How to Obtain Yak Milk in FFXIV

Yak Milk is a consumable ingredient that also can be used to craft a variety of items, so players are often on the lookout for it. On the traditional front, it can be acquired via farming the animal it drops from, which is the Wooly Yak. These large creatures with fluffy white wool and big curled horns spawn regularly in the snowy fields of the Coerthas Western Highlands, specifically around (X:14.8, Y:16.4).

Do keep in mind that not every Wooly Yak you bring down will drop Yak Milk. It can take sometimes up to a few kills before you see any, but it’ll range from 1 to 3 cans per drop. The Yaks themselves also respawn pretty quickly, so you can do at least an easy few rounds on the herd to get a decent amount of Yak Milk for your efforts.

Alternatively, if you don’t want to bother with farming kills and gil isn’t an issue for you, instead you can pay a visit to a local Market Board and there is usually some being sold by fellow players. As of this writing, the average price for Yak Milk on Aether servers is around 500-700 gil/piece, with it usually being sold in small batches.

One other option is to purchase it from an Elezen NPC named Vral at the Crystarium. His shop is located at (X:9.0, Y:12.3), and he sells Yak Milk for 617 gil/piece. Not exactly a bigger bargain, but if the Market Boards are low on supply, he’ll always have it available.
