How To Get the Yol Dance Emote (FFXIV)This post may contain affiliate links. If you buy something we may get a small commission at no extra cost to you. (Learn more).
You can unlock the Yol Dance emote by using the item “Ballroom Etiquette – The Yol Dance”. This item can be purchased from an NPC named Gyosho in the Azim Steppe (X:5.8, Y:23.4).
Gyosho is the tribal vendor for the Namazu, so you’ll need to unlock the Namazu Daily Quests and raise your Reputation with the catfish-looking creatures to obtain the Yol Dance emote. Namazu Daily Quests focus on tasks that can be done by Disciples of the Hand or Disciples of the Land.
When you have access to Gyosho and his wares, you can buy “Ballroom Etiquette – The Yol Dance” for 8 Namazu Koban after attaining an Honored reputation level. Once you’ve used the item, you can perform the Yol Dance by entering /yoldance into your chat bar.
Unlocking the Namazu Daily Quests
Like other Tribal Quests in the game, the Namazu dailies are unlocked after completing certain quest lines.
Here are the quests you’ll need to tackle before you can start your Namazu dailies:
|Quest||Level Requirement||Quest Starter||Location|
|Courage the Cowardly Lupin||64||Fukudo||Yanxia (X:30.9, Y:17.8)|
|Kurobana vs. the Rice Sacks||64||Fukudo||Yanxia (X:30.9, Y:17.8)|
|Kurobana vs. the Arrowheads||64||Fukudo||Yanxia (X:30.9, Y:17.8)|
|Kurobana Holmes||64||Fukudo||Yanxia (X:30.9, Y:17.8)|
|Perchance to Hanami||64||Ochimi||Yanxia (X:30.3, Y:18.3)|
|Gyorin the Namazu||64||Gyorin||Yanxia (X:15.4, Y:32.2)|
|No Wealth Like Mineral Wealth||64||Gyorin||Yanxia (X:16.8, Y:31.1)|
|Fresh Flesh||64||Gyorin||Yanxia (X:16.8, Y:31.1)|
|Show Me the New Money||64||Gyorin||Yanxia (X:16.8, Y:31.1)|
|Amber Alert||64||Gyoshu||Yanxia (X:15.0, Y:31.6)|
|Kurobana vs. Gyorin||64||Kurobana||Yanxia (X:29.3, Y:17.5)|
|Something Fishy This Way Comes||60||Floundering Namazu||The Azim Steppe (X:17.4, Y:37.5)|
|One Size Fits All||60||Seigetsu the Enlightened||The Azim Steppe (X:6.1, Y:23.3)|
After doing “One Size Fits All”, you can begin grinding for your reputation with the Namazu. Since the number of tribal quests you can do is limited per day, getting to the “Honored” status will take a while.
Once you’ve done enough dailies to raise your reputation up one level, a new quest will become available from Gyoshin. The quest to attain the Honored level is called “Out of the Frypan”.
Quick Walkthrough for “Out of the Frypan”
This quest begins with Gyoshin in the Azim Steppe (X:6.1, Y:23.3). After talking to Gyoshin, you will be tasked with speaking to certain NPCs of the Steppe before reporting back to Gyorei.
Here are the locations for each NPC:
|Cirina||Azim Steppe (X:31.4, Y:11.3)|
|Magnai||Azim Steppe (X:20.6, Y:22.7)|
|Sadu||Azim Steppe (X:12.5, Y:34.1)|
|Gyorei||Azim Steppe (X:6.5, Y:24.2)|
Once you’re done reporting to Gyorei, you will be tasked with either crafting a set of components or retrieving a certain object based on what job you are on. Here’s what you’ll be asked to provide based on the class you are using:
|Any Disciple of the Hand||Set of ceremonial bow components||Materials are found in a Cumbersome Crate within Dhoro Iloh|
|Miner||Mondite||Found in an area south of Reunion|
|Botanist||Straight Shoot||Found in an area south of Reunion|
|Fisher||Arrowhead snail||Caught from a spring in the southwest corner of the Azim Steppe|
Regardless of what you are asked to obtain, you will deliver the item to Gyoshin at the Azim Steppe (X:6.6, Y:24.2). Once that’s done, speak to Gyorei and a mini-game will commence.
The goal of the mini-game is to hit the target Gyoshin is holding with a bow and arrow. Gyoshin will randomly pop out of a jar but he won’t always be holding the target so pay attention before you shoot.
If you fail by hitting Gyoshin, you’ll simply restart the mini-game.
Once you’re done demonstrating your aim, speak to Gyoshin at The Azim Steppe (X:5.4, Y:22.3) to complete the quest. You now have an Honored reputation with the Namazu, and Gyosho will have the “Ballroom Etiquette – The Yol Dance” up for sale.
