Within the sandstorm-ridden Desert of Hadramaveth region of Sumeru, the players can find the Genshin Impact Sand Grease Pupa locations to collect this valuable regional speciality. Sand Grease Pupa is a stone-like husk for Quicksand Eels in the Sumeru desert that is used primarily as an Alhaitham Ascension material.
While Sand Grease Pupa is currently only used as a Genshin Impact Alhaitham material, once more characters are added to the Sumeru region, it’s likely more characters will require Sand Grease Pupa in order to ascend and level up. Nevertheless, it’s worth finding all the Sand Grease Pupa locations to stock up sooner rather than later.
Genshin Impact Sand Grease Pupa locations
The Genshin Impact Sand Grease Pupa locations can only be found in the Desert of Hadramaveth in Sumeru, and players should focus their efforts around The Sands of Al-Azif and the Dunes of Steel. These areas are to the east of the Desert of Hadramaveth and are primarily located underground. If you have Tighnari, then bring him along as he will mark Sumeru regional specialties on your mark, including Sand Grease Pupa locations.
Other good places to find Genshin Impact Sand Grease Pupa locations to ascend Alhaitham are near Safhe Shatranj and Wadi Al-Majuj to the south-west of the Desert of Hadramaveth.
It should be noted that many of the Sand Grease Pupa locations around the Sands of Al-Azif and the Dunes of Steel are actually underground. While the in-game map does not yet have an option to view an underground map, the official HoYoverse Genshin Impact interactive map does give us this opportunity.
