This is my first guide, so be nice. No flaming, only constructive criticism and comments. Now I know what you're probably thinking at this stage. "Why would anyone want to train at yaks?" Well, the reason is that yaks are actually very fast experience. If you read this whole guide you'll find out why. Yaks are located in a small pen on the island of Neitiznot
2.0 [ Requirements ]
To get to yaks, you need to have done Fremennik Trials, and have started Fremennik Isles.
To do these quests you must meet the following requirements:
1. 20 Construction
2. 40 Agility
3. 46 Crafting
4. 56 Woodcutting
3.0 [ How to get there ]
Yaks are located on the Fremmnik island of Neitiznot. I have created a map of how to get there.
There are three main ways to get there. They all end up on the same path however.
1. Camalot teleport - Requires 45 magic. Teleport to camelot, then walk north until you reach the Fremmnik provinces.
2. House portal - If you own a house just outside Relleka use house teleport then walk outside and go north.
3. Enchanted Lyre - Teleport using the Enchanted Lyre from Fremmnik Trials and walk north-east to the gates, then follow the main route.
Once on Neitiznot go north along the path, following it east until you reach the gates to the village. Beside the village gates is a gate to the pen which holds the yaks.
4.0 [ Yak stats and drops ]
In the field there are 6 Yaks. Each Yak has 50hp, and can each in turn give 200xp per kill. Each Yak has a waiting time of 5 SECONDS before it respawns. The fields are very quiet areas and rarely have anyone else, apart from a quester every now and again. They are combat level 22 and almost NEVER hit. I would fight these gladly all day skulled with all my best stuff on with 1hp. Thats how secure they are. They have no drops apart from 100% drops, which are: Yak hair, Yak meat, Yak hide and Bones.
Yak hide can be "cured" (5gp per hide) so it can be crafted into Yak hide armour. It is level 43 crafting to make Yak hide legs (1 cured hide, 32 crafting xp) and level 46 crafting to make Yak hide tops (2 cured hides, 32 crafting xp). Yak hair can be spun at a spinning wheel to make ropes (25 crafting xp).
Yak armour and stats:
5.0 [ Inventory ]
What you should be wearing should not consist of defense. It should consist of attack bonus, and strength.
Helmet of Neitiznot > Bezerker Helmet
Abyssal Whip > Dragon Scimitar > Dragon Long
Fury Amulet > Glory Amulet > Power Amulet > Strength Amulet
Rune Defender > Obsidian Shield > Other Defenders
Bandos Top > Fighter Torso > Anything
Bandos Tassets > Anything
Barrows Gloves > Combat Bracelet > Any other gloves down to mith > Family Crest Gauntlets
Dragon Boots > Rune Boots > Climbing Boots > Addy Boots
Bezerker Ring > Warrior Ring > Any Ring
Fire Cape > Obsidian Cape > Legends Cape
In your inventory there is no need for food, however, I always like to keep food for random events. Super attack pots are only 1-2k per, so if you buy them they speed up training alot as they make you hit more often. It is always good to carry a Dragon Battle Axe for specials, so you get some strength bonus.
When ranging Yaks you can easily stand outside and range away at them. The--Corrupt did us all a favour and checked the amount of experiance an hour you get with iron knives.
Robin > Blessed Coif > Archer Helm > Snakeskin bandana > Coif
Mage Shortbow = Knives = Darts
(Iron > Steel > Bronze (Iron is best as they are cheapest projectiles))
Fury Amulet > Glory Amulet > Power Amulet
Unholy Book > Book of Balance
Karils/Black dragonhide > 3rd Age Range Armour > Other dragonhide in decending order
Barrows Gloves > Black dragonhide vambs > 3rd Age vambs > Other dhide vambs
Ranger Boots > Snakeskin boots > Rune Boots
Archer Ring > Any other dagganoth king rings > Any ring
Ava's Accumulator > Fire Cape > Obsidian Cape > Legends Cape > Any other cape
I have made a picture showing the four best safespots.
Cannons can be quite useful, and can be used in the field. If you were using a cannon you could have it set up in front of the gate, or in front of the trees. Cannons could speed up range training as if you are safespotted it can attack multiple targets.
7.0 [ Frequently Asked Questions ]
Q: Why shouldn't I just go train at experiments?
A: Hey it's up to you, but experiments is packed, has slow spawn times and is full of usually rude and arrogant pures.
Q: Is it easy to range yaks?
A: Yes, and you can leave the gate open for easy running in to grab your projectiles if you aren't using an accumulator.
Q: Should I collect hides?
A: I would say no. Just get 3 so you can make some yak armour for yourself.
Q: How many people train at yaks?
A: Over the past week I haven't seen anyone training there. Only questers every few hours.
Q: How much xp would I get per hour?
A: Depends how fast you can kill them really. Super attack pots help boost your xp by roughly 10k+ in my experiance. I get about 60k+ xp an hour. It seems like "omg you're lying" but it's only 300 kills to get that amount per hour, and thats only asking for 5 a minute, 12 seconds per kill. Which is VERY manageable.
Q: Should I bring a dragon battle axe/dds/d mace for special attacks?
A: I would say no to dds and d mace, it's a hassle constantly changing to use up specials. For DBX it's your own personal preferance really, it lowers attack however which my mean lowering how often you hit.
Q: Are Yaks aggressive?
A: No. Even if they were, they're level 22, and you'd have to be under level 45 for them to auto attack you.
Q: Is it a multi-combat area?
A: No it is not.
Q: Do I need a seal of passage?
A: No, a seal of passage is for lunar isle, not Neitiznot.
Q: Can I kill yaks with 1 defence?
A: You need to do fremmnik trials and fremmnik isles, which both give you defence. So no. Sorry. They are "rock crabs for non pures".
Q: Do I need to wear yak hide armour?
A: No. I just like to wear it.
Q: What food should I use?
A: Any, they hardly hit you at all.
