In this guide, we’ll show you how to create a leather tunic. What you’ll need:
- A Crafting table.
- Eight pieces of leather.
Step 1 – Find some cows
0:17 – So, to get leather you first need to find some cows. Once you’ve found some, you’ll have to kill enough of them to gather eight pieces of leather.
Step 2 – Place the leather
0:27 – Now, place leather in the bottom-left, middle-left, top-left, bottom-middle, center-middle, top-right, middle-right, and bottom-right cells of the crafting grid.
Basically, you place leather on every cell except the top-middle one.
(You can look at your numpad, if you have one, and the placement on the crafting grid would correspond to the “1”, “4”, “7”, “2”, “5”, “9”, “6”, and “3” keys, which we can refer to as cells 1, 4, 7, 2, 5, 9, 6, and 3.)
Step 3 (Optional) – Hands-off the leather
And there you go! You’ve crafted a leather tunic! In terms of protection it isn’t much, but waaay better than fighting monsters in a shirt. Plus, the leather is pretty spiffy.
So, go you! Just don’t go charging any dragons in it.
