- Drill Sample Taken
Okay, I'll let you in on the real work, since you're looking at me so desperately.
This rock is untapped! It's probably richer than a trade prince during a great war! I need samples. More samples. Samples from everywhere!
I've modified my earth totems to drill through the sand and store samples of the rock underneath. Go find a nice spot and plan one.

Another sample. Brilliant! The rocky riches of the sea shall soon be mine!
