Hides are one of the nine major resources. Hides are used to create new armor and helmets with the Crafting skill which can be used when visiting a camp. Hides can also be used to update the bog of the homestead, so the player receives rations or herbs weekly. Apart from the homestead, they can also be obtained from:

  • scouting;
  • trading with merchants;
  • recycling helmets and armor (influenced by the repairing skill of the party member who has the highest rank);
  • gained as a reward from quests;
  • found inside loo table containers; and
  • can be looted from skin racks in areas, which give between 1-5 hides when the skin is removed.
  • Gained weekly when the blacksmith of the homestead has an upgraded armory.


In the table below you can find information of all merchants who sell hides.
