragments are separate items and could not be used in place of new ones when creating overrides for current events, nor do they stack with one another. They also could not be used to unlock older overrides from previous events.

During the Battle of Lumbridge, they were obtainable by killing NPC soldiers of the enemy faction and are dropped in quantities of 1 to 20 or by performing skilling actions while silver nodes were present. During the final few days of the Battle of Lumbridge event, there was one mining node right outside of the Saradomin camp that stayed metal permanently. They were used to create the following overrides:

Sacred metal shards are now dropped via divining, healing convoy members, building and tearing down buildings.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Until the seventh week of the Battle of Lumbridge, starting Monday 2 September 2013, only up to a maximum of 10 sacred metal fragments were dropped or received from skilling at a time.
  • After a system update, which first introduced bonds, there was a glitch where one of the divine tear rocks (closest to the Saradomin camp) was active in the form of a sacred metal rock for an indefinite period of time. This meant that players could acquire an unlimited supply of sacred metal fragments as well as mining experience. An in-game update was soon applied to fix this glitch. However, it was discovered and confirmed by numerous Mods that this was in fact not a glitch, but an intentional feature which was originally released too early. So on 30 September, this indefinite rock was intentionally brought back as a final treat.
    • The addition of an inexhaustible sacred metal rock in the last two days of the Battle of Lumbridge provided players with an excellent source of mining experience. As a result, dozens of players at any given time mined away at the rock, each of them being left with many thousands of sacred metal fragments—more than they could have ever needed to complete the six available weapon overrides.[1]
