When killing these animals, they give you components that can be used in your inventory to craft Leather. Once you have a substantial amount, you’ll have to put the leather in a Tannery for it to become Thick Leather. If you don’t have a Tannery in Conan Exiles yet, you unlock it via the level 10 Tanner feat. After unlocking the feat, you can then make the Tannery with the following materials listed below.

  • 20 Twine
  • 38 Bark
  • 240 Stone

Once made, all you need to do is place the materials inside the Tannery and craft Thick Leather via the recipe option. Once done, you can then use the Thick Leather to craft various materials that can be later crafted into Armor or weapons. Hopefully, this guide helps you survive in the harsh world of Conan Exiles.
