Survival is key in Conan Exiles, and if you want to do well you could use some Thick Leather. It’s one of the more durable armor types in the game, offering more protection than base Leather, with reduced movement as the trade-off. If it sounds like something you need, then join us as we look at how to get Thick Leather in Conan Exiles.
How to Get Thick Leather in Conan Exiles
As with most other resources in Conan Exiles, the only way to get Thick Leather is through crafting. You’ll need to find a range of animal pelts through hunting or scavenging more generally, before breaking them down into the more durable component.
Yes, to get Thick Leather in the game, you’ll need animal pelts. Most animals in the game drop pelts when killed, and a bunch of them will also produce Thick Leather. These are as follows:
- Bear Pelt
- Black Rhino Head
- Elephant Hide
- Elk King Head
- Green Dragon Head
- Grey Rhino Head
- Mammoth Head
- Red Dragon Head
- Rhino Hide
- Rhino King Head
- Thick Hide
- White Rhino Head
Once you’ve killed one of these animals and taken their head or hide, go to your Tannery. Luckily, it doesn’t matter how advanced your Tannery is, as it’ll produce Thick Leather all the same. Then place the above item in there, and the end product is two Thick Leather and Tar.
Of course, you’ll need a lot more than that if you want to produce durable armor. As an example, you need 45 Thick Leather, among Eldarium and Heavy Padding, to craft Vicious Bracers. Therefore, the process of collecting Thick Leather is one you’ll need to continuously repeat. However, it’s one of the game’s most important crafting tools. You’ll be thanking yourself once you’ve got some high-level armor to protect you!
