In Genshin Impact, the Sand Wen Grub is a local Sumeru curiosity that is required to ascend certain characters. You will need a huge amount of these materials, so in this guide we decided to tell you where you can find and buy them.
What is the sand wen grub for?
Currently, it is needed pumping just one character – al-Haytham. However, even to ascend just one hero, you will need 168 of these items, so you should prepare for their long and often exhausting farm.
Today, these materials are not needed to craft any tools and items, but this may change in the future. For now, you can spend everything on leveling up your fighters.
Preparing to collect Sand Wen Larvae
You can collect these eggs with any characters, but if you plan to seriously farm them (that is, not make a 5-minute outing, but arrange a real hike for 30-40 minutes), then we advise you to take a few heroes that will allow you to significantly reduce the collection time this curiosity. All of them are listed in the table below.

After how many sand wen larvae respawn
As is the case with other types of local curiosities, these fruits, once harvested, are restored in exactly 48 hours of real time. Therefore, after visiting the best places to farm, just wait a couple of days, and then follow these routes again or ask to the worlds of your friends.
Where to find sand wen larvae
You can only find them in the Hadramavet Desert, which is considered part of Sumeru. Most often, these insect eggs are found in the tunnels of Unut. Therefore, when farming larvae, you will often have to visit underground locations. We advise you to keep an interactive map of the Dendro region in front of your eyes in order to better navigate the terrain.
All routes for farming this local curiosity will be presented after the release of update 3.4, scheduled for January 18 of this year.
Where to buy sand wen larvae
At the moment, not a single Teyvat merchant offers these local curiosities for sale. They also cannot be purchased from the Paimon store. It is possible that they will appear in the range of new sellers that may be added in the future. We will definitely tell you about it in this section.
