What monsters do I kill to get a monster hide? I've been trying to get one for ages but I still can't find any.

  • Killed a chort, no hide killed a necrophage, no hide. There is no guarantee that you'll get a hide even if you kill the correct monster unfortunately. – user114430 Jun 3 '15 at 15:25

Larger monsters can drop "x Hide". You can dismantle this, at a crafter, to get generic Monster Hide.

Example, Necrophage Hide becomes Monster hide and Monster blood:

Dismantle Screen

You can convert these items into monster hide:

  • Necrophage Hide
  • Troll Hide
  • Werewolf Hide
  • Ekimmara Hide
  • Beserker Hide
  • Chort Hide
  • Where do I find this monster called Necrophage? – Rhcfref May 27 '15 at 19:59

    @Rhcfref Necrophage is a type of monster, usually a carrion feeding undead, such as a Drowner or Ghoul – David Yell May 27 '15 at 21:47
  • The point is that it doesn't matter what type of monster you go after, as you can convert any non-animal hide into Monster hide (seemingly). You might also have some luck looting monster nests. – Jeeva May 27 '15 at 21:48
  • Yeah that's the thing though... I've been killing monsters for 2 hours nearly and haven't got 1 hide or anything that can be dismantled into one – Rhcfref May 27 '15 at 21:51
  • @Rhcfref Please see my updated answer. Hope that helps (carapace too). – Jeeva May 28 '15 at 9:28

I was looking for monsters to get monster carapace and monster hide needed for upgrades of Witcher Gear. Unfortunately I had already slain all big monsters, done all quests, destroyed all monster nests, etc (OCD anyone?).

But I found this cave I visited before with a bunch of respawned Devourers close to the entrance, a Harpy or 4 furthermore down the cave and 3 Erynia flying monsters at the bottom. On my first visit to this cave I had looted and killed everything, so imagine my joy that all these monsters respawned in between visits.

And - JAY! – I got me 3 Necrophage hides amongst others. And those can be dismantled into monster hides and/or monster carapace. You can find the cave next to the fast travel point of Clan fordarroch Forge – Skellige (south-west of Kaer Trolde).
