I find that I need a lot of steel for weapon and tool repair. I also find I don’t use that much leather which leads to having a large amount of leather taking up space because I need tar for the steel. Is this a common imbalance of material usage? What can be done with the excess leather besides making and repairing armor? I use some for bandages but more often than not I use food to heal rather than bandages. I briefly tried farming coal for making tar, but it just requires way too much coal to make tar making it too time consuming and just generally too much of a grind.
I play single player and I like to use daggers and javelins and I’m currently up to ancient weapons. I like the javelin in particular because it allows a good deal of quick movement and a decent amount of reach. I kind of feel that both tools and weapons wear out too quickly.
