Protean hide detail.png

Protean hides are used to earn Crafting experience without creating any items, rewarded from Treasure Hunter. Crafting catalysts can be used with protean hides. Protean hides, as with all protean items, can be converted at a 3:2 ratio into other protean items. Each hide takes 3 seconds to process, resulting in a maximum usage of 1200 hides per hour without Protean Powerups.

Experience[edit | edit source]

The experience given by each protean hide scales according to the player's Crafting level (unaffected by level boosts), with a marked increase once level 80 is reached. The exact experience given can be approximated to within 0.1 experience per item using the following formula:

Using the above formula, the following table lists the amount of experience gained from one protean hide based on Crafting level.
