To get to Yokmir Cave, you’ll need to leave the safe confines of the Castle area, travel through Selphia Plains, and traverse Yokmir Forest. The cave also doesn’t really have a cave-like entrance – so you’d access it by jumping off a cliff into the cave itself.
You will be led to the cave as you progress through the main storyline, but some players have claimed that they’ve gotten requests involving Yokmir Cave without having reached that point in the story yet.
Either way, we’ve got a step-by-step guide below that’ll show you exactly how to access Yokmir Cave.
Getting To Yokmir Cave from the Castle (Step-by-Step)
When you exit the castle, you’ll need to make your way south of Selphia Town Square and head towards the path leading to the outside of town.
When you exit, you’ll make it to the Selphia Castle Gate.
Cross the bridge and you’ll find yourself at an intersection.
At this point, you’ll have two options: take the path heading east, or the path heading south.
We’ll cover both options.
Option 1: Take the Path Heading East
If you decide on the path east from the castle gate, you’ll end up in a small corner of Selphia plain.
This route is slightly safer than the other option, which has a bunch of mobs to get past. Upon entering this area, all you need to do is to go south.
Option 2: Take the Path Heading South
If you decide to head south, you’ll arrive at another intersection. You’ll need to proceed to the path on the east.
You’ll be faced with low-level mobs in the area, but it should be easy to just run past them.
Whichever option you choose, you’ll end up in the same area.
At this point, take the path heading east from there.
If you follow the instructions correctly, you’ll make it to the entrance of Yokmir Forest.
Head on inside.
Through Yokmir Forest to Yokmir Cave
When you enter the forest, you simply have to make your way up north.
There might be a mob in this area but you can just run past and keep going.
You’ll end up in a bigger area with a few mobs. Head towards the top right and you should see two crates next to a cliff (pictured below).
Tip: If you can’t find the crates, you might have destroyed them. Simply exit and re-enter the area and the crates should respawn, though these crates are not needed to enter the cave.
As you near the edge of the cliff, the option to search will pop up.
This is actually the inconspicuous entrance to Yokmir Cave.
Interact with the area at this cliff and you’ll be given a choice to jump off or not.
If you’re ready to enter the dungeon, pick the “jump off” option.
Once you decide to jump off, there will be a short animation of you leaping off the cliff’s edge.
You’ll safely land on the rocky grounds of the Yokmir Cave. Thankfully you don’t take any fall damage from the landing.
This entrance is a bit unorthodox, but it’s definitely a breath of fresh air to not have to enter a cave through a dark and ominous opening.
But if you’re still confused about how to get there, this is the exact point on your map of Yokmir Forest that you need to find:
Yokmir Cave will be the first dungeon you’ll encounter in RF4 – which means it’ll take longer to clear compared to the earlier areas.
Make sure to have the proper weapons and armor to fight off the mobs, and be ready with healing items in your inventory.
If you simply follow the storyline until the point when you have to enter the dungeon, you should be at the proper level (or just a few levels away) to be sturdy enough to take on whatever lies in the depths of Yokmir Cave.
