Some crafts in New World require Milk. You may have noticed this and wondered how to find or where to get Milk. For example, some of the foods you can cook with the cooking tradeskill will increase your gathering luck and therefore increase the chances to get uncommon or rare items such as Fae Iron or Petrified Wood.

You can also milk a cow to get milk in New World. For example, Sherry is a cow in the First Light Settlement. You can simply walk up to her in town and use the interact key to extract milk.

Sherry can be found within the First Light Settlement, right at this spot on the map:
The cows that reside in towns are located in First Light, Monarch’s Bluffs, Windsward, Restless Shore, and Mourningdale.
