Yak Vendor in World of Warcraft

One of the two most commonly searched items I’ve found was the Yak Vendor in World of Warcraft. The other had to do with Anise’s Cabin in Skyrim. Considering where the vendor is, it’s no wonder people have a hard time trying to find him, so I decided to give a heads up for those who needed help.WoWScrnShot_060614_102237

For one thing, it’s no wonder we have a tough time tracking down this salesman… he’s a grummle, so he’s very short to begin with. His name is Uncle Bigpocket, and considering how much gold he asks for these mounts, he’d naturally need a big pocket to hold them all. Shame rogues cannot pickpocket friendly NPCs, or they’d be crazily rich.

One way to spot him to to use the target command, “/target Uncle Bigpocket” So juct use the command within the quotation marks, but don’t use the quotation marks – you’ll only confuse the game.

Another way is if you use coordinates. You can use an addon or two that allows you to see where you are on the X/Y axis of the game world. I use addons like Titan Panel and Sexy Map, and they both have a few features to enhance information you get from your game. For example you can select Sexy Map to display coordinates for you, or as with TitanPanel one of the things it can display is your location, which you can modify to show the name of the area you are in as well as the zone name if you wish, and more importantly the coordinates of where you currently are.

Based on this information, I have Uncle Bigpockets pinpointed at coordinates 65, 61.

WoWScrnShot_060614_104649Or let’s say you don’t use coordinates. Maybe it only gives you a headache, or you just want a visual guide of sorts. The quickest way to the Yak Vendor in WoW. No problem. Assuming you got all the flight paths in the game, take a flight (taxi) to a village called One Keg. The Grummle Bazaar is due east from there. If you look on your map, you’ll see that One Keg has map artwork of a Pandaren building, as well as a flight path symbol. Look to the right of that and you’ll see a similar house icon to the east of One Keg, though it has no flight path, but then it’s only a quick walk/run away from One Keg that it was probably hardly worth setting up a flight path there. Another way to find the Grummle Bazaar is to travel on the road going south from the Temple of the White Tiger.

Another tip to help you find it, if you’re a pet battle trainer like me, or playing a hunter character, then odds are you have the Stable icon appear on your minimap. The stable is an NPC who offers to store extra hunter pets so they can go tame other beasts for their combat uses, and it is also the NPC who can revive your companion pets for pet battles as well. The Icon is in the shape of horse shoe on your minimap. Now the Grummle Bazaar has no flight master, but it does have the stable master, so if you have that trackable on your minimap, then you’ll see where the stable master is on said minimap. The stable master at the Grummle Bazaar is named Herder Muskfree, and in the paddock behind him are the yaks, and Uncle Bigpockets.

… these grummles sure have weird names, but then I bet they think Owlaf is a weird name too!

WoWScrnShot_060614_102305So there you have it, the location of the Yak Vendor in Wow. Due east of One Keg (which has a flight path) so you can simply take a flight path taxi to one keg, then travel east to the Grummle Bazaar, or you can pinpoint his coordinates, which again is 65, 61.

As for the gold…. it costs 106,000 gold pieces to buy the grand expedition yak… I can’t help you get it, though I can suggest daily quests galore. I have yet to see an actual gold coin drop on the Timeless Isle, so I don’t recommend farming there if you’re after gold.

Yikes! I found the Yak Vendor!

(writing in the point of view of Owlaf, a level 89 Night Elf Druid, Realm: Feathermoon)

I finally managed to stumble upon a yak salesman. Yeah you heard me! Yaks! And they aren’t even yakety! I want a yakety yak!

And the salesman, Uncle Bigpocket told me, “Don’t talk back!”

Welcome to Courvelle Toyota! Would you like to test ride the 2012 gray riding Yak, on sale now, all patch 5.0’s must go!

Anyway, he sells three yaks for now. Two of them are just under three thousand gold pieces to me. One blonde (that’s a new mount color I’ve seen) and the other is gray. They seem to be small, but I’m betting what they lack in size they make up for in strength.

And that is certainly proven with the most expensive mount Uncle Bigpocket has for sale: the Grand Expedition Yak! A whooping 108,000 gold pieces, I know the moment I buy this one, I’ll have nothing but moths left in my pocket. This yak seems bigger than the others, and that’s a good thing since this one is carrying something on his back. A large series of luggage is crammed together and tied up on the Yak’s back, and hanging on either side of it are seats, and each one has someone sitting in it already. One seems to be a vendor, but what’s that other one? An arcane reforger? Wow! No wonder the price is so high. This would be much more useful than the Travelers Tundra Mammoth I have… Similar, but it doesn’t have the reforger. There also seems to be an umbrella on top of the packages… Guess it’s there to keep it all from getting wet!

I bet I’d look silly as a moonkin on this, but silly is my middle name… Owlaf-silly-moonkin. That’s me…. well, not really.

So now I know where to find the yak seller, up in the Kun-Lai Summit¬†at the Grummle Bazaar… or is that¬†bizarre…. no that’s strange… Anyway, 3k and 110k for these. Start saving those coppers and silvers! ^,^
