How To Find Meaty Hide

Meaty Hide can be gathering from deceased Zamites, this is the only way to get it. Zamites can be found in the Frost Islands zone on Low Rank. Bear in mind that they come in two different sizes and the large of the two will produce two Meaty Hides each rather than the usual one from smaller Zamites. Though these monsters are considered to be 'small' they are on the bigger side and so be careful if you plan to take on multiple at once. Low ranks will mean that the player has a 38% chance of Meaty Hide dropping, as this isn't the highest possibility, it's best to take up a fight with a Zamite whenever possible.
