Retreat to Enen: How to Get Groomed Skin

Retreat to Enen: How to Get Groomed Skin

Dried Hide is used in a handful of crafting recipes in Retreat to Enen, such as the Water Flask and the all-important Snowsuit. As the name suggests, it is not a raw resource like gemstones, obsidian, or northern lily. Instead, you’ll need to harvest Pelt and, well, heal him.

This Retreat to Enen guide will tell you everything you need to know about healed hide, from which animals to hunt to which crafting station to build.

Where to find the skin

Hide can be harvested from Rabbits in all three biomes and Wolves in Valley of the Giants and the Far North. Rabbits always seem to drop one pelt, while wolves can drop between four and six pelts.

Both animals are easier to hunt with the bow and arrow; the rabbit trap is far too inefficient to be worth your time, and the spear forces you to get too close to the wolves for comfort. But to maximize your effort, hunt wolves in the Valley of the Giants.

Once you kill one of these animals, activate your quantum control and harvest them to get the pelts.

How to make dried skin

How to make dried skin

To craft Cured Pelt, you’ll need to build the Pelt Drying Rack, which becomes available at Hunt Tier 2, after finding your first set of Ruins and Gold Meditation Chamber in Enen, the beach biome. You will need 6 wood and 4 dead plant fibers to build it.

Once you’ve built the dryer, simply interact with it by pressing “E” on PC or “X” on an Xbox controller and Square on a DualShock. This will bring up your inventory. Select a skin and it will automatically be added to the rack.

The hides take a relatively long time to dry out and turn into dried hides. You can check a hide’s progress by walking up to the dryer, which will display its completion percentage. Do not remove skins until they reach 100% completion; you will have to start the process over if you do. There doesn’t seem to be a way to add skins from any percentage of completion to the rack at the percentage where they were removed.

And that’s it for Cured Pelts in Retreat to Enen. To see all of the items that require materials, head over to our full list of crafting recipes here.
