The leatherworking patch has been released:
Leatherworking utilizes 4 different materials to craft items:
Thin Hides: Used to make armor with average protection and low speed costs.
Thick Hides: Can be used to craft slightly more durable and protective gear at the cost of speed. (Can be crafted by leatherworker with thin hides)
Snake Skin: Required to craft rogues armor. (Can be obtained from giant snakes)
Dragon Scales: Requried to craft dragon scale armor. Different types of scales will add different abilities (Can be obtained from Dragons)
In addition to these materials, like blacksmithy/carpentry, some items may require accessory materials such as ingots or wood along with some level of blacksmithy and carpentry skill.
Besides the materials mentioned above to use the leatherworking skill you must have a leatherworker's knife and be near a hide rack. To open the leatherworking craft menu simply equip the leatherworking knife and double click on the hide rack.
Work orders and apprenticeships are also be available for players.
Some additional information will be available tomorrow.
The causes of the two crashes this week should be fixed.
Giant snakes can be found in the swamps, and mines currently. (movement animation to be improved at a later date)
Leatherworker's knives can be bought at the provisioner or made by a player blacksmith.
Hide racks for your property can also be purchased at a furnisher or carpenter's shop.
A new type of whip is available called a black whip that can be crafted by a leatherworker.
