So called because of the numerous yak herds that rove throughout the area, Yak's Bend is the last refuge for travelers who are about to undertake the rough passage through the Shiverpeaks. Because of its lower altitude, the weather here is somewhat less harsh, providing a place to rest, regroup, and re-equip.

— in-game description

Yak's Bend is a village in the Northern Shiverpeaks.

Getting there[edit]

Alternatively, you can run here from Ascalon City following this map. When running here, there is only one entrance directly south of the outpost, don't mistake it for the entrance of Shiverpeak Arena.
