My Time At Sandrock – Bachelor Guide (Updated)

My Time At Sandrock is the wonderful slice of life RPG sequel to My Time at Portia and its Early Access is coming out next week on May 26th 2022. Considering how much time I’ve clocked into My Time At Portia it’s an understatement to say that I’m excited for this one to come out. And as such, I’ll be coming out with some fun guides for the game.

My Time At Sandrock has Early Access on Steam and Epic Games. (Unfortunately for console players, you’ll need to wait until 2023 for its release). And just like any Early Access version of any game, Pathea will continue to add regular updates from new features, missions, character dialogue etc. So expect this guide to be changing over time.

OccupationGeneral Store Owner
LocationBy The Stairs. Opens from 8:00 to 22:00.

Arvio is the owner of Sandrock’s general store By the Stairs. He is a salesman by heart and works hard to improve his shop and its sales. Like his older sister, Amirah, he is a native of Barnarock and had a hard start in life. Arvio cares deeply for his sister and would never do anything – including business – that could upset their relationship. He enjoys relaxing under a sunshade looking at the oasis or relaxing in the gaming centre. His sister often joins him for dinner.


Arvio has a variety of items that he likes to take, with no set theme.

Ernest is a reporter from Atara sent to Sandrock to write an article on ‘Ernie’s World’, only for his train to be accosted by Logan and Haru. Eager for a more interesting headline, Ernest does his best to interview the residents of Sandrock to learn more about these local criminals.

Ernest is also an aspiring writer and is known for writing books for preteens. However his books were criticized harshly for a lack of character depth, which was also noted by Jasmine. Despite this, he still maintains a love for books.


Ernest loves a lot of the items available during the Day of Memories, Sandrock’s Halloween-themed event.

BirthdayWinter 22
LocationFang and X Clinic. Opens from 7:00 to 19:00.
Sometimes – Outskirts of Sandrock

The Fang and X Clinic is a shop located at the top right corner of Sandrock and above High Noon Arena. You won’t be able to woo this mysterious young doctor until you’ve completed the Taste of Your Own Medicine quest. Only after completing the missions can you begin to accumulate relationship points with Fang.

He is the only doctor currently within Sandrock, with a fascination for gifting experimental medicine to unknowing tourists and builders. For unspecified reasons, Fang does not talk much, relying on X for the majority of conversations with others.


Fang is unique compared to My Time at Sandrock‘s other NPCs. Most of his loved items are ones that other characters hate, and he’ll also refuse most other items.
