What Do You Need To Harvest Sand?

Like dirt, you will need a pickaxe to dig it up and harvest. Any type and quality of pickaxe works perfectly with this material! You also need a spacious inventory as sand takes up a lot of space after a while. In the image below, we just used a normal pickaxe that players start off with.


Finding Sand

Nomad Highlands Ancient Spire

To begin, starting from your home base, you will need to go to the Nomad Highhlands Ancient Spire as this is the easiest and nearest place to start. If you don’t have this Spire open yet, you will need to travel on foot. Be careful, there will be a lot of enemies in both the shroud and on the terrain ahead so remember to pack potions, healing items, and food!

Fanning Ranch

From the Nomad Highlands Ancient Spire, head Southeast until you reach Fanning Ranch. Fanning Ranch will stand as your hint that you’re getting closer to your destination. You can also use Fanning Ranch as a marker to keep track of where you can Sand! Aside from this, you can also use this ruin to rest up or gather more materials on your way to the sand location or on your way back to your base. Either way, Fanning Ranch is your useful buddy to get some sand in Enshrouded.

It is also important to note that Fanning Ranch has a bit of enemies although they’re not much of a handful to deal with. These enemies are things like Bats and Scavengers. By chance, you will have to face a Scavenger warrior that uses an Acid-laced weapon. Its poison acts pretty quickly so attack as strong and as much as you can. For this enemy, it is suggested to avoid it completely or to dodge its attacks using a shield or running away. This warrior attacks way faster than its weaker mates so always be on your feet when facing this foe.

Red Mountains

From Fanning Ranch, look Southeast again and there should be Reddish Orange Mountains. This is where we can get Sand. Aside from sand, you can also get other materials such as Sandstone or even Lapis Lazuli. Here, there are some enemies to fight but they will not be much of a problem. Just be sure to ready your weapons. While gathering Sand in Enshrouded, you may be caught with your guard down. Enemies such as Scangers or even the animals around you can grow to be hostile.
