Yak (Player-owned farm)

Jump to: navigation, search

Yaks are livestock that can be raised and bred at the player-owned farm once unlocked at level 71 Farming, as well level 60 in Construction in order to build the large pens. Yaks can be obtained by breeding, as a rare drop from killing yaks, or by making pack yak pouches. The large pens will need to be unlocked from the Farmers' Market before being able to build the pen. Yaks can be placed in the two large pens (capacity of three animals each) and in the breeding pen (capacity of four animals).

In total there are three different breeds including the shiny sacred yak.

Like all farm animals, they may have up to three traits, which determine their selling price in beans to non-player characters, among other effects, and can be sold on the Grand Exchange in their unchecked form. Once they have been checked, however they may only be traded directly between players or sold to Prezleek, the yak buyer. Six can be sold each three days.

Yaks eat vegetables, fruits, and flowers.

Perks[edit | edit source]

Placing an elder yak of any breed in a large pen with a farm totem enables the perk "Nigel's Gift", giving a 2% chance of finding a clue scroll when checking the health of, or picking the last crop from, a farming patch. If this is done in two pens, the chance if increased to 2.5%.
