Thick Hide is the next tier of Rugged Hide you can find as you travel north to the Dunley Farmlands and Hallowed Mountains. The animals unique to those locations drop 20 Thick Hide upon death and make for a quick and easy farm. You can find a list of animals that drop Thick Hide in V Rising and where to find them below.

Dunley Farmlands:

  • Hounds
  • Cows
  • Sheep

Hallowed Mountains:

  • Moose
  • Frost Wolves
  • Arctic Bears

For the most optimal farming route, start anywhere in Dunley Farmlands (whatever is the closest to your castle) and start moving east, killing all the animals you come across. Cows and Sheep are usually in pastures at the human farms, and Hounds often accompany the militia on patrols or in their encampments.

When you reach the Hallowed Mountains, spend some time there farming Arctic Bears, Moose, and Frost Wolves, then head back to your castle through the Farmlands to get some extra resources on the way out. Be careful, though, as the Hallowed Mountains are home to the Frostmaw the Mountain Terror level 53 V Blood boss. It’s pretty strong, but if you’re passing Frostmaw in a wolf form, it’ll ignore you.

Thick Hide is required to craft Thick Leather. Duskwatcher, Crimson Templar, Blood Hunter, and Dark Magus armor sets require eight Thick Leather for one armor piece, making it 32 Thick Leather for a complete set. They also require Hollowfang armor as a base, so stock up on Cotton Yarn and Wool Thread.

You can craft Thick Leather at the Tannery after killing the mentioned Frostmaw the Mountain Terror V Blood boss. You also need Oil to craft Thick Leather, and the best sources are fish (requires killing Finn the Fisherman) and the Hallow Wood.
