Leather working is a specialized series of barrel recipes that players can use to convert raw hides into leather.

Required materials

To create leather, a player needs

  • Hides. Please note, the "huge" hide is not currently obtainable in the game.
  • Barrels to process raw hides,
  • A supply of oak logs, see chart to identify oak, to make tannin.
  • A bucket to transfer liquid.
  • A supply of lime or powdered borax.

Huge 5 10 L 10 4 3
Large 3 6 L 6 2.4 1.8
Medium 2 4 L 4 1.6 1.2
Small 1 2 L 2 0.8 0.6

Preparing the Solutions

  • A bucket holds 10 units of liquid.
  • A barrel holds 50 units or 5 buckets of liquid.

To make soaked hides limewater or diluted borax may be used:

  • Limewater: 1 unit of water and 1 lime makes 1 unit of limewater.
  • Diluted borax: 5 units of water and 2 powdered borax make 5 units of diluted borax.

Weak and strong tannin are both required:

  • Weak tannin: 10 units of water and 1 oak log make 10 units of weak tannin. The barrel must be sealed for 24 hours.
  • Strong tannin: 10 units of weak tannin and 1 oak log make 10 units of strong tannin. The barrel must be sealed for 24 hour.

Hide Processing Sequence

Players may only process one size of hide at a time, small, medium, large, or huge. Also, each of the sizes use different amounts of solution. Huge, large, medium, and small require 10, 6, 4, and 2 units respectively.

  1. Place the hides into the lime or borax solution and seal the barrel, after 20 hours they will become soaked hides.
  2. Put a knife and the soaked hides into your crafting grid to create scraped hides.
  3. Place the scraped hides into the weak tannin solution and seal the barrel, after 4 days they will become prepared hides.
  4. Place the prepared hides into the strong tannin solution and seal the barrel, after 4 days they will become leather.

The different sizes of hides also give different amounts of leather. Huge, large, medium, and small produce 5, 3, 2, and 1 leather respectively.
