Thick Hide is one of the countless resources used for crafting in New World. Unlike some other resources like poultry, Thick Hide can be found in plenty of different ways.
Of course, Thick Hide is a product of animals in New World, and players will need a high enough level in tracking and skinning to even find this resource. The required level for Thick Hide is anywhere between level 40 and level 175.
Not everything in New World will drop this resource, but there is a list of animals which players can use in their search.
