Sand Grains are used to craft Quicksand Powder which is then used to craft Quicksand.


You can get Sand Grains two ways:

  • Crafting it
  • There is a 3/8 of sand falling and then breaking into three bunches of Sand Grains


In order to craft three bunches of Sand Grains, you need one piece of sand.

Obviously, the recipe is shapeless.
