How to find Earthbreak Aethersand in FFXIV

Earthbreak Aethersand is available from two possible locations. The first is to exchange 300 Purple Crafter’s or Gatherer’s Scrips at one of the Scrip Exchange vendors. We prefer the Radz-at-Han (X: 11.5 Y: 9.5), because it’s close to the Collectable Appraiser. Just as a reminder, Purple Crafter’s and Gatherer’s Scrips can be obtained by exchanging high-level collectables at the Collectable Appraiser.

Additionally, like all Aethersand items, Earthbreak Aethersand is obtainable from Aetherial Reduction. Using the Aetherial Reduction command on Nosceasaur, Verdigris Guppy, Earthen Quartz, or Sophora Root collectables will sometimes yield Earthbreak Aethersand.
