How To Earn Islanders Cowrie

Shane Williams

Patch 6.2 saw the addition of the Island Sanctuary which is an island that player’s can use to craft, farm and escape from the busy Warrior of Light lifestyle. This page will provide you with the necessary steps to obtaining Islanders Cowrie which is one of the currencies used to purchase things on your Private Island.

Speak with the Enterprising Exporter NPC to sell your items!

What Are Islanders Cowries Used For?

In order to start earning Seafarer’s Cowries you’ll need to first gain access to the Island Sanctuary which can be done by following this page: How To Unlock Island Sanctuary. Once you’ve gained access to the island, speak with the Felicitous Furball and complete Coziest of Cabins vision. This quest will take you through the necessary steps to finding the resources and building your cute little cabin.

Once you’ve built your cabin, speak with the Horrendous Hoarder and choose the “Purchase items with Islanders Cowries” option. Here you’ll be shown all the items that can be purchased with that specific currency. In order to get your hands on Islanders Cowries you’ll want to speak with the Enterprising Exporter NPC in your cabin, then select the Export Materials option. Here you can sell any items you’ve gathered for Islanders Cowries!
