2: You can also use butchering recipes to level up mining skills.
|Soft Hide||lvl 7-14||For Defiants, farm these from shadowtouched wolfs and the smaller wolfs around the shadowtouched. Shadowtouched wolfs yeld 2-4 soft hide, and smaller wolfs give 1-2 soft hide|
|Thin Hide||lvl 15-21||The best place for thin hide is just north or Gloamwood Pines between the two roads on the map. There is a small field there with Darkpaw Snarlers, Darkpaw Prowlers, and Gloam Bats, all drop thin hide and there is a small cave there called Deeproot Fissure where they are as well.
All spawn rather quickly so it is easy to just run around there and pick up a few stacks within a half hour.
|Medium Hide||mid-20s-level||Dropped by rams in ancient valley not boars.
Also dropped by Rotshell Grumbler (in Gloamwood). 4231.2546
Rock Ridge (in Scarlet Gorge) is another good place to farm (if you can stand all the humanoid mobs mixed in, which is trivial at higher levels). 4466,3553.
|Heavy Hide||lvl 30-32||Iron Fall
Mobs are 30-32 at the start can kill them fairly quickly and get 1-2 hides per Ironfang Stalker
|Thick Hide||about lvl 37||A great spot for getting thick hides is in Moonshade Highlands there are Ivygrumps at 6450, 1750 level 37 mobs easily killed allot of them nice respawn rate too.|
|Exotic Hide||more than lvl 40||Droughtlands in Carrion Heights, in the bottom right area of the map|
|Soulhide||lvl 48-50||A Good location for farming this would be Stillmoor.
Another location, which is based upon daily spawns, which change every day, would be behind The Chancel of Labors in Iron Pine Peak. This spawn point may be possessed by other monsters... it all depends on the day.
|Ironhide||lvl 48+||Beasts that require 225 Butchering drop Soulhide and have a chance to give Ironhide
