What is Thick Hide in New World?

New World Thick Hide is a Tier 4 Raw Hide, a material necessary to craft Leatherworking-related items. Within its uses, there's the crafting of Layered Leather and the subsequent recipes, such as the Layered Leather Adventurer’s Satchel. While it can be found by skinning any animal in any zone, it is highly recommended to farm it by killing predators in the Restless Shore area, since they have higher chances to drop it.

How to Obtain Thick Hide?

While any Level 40+ animal in any area has the chance to drop it, the faster way to obtain this material is by killing Level 40+ animals in the Restless Shore area, which will always drop Thick Hide when killed and skinned.
