But first, let’s check some general details and answer several FAQs.
Why Do I Need Leather In Tribes Of Midgard?
As a base material, it is needed to craft basic pieces of armor.
Most common and uncommon armors require Leather; so as you can guess you’ll need a decent amount to gear up your Viking, assuming you don’t want to play naked.
Here are several items that require this material:
- Villager Wraps
- Villager Pants

- Raider Armguards
- Raider Pants
- Raider Boots

Additionally, you’ll also need Leather to craft Oiled Leather, which is needed for better gear.
What Animals Should I Hunt To Get Leather?
In Tribes of Midgard, wild animals drop specific crafting materials.
For Leather you’ll need to hunt the following:
- Black Wolf
- White Deer
Keep in mind though that the drop rate varies.
Can I Get Leather From Defeated Enemies?
Yes. Enemies such as Brennálfar Warriors, Unsunken Warriors, and Goblin Warriors also drop it after you defeat them.
How To Use Leather In Tribes of Midgard?
Because this material is required to craft armor, you can use it in your village simply by talking to Borghild.
This NPC is located on the southern side of your village.
Keep in mind that you’ll have to upgrade the armorer’s station to unlock better equipment.
Best Tribes of Midgard Leather Locations For Early Game
Although you may think that the best locations to get this resource, are the forests near your village (because of the wild animals that roam around); in fact, you’ll get more leather from the enemies you kill.
Or simply put if you need it fast early in the game, you’ll want to raid the small camps near your village.
You can see one in the picture below.
What you need to do when you start the game is to get a sword or any other weapon, then you can raid these camps.
And you can do it naked too.
The enemies you’ll encounter inside these camps are quite weak and they have a high Leather drop rate.
On top of this, you’ll also get other materials from them and these camps contain chests you’ll be able to loot.
So, instead of hunting animals, look for the small camps near your village.
You should be able to find at least two nearby.
Once you clear the camps, head back to your village, and improve your Viking’s armor, then you can opt to venture north where a lot of wolves wait for you.
As you progress through the game, this material won’t be a problem anymore, but when you start your journey, it is mandatory to get it as fast as possible.
Obviously, if you have better spots to find Leather or even farm it, feel free to share them below and I’ll add them to this guide.
