I've had 2 different people ask me how to mine sand. Thinking logically I tell them you have to read the book obtained from the Garg city then go dig in a sand area with a shovel. Both times I've been told that it doesn't work. Of course, both here on Stratics and also on UOGuide, no guides or essays actually say HOW to dig sand, just that you have to read the book. So the question is, exactly how do you dig it and with what tool?
