Salamander Tail A Salamander Tail is a piece of forgeable material in Golden Sun: The Lost Age. It is described as "A fiery lizard's tail". It is found in various areas after the Great Western Sea is accessed, such as in Magma Rock, and it can also be dropped rarely from a Pyrodra in Treasure Isle (fell it with Mars Djinn to increase drop rate by four times). Being an Artifact, it can be sold and later repurchased. It can be bought for 1400 coins and sold for 1050 coins. It can be forged into the following quite powerful equipment, all Mars-based:
