Pesky little critters, aren't they?

Once you’re equipped, you can start hunting down all manner of beasts in the woods for their resources. Here is how to get small rough animal hide in Pax Dei!

Where to Get Small Rough Animal Hide in Pax Dei

You can acquire small rough animal hide in Pax Dei from one of two sources: foxes and rabbits. They’re currently the only small game available in the world, as everything else—deer and boar—are more formidable and drop rough animal hide instead. As they’re a bit tougher to chase, hunt, and take down, you’ll likely have better luck swooping on like a hawk to take down small game.

The tough part about acquiring hide is tracking the animals necessary. As you can imagine, rabbits move swiftly, and they’re small. It’s easy to move on roaming through the underbrush. As for a fox, well, they’ll attack you on sight despite the size difference.

A single fox, which requires a few pokes with a sharp stick, will provide you with two small, rough animal hides. Coincidentally, that’s precisely how many you require!

Why You Need Small Rough Animal Hide

As you start to unlock additional crafting mechanics and resources in Pax Dei, namely leatherworking, you’ll open up the ability to construct various workbenches. The three key benches here include the Tanning Rack, Simple Leatherworking Table, and Leatherworking Table, all of which you require to produce better clothing and rudimentary armor pieces.

But it all starts with small rough animal hide. Upon acquiring your first bit of hide, you’ll unlock the ability to craft rough animal hide and, subsequently, the two workbenches necessary to start producing clothing.
