Tanning hidesEdit

Various animal hides can be brought to a tanner in order to make leather, which then can be used in the Crafting skill. Tanners charge you a fee for tanning the hides brought to them. This information is included in the calculations. You can also use the lunar spell Make Leather to tan up to 5 hides per cast without having to leave the bank, also granting 87 magic experience.

Canifis tannerEdit

A separate calculation is done for Sbott, the tanner in Canifis, who charges higher fees than regular tanners. When tanning it is helpful at times to use energy potions to maximize profits
