Did anyone notice you can no longer buy fine sand from NPC's after the patch. How the **** are we going to be able to break shards without having to craft several hundred fine sands ourselves?

Well the good news is since the recipe for it is Goldsmith Rank 1, anyone can do it xD

It will probably put more reliance on fishing to get the right fish to break down into shards.

It's gonna be a pain. 6x river/sea sand yields 1 fine sand. I usually HH shards in loads of 200 synths so now my 200 synths become 400. As a fisher I liked breaking down black sole > crystals > shards. This sucks ><

lol better stock up now. We'll get some extra inventory space once the patch comes out. Just be sure to use it all up/sell it all before they remove the extra inventory space.

I'm going to jack the price up 1 gil per... Those dirty RMT will never see what's comin'! (FYI RMT won't realise what's going on for a month or so) they'll keep majorly undercutting everyone. As they have MILLIONS of shards, I would think you'll run out of inventory space and/or gil, before they run dry.

Now once they figure out that you can make a worthwhile profit on them... beware!

With the removal of so many parts needed to be crafted in order to make a finished product, the demand for shards will drop also, other than for grinding. This is just a gentle nudge towards reducing the supply.

I'm aware of that..it's still faster to catch fish that yield 6 crystals each and then shard those though
