Clothing Materials

There are four types of materials involved in Clothing: Raw Materials, Processed Materials, Tannins, and Gems.

Raw Materials are the materials that can be found in the world on plants or wild animals. By themselves they cannot be used, but they may be refined into Processed Materials at any clothing station. Unlocking the “Plentiful Harvest” and “Master Gatherer” perks in the Lover Champion tree will also provide bonuses when harvesting. There is a small chance of producing tannins when refining raw materials. Plants are limited to certain zones and increase as the general zone level increases. Medium armor materials are linked to the level of the animal. Materials in battle-leveled zones are dependent on your level in Tailoring.

Processed Materials are used to make Light and Medium Armor.

Tannins can be used to improve existing light or medium armor.

Gems can be used to craft armor with traits, provided that trait has been researched on that piece.
