How to Get Sandstone in New World
Sandstone is a resource exclusive to Brimstone Sands in New World. You need at least Mining level 105 to gather Sandstone, so make sure you have this before attempting to scout for some.
You also must meet specific requirements before accessing Brimstone Sands:
- Complete the “A Selfless Nature” Main Story quest in Edengrove
- Finish “Strider of the Sands”
If you haven’t completed these requirements, you’ll instantly die when you walk into the area. While you may survive long enough to see Brimstone Sands, you won’t be able to gather any resources or venture far enough to find Sandstone.
With all of that out of the way, you can start looking for some Sandstone. You’ll find these ore nodes scattered around the entire region. It’s a common resource that you’ll encounter just about anywhere. However, below are some specific areas you can explore for plenty of Sandstone:
- Castrum Victualis: As you travel west past New Thermopylae, you’ll find Sandstone nodes to the southwest and northern parts of Castrum Victualis. There are dozens of ores here for you to farm!
- Jupiter’s Grove and The Great Bazaar: Surrounding these two areas are numerous Sandstone nodes in close proximity. In particular, you’ll want to focus north of the Grove, heading towards Neapolis.
- Beds of Ta-Bitjet: If you don’t mind a bit of chaos or are conveniently in the area, you’ll find Sandstone surrounding the central part of this area. You can also head north of this area for some extra nodes.
- Oasis Spontanea: You’ll find Sandstone scattered around this entire area. You can venture as far out as the Palace of Nekhbet, Arit-en-Geb or Anhur’s Pride for plenty of Sandstone Nodes.
- Heru Plaza: While this isn’t the most convenient spot, it’s helpful if you’re in the area and want to get some extra resources. In the eastern part of the plaza is a few additional nodes that you can mine. If you’re heading towards Serpent’s Pass, you’ll find some more Sandstone along the way.
