In Remnant 2, Spectral Blade requires Eidolon Shard, 7 Lumenite Crystals, and 650 Scraps and can only be crafted at the McCabe store. These items can be hard to get and are time-consuming, especially Eidolon Shard. However, the following text will help you gather all the required items.

Lumenite Crystal

Lumenite crystal is an Upgrade Material in Remnant 2. To upgrade special weapons, players use Lumenite crystals, which are considered high-value items and can be extremely difficult to obtain.

 Source 2  The Reward for defeating Elite enemies and Aberrations

Cass is the merchant who sells Lumenite Crystals, and you can find her in Ward 13. Ward 13 is the central Hub in Remnant 2 and contains most merchants. Three hundred scraps buy one Lumenite crystal.

Defeating Elite enemies rewards Lumenite Crystals. A stronger enemy equates to a higher chance of dropping Lumenite Crystals upon their death. Aberrations are a more potent race of enemies; thus, they have a higher chance of dropping Lumenite Crystals.


In Remnant 2, Scrap is important for crafting and is the main currency. Players will need scrap for nearly anything and everything; you can use it to upgrade Weapons, buy Items, and craft with other Materials.

 Source 3  Destroying breakable objects
 Source 4  Opening chests

To obtain Scrap faster, you should equip Scavenger’s Bauble. This amulet increases Scrap pickups by 50% and automatically gathers nearby crafting materials. However, you can also increase your Scrap count by playing the game in Adventure mode.

This mode lets you replay worlds. Therefore, any item doubles you collect, except weapons, gives you scrap in return. This mode has higher Scrap drop density. You can also equip Vacuum Seal Ring, as it increases the automatic scrap pickup range by 100%.

Eidolon Shard

In Remnant 2, Eidolon Shard is a crafting Material. Defeating Sha’Hala, Spectral Guardian rewards Eidolon Shard. He is found on the world N’Erud.

Sha’Hala is from the race of the Phantom. It is a creature with a giant triangle face, horns, and a long tail. To start the boss fight, you must gather 3x Seeker Keys to unlock the Sentinel’s Keep tower.

Seeker’s Rest, The Hatchery, and Astropath’s Respite are the places with the keys. Sha’Hala’s weakness is his own Orb. Attacking the orb grants critical damage. To help you fight, his attacks and counters are as follows.

 Attack  Counter
 Hand Beams: Sha’Hala spawns hands that shoot beams.  Keep an eye on levitating hands to avoid beams.
 Horizontal Beams: Spawns orbs that shoot horizontal beams in a pattern while three hands shoot lasers at you.  Recognize patterns and therefore dodge accordingly.
 Homing Orbs: Spawn’s green orbs that slowly start moving toward you.  It can be easily shot due to the orb’s slow movement.
 Ascending Orbs: Green Holes start Appearing on the ground; after that, orbs start coming out of them, moving upward.  Move away from holes when they start forming.
 Traejctorial Orbs: Orbs move along the ground, and their pathways are shown.  Observe pathways and stand away from them.
 Orb Placement: Tries to Forcefully place an Orb on you.  It takes time to charge up and move away from the direction of the hand.
 Tail Slam: Flips his body and slams the ground with his Tail.  Be ready to dodge when he flips.

If you don’t give the Eidolon Shard to the Custodian, you cannot further explore N’Erud, as it will destroy it. However, you can give the Shard to the Custodian or use it to craft Spectral Blade.

After gathering all the required material, you should go to McCabe’s Store. Furthermore, McCabe is a recurring character found in both installments of Remnant. She is available in Ward 13.

Mutators are a special kind of item intended to enhance your Weapons greatly. Moreover, they provide additional stats or passive abilities that can strengthen your weapons, making them valuable items.

Each weapon comes with a singular Mutator slot and thus can only equip one at a time. Following are Mutators that work well with Spectral Blade.

  • Vengeful Strike: Increases Melee damage by 20% when health is lower than 50%. This mutator will be useful in combat situations. It will help you in low-hp situations, where you will kill enemies quickly due to increased damage giving you time to heal. In the Labyrinth, Vengeful Strike is found, which is dropped by Bastion.
  • Shield Breaker: For every melee attack shield breaker grants a Shield for 2% of Max health, which goes up to 10% max. However, It lasts for 10 seconds. It is used during boss fights to block special attacks from the boss. It can be bought from Dwell for 75 Relic Dust and 500 Scraps.
  • Harmonizer: This mutator increases Mod damage by 10%. Generally, It pairs with Spectral Blade due to its high and fast damaging Mod(whirlwind). Dwell sells Harmonizer for the same cost of 75 Relic Dust and 500 scraps.

Therefore in Remnant 2, Spectral Blade is one of the best melee weapons, and when combined with Mod and Mutators, it increases the quality and efficiency. Moreover, it is a glowing melee weapon that looks aesthetically pleasing to explore around with or to look at hanging behind the player. Hopefully, this guide can help you obtain and use this sword.
