Skinning Overview

Skinning is one of the possible "corpse actions" you can take after you defeat an enemy, provided you have some kind of skinning knife in your inventory. In general you are only able to skin non-sentient mammals. Tougher enemies will result in better skins, which can be turned into rolls, which can be crafted into gear.

In-Game Description

Skill in the act of removing fur or skin from an animal. You need to be carrying a Skinning Knife in order to skin a corpse. Corpses of sentient creatures, such as goblins and humans, can't be skinned.

Training Skinning

  • Beginning players can obtain a Simple Skinning Knife by helping Ivyn, or by buying one from Kleave in Eltibule

List of Skins

Trophy Skins and Exotic Items

Your chance of receiving special items depends on your Anatomy level for the type of mob that you're skinning. For example, at level 50 Cat Anatomy, you have a 5% chance of obtaining a Trophy Panther Skin from a Razorslash Panther. It's a bit easier to get Exotic Items: at level 49 cat Anatomy, you have a 14% chance of getting a Cat Eyeball from a Tiger.

Extra Skins

If your skinning level is much higher than the mob, you have the chance to get extra skins. Typically this is either the normal skin + 1 skin of a lower tier, 2 normal skins, or 2 normal skins + 1 skin of the lower tier.

XP Gains

Skinning an enemy successfully gives XP equivalent to the enemy's level, rounded up to the nearest multiple of 5. It seems that getting any extra skins or special items (e.g. cat eyes, pig snouts) gives another +5 XP for each skin/item. Trophy skins also give +5.

Failing a skinning gives a portion of the XP you would have gained from a successful skin.
