Just dropped to me from a Destroyer Crab at the bottom of the Volcano in Mount Maelstrom, waiting around for Megadestroyer. --Skekzyz (talk) 18:53, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

I believe they can drop from any and all dragon minions. So corrupted/icebrood, destroyers, undead(?). At least this is what I've gathered from reading reddit comments. -Darqam (talk) 18:57, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

Chak conspiracy theory[edit]

Soooooo does the Chak dropping these lodestones confirm they are in fact dragon minions!? I get this could be needing some drops in HoT maps; but lets keep up with the conspiracy shall we? Maybe new Primordeus minions? or even a brand new dragon? :D -Darqam (talk) 20:48, 11 May 2016 (UTC)

It's been a theory since HoT released that they could be the DSD's minions. Never taken seriously for some reason, despite the huge bandwagoning that sylvari being dragon minions got despite the constant counter-evidence (something that still irks me). If it were just about getting drops in HoT maps, they'd drop from the mordrem (they probably do all things considered). Why the DSD minion? Three reasons:
  • They come from underneath Tangeld Depths, and what's underneath? Huge aquatic tunnels.
  • They got tentacles, like DSD minion's "tentacled horrors". So do their nests (kinda).
  • Ebb and Flow drop from chak-related stuff, and Chak weapons certainly give a creepy vibe like most dragon weapons (e.g., mordrem weapons). Konig 20:58, 11 May 2016 (UTC)
Do Chak swim? I can't recall if I'd seen any in the tunnels but I was thinking they didn't. SarielV 20 x 20px 17:39, 3 June 2016 (UTC)
Don't see any, but then again they REALLY abandoned underwater combat in HoT (thankfully). Also sylvari being dragon minions was incredibly obvious --Gimmethegepgun (talk) 17:51, 3 June 2016 (UTC)
Well underwater combat did exist in HoT, you just had to go hunting for it under Tangled Depths and fight weak mobs with a permanent high ticking damage against you yeah ok...
Relevant to the question, there is no Chak that I've seen underwater, however given how some of them have wings to fly, and others seem to have 'uncontained' energy sources, I'd say water would not play well with them at all... but who knows. -Darqam (talk) 18:05, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

Another Source[edit]

I dropped one today in fractal. I can't remember which of these two, but it surely was 27 or 40.

27 is Snowblind which has Sons of Svanir and icebrood. Icebrood are known to drop them. Konig 20:16, 29 May 2016 (UTC)


Is there proof that they drop from Chak? 09:20, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

Is only one Usefull??[edit]

I Never used it so like i have [147 Unidentified Lodestones] Could i delete them or do they maybe have any value?

The item is primarily to move along the story, but I don't know if that is per character or per account. You're in a position to find out for yourself. If you have already turned one in, get on a different character and see if Ela Makkay offers Ley-Infused Lodestones or if she'll take one of the Unidentified ones from that guy too. After that, you can decide to turn them all in or throw them away. SarielV 20 x 20px 16:23, 12 June 2017 (UTC)
I can confirm they are not useful beyond the first. I tried on another character and got the same dialog as the character I used to turn in the first stone. Lunatic.6134 (talk) 04:04, 19 November 2017 (UTC)


There are two types of this item (two different links are shown in the infobox). Each type of lodestone is stackable with the same type, but they are not stackable one with another. The icon and description in the tooltip are exactly the same. What was the internal reason of existence of two different types, is not yet clear. -- 16:31, 2 March 2019 (UTC)

Anomaly Drop Verification[edit]

I just got one of these (one that doesn't stack with the ones usually dropped by "normal" enemies) from the Legendary Ley-Line Anomaly. There's currently a verification request on this drop source but I don't know how "verification" of such things work here, so I'll just leave this anecdotal verification and someone else that knows how to handle the confirmation can decide what to do with it. Kruhljak (talk) 15:26, 6 March 2020 (UTC)

I've updated the page. Thank you very much for verifying the information! Greener (talk) 16:56, 6 March 2020 (UTC)
It looks like the verify tag was requesting to see if Champion Coalescence from Defeat the coalescence to disperse the ley-line magic drop them, not the Ley-Line Anomaly. Konig (talk) 00:20, 7 March 2020 (UTC)
