Butchering Overview

Butchering is a skill that allows Adventurers to harvest extra meat and organs from creatures. This option is only available when looting a corpse if a Butcher Knife, or similar tool, is in a character's inventory. If a corpse is butchered, it can not be skinned, or have it's skull extracted. Butchering can also be leveled by extracting skulls, using a Skull Extractor.

Butchering Mechanics

Leveling Butchering

Failing an attempt to butcher a corpse will grant 1 XP. Successfully butchering a corpse will grant much more experience! If you loot both meat and a bone or organ, you will receive 3x the normal experience.

Collecting Organs & Bones

Organs such as Stomachs, Hearts, and Spleens can be looted while butchering a corpse. Bones, such as Femurs can also be obtained. The chances to loot an Organ or Bone improves based on the Anatomy skill of the corpse you are looting.

If you are looting a Sickly Tiger, the bonuses would come from Feline Anatomy. Level 6 Feline Anatomy grants Butchering yields extra bones: +2%, and Level 9 Feline Anatomy grants Butchery yields rare meat or organs: +3%.
