How to Get Troll Hides

Get Them by Killing Trolls!

Get Troll Hides from Trolls

Troll Hide is an early-mid game material used to craft the Troll armor to replace Leather armors. This material is dropped by Trolls, usually found in the Black Forest biome. Trolls are formidable enemies so we recommend caution!

Look for Troll Caves

Trolls Spawns Near Troll Caves

To more efficiently farm Trolls for their hides, it is recommended to look for Troll Caves scattered around the Black Forest biomes and mark them on your map. This is where Trolls usually dwell and respawn, giving you a reliable source of Troll Hides.

Troll Caves can be recognized by skeletons at its entrance and a towering Troll in its vicinity. Be careful while exploring, Viking!

Dropped by Enemy

Enemy Enemy Lv. Qty. Drop Rate
Troll 1 5 100%
Troll 2 10 100%
Troll 3 20 100%
