Albion Online: Where To Find Thin Hide

The easiest way to obtain Thin Hide or Thick Leather is buying at the marketplace but if you wish to gather your own and make some money on the way then keep reading this guide.

First, make sure you have atleast the tier 2 skinning knife, you can buy it at the marketplace or craft it at the toolmaker shop.

Now press M to open your world map and look at the clusters around your location. Hide-bearing animals live in forests, swamps and steppes but not in highlands or snowy mountains.

If you are in doubt, click into the cluster and you can see the listing of type and tier of resources available at the top of the cluster map. Thin Hides are Tier 3 hides so find a zone with tier 3 hides and you are good to go.

Tier 3 animals include wolves in forest biomes, giant toads in swamp biomes and cougars in steppes biomes. One thing about gathering hides is that the animal will never hand over their hides voluntarily so you will need to be prepared to earn some combat fame in the process.

This means that you can develop your combat skills and skinning skills at the same time.

In some of the lower level areas, tier 2 animals spawn all along one side of the cluster and tier 3 animals are mixed in on the other. If you find yourself in a cluster that includes tier 3 hides but you don’t see any then try moving to the other side of the cluster.

Thick leather is created from thin hides, take your thin hides to the Journeyman’s Tanner and you can create your thick leather from them.

That’s it, now you have successfully learned how to find thin hide in the game!
