Players can farm Charged Lodestones from a few different locations whjen their server is in control of the Cathedral of Zephyrs in Malchor's Leap.
Two of these locations are in Cursed Shore, one is in northern Cursed Shore by Caer Shadowfen the other is outside the Gates of Arah. Both clickable things in the last sentence will take you to videos I created for both of these farming locations. If you would prefer written guides see the links below.

how ofther do they drop in CoE?
i did 13 runs in CoE with 0% magic find and got 1
When the "Cathedral of Zephyrs" in Malchor's Leap is under player/allied control, Sparks will spawn around the Cathedral and straight above the Caer Shadowfain Waypoint in Cursed Shore. The control over the Cathedral is a must, as without it the sparks will not spawn. Furthermore, I can confirm that the sparks in Cursed Shore do indeed drop the Lodestones rarely. So far I have managed to snatch 3 of these with 155%ish magic find. Remember that there is an anti-farm code, so try switching between these two locations every hour or so to ensure you will continue receiving drops.
Edit: I can confirm that the sparks at the Cathedral of Zephyrs do indeed drop Charged Lodestones as well. I just received one.
These are a very rare drop. More often than not you will find Charged Cores over these, but you can forge these with the mystic forge. 2 Charged Core + 1 Crystal + 1 Elonian Wine + 1 Crystalline Dust = 1 Lodestone. Dungeons have the highest drop rate for Cores and Lodestones from the chests. Match the element to the theme of the dungeon i.e. Molten Cores come from Citadel of Flame.

I did not find Sparks in Northern Cursed Shores
Where is this please ?
I picked one up while farming Sparks in Northern Cursed Shores. I imagine these can be picked up from sparks in any 70+ zone.
Where does it drops?
