How to farm Leather in Palworld

If you want to start farming Leather as quickly as possible, there are a few Pals you'll want to hunt as soon as you've built your main base.

Foxparks and Melpacas both drop Leather and are close to your starting zone. Head over to the Grassy Behemoth Hills, which are just to the northwest of the Plateau of Beginnings.

While Melpacas are a little rarer to come across, you're sure to sight more than a few Foxparks the first time you run through these hills, so get started farming them to acquire some Leather drops fast. Even better, capture both a Melpacas and a Foxpark with a Pal Sphere and get these new friends to fight for you on your Leather-gathering quest.

Foxparks will additionally drop Flame Organs when defeated, which are required to make many important crafting recipes in the game like Fire arrows, Heat Resistant Armor and various saddles for Pal mounts. As such, farming Foxparks is the best way to get both Leather and Flame Organs early on in the game.

If you're in a pinch and need more Leather quickly, then you can always purchase some in the Small Settlement, which is the closest area to your starting location with shops. Head west of the Plauteau of Beginnings and you'll find the Small Settlement in an arid biome along with a Fast Travel point. Once there, you can speak with the Wandering Merchant to purchase Leather, along with other useful goods like Red Berries and Wheat. Keep in mind that you'll need 150 Gold Coins to make a purchase. You can occasionally find Gold Coins in chests scattered around the world, and from defeating other Pals, such as Direhowls.

While you're in the Small Settlement, you may also want to search the surrounding area for the warthog-esque Rushoar. These Pals hang out in the vicinity and are aggressive - you'll know when you've run into one, since Palworld's battle music will kick in as these hogs use their Reckless Charge ability to attempt to knock you over. Farm them for some more Leather, and be sure to capture one while you're at it.

All Leather crafting recipes in Palworld

Below, we've gathered a list of crafting recipes in Palworld that require Leather to make. We've done the same for other important crafting materials like Pal Fluids and Coal so, be sure to check those out too if you want to make the best base and best weapons in the game.

Armor is important not only for portection in combat, but various armor will also provide buffs against cold and hot weather.
