So, is fine sand sold ANYWHERE? Crafting has skyrocked, Idk how i'm supposed to craft. I can mine materials, 30>35 Mining will get me a crap ton of ore, but...

How do I get Shards? I could turn my crystals into shards, but Fine Sand is expensive, and that's still a very limited resource..

Is there a place I can farm Fire/Wind shards fast? I need a lot of them lol.

For some reason, I vaguely remember that the Fine Sand synths had been eliminated. I could be wrong.

In any case, I've been farming shards by doing XP parties, or hopping on my Chocobo and hitting the DoL circuits. That's probably your safest bet for farming.

Another good option is to go on a level 1 job and just kill stuff. Get up to around 4-5 and then just keep massacring the level 1 mobs in large groups with AoE. I think that LL is still the best place for wind shards. Since they eliminated point allotment it's more difficult to hone in on a specific shard, but certain mobs like seem to drop stuff more (ie, sheep and puks for wind). Heck, even if you're around 10-12, just find mobs a few ranks below you and kill them en masse. Shards aren't quite as easy to accumulate as they used to be, but you should be able to stockpile a fair amount in a short amount of time (and build materia while doing it if you want).
