The question says it all. Where do Molten Lodestones drop? I need 6 of them to make runes but I can't find them anywhere.

Molten Lodestones are found in Citadel of Flame explorable mode chests.

Citadel of Flame is a dungeon in Fireheart Rise in the Ascalon region.

Are you entirely positive this is the only place they drop? – Emerica. Oct 4 '12 at 12:14
People say they can drop from (vet) mobs in Malchor's Leap – Gwen Oct 4 '12 at 14:20
They're almost certain just rare drops off elemental type mobs -- but maybe only specific types. – AHungerArtist Oct 4 '12 at 14:30
So far I have got nothing but molten cores from chests :(. I guess I am just really unlucky. – Emerica. Oct 8 '12 at 17:40

According to the GW2 Wiki, there is a Mystic Forge recipe to promote cores to lodestones:

The example uses Charged Cores, but any cores should work.
