Try South Ro if you haven't already. I cleared them once last night and got 3 Sand of Ro to drop.
EQ down due to 'intrusion' there is NO sand of Ro intrusion

They are needed for the paladin Ro armor quests, and also for pottery making small wisdom deities. When I was doing pottery I'd auction that I wanted to buy the sand and many people would (if they were close by anyway) just give me the sand for free. The most I was going to pay for it was 10pp, since at the time I was doing pottery 10pp was a BIG deal. They make +2 WIS deities for clerics and druids ( no SHM grr...) that can be put in all of the weapon slots except ammo. Most everyone I sold was going in the range slot. You need a 135 pottery skill to make them at 90% success rate, and the formula is 1 flask of water, one idol ( or deity? ) sketch, and small block of clay and the sand, trivials 135 on the pottery wheel. Combine the unfired deity and a HQ firing sheet in a kiln for the finished product. They sold for 100pp easy when I first made them, and after I while I would just give them out to free to clerics and druids who didnt have a range slot item. The stuff to make these ( barring paying for the sand ) cost 1pp tops to buy from vendors. Was a very good way to make money back before Luclin, they may still have a market today for lower level druids/clerics but probably go for 50pp average. No way Id pay more than 10pp per sand now, unless I was doing the Ro armor quests. They only drop from sand giants and can't be foraged and they don't drop every time you kill a sand giant either.

Sands of ro can normally be bought for 10-20pp each, and can then be made in to Small Wisdom Deities, which can sell for 100-200pp

This is one of the components used to create Ronium, a magical metal used to forge items from the ridiculously difficult (for it's level) Armor of Ro quests (Paladin Only). If you get any of these little packets - sell em' to Paladins, generally Level 1 to 35 will want to take me off your hands.

Sand Giants in Oasis of Marr drop these and i've been offered 30pp for them.

The sand of Ro is used for Paladin armor. Drops off of sand giants in N,SRO.

Who drops it?
# May 10 2001 at 10:01 AM Rating: Default
Someone asked this already but there was no answer.

Who do you have to kill to get this stuff?

Is it in North Ro, the Oasis, or South Ro?

RE: sand of ro drop
# Sep 24 2002 at 12:25 PM Rating: Decent
they drop of SanD Gaints in Oasis. about a 1hr spawn timer on them for what i can tell.

they con blue-even to my lvl 35 shammie and i can solo them with no hassel.
