    What is your suggestion?
    I suggest that Earthbenders are given more opportunities to use Sandbending without having to find and use sand specifically, it should definately be a part of their bending as a whole. To do this I see two options:

    Option 1: Earthbenders are given a new ability that allows them to turn Earth into Sand for a while, that or be able to use it frequently, still should revert.

    Option 2: Increase the duration of DensityShift, which is a passive ability that allows Earthbenders to make sand under them when falling from a great height. Setting the duration to 8900 would be good for getting specifically around 3 SandBlasts out and no more.

    Why do we need this? or What made you post this suggestion?
    We need this because Sandbending is currently very rarely used, SandBlast, SandBullet & SandSurf are only feasable in combat if you fight on sand, for instance making areas of sand at spawn manually, but almost any Earthbender is not bothered to do this making Sand underused.
    However buffing these Sand moves is unnecessary as they seem powerful enough as long as you have plenty of sand for them. (Except SandSurf, SandSurf could really use perhaps a speed buff.)

    The only problem is being bothered to get sand to use these abilities, Earthbenders should really be able to turn Earth into sand more often and more easily using their bending.

    What are the possible negative aspects of your suggestion?
    The bad thing about this suggestion is, really not sure what would be bad about it;
    I think this is the most simple and minimalistic way to greatly improve Sandbending.

    What are the positive aspects of your suggestion?
    The good thing about this suggestion is Sandbending will be much more easier for Earthbenders to make use of in more combat scenarios, hopefully making Sandbending used overall more frequently.

    How can this suggestions be achieved on the server?
    Option 1:
    A new small Sandbending ability like DensityShift but more manually triggerable.
    If this cannot be added, then there's option 2.

    Option 2:
    Configs:
    BendingConfigs/projectkorra config.yml: Line 891:
    Duration: 8900 (Currently/Was 2500)

    +1, sure, atm it seems adequate as it is if you just enjoy using sand, but having more normal benders use sand would be neat too.

    I like option 2 cuz option 1 sounds a bit op.
    People only know to use catapult to make the sand when they land, but they can also use raise earth underneath them to shoot them up a bit. It's faster than catapult.

    Sandbullets weakness is lack of sand.
    If we can create sand it’ll be way too op

    You realize you can just place sand? And i'm still the only person that uses it?
    I'm gonna address sandbullet sometime, i'm just waiting to see whether this suggestion goes through. It's only any good at long range anyway.

    I use sand bullet too, it isnt that rare to see some people use it. And that is the reason why I think option 2 is better and less op
