God of War Ragnarok: How To Get Bonded Leather [4 Methods]

Learn all the ways that you can find Bonded Leather and its resources in God of War Ragnarok in order to upgrade your armor and gear in the game.

Bonded Leather is one of the most valuable resources in God of War Ragnarok that is required along with other materials in the game to upgrade the armor sets of Kratos. However, the major difference between Bonded Leather and other materials like Shattered Runes and Forged Iron is that you won’t find many Bonded Leather resources in the game.  

Key Takeaways
  • Bonded Leather is a crafting material used to upgrade a majority of gear used by Kratos in God of War Ragnarok.
  • You can obtain it by killing enemies and bosses such as Fraekni, The Zealous, Starolfr, The Troublesome, Bodvar, The Fierce, Hardrefill, The Callous, and The Huntress.
  • You can also obtain it by completing the favor quest, Freya’s Missing Puzzle Piece.
  • In addition, you can also find Bonded Leather in many red chests hidden throughout the Realms, so explore as much as you can.

1. Defeating Bosses And Enemies 

You will get most of the Bonded Leather resources from enemies and Mini-Bosses in the game. Mini bosses like the Huntress drop a lot of resources, including Bonded Leather. Therefore, it is important to defeat them so you can gain items to upgrade your equipment.

The Huntress will use different attacks, taking quite some time to take her down. She will use her bow to attack you from a distance; even her single-shot attacks can be quite powerful. The weak spot of the huntress lies in her horns that you can attack to deal maximum damage to her. 

After you have successfully defeated the huntress, you will get Bonded Leather. Furthermore, he will also get a Light Runic Attack, a Health Stone, and a Frozen Flame.

Bosses That Drop Bonded Leather

Bosses that drop Bonded Leather in Diablo include:

  • The Huntress: A stalker devoted to Skardi, providing a significant source of Bonded Leather upon defeat.
  • Fraekni The Zealous
  • Starolfr The Troublesome
  • Bodvar The Fierce
  • Hardrefill The Callous
  • Beigard The Feared
  • Svipdagr The Cold
  • 2 Sisters Of Illska

These bosses, along with others, offer opportunities to farm Bonded Leather as you progress in the game.

2. Completing Favors 

Completing favors in Diablo involves encountering various side quests with diverse objectives. Some favors reward you with Bonded Leather upon completion, while enemies encountered during these quests also drop the material. To track favors, access the Goal Menu.

For example, completing the side quest “Freya’s Missing Piece Puzzle” grants 1500 XP for Freya and rewards such as Steel Harmony and Royal Vanir Garments. Enemies like the Soul Eater in the Wedding Shrine of Freya drop Bonded Leather along with other crafting items like Hacksilver and Shattered Runes. Defeating the Soul Eater involves targeting its weak point, the chest.

Another favor yielding Bonded Leather is “Fit For A King,” where battling several bosses provides opportunities to farm the item.

3. Found In Hidden Areas 

Another way to get Bonded Leather in the game is to look for them in the hidden areas of the 9 realms. The hidden areas of the game have a lot of chests and treasures that contain valuable items and resources, including Bonded Leather.

You need to treasure maps to access these hidden areas. The maps will guide you towards their treasures, and they have drawings of some structures in them, so it will be quite easy to find the hidden treasure.

Some hidden areas are located In the Bridge To The Broken Poison, The Crater In Vanaheim, Pilgrims Landing In Vanaheim, the Locked Room At Noatun Garden In Vanaheim, and Baldur’s Mount At The Lake Of Nine. 

Luckily for players, many of these hidden treasures will drop a large amount of Bonded Leather and some rare and legendary items. By exploring and farming all the hidden areas, you will have enough resources for all Bonded Leather to upgrade your armor sets. 

4. In Red Chests And Coffins 

Last but not least, Bonded Leather can be found in large amounts in the red chests scattered throughout the game. These red chests are very distinguishable as they will give a red glow. They always have some other items, but almost every other chest will have Bonded Leather in them.

Make sure to keep an eye out for these chests in God of War Ragnarok. While early on in the game, you won’t find much of these, but as you progress, there will be a lot of red chests for you to open. 

You would also find Bonded Leather in tombs and coffins as well. In God of War Ragnarok, you will find a lot of tombs and coffins that are interactable and can be opened.  So in case, you come across a coffin, or a tomb, make sure to open it, as you might get your hands on some Bonded Leather.

Furthermore, when you are traveling to Svartalfheim, there is a unique resource of Bonded Leather there as well. Keep an eye out while crossing the lake, as sometimes there is Bonded Leather floating on the surface of the water.
