If you find an area or mob that has good drop rates for materials please list it here,

Animal Skins (Leather): Pretty Common item to get

Animal Hides (Hard Leather): Level 4 Dodo's, Lower La Noscea, Cedar Wood, near "The Eyes/Red Rooster Stead" (this spot is AWESOME! So quick and easy to get 2 full stacks, possibly a broken loot table on this. I recommend taking advantage of it.)

Aldgoat Hides (Aldgoat Leather): Eastern Thanlan, Aldgoat Mid Teens for level, Easy to farm

Gigantoad Skin (Toad Leather): Eastern La Noscea, the toads can be found in the river X:17 Y:26 for some general map coordinates.

Boar Hides (Boar Leather): East Shroud, The Bramble Patch X:16 Y:23 The boars here shouldn't be hard the level is 20ish if I remember correctly

Raptor Skin(Raptor Leather): Eastern La Noscea X:18 Y:35

Coeurl Hides: Eastern La Noscea X:19 Y:28 for some general map coordinates.

Karakul Skin:

Peiste Skin:

Thanks for compiling this list. It might come in useful for me in the future (I'm currently in the Aldgoat phase).

The drop rate might be generous by design since Animal Hides are readily sold by the guild vendor at a fairly cheap price.

It would be interesting to find out what alternative sources there are for some of these higher level hides. I had farmed for these hides this weekend until I had about 80 of them. Later this weekend, I noticed that some level 15 and 20 Tradecraft leves gave Aldgoat Hides as a reward. The two Leathercraft leves that you can initiate at the Hawthorne Hut in East Shroud can reward you with 8 Aldgoat Hides. One of those two leves requires turning in one Hard Leather Espadrille. I don't have Botany and Carpentry leveled, but Elm Lumber was cheap enough on the market board that it was worth it for me.

I also noticed that there is a levequest you can initiate at the Adventurers Guild in Gridania that has you turn in 5 Aldgoat Leathers (which you can do up to 3 times on just one levequest). It can reward you with 4 Aldgoat Hides. So your basically only losing one Aldgoat Leather each time.

The big "if" with those levequests is that they don't always offer Aldgoat Hides as part of the reward. It seems to shift between offering the hides and offering shards. I don't know if that shift is purely random, or if it's cyclical. I also don't know what it takes to force the reward to change.

"Packing a Punch" is a triple turn in Levequest in Quarrymill that can potentially reward 10 Aldgoat Skin per turn in. Each turn in requires 3 Hard Leather Cestis.

Gigantoad skins can also be found in Thanalan, north of Vesper Bay. The Laughing Toads are about level 24.

Boar hides can also be found in the South Shroud, but this is only if you want some exp at higher levels while you farm. The boars here are approximately level 46.

Karakul skins, sadly, come from the same 5-6 mobs that drop Fleece for weavers. Approximately level 35, right outside Dragonhead.

There are Peistes outside Little Ala Mihgo (should be killable around level 30?), and higher level ones (over level 40) north of Camp Bluefog.

Sorry not to have exact levels or coordinates for the mobs, but I'm at work right now.
