How to get sapphire in Lego Fortnite

Sapphire is a resource you’ll have to find in Lego Fortnite if you want to level up your village or make better weapons and tools. Finding it is going to take a bit of prep work, though, as it is only found in one biome.

Our Lego Fortnite guide will explain how to get sapphire and what you’ll use it for.

How to get sapphire in Lego Fortnite

Sapphire is only found in the Frostlands biome — so you’ll need to find a snow biome first. You’ll know you’re in the right place when you start getting cold and seeing snow everywhere. You’ll also start seeing pine trees where you can gather frostpine wood.

Once you’re there, you’ll just have to find a cave. However, the Frostlands biomes are extremely cold, so you’ll have to prepare in order to survive:

  • Make a inner fire charm (3 wool thread, 5 cut ruby, 8 brightcore, and 3 blast core) — or two (the effect stacks) — at an upgraded crafting bench
  • Make some spicy burgers (1 flour, 1 meat, and 1 spicy pepper) at a grill

Inside Frostlands caves, look for the bright blue, lumpy deposits — those are your sapphire. You’ll need an epic pickaxe (8 obsidian slabs and 5 frostpine rods) to mine them.

Frostlands biomes are the same places you’ll find frostpine, malachite, and iron.

What you’ll use sapphire for in Lego Fortnite

Sapphire is an important resource for the endgame . You can turn it into cut sapphire at a gem cutter (20 marble slabs, 5 rough amber, 5 sand claws, and 3 sand shells).

You’ll use sapphire (and cut sapphires) to add the Essence of Luck essence to a tool or weapon at an essence table (20 flexwood and 6 cut amber). You’ll also need it for the epic regeneration charm and the rare good luck charm.

You’ll also need sapphires and cut sapphires to upgrade any villages in the Frostlands biome.
