Darksteel is one of the numerous available materials in Final Fantasy 16, which is specifically needed to craft the mighty sword, Gotterdammerung. Obtaining this rare material can be a daunting task for many players. So, if you are one of those players struggling to find this item, this Final Fantasy 16 guide will show you exactly what to do!

How To Get Darksteel In Final Fantasy 16

There are not many ways to get Darksteel in Final Fantasy 16 as it is one of the rarest materials. The only methods to obtain this crafting material are listed below:

By Defeating Thanatos


You can get Darksteel by defeating one of the A-rank Notorious Marks, Thanatos. But before you search for this enemy, remember to unlock it on the Hunt board, which you can access after completing the Brotherhood story quest. 

Thanatos Location Map

You can find Thanatos in Titan’s Wake, which is situated in the region of Dhalmekia. It can fire a powerful laser beam and jump into the air to come crashing down on you. When you defeat this menacing monster, you will get Darksteel as well as plenty of Gil, XP, Ability Points, and Renown.

By Defeating Prince Of Death

Another A-rank Notorious Mark that you can take on to obtain Darksteel is the Prince of Death. In order to spawn this enemy on the Hunt board, you must complete the side quest Under New Management II, which will be available after you have completed the first Under New Management quest.
