Room Movement Messaging: A sand sprite skips west, sea-green eyes flashing as she glares in your direction.
Death Messaging: A sand sprite slowly falls to the ground, moaning in despair, shuddering in pain before taking her last breath.
Sand sprites will advance on you extremely quickly (skipping pole range).
The sand sprite grabs a handful of sand and gestures at it, charging it with electrical energy!
Giggling childishly the sand sprite throws the sparkling sand towards you!
Note: This is easily resisted if you are fighting them at-circle.
Sand Sprites are excellent for learning combat skills and Locksmithing, making them a popular rung on the training ladder. In addition, they are found just two rooms away from a city (Ratha) and they have a phenomenal spawn rate.
- Boxes require a minimum of roughly 40 ranks of Locksmithing (with a lot of patience and struggle), with 65 considered "at level." Expect an average of 1,500 lirum per box, with rare jackpot boxes possible. Example:
In the driftwood strongbox you see a large clear diamond, a huge yellow diamond, some copper coins, some bronze coins, a silver coin, some gold coins, some platinum coins, a huge russet sapphire, a huge lilac opal, a huge smoky clear star-stone, a huge moss-green emerald, and a huge yellow-green alexandrite.
Total net worth was 5 plat in coin and 35 plat in gems. the rate that a box with more than a few gold will drop is close to 1 in 500 boxes took months of farming to get a jackpot box
- 40 rank "minimum" in locksmithing means that, while success is possible, you will still frequently fail to disarm these boxes, and encounter difficulty in opening them. 45 + buffs recommended to start.
